Waking distance to Egypt museum, which is the top place to visit. The street is a little bit noisy but I can sleep well. Stuffs are friendly and offered us as much help as they could! Thank you all! And breakfast is also included, so the room rate is quite valuable. By the way, the stairs, the elevator, the whole... More

Just a few minutes away, easy walking distance from the Egyptian Museum of Antiquities and the Nile River. The Golden Hotel is perfect for exploring the "Real Cairo" and if you like shopping Talaat Harb Street has numerous clothing and shoe stores for you. For me it was how centrally located it was, just a easy walk away. The Hotel's... More

5 minutes walk from Tahrir Square, in the heart of Downtown, this place is good value, with simple but fine facilities in the room. They allowed us to leave luggage for the day until our overnight train journey. The breakfast was fine. It's a shame that there are not more extensive communal areas as the room was rather small and... More

Don't get fooled when you enter the building! The entrance is on a very busy street just a couple blocks away from Tahir Square in central Cairo. When we walked in, we thought we made the wrong choice, but we were pleasantly surprised when we reached the third floor of the building. The Golden Hotel occupies the third and fourth... More

I've been coming to Cairo for 20 years and this hotel is perfectly located, a few blocks from Tahrir Square, right next to some of Cairo's most important restaurants and bars. For $35, clean room, very good wifi, very nice staff, cheap taxi to and from airport through hotel. It's perfect for single person, couple, or even family that doesn't... More

I've had many experiences with hotels in Cairo. I never found one that good for that price value. The old door of the building almost got me to think twice. It was the middle of the night, so I thought I should just give a try. When I got up to the hotel, I was actually glad I haven't left.... More

Stayed three nights at this hotel which is just a block from Tahrir Sq in the heart of Cairo, which makes it walking distance to the Egyptian Museum and the efficient subway. It's a nice hotel, clean with improvements in progress. There's dirt around the edges, but we didn't mind. The staff was helpful and nice enough to hold our... More

Don't let the scary street level entrance, dark stairs or rickety elevator discourage you. Wait until you get up to the 3rd floor lobby and enter this great little B&B in the heart of Cairo before you make up your mind. I think you will be pleasantly rewarded with a great stay. This small hotel with 17 rooms split on... More

We arrived at 3 am - and goit great rooms! Newly renovated, very clean. Very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - but the main "attraction" is really Sophie's information, comments, recommendations... And her helpfulness - even before you get there (and pay). Plus: the hotel is ideally located in the heart of modern Cairo, right where it all happens. You couldn't... More
