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

I stayed here for 5 nights in January 2013. I've spent 10 days in Cairo before and wanted to be near (but not on) Tahrir Square this time around. I like the main shopping street Talaat Harb and this hotel is 2 blocks away from Tahrir Square and right on Midan Talaat Harb. I booked this hotel so that I... More

This hotel wasn't booked by me, but it was central and convenient! The price can't be disputed or could the friendly and helpful nature of the staff! As other reviews have stated, if you want to experience the downtown hustle and bustle, convenience was great, but trying to sleep is a real issue because Cairo IS a noisy non stop... More

The room was alright for the budget traveler, don't expect anything past a bed, blanket, and pillow. My room specifically had a strange odor. Watch out for the scams. Upon check-in the owner will bring you to the hotel shop located around the corner of the street. He claims to be a farmer which is just one of the many... More

Only stayed here for the one night, and honestly wish I could've stayed for longer. Unbeatable location, friendly staff who offered me fresh mint tea, shisha and wonderful conversation for free. Eid is a great chap, happy to go out of his way to help you with whatever. Spotless rooms, great breakfast, comfortable balcony overlooking downtown Cairo... You couldn't ask... More

We would definitely stay here again. Perfect location, standard rooms, free wifi, private bathroom, cheap price. Perfect. Loved sitting on the communal balcoby watching the busy square. Yes it's noisy at night but that's awesome! Cairo is such a great place can't understand why people would complain about that.... They will remind you that they own the local bazaar too,... More
