Cairo Inn was the ideal choice for our 4 night stay in Cairo. It was well located in the downtown area and walking distance to the Egyptian Museum, River Nile and many great eateries and Souks. The room was spacious and well lit with a window looking down to chaotic Talaat Harb Square. The staff are always polite, courteous and... More

The Cairo Inn location is absolutely perfect. Walking distance to Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum and very near lovely local shops and eateries. The staff is as close to perfect as they could be - they fulfilled our every request and went above and beyond each and every time. Their advice was sound, their conversation captivating, and kindness was... More

Whilst this hotel is far from luxury, the location and incredibly helpful staff more than make up for it. Also, the balcony area overlooking the square is an amazing place to sip a beer and smoke shisha!

I love these old hotels, they give you a feeling of what Cairo was like before the Marriot and the Holiday Inn! The building is old but in very good condition. The room was simple but it was clean, had wifi and it overlooked the square. I had room #1, right beside the reception. I never once felt the least... More

The hotel is right on the Talaat Harb Square, the heart of modern Cairo city, next to the busy shopping streets, Tahrir Square and Nile River bank, and the Egyptian Museum. Some of Cairo's best restaurants (Cafe Riche and Estoril, both serving alcohol) are next door. The square-facing rooms come with balcony to observe street life (the noise level is... More

While on one hand I liked the location of this hotel, it being right in the centre of Cairo City with easy access to the city's attractions; I did not quite like the establishment itself. The rooms as well as service was below standard.

The hotel is very centrally located in Downtown Cairo, 5 minutes walk from the Egyptian Museum. However, the window didn’t shut properly, so ear plugs are a must. My room was ok, but the bathroom was mouldy and smelly. What I particularly didn’t like was that the staff wanted to sell me tours all the time. I relented in the... More

We came across this hotel by chance. We were asked by a gentleman in the street if I wanted to go on any tours etc. In the end, I managed to orgnaise a van to the red sea, 2 nights at the Cairo Inn and a taxi to tha airport resulting from that meeting. Anyway, the Cairo Inn is very... More

The location to the Hotel is great, close to everything but so are the other ( better) hostels or hotels around the area. Freedom Hostel and City View Hotel are just 2 examples. The rooms in Cairo Inn are old and barely acceptable. I arranged to stay the night but cancelled my stay due to the owner scamming me into... More
