Couched in the comforts of boutique plushness and nestled in the heart of Ashrafieh, the land’s historic multicultural heritage is captured in the picturesque Albergo Hotel, a refurbished Ottoman house located in the charming and traditional old quarter of Ashrafieh on Abdel Wahab el Inglisi Street. The Albergo Hotel, literally meaning the hotel in Italian, is a world in-between two worlds and the only deluxe boutique hotel in Beirut, preserving the Lebanese style and soul, reflecting a multifaceted country, at the crossroads of the Orient and the West.
In between its winding streets where the sounds of the city runs amongst its trees scattered here and there, Ashrafieh is definitely a love affair. Its luxurious apartment buildings combined with its renovated traditional houses and the dilapidated ones, its 50s, 60, 70s, and 80s buildings all seem like a charming movie set of a loved Beirut.
Some places exude elegance and a certain refinement just by there mere esthetic; such is the case of this beautiful Lebanese restaurant in the heart of Achrafieh. Liza restaurant occupies the second floor of former Abdallah Bustros’ 19th-century palace. Devised by designer Maria Ousseimi, LIZA’s historically charged, romance infused interior is a reflection of a very tangible reverie of old glamour infused with modern interior that flows from one room to the next.
