“Nice architecture.. remnants of the past.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2012

Good if you're into Arabic AKA Islamic architecture and such. If not, don't worry about it. Right in the heart of the city, close to Khan El Khalili, so shouldn't be too much trouble getting there and back.

“Picturesque”

After visiting this house, this is what I imagine when reading about life in Cairo a few centuries ago. Can't believe how many pictures I took here!
