Via Iconia

Zamalek is by far one of the most central, vibrant, and beautiful districts in Cairo. It is arguably the favorite place to live and hang out for most of the residents, expats, and even travelers who want to see all the pretty sides of the Egyptian capital.

Zamalek used to be the home of the American University in Cairo’s dorms for almost two decades in a very prestigious and luxurious building called Iconia!

The landmark building was originally designed in the late 1980s by renowned architect Amr El Alfy. Iconia is recognized due to its dynamic look as it combines an arabesque design with modern architecture! In a great piece of news for lavish lifestyle seekers in Cairo, after some renovations, the building has been transformed into a luxury development with a variety of creative spaces for both living and working.

The building has 63 fully finished serviced apartments where you can choose from a studio, one, two, or three bedroom apartment! Some might argue that the apartments are expensive; as a one bedroom apartment costs around $900 per month. But with a quick look at the services, the price will make more sense.
