My son Henry and I visited the hotel in May 2011. Decided on this hotel based upon location and having read some of the reviews. The location is great, right in the centre with the museum but a short walk away. At the end of the road is a great restaurant and along the road towards the hotel are numerous... More

If one wants to go to see Cairo`s old town, Tahrir square, Egypt Museum, etc. and dont want to spend a lot of money for a room, then this is the right place, but dont expect too much, the hotels website is very nice, but reality is different. The owner of the hotel is asking "please leave a rating in... More

I am currently staying at the Royal Hotel, and I must say, it is the best value for money you can get in Cairo. The hotel is located in the heart of the city, less than 10 min by taxi from Khanil Khalili Market and Old Cairo, easy walk from the Nile and metro station. The interiors are tastefully decorated...

Hotel Royal was perfect for someone like me - arriving solo, first time in Egypt, with lots of questions! The staff here are incredibly welcoming and sociable, creating a homely environment. The rooms are nice - simple and tasteful, with balconies overlooking the street. The location is perfect - very central so you can easily walk to the Egyptian Musuem,... More

Booked this hotel as it was highly rated and boy were we not dissapointed. The location is amazing, just a few mins walk from tahrir sq., the museum and the Nile. The rooms were spotless and furnished to delightful modern standards. Wifi was available throughout the hotel and continental breakfast was served either in the room or lounge area. Best... More

My room was very clean and bright, bed comfortable, lovely air conditioning, high ceilings (I like high ceilings!). The thing that pleased me the most was the staff. Very cheerful, professional and attentive, very welcoming. Khaled is a real star, but every staff member I met was equally friendly. If I visit Egypt again, I will certainly go back.

Firstly, the rooms were exactly as pictured on the internet. They were clean, big and the beds were very comfortable. The majority of the staff spoke some English so we were able to communicate easily. All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again, if the opportunity presented itself.

My experience at this hotel was one so memorable that I have to publicly commend the hotel and staff on this website. Why? I hear you ask, well let me tell you 1. My room was clean and well furnished with lots of cupboard space and a wonderful private balcony overlooking the street below. 2. Location. The hotel is based... More
