Stayed at the El Tonsy with a group of 20 people for one night. The rooms were clean and tidy. The view was exceptional. The staff were outstanding. We arrived during a rolling blackout (no fault of the facility) and the staff worked hard to get us taken care of despite the darkness. We were taken to our rooms via... More

This is very suitable for short business trips when looking for an affordable place near Dokki or Mohandseen, the hotel room is clean, well maintained, and a little bit small but you can live in it. bathroom and beds are clean, the room doesn't have any entertainment facility except the TV which is not always working, but for me it...

Wasn't sure if I should stay there or not after reading the reviews in here but I thought I will give it ago because of the location and the price. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, made feel very welcome especially Hany the new manger. Nice airy spacious room overlooking the Nile but need some improvement.

The view over Cairo is stunning. When the weather is clear you can see the pyramids. Perfect for sunset The waiters are very friendly and it is a nice spot to hang out. with your friends. Food is ok\ you should definitely go for the view

Although it is not a chain or a luxury hotel, but located in a great centeral location, overlooking the Nile river, I can call it an economic solution, it's clean and neat, but it's not luxury at all, it's reasonable for people who seeks a good hotel with exceptional view and a low price, go there if you're one of...

El Tonsy (which means “The Tunisian” in Arabic) is a small hotel, set in an unusual way: all the rooms are on the 16th floor (the lower floors are apartments and offices unrelated to the hotel) and the restaurant is on the 18th floor; an elevator serves only the first, 16th and 18th floors. I happened to stay two times... More

The hotel itself is a budget hotel and good as a base to explore Cairo. The rooms were actually much nicer than I thought they would be. our room had massive windows with a lovely view of the city! There is a cafe/bar roofrop area which was quite nice with a view of the Nile. The breakfast was quite nice,... More
