Sherif and Vicky were very pleasant hosts. Although it was a bit bumpy at first at check-in, due to their prior guests staying later than expected, I was able to drop off my things and everything worked out just fine. The location is ideal, walking distance to a supermarket, shops, and restaurants. It is also just a few minutes away from fun places in Rice Village and 15 minutes from the Medical Center area, which was very convenient. The amenities at the apartment complex are gorgeous too; with a beautiful park and lake that one can walk around, as well as a lovely pool area with a cascading waterfall. The pictures don't do it justice! The bedroom and private bathroom are definitely spacious, clean, and comfortable. The bed itself was fantastic: I slept really well! And the walk-in closet was gigantic. The view from the bedroom window was gorgeous and peaceful, of fountains and trees. It was wonderful having full access to the laundry, kitchen, dining and living room as shared spaces; but the hall entry to the bedroom and bathroom felt very private, as if it were my own wing! I was happy to just relax in my own space for a few days. Sherif was also quite generous in sharing his delicious Nespresso coffee, which made every morning off to a great start! Although I was a bit disappointed that guests would no longer have access to the business center and gym; I soon got enough exercise by climbing the many stairs to the apartment, walking to the stores, and strolling around the beautiful complex in the evening! I also greatly appreciated it when Sherif made me a delicious home-cooked dinner one night, since he is a busy professional with a very demanding career and new job. And he was also very accommodating to my requests, to ensure I felt comfortable when I was not feeling well. Although Vicky was out of town at the time, she was very helpful in communication. All in all, although there were a few speedbumps, I appreciated greatly staying at Sherif and Vicky's new home... so much so, that I'll be back again in a few weeks! If you are a considerate, kind and conscientious guest looking for a peaceful, quiet environment: this is a great place to stay.
