What you will love about this home
The large room is in a very large apartment on 2 floors (10th and 11th), with 2 very large balconies, partial view of the Nile and the Citadel,15 minutes by foot from the very center of Cairo (Tahrir). This option is for sharing the whole apartment with us. (For enjoying the whole apartment alone, see our other page "Large apartment in Central Cairo")

This is a room (see first photo) in an apartment to share with the lenders in the flat described on the GuestToGuest page ``Large apartment in central Cairo``. Below is copied the text for the
latter: 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 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. 4 guests is for the whole apartment (if we are not present). Otherwise 2 guests occupying bedroom #2 (and sharing the rest of the apartment with us), for a smaller number of points, of course.
Hosts would be happy to serve as guides.
