I wish to be a citizen of the world!
It was great experience to stay at Thomas's place which has great view of pyramids very closely and very supportive to make the environment comfortable. He show me around the area of Giza and pyramids that is not something you do not experience if you are by yourself.
The home of Thomas is the best place in Egypt. In front of the pyramids, you can walk up to them, or rent a camel friends Thomas. Thomas was an excellent host, helped me with airport transfer, meals, a tour of the pyramids and could still attend a wheel Chicha (Narghile) and beer with your friends. Also, helped me catch the train to Luxor.
The bedroom, kitchen and bathroom are clean, the WIFI is very good and the bed is comfortable. The terrçao is an excellent place for you to watch the sunset taking a tea, coffee or a beer! The neighborhood is super quiet and silecionsa, you sleep peacefully, with only the sounds of horses and camels :)
Near the house there are several choices of food, Egiptin or American (like Pizza Hut), several small markets and bakeries where you can buy everything you need.
A casa de Thomas é na melhor lugar do Egito. De frente para as pirâmides, você pode ir caminhando até elas, ou alugar um camelo dos amigos de Thomas. Thomas foi um excelente anfitrião, me ajudou com translado do aeroporto, refeições, um tour pelas pirâmides e ainda pude participar de uma roda de Chicha (Narguile) e cerveja com seus amigos. Além disso, me ajudou a pegar o trem para Luxor.
O quarto, cozinha e banheiro são limpos, o WIFI é muito bom e a cama é confortável. O terrçao é um lugar excelente para você assistir o pôr do sol tomando um chá, café ou uma cerveja! A vizinhança é super tranquila e silecionsa, você dorme tranquilamente, apenas com sons dos cavalos e camelos :)
Perto da casa existem várias opções de comidas, Egipicias ou Americanas (como Pizza Hut), vários pequenos mercados e panificadoras onde você pode comprar tudo o que precisa.
Ahmed knows Cairo back-to-back and will go out of his way to make sure you are comfortable both in and out of the home, a perfect host. A very social space! I would highly recommend staying here to anybody visiting Cairo.
I can't say enough good things about this place so far. I have plans to stay in Egypt for a year, and I thought I'd spend my first week at the Pyramids loft and then go from there. Two weeks and about 30 new friends later, I'm still here, and I don't have plans to leave.
My time at the Pyramids Loft was great. Thomas was a really nice host, always ready to answer my questions. My first night he showed me around the town.
The loft is very close to the pyramids and has a great view. It was a little far from downtown, but you can reach it in about 45 minutes depending on traffic if you take a taxi to the metro. It won't cost you more than a few dollars.
The bed is comfortable and the wifi is good.
Wonderful stay. Thomas is a cool, accommodating and a very helpful host. The place was great, clean, comfortable (stayed an extra few nights). But the view from the terrace, for the money your paying, is a huge steal. Absolutely breathtaking.
Our stay at the Pyramid Loft with Thomas was awesome. Not a single complaint. Very comfortable, safe, spectacular view. Thomas was very helpful, always available to answer questions, and very accommodating. No negatives, only positives. Can't wait to go back!
Thomas is absolutely amazing. We cannot recommend staying here highly enough. The apartment is spotless, bed comfy, fully equipped kitchen, and bathroom with hot water! The photos of the place simply do not do it justice, you are literally the closest you can possibly be to the pyramids and the sphiynx. Every night we watched the sound and light show (which you could also hear almost perfectly) from the top of Thomas' roof. Upon arriving Thomas made us tea and ensured that we felt completely at home. Given that neither of us speak any Arabic, Thomas made sure to help us get taxis, showed us where to get delicious food, and tried to ensure that we got "egyptian prices" as frequently as possible. He also gave us an Egyptian cell phone to use while traveling throughout the country (we in fact used it several times to call Thomas and have him speak with taxi drivers when hand communication and broken english was not working!) We could not have been happier with our stay, and in fact, are spending the night again before our flight out. Thank you eternally Thomas!
Thomas is a wonderful host. He offered to pick us up and take us back to the airport and was constantly ensuring we were comfortable and enjoying our stay. He even lent us a cellphone to use to contact him and guidebook. He was helpful with tips and advice about the local way of life. The room was excellent with stunning views over the pyramids just a step outside the door! Would happily recommend staying here to anyone. Although Western travel advisories warn against travel to Egypt we couldn't have felt safer.
I had the pleasure of getting to know Thomas (Ahmed) about 6 or 7 months before my arrival. He is a great host and took time off to show me around, and when he couldn't be with me he sent me off with friends or tour guides. The house is like it is in the pictures and the view from the rooftop is amazing. I look forward to coming back here in the future.
