Other Things to Note
This is a family building, be nice to everyone.
Within your place, please feel free. If there will be parties on the roof, keep the music down after 11:00 pm.
Dina has been a lovely host, her and her family were very helpful at all times and responded promptly to all requests. I have enjoyed staying in this building. The neighborhood is safe and well connected to the main streets plus it's easy to find.
The beauty of this studio is that it has the roof. As the apartment is small, the roof gives it a whole other platform. Great for having friends over or just enjoying the sunrise/sunset etc.
The apartment itself is exactly what it says in the description small but basic. The building itself has no lift so be prepared to climb 5 flights of stairs on a daily basis but to be honest that is something you will get use to, it def. wasn't a concern for me.
Overall i have enjoyed my stay at this listing and will be sure to use it again :)
Dina was a wonderful host and ensured everything was smooth sailing. The apartment is in a nice area surrounded with good cafes and supermarkets. About 20-25 minutes walk to the metro, else you can catch a taxi on the main street.
Apartment is on the top floor of a building with no elevator, but this was not a problem for myself personally. The apartment was basic, but that was all I was looking for.
You have the whole rooftop to yourself to enjoy the sun, and the privacy was much appreciated.
Thank you Dina for making it a smooth stay.
I stayed at several diffrent apartments in egypt and i can really recommend Dinas appartment! Everything with Dina was very uncomplicated and the apartment was clean, kitchen and bathroom working, and everything nicely prepared (even some towel, soap, washing powder and mobile phone provided). Great value for very good price :)
Cosy, nice, good location ,convenient and has all what could be needed for few days stay -or even more- in a city like Cairo. Maybe with one exception of high staircase of 5 floors to hike wash time. It might be inconvenient after a long tiring day, but still a good exercise in a normal day :)
PS thanks for the friendly host for treating my foreigner GF a traditional dish , it was really a good gesture!
Dina is a really nice person and host. I was very glad that she always responded and took action very quickly, especially since we had troubles with the door lock, the fan and the fridge.
The apartment itself was less well equipped than I had expected, for example concerning the cuttlery. Our expectations about the standards of e.g. the inside of a cupboard, a mattress and a kitchenette also were far less modest than what we'd found in reality, to tell the truth.
However, I do understand what the "cozy"-part in the advert means. I felt like it was a charming place. Tiny, affectionately furnished and all alone on the rooftop.

About the Host, Dina
I studied engineering & worked for multinationals for quite some time. I then took a decision to quit the 9 to 9 job to become my own boss. In less than a year, I had already started several things. I did some startups in the food & beverages business, the travel & tourism industry, I made little dresses for my nieces, I developed iPhone apps & I wrote a short story that got published in a book :D
My prime passion is travel. I have visited 20% of the world (a lot yet to go!). I believe in freedom & taking life simply because we are all guests on mother earth until our time comes, so let's make the best of that journey.
When I am a guest, I will respect your house rules. When you are my guest, I'll let you do whatever you feel like doing :)
