The furnitures are complete and such a comfortable place to stay. Good service. Such a a nice breakfast for me. And the most important thing is this area has a good coverage for mobile internet.Easy to get public transport.

Stumbled upon this hotel purely by chance. Was pleasantly surprised by courteousness of the staff members, who spoke English. Room I stayed in was clean, linen and towel was changed daily. Despite its proximity to infamously famous and famously infamous Tahrir Sq, it's quiet and free of troublemakers. Ahmed Mido is the guy responsible for arranging various tours in the... More

This is a good budget hotel with friendly staff. After check in I took the afternoon to explore the area. Unfortunately when I returned, someone went through my clothes (there was only one other person in the room and he was out all day) and helped themselves to my best pair of trousers. Good thing I had all my valuables... More

Stayed two nights in a shared bathroom room at the Sun Hotel. The location couldn't be better: it's literally steps away from the Metro entrance at Tahrir Square, so you're just a few blocks walk to the Egyptian Museum, the Nile River, and central Cairo's shopping dining and shopping areas. If you're coming by Metro just get off at Sadat... More

Sun hotel is a good choice for a budget traveller (like me), the rooms are more than sleepable, the prices are cheap, they do tours with a set price (take it or leave it) which are good. Excellent location, near pizza hut and other familiar western 'restaurants'. Best of all the owners are (strangely for Egypt!) straight up and honest... More

I was first time in Egypt and reserve at Sun Hotel through Internet - and I travell with very tight budget. So I was ready for some difficulties. Being at Sun turns to be a perfect experience. Sun offers really more than that was told : Dormitory is large, with large single bed, so we benefit from friendly sharing a... More

I stayed at the Sun Hotel for over a month. It was excellent--no fuss, cheap laundry, good breakfast, and good internet, excellent, safe, and centrally located. Hosam Ramy also offers great tours to various attractions, which is nice when hustlers are perpetually trying to rip you off.

The hotel locates in front of the Sadat Metro station and near the world famous fastfood restaurants like KFC. The clerks are friendly and the breakfast - 2 breads, a cheese and jam in the small packages and a cup of tea is included. It's quite a good place to stay. However, you might need to watch out for missing... More

My friend and I came to Cairo not knowing anyone, and did not know who to trust with all the touts trying to hustle you. We decided to stay at the Sun hotel because of the great reviews we read online, and they were right. Its a great place to stay and meet fellow backpackers. The place is pretty basic... More
