This hotel is very nice for the low budget. Stuff / owner is nice and helpful. Hotel is clean. I checked this place before I booked a room. It was no problem to look at the rooms. Usually I prefer single room with bath. But here I considered different, as the room leading to the front with window to the... More

Although the hotel was almost empty I meet some great people there. both guests and staff. The hotel is clean, spacious and also very cheap. Later I travelled throughout Egypt with other... More

Stayed here for a week (repeat visit) and booked a single private ensuite room, which worked out to about £16 per night. I was collected from the airport for free, which was a great bonus. Took 15 minutes (no traffic at midnight). Room was huge with a massive king sized bed, air conditioning (lots of settings, which kept my room... More

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

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.

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
