I have stayed in a number of the luxury hotels in Cairo, and although all of them have been more luxurious & had more facilities, I would never stay anywhere else in Cairo! The rooms are comfortable & clean, the staff all friendly & welcoming. Don't get me wrong the hotel does look a little worn, and it is probably... More

The staff are charming and the hotel is a real gem that I hope will never change, what a pleasure it was to stay in such a wonderful iconic hotel in the very centre of downtown Cairo. If you want real luxury, with a spa and a swimming pool then The Windsor Hotel is not for you, but if you... More

I liked the Windsor Hotel very much. The staff went above and beyond what I thought they would do. I needed a outlet plug adapter so they had someone run out and get me one! One of the front desk guys Samir Fayek, set my friend and I up with a 5 star three day cruise along the Nile. This... More

The Windsor Hotel is, as most guests attest here, not your average hotel. The building is unique, the rooms are stuffed with vintage/antique furniture, including a relic from its former neighbour, Shepheard's Hotel. The staff are unique too, with personality and character in spades. The owners, the Doss-Suters, are interesting and interested in their guests making this less of a... More

This hotel gets 5 stars from me not because it is a great hotel , it gets them because it is a wonderful hotel . It is an old establishment full of memories of the past . Not everything functions well and it could be considered a bit decrepid even , but it is fun , friendly and willing .... More

My son and I had a good stay at the Windsor Hotel. Nice staff, old decrepit furnishings seem like a time machine back decades ago. Some mosquitos bit us overnight, so combined with traffic noise it wasn't so restful. Tour guides arranged with the hotel are fairly good, though we were led to a Papyrus shop when we'd have rathered... More

This size of the title may scare some of you off, but there are some misconceptions about Cairo and its people that need rectifying. First, I am an American teacher living in Warsaw, Poland who had four days off to go down to see Cairo, Egypt. It was my first time to Egypt, and like so many, a fulfillment of... More

Not everything works in the hotel but it makes up for that by its charm and its caring staff. You are staying in a bit of history, the pictures on the walls, the elevator and the phone all are reminders of another time. Now Cairo needs tourists and we felt very safe. So do think of going. An added plus... More

I would highly recommend staying at the Windsor Hotel, it has a vibe you just won't find if you limit yourself to Zamelek or some of the big budget hotels. While staying at the Windsor I was introduced to a Mr. Samir Fayek. Samir took me on a tour of the city, to the pyramids, to the Coptic neighborhood, and... More

I loooooove the Windsor Hotel, especially the bar. I've been going to this place since the mid 80's and it hasn't changed since. This is very old school, like stepping into the past, it's full of charm.
