Hotel Grand Royal is located at Talaat Harb Square, framed by other wonderful historical buildings, in Downtown Cairo. The location is a perfect starting point to breathe into Cairo. From here the Egyptian museum by foot is accessible in only five minutes, also the Nile river or Tahrir Square. The old Khan Al-Khalili, using taxi is just about ten minutes.... More

I don't understand how people expect versailles at this price. Staff are super friendly, you're given a bottle of water upon arrival, bed was hard but comfy, yes there's traffic noise, we are after all in downtown Cairo! I suggest heading to the Marriot if you're not prepared to deal with a really authentic Cairo experience...I always stay in lovely... More

My stay at Grand Royal Hotel was an amazing experience! I fall in love with Cairo all over again that I needed to extend my stay couple of times. The hotel is in the heart of the city; you can walk to the Egyptian Museum; Tahrir Square; shops/bazars; restaurants and historic places like the medieval Cairo marketplace “Khan Al-Khalili… almost...

This hotel has a good location for business trip, right in the centre of Cairo. National museum is 10 minutes walk, that is great. Not expensive hotel but comfort is enough for have a rest. I would like to admit owner Mr. Saleh and his managers, they are very polite and intelligent people. They will give you as much support... More

Everyone speaks English, Internet, great location, breakfast was delicious, very clean room. I must say I was a bit apprehensive to come to Egypt, but this was an amazing experience, it's a very peaceful city. My drivers and guides were very punctual and knowledgable. It was a short walk to the museum. They changed the flowers in my room everyday.... More

Right in downtown and convenient to ALL. Shopping area, local fast foods, Cairo Museum and more. Great wifi connection, high ceilings, clean room, right within budget and a very hospitable staff. Booked 2 nights, ended up extending another night. The balcony doors and high ceilings definitely make you feel as if you are "royal". Check in was very easy and... More

This is a nice budget hotel in Cairo that puts you in the centre of the city. The staff at the hotel are great and they gave us a free upgrade but remember its Egypt so things are a bit noisy and unique. Egypt is an amazing country and it's been a pleasure to travel, don't listen to the news... More

The street entrance and lift up to the hotel are a little daunting, but on arrival at the 6th floor we were greeted by friendly staff and checked in. As it was too late to go out, they kindly got us drinks and delicious falafel wraps from Felfelal, around the corner. Rooms were adequate and the bed was comfy. Not... More

The rooms where ok, nothing great, the entrance to the hotel was really dirty and the breakfast pretty basic, just bread, yogurt and some cheese. The people in charge of the hotel smoke inside of it in the reception. The hotel is near the cairo museum (2 blocks)
