The Berlin Hotel is a solid budget option in the heart of downtown Cairo. I stayed in one of the “deluxe” rooms fitted with air conditioning and an ensuite shower, both of which worked well. Despite low bandwidth, the wifi signal was steady and reasonably strong. Breakfast was basic but fresh. The one real liability is street noise, which is... More

We booked in advance. The manager and staff were very helpful and arranged a taxi in from the airport. We are not fussy, but found the place quite dirty-- cobwebs on the air conditioner, unsafe electrical outlets, very sketchy kitchen and shared bathroom. There are similarly priced places in the same area of Cairo that are more secure and much... More

Hisham and his receptionist went above and beyond to ensure I had a pleasant stay in Egypt. Hisham scheduled very reliable taxi drivers take me everywhere I needed to go. He offers get pricing on rooms and taxi service. Thanks Hisham and staff!

In the centre of Cairo but surprisingly hard to fine. Christian run, which meant beer available- better still if they chilled it! Hyped in Rough Guide for running trips to Pyramids. Didn't quite do that but has a nice old driver on stand by who took me around to all the sights for a very reasonable 270 pounds. Definitely one... More

The hotel is located in the center of Cairo, closed to the Egyptian Museum. The staff is honest and the director speaks a very good English (by phone because he wasn't at the hotel) and helped us with the pick up from and to the airport. The hotel has an ancient charme, and it can be considered not so bad... More

I hardly give a hotel with excellent mark , this is especially for the director Hisham A.Youssif, the hotel itself is not particularly outstanding, indeed the room is just reach "my standard request" (i stay the cheapest room, not sure the others), but consider the price, the service, the way they look after their guest, this hotel deserve to have...

First a word about Cairo. Amidst safety warnings, Cairo remains one of the warmest, friendliest and surprisingly safest cities I've been to in a while. Each traveler must of course exercise caution when choosing to travel, but my experiences here were nothing but positive. Now for Berlin hotel, with the disclosure that I was only here for one night. First... More

I stayed at the Berlin for eight days at the beginning and end of a three week trip to Cairo. I have stayed in budget and backpacked hotels in Central America, the Middle East, and Africa and rate the Berlin as an excellent value. My room was large and clean, with a balcony and ensuite shower, and the shared toilet... More
