Where is good place to live in Cairo, Egypt?

I have a choice to be "Downtown" or a suburb, Maadi? I would be working in "Garden City".

    As everyone else mentioned, Maadi is quieter & nicer. Downtown is nearer to Garden City but is very crowded & noicy..

    Garden City itself would actually be optimal for you, although it would be expensive, and will need lots of search, but it is high class, clean & quiet (but very hard parking)

    Other good area can be Zamalek, it is one of the best places in Cairo & full of outings. It is also near everything & very near Garden City. So many foreigners live there!

    I would say Maadi because Maadi is quieter and cleaner.Downtown is close to everything you may need but it is so crowded and the buildings are not that great.

    However it would be better if you can check out the two places yourself and determine according to two things: the distance of your workplace , most likely this would refer not to the actual distance but to the available means of transportation that you can take .In many occasions the place can be farther yet easier in transportation than a nearer place.

    The second element according to which you should make the choice is how clean and peaceful the building is.

    Good luck.

    If u r foreigner Maadi will be a good choice.

    It is full with foreigners from all nationalities.

    Garden city will be too expencive if u look for a suitable flat.

    best wishes
