I got into this place angry, and for that I apologized later to the staff.. after having so many peoples hands in my pockets in tunisia I was sour...and even more sour at egyptian airport. 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

We wanted to experience the authentic life in Cairo and not stay in a luxurious but main stream hotel. We were not disappointed with choosing Arabian Nights. The hotel is placed in the old Islamic part of Cairo. The neighbourhood is old and shabby, but if you want to experience the authentic life in Cairo, this is a part of... More

Stayed with Arabian Nights Hostel for 3 nights at the end of January 2013. Not only did they surpass our expectations in accommodations, they win the hospitality award in my books. The hostel rooms are clean and well maintained, the shower in our room did require a hose, but other than that the room was great. Enough heat and blankets... More

Excellent hotel, the location is very convenient for many tourist sights, often more convenient than down town. Excellent breakfast on the roof terrace. Slightly more expensive, but rooms and facilities are better than down town hostels.
