This unique home is located in the heart of Islamic Cairo, adjacent to downtown. It has been tastefully furnished and features stunning panoramic views of Cairo's Mamluk and Ottoman-era minarets. The house is just a couple of minutes walk from al-Hussein and al-Azhar mosques, inviting guests to experience this part of the city in a far more intimate way than tourists typically have the chance to.
The flat has one bedroom with a vintage iron double bed and A/C + heater, a bright living room with a panoramic west-facing view (incredible sunsets!) that can accomodate three people on three futons, a study with a balcony, a small kitchen that has everything you need to cook and make tea+coffee, bathroom, and foyer.
It is located three stories up on a cobblestone pedestrian street with stunning views - of the historic monuments and local neighborhood, and panoramic views of the city.
The bathroom has a shower but not a bathtub. There is good hot water and water pressure around the clock.
The whole flat is for the guests.
Interaction with guests
I am happy to arrange for an airport pickup to bring you directly to the flat and/or a private car + driver for any far excursions during your stay.
Other things to note
Discounted long-term rental is available for researchers, mature students, and artists. Please send a direct message if interested.
This is a flat for mature guests looking to explore the area and take in its many architectural, historic, and cultural treats. We want you to enjoy the flat and the beautiful views but guests must be sensitive to local customs and maintain a sense of modesty. This is not a flat for parties!
