The reception was excellent. Nasr and Amr took great care of me. I was treated like a VIP. Rooms are a little small but very clean & well kept. Management (Said) made sure that I was happy & booked many trips for me with a personal driver. You cannot ask for more than that! Hotel Royal is located in the... More

I rate this hotel 5 stars it is excellent in a caring and hospitable staff. I feel those are two things that make the success of a hotel. It's small, but it's clean and the people are fruendly. It's also within walking distance from downtown. Thevhotel's location is a little difficult to find at first. My stay there was wonderful!... More

Had a great stay here. Had the room for about $20. It is a far call from The Ritz, but I challenge you to find a better room in such a good location near Talat Harb square for $20. The staff are english-speaking and friendly. The bathrooms are just glass enclosures in the actual bedroom, but it works. Water pressure... More

Small, friendly hotel in the heart of Cairo. Hard to find by taxi driver. Better print out the Arabic address. Small, clean rooms with comfortable beds and good air conditioning. Breakfast freshly cooked for each customer in the morning. Friendly reception happy to assist and give directions. I traveled with my mother and we felt very safe in this hotel.

Its absolutely a great place to stay while your in downtown Cairo. Its walking distance to several attractions like the Egyptian museum and the river Nile and tons of coffee shops and shops of any kind. This hotel is also mentioned in the Lonely Planet. The staff is also very welcoming and the rooms are very clean and breakfast included.... More

I made a reservation here at the last minute (in person) and they were very accommodating. The staff is friendly and non-invasive. I booked their largest room for a reasonable price. The rooms are clean, sheets are clean, and the breakfast isn't bad either. The ensuite room's bathroom is in the corner of the bedroom. This may take some getting... More
