One of the best locations you can get if you are exploring Cairo, with a wide variety of local restaurants, cafés, cultural centres, art galleries, concept shops, local crafts shops and public parks, all at walking distance from home.
You can go for a lovely 25 minute walk along the Nile to reach down town Cairo, or reach the metro, and even if you hop on any taxi -try Uber or Careem instead- to go anywhere, it will be very affordable due to the central location of the apartment.
Very cosy and calming space. Around 60 sqm but with its non-cluttered arrangement and minimum simple furniture, you will not need more space. During the day there is no direct sunlight, but it is bright enough. In the evening, lighting options allow you to customise your light according to preference.
The mattresses and pillows are comfy and healthy.
The AC is in the main space (Tea Room). Most year round the apartment is cool in the warmer seasons and warm in the colder ones.
When you are renting the entire home, you will have access to the living room where the sofa bed is, the top of the desk, but not the drawer, the small side tables, the chairs, foldable table, but the long dark brown cupboard is off limits. In the tea room, you can use the wooden floor area only. The Japanese tatami mats are not to be used without a special approval. The beige hot water dispenser can be used, but only for boiling bottled water, and not tap water.
In the bedroom, the existing mattress and placed pillows are for you to use.
In the kitchen, you can use the sink, washing machine, fridge and stove. The plates and pots that you could use will be placed aside in advance.
The laundry room, you can use it to store your luggage, place your laundry in the laundry basket, and use the drying rack(s) for hanging your washed clothes. You can also use the movable hanging rack with the wooden hangers. The electric vacuum cleaner you can use, and please empty the dust after each use.
In winter you can use the small electric heater, which is rarely needed.
The wall long wardrobe is not to be opened.
When I am offering the entire home, I personally will not be in town, but one of my good friends could receive you for your check in, and if needed for your check out. You can ask him for any help during your stay.
