Certain neighborhoods in Beirut are myths in their own right. Achrafieh is one of these. A stone’s throw away from Gemmayze street, the Sursock Museum, Saint Nicolas Cathedral and Saint Joseph University (USJ), step out onto a balcony that has seen nearly a century of the city’s history unfurl beneath it.
It is in Paris, in the early 1980s, that Jamil discovered his passion in life: fabrics, textiles and their embellishments. Today, in Beirut, he designs oriental draperies and clothing, weaving into them the diverse and numerous influences that inspire him.
"Jamil not only provided awesome accommodation, but also tasty breakfasts, great advice on on things to see & do, restaurant recommendations and also great company. I am sure that if it weren't for staying where I did I wouldn't have had such a great time in Beirut."
In the heart of Beirut, Jamil invites you to stay in his Achrafieh family home, built in 1929. With its Art Deco furnishings and painted ceilings, it is a living piece of the city’s memory, preserved by one of its most steadfast admirers.
