The house rules are just common sense. Keep the shared areas clean and tidy.
Everyone here is chilled and considerate.
I read the positive reviews here, so I booked my room here. It's amazing. You wake up to the Great Pyramids. Thomas is an excellent host. Anything you need- help getting around town, recommendation on places to visit or eat, climb the pyramid- he's your guy. So do yourself a favor, stay at the Pyramid Lofts. And one last thing, I was a little cautious about going to Cairo, Egypt with the stuff going on in the news. During my stay, I felt completely safe. Even when I wandered off into the city.
The Pyramids Loft is the way to see Giza and the surrounding sites. Just as described and in a more quiet area. Clean and comfortable with a spectacular view from the roof top. Thomas is more than just a host. Going above and beyond to help you with guides and rides. He'll even unlock a few of ancient Egypt's secrets for you, haha. Highly recommend this to anyone!
You can't get a better view than the Pyramid Lofts. It is a sight for sore eyes! And you won't get a better host than Thomas. He really makes you feel comfortable and safe in a place many fear to even consider as a vacation destination. As one can imagine, it's not a place of luxury, but that's not why you come to Egypt. You come for the history and the exoticism of the culture, and you get that here at Pyramid Lofts. From the Great Pyramids in your front yard, to the camel and horse stables next door, to the people you share the terrace with and even to the local driver that navigates you around town, you are captivated by the splendor that is Egypt. Thomas accompanied us to see the pyramids and was able to get us into secret tombs some wouldn't dare enter. We literally got down and dirty here. (I fell into a tomb it was pitch black!) Just tell Thomas what you want to do and he most likely knows who to put you in touch with to make it happen if he can't do it himself. He also lent us an extra cell phone to get a hold of him if we needed anything while we were in the city since the SIM card wasn't working on my phone. I'm telling you this place is the best east of the pyramids. You can't go wrong here!
My husband and I spent two nights at the pyramids loft and loved it! Kindred spirits gather at the loft to share, laugh and live. Accommodations are modest but our hostess Thomas is what keeps guest coming back. Thomas is generous and kind and full of good advice. He is at your back and call 24/7. The other next most awesome thing is the rooftop, which has the most gorgeous view of the Pyramids especially at sunset. We definitely recommend this place and we will make a beeline for the loft again if we return to Cairo.
Thomas is, far and away, the best AirBnB host we have ever had. He was helpful, friendly, sat with us and gave us reasonable expectations for costs of things (this is really important in Egypt) and hooked us up with people upon whom he seems to have impressed the value of tourists not walking away feeling ripped off. I have never had such a scam-free visit to Cairo (this was my fifth time in 15 years). The only times we got ripped off were when we didn't follow Thomas' advice. (Seriously, just do what the dude says). More so than any other AirBnB host we've had, Thomas truly worked to guide us and show us the Cairo that locals enjoy. Thomas is a cool dude, very available and happy to help. His place is nice, comfy and, assuming the influx of guests that we experienced is constant, there are always cool, new people to meet coming through his area. The view from his rooftop is, just as he says, amazing. You can watch the sun go up or come down over the pyramids with one of the most unobstructed views of the monuments I've ever experienced. Again, just a flawless, stress-free experience.
Can't wait to go back and visit again when the new museum is open!
Thomas is hands down THE best person to know in Cairo. He is so helpful and goes out of his way to ensure you get the best possible tourist experience while you're here. Cairo can be a challenging place to navigate at times so having someone like Thomas is key. And then there's the view.
Superbe endroit que je recommende a toutes les personnes arrivant en Egypte, car Thomas vous conseil sur les endroits a visiter dans un pays que je ne connaissais pas encore, les personnes arrivant du monde entier se trouve reunis en face des pyramids, sur le toit de la villa avec une vue unique que je vous recommande a tous.
A very cool place and I recommend it to all the people who come to Egypt, because Thomas helps you out with all the places to visit in a country that you don't know yet, people from all over the world meet in front of the pyramids on the roof of the villa enjoying a unique view that I recommend for everybody.
