This was great value. I paid only 16 British pounds per night, for a standard twin room with no bathroom, but they upgraded me to an en suite at no extra cost. Breakfast was also provided at no extra cost, and they were happy to make breakfast earlier than the arranged time if I asked. The only problem was that... More

Excellent location, between the airport and downtown. Very close to the Khan al-khalili market, which has lots of nice cafes and shops. The area is very safe (Daraseh) and residential. The hotel staff are amazing and very courteous. They gave us extra towels and cleaned our rooms daily. The room was very big and the beds were comfortable too. Good... More

The hotel is located in the Darasa area of Cairo, which is a 15 minute drive from the airport, 20 minutes to the Pyramids, 5 minutes to the Citadel, 3 minutes to Azhar park and a 5 minute walk to the famous Khan Khalili bazaar. There are several eateries, local convenience stores, a cafe and mobile phone shop within a... More

Nothing is free (not even a smile) after having argued with the front desk clerk on not paying for the taxi because they offered airport... More

This spot was highly rated on here so we have it a go. It's in a great location if your staying in Cairo for only a couple of days. The staff here are amazing. Helped us book everything gave us recommendations on where to go and what to do. I'd recommend to stay here just for that reason of the... More

The price is suitable for what it offers. The accommodation and breakfast are simple but sufficient. The service always friendly, concerned to serve us well and make us feel at home. You can book many tours directly at the hotel as well as airport transfers. On one day we took the tour to the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara and Dahshur,... More

This hotel is family-run and caters mostly to the Egyptian clientele but many tourists find it very convenient to stay here to explore the Islamic part of Cairo. It is in an area of Cairo that many travellers might find negative to their liking. But if you are an intrepid but cultured person, you will find this hotel and its... More

I stayed here in July 2013, in a time where there was supposed to be political unrest. On a night where there were 'Fire Wars' happening outside, the manager padlocked the doors. The Government also put the power out one night, and being a westerner, I was a little bit cautious, but they made me feel safe and very welcome.... More

I'm an American student and was visiting Egypt in early May with two friends from my language program in Jordan. We booked the Arabian Nights Hotel looking for a decent place to stay on a budget, which is exactly what it is. The management arranged a taxi driver from the airport to the hotel at a reasonable price, and we... More

Cheap and clean hotel in a nice neighborhood. But, beware the tours organized by the hotel are much too expensive. The staff is kind, but that kindness has a purpose! The hotel is situated in the islamic part of Cairo. Very nice to walk through. A taxi to the Tharir square cost about 15 pound(1,80 euro). The famous Khan al... More
