What makes this apartment unique

This apartment is located near the Pyramids and the Sphinx of Giza literally at your fingertips. Near the apartment you can book horseback riding and scenic tours and services are easily available. There are restaurants, bars nearby, but if you want we can arrange excursions at a fair cost for the most popular places in the area and the Cairo City. Another that you must visit is The Pharonic Village, The Citadel and the famous Khan El Kalili 14th century market. An evening cruise along the River Nile will not forget for a lifetime, complete with music and belly dancers and dinner.

We recommend a visit to the amazing Tutankhamun gold buried in the Cairo Museum.

You are welcome

The view is amazing but the WiFi not so much

  • 4 of 5

The view is exactly as pictured, not too far from the East/Sphinx entrance to the pyramids complex and close enough to hear/see the nightly light show if you strain your eyes and ears a bit. The location is a little hard to find at first and it's almost impossible to reach the apartment manager by phone most of the time, but the neighbors are wonderful and super helpful. We grew to consider them very good friends and look forward to coming back just so we can visit them again (though you should be aware that you may be expected to pay some of them quite a bit for their services).

The apartment itself is more than adequate for most of your needs, but there are no hand towels, wash cloths, toilet paper, soap, or anything else along those lines, so it's difficult to wash dishes, etc. and you will have to use bath towels for your kitchen needs. Be prepared to buy or bring all of your own amenities. Also, the WiFi is extremely slow, when it works at all. One of our group members needed to work while on vacation and was unable to do so because the WiFi was insufficient. She ended up relocating to a hotel for the last few days of her stay (she's also a light sleeper and the street noises can be a bit loud throughout the night, so she struggled with that, as well).

Checkout time was flexible, so that's a huge plus when flights leave late at night, but make sure you're prepared to pay the remainder of your reservation fee in cash or via PayPal, because no other form of payment is accepted.

All in all, it was a great stay and I would come back again just to visit our new friends. And March was a great time to come. The crowds are smaller and the weather was great. Take a jacket for in the morning but otherwise the temperature was perfect!

And, if you want to do any sightseeing tours, ask for Ehab. He took us to Alexandria, Saqqara, and anywhere else we wanted to go, and his rates were competitive based on my research, but he was way better than any of the other guides we encountered at the various sites we visited.

Owner's Response: Dear Chrystal Excuse me because I have forgotten to put dishtowels and toilet paper. I forgot, but you know that every day I came to you to ask if you needed anything, and I give you my phone number, it was enough to tell me that and I will I carried these things that I had forgotten. For the rest of sheets and towels were provided. Internet in Cairo is still not fast and we have not yet the optical fiber. Our speed Internet in the apartment is 12 gigabytes, in this case when the line for our customers is slow, I call your provider and Vodafone and pay extra for a faster line they want, not more than 20 gigabytes. In any case I will pay more attention the next time for future customers. I want to thank you for your opinion, and we hope to welcome you again with us, and I promise you that I do not forget anything next time. Sincerely Soma

Absolutely fantastic lodging accommodation

  • 5 of 5

I recently booked this apartment for myself and some coworkers who were visiting Cairo. The apartment is within the shadow of the great pyramids in a neighborhood filled with lots of character and kind people. Everyone in the neighborhood was very helpful. So much to do right outside the apartment from camelback riding, atv desert rides, horseback riding, countless bazaars, great restaurants, oil shops, meditation shops and of course the Great Pyramids and Sphinx. Soma and her family are very attentive and insistent on your comfort and safety at all times. The apartment is beautiful and modern. Wonderful rooftop view and you can see the pyramids from your balcony and bedroom. Highly recommended.

We are happy to receive favorable appreciations from customers friendly and smiling as you. You are to make us love our work, and we always try to do our best. I hope you enjoyed visiting the pyramids that are a short distance from us. Usually we recommend to immediately reach the pyramids, on foot or by horse carriage, even better with horse or camel. We look forward to have you back with us again. Pending send our friendly and cheerful greetings, Soma Ahmed

Excellent location to see it all!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better stay in Egypt! The apartment is located in a small village on the outskirts of Cairo (we were able to walk or take a taxi into Cairo for groceries at a Carrefour, about 1 mile away). It is a comfortable and spacious apartment with a lovely balcony complete with a table and chairs and the view of the pyramids. The people around the apartment were remarkably friendly and helpful. We hired camels to ride right outside our complex. Don't miss out on the opportunity to see all the greatness in Egypt before tourism picks up again!!! And while you're there, this is definitely the place to stay!

"I visited Cairo with my ...

  • 5 of 5

"I visited Cairo with my family, total of 5 people. We had a nice stay in this apartment. It is a confortable, spacius and well equiped property. The view of the pyramids from the balcony is wonderful. Considering that Cairo is a city with urban infrastructure gaps, the vicinity of the apartment is not different from this. Therefore, the visitor must set his expectations having in mind this reality.

Most of all, Soma, the property manager, was helpfull and supportive in every request or necessity that we had. She was great!"

"What an amazing get-away...

  • 5 of 5

"What an amazing get-away!

Fantastic accommodation. Perfect for relaxing after a days sight-seeing. Friendly staff with a depth of knowledge, always willing to help and advise you. We not only had a great stay but a totally unique experience that was tailored to our needs. As for the location we really could not have stayed any closer to the pyramids hence the great views and ease at which we could explore the sights and Egyptian culture. An unforgettable insight to Egypt’s ancient civilization and a truly cultural experience. Highly recommended."
