I had a great time there even though I was there during tumultuous time. The staff are great! They're friendly and very helpful. They helped me planned other trips when I couldn't do my other trip and they made sure that I went on that trip so that I would have a great time in Egypt. But even when I... More

Family palace Hostel has a great central location and is run by very friendly and welcoming people. We had arranged a pick up from the airport with the hotel and although the plane was late for 1 hour the driver was there waiting for us, very organized and efficient. Upon arrival to the hotel we were offered several rooms to... More

Look, I get it, it costs 10 bucks, you don’t expect the Ritz. But after one night I moved to the Bella Luna where I am paying an extra dollar a night and the difference is huge. The Mesho didn’t have my booking, the airport pickup didn’t materialize, then the air con didn’t work (yeah, OK, I can just hear... More

Mesho and his colleagues are very friendly and love conversing and getting to know thier guestes every chance they get. Great place for young adventurous travelers wanting to experience the true character that is the heart of Cairo. You stay 3 floors up off the ground in a once beautiful 300 year old building with lovely balconies. Do not let... More

We stumbled upon Mesho Inn hotel by accident, we were actually looking to stay at Traveler's house hostel one floor above but ended up staying here instead. We were happy with our find as we were there during the 25 Jan revolution anniversary and Mesho and Islem cautioned us to be careful and gave us their phone numbers in case... More

If you've been around tripadvisor for any amount of time you will know reviews can be very misleading. You must consider the reviewers frame of reference to evaluate the review. Mesho Inn is a perfect example. By no means do the reviews match reality. As a hotel Mesho would score a one star on a typical AAA type hotel scale,... More

A great hotel in the downtown area! Really close to the Egyptian museum and the Metro station (Nasser). The hotel was clean and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend staying here

Mesho Inn was just right for me. I am a person of little needs therefore I had no issues. Mesho and his staff were very hospitable. The price was nice and the staff did their best to accomodate my needs. This place might be a good place for a solo backpacking traveller who isn't into luxury and high-ended comfort. For... More
