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

There's a reason he has so many good reviews. The location and value are unparalleled. What might be even better are the connections he has for really great guides at an insanely cheap price. Nothing bad to say, excellent host.

We checked in for 3 nights and ended up staying 7 because this place is amazingly chill, cool and practical. It's suitable for various types of travelers, being it family, couples, friends, and definitely a great base for solo travelers! Thomas is a very understanding host and keeps up a great place for everyone to enjoy and can help with all the tips you need in Cairo and Egypt. Ahmed helps with whatever you need at the Loft to make your life easier and more comfortable. Highly recommend the place and would definitely go back again and not only for the great tea!

We loved our week spent at the Pyramids Loft! Thomas and his staff were so hospitable, friendly, and helpful as we planned our week! They have great suggestions, but I would encourage people to also have the freedom to say no and not feel pressured into certain tourist attractions. Overall, it was well worth the trip!

This is a good budget option for travelers wanting to see the Pyramids, which you can see from the roof of the facility. The room and bathroom and so on were pretty basic but Thomas is very energetic about helping his guests organize tours and so forth.

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 .
