The property is managed by the group responsible for the award-winning Mara House of Luxor. While Mara herself is staying in Luxor, her son, Stephen and partner Sara will endeavour to bring the Mara House experience to Cairo. Cairo is an amazing city but, as you might expect of a city with 20 million inhabitants, it can be a bit daunting to the first-timer. Here s where we come in offering the luxury, comfort and privacy of your own apartment combined with the knowledge of the area and round -the-clock assistance provided by Stephen and Sara to make your stay in Cairo a memorable one. Downtown is an ideal location for your base during your stay in Cairo. Away from the tourist-only,5-star areas you can experience the real Cairo, a city of 20 million once known universally as the Paris of the East. While modern Cairo is expanding rapidly outwards, glimpses of this vibrant city s rich history are still evident in Downtown. The area is host to the Egyptian Museum, the American University in Cairo, numerous galleries, cafes, restaurants, bars and street upon street of shops to suit all tastes.
