This place has an impeccable view of the pyramids. Thomas, Ahmad and Mohammad were really good to us and offered paid, but affordable services to tour! Just a 2 min walk away from the entrance to Giza! There are also restaurants and shops around. We got picked up and dropped off at the airport so I felt really safe here! I recommend this place to anyone coming to Egypt!!

Excellent location, you can visit the pyramids all by foot, entrance is just 3 minutes from the place. The appartments are spacious, clean, well furnished. Thomas must be the coolest host in Egypt :-) Apart from the nice conversation, he provided all the help and tips we asked for. Serious and responsible guy, as all his staff are, too. Perfect stay.

The Loft was a great place to stay for a great price. Location is prime for all Pyramid activities. The view from the terrace is fantastic. Thomas was very helpful and happy to arrange tours/taxis/etc (even for my flight, which arrived at 1am). Highly recommend.

Чудове місце щоб зупинитись і відвідати піраміди. Неймовірний вигляд з даху, яким я насолоджувалася кожного ранку. Томас в першу ж ніч зробив приємний сюрприз і поселив в кімнаті з виглядом на піраміди. Дякую за гостинність. Рекомендую це місце як безпечне для подорожуючих одиноких дівчат.

The Pyramids Loft is a hidden Gem. Best view of the Pyramids and the best staff one could ask for. The location is incredible, clean air, walking distance to anything you need. Thomas and Ahmed went over the top to make our trip hands down the best experience I've ever had. If you plan to visit Egypt, don't stay anywhere else.

Going to Giza today is complicated. You really need someone to trust otherwise you will pay 100x more for everything you want to do. Staying with Thomas is great because of that. Listen to Thomas! Thomas has information for everything and works with the real prices. There is a lot of scams and crooks on the streets trying to get some extra cash. Don't get me wrong I always felt safe, they are very gentle and they suck you into their charm. Thomas will give you access to the best professionals with local prices. He is very clear with that, and he is fighting agains those scammers. He is wining! I rented a car and drove myself to Giza from the airport, but I just recommend that for experienced traveler/driver. Getting a cab is easy and cheap, but listen to Thomas he will get you a nice transportation and guides to go with it. The rooftop is amazing and you can see 80% of the Giza area. This is a safe place to stay and live your stuff ones you are gone. There is complementary coffee and tea, and can arrange with him some breakfast if you need. My buddy had some problems and Thomas was super helpful! I could not believe how helpful he was, he just stopped after everything was resolve. Thank you so much for all you help. Best wishes Dan

Thank you to Thomas and Ahmed for your big welcome and looking out for myself and my son while in Giza. Being so close to the pyramids was amazing, being able to be watching the light change on them throughout the day. If you don't like the bustle and business of the big city, it is very quiet here in Giza. It is easy to be at the entry gate to the pyramids by 8am and be the first ones in, it is very quiet at this time. The roof top is fantastic for the view and for meeting new people and also to share a cup of tea with Ahmed. Highly recommended

That was a brief about me;then I've been told it's too short and i should write more about myself; I'll quote some of guests reviews about me .
