The area surrounding Sharia Al Muizz has been one of the city's treasures since the time of Islamic Cairo's construction in the 10th century, due to its central location and as home to the city's most important buildings. The palaces, mosques and mausoleums dedicated to the wealthiest rulers were all built in the precious space surrounding this central street.

Darb Al-Asfar (the Yellow Street), where Bayt Al Suhaymi is located a few meters from Sharia Al Mu'izz, became one of the most sumptuous streets, where the city elites competed for properties near the palace where the popular Bayn Al Qasrayn (Between the two palaces), the title given to Sharia Al Mu'izz in the homonymous novel by Naguib Mahfouz.

Bayt Al Suhaymi, built in the 17th century was one of the largest mansions in Cairo. Recently restored after falling into disrepair in the 20th century, this house is now a beautiful example of medieval civil architecture.
