Great budget hotel in the heart of downtown Cairo. Spacious, clean & airy rooms. Nice & simple breakfast from 7.30am. Very warm, welcoming & friendly staff. Don't forget to place chess with the switched on manager Said.

I had a great time Hotel Royal. The staff, including Said, Ahmad, Sarah and Hiba was very nice, friendly and competent. The location is in the middle of downtown, so you can access everything on foot - wonderful! There are cafés in front of the hotel, but it's not that noisy as you might expect. Actually it makes you feel... More
