I don't quite understand some of the reviews giving this hotel the thumbs up. Yes it's cheap but definitely not worth it, wouldn't even stay there again even if it's $1. The entrance to the building downstairs hasn't been mopped since The Great Depression years pre world war 2. The hotel rooms are actually on the third or fourth floor,... More

Stayed for 10 days in November 2013, my second visit. For the money, it's fantastic value. Only a few rooms, but they are clean and spacious with high ceilings and big windows, some with balconies. It's not your average cheap hotel - it has real character. Good breakfast brought to your room, and drinks always available - tea, coffee or... More

The staff at the hotel are absolutely fantastic, always friendly and with lots of helpful tips to get around Cairo including how to use the Cairo metro. They offered to write down addresses in Arabic to show to the taxi drivers (an amazing help with the taxi drivers in Cairo). The hotel was very clean, great air con in the... More

It was a brief stopover trip to Cairo and I was looking for a decent BB and was amazed with the review of this place. And I must tell you that what was shared in the reviews is absolutely true! I stayed here for three nights in March 2012 and paid only 28 USD per night (total 84 USD) -... More

My wife and I chose Cairo Downtown based on the reviews we've seen on this site. Quite frankly, those are almost all true: amazing service, very nice rooms, clean, great location. I wanted to point out, however, the extent to which the staff will attempt to make your stay perfect. My wife and I both ended up having horrible food... More

The Down Town Hotel is a small establishment on the third floor of a block of grand old apartments. The location could hardly be better. It's just off Tahrir Square, with loads of cafes, juice bars and restaurants where Cairo people like to "hang out". The Egyptian Museum is only 5 mins walk away, as are the Nile bridge and... More

This hotel and its staff are unforgettable. I was picked up at the airport, though my flight was two hours late, and made to feel welcome & secure at every turn.
