Felucca ride at 5 minutes
15 minute walk to Tahrir Place
The apartment is very bright and well air-conditioned, on the last 2 floors of a building. In addition to the 260 m2 of living space there are 2 large terrasses (and a smaller one for drying clothes), totalizing 110m2. View on 3 sides.
Yes there is only 1 (very spacious) complete bathroom, but there are 3 more toilets (!)
Friendly travel agencies nearby, and only 15 minute walk to a metro station.
By taxi: 15 minutes to the Fatimid (= medieval = Islamic) Cairo, or to the Old Cairo (= Coptic Cairo), 35 minutes to the Giza pyramids.
To be honest, our car is a rather old Suzuki Vitara, with a lot of bumps from our many excursions in the desert. But it works perfect. Actually one has to be rather intrepid to drive in Cairo. And maybe a bit crazy, because the taxi fares are extremely low.
