I've spent 13 days with my family at Eltonsy hotel. It has a great location close to every where. There's a metro station down the road and close to the market as well. It has a fabulous restaurant with a marvellous view on to the nile. Employers were very helpful and always smiling. I really enjoyed staying at this hotel.

The price is budget friendly and the staff are very nice and I even had small conversations with them every time. The people in charge at the Reception were very accommodating and helpful.

The rooftop cafe is just lovely! You cannot be in a better location for the price and quality of hotel. The hotel is facing the Nile river and you get a great view of the Great Pyramids from the rooftop cafe. It is also close to the Cairo museum and Tahir square. Great service, good food (rooftop cafe) and a... More

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

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.
