Ok places for a fair Price. Location is great. Rooms are comfortable. Nice and friendly staff. Ok breakfast. No luxury - but absolutely great for the price if you need a places to sleep and shower. I will stay there again if I go to cairo alone again.

Of course that is only my opinion it is the best. First you have the history, the staff is wonderful, they will turn on the hot water so you can actually take a long soak which you need after walking for miles all day. You need to ask for the one or two rooms with bathtubs. They are always clean,... More

We were pleasant surprised with the interior it is like stepping back into to 1930 but the service was very much up to date.lovely large rooms with old charm and the tours organized by Samir Fayek,s travel agency are very diverse and informative, and each time we came back to the hotel Samir was there to welcome us and asked...

This is a great old hotel, reasonably priced, clean and in a convenient location. The hotel owner and managers are super friendly and helpful, especially Marylise. The barrel bar is a classic old bar and there was a film being shot while we were there. The bar staff are exceptional and the food was really really good. Cons were the... More

Although the outside is nothing much to look at, the Windsor is a very cool hotel. The bar is old school and as cool as they come. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was very nice with great old furniture, but unfortunately only twin beds. The only issue was the air conditioning did not work well and it... More

There are so many things I like about the Windsor. First, the location: you can hardly find a better located hotel, as most of the decent ones (meaning other than the backpacking places) are usually found at best on busy highways along the Nile or in Zamalek. On the contrary the Windsor Hotel is at the heart of Cairo, which... More

When all is said and done you don't stay at this hotel for five star services. You stay at this hotel because you want to understand some of the history and feel of the old Cairo. If you talk to many people they would live Cairo be restored to its former glories that this hotel was a part of. The... More

I spent only one day in the Windsor Hotel but wish it had been a longer stay. This place has a most interesting history and this is reflected in many old photographs and newspaper articles located in the foyer, the bar area and the rooms. During the First World War, it served as a British Officers Club, and much of... More

Look out for Samir, the tour guide operator, he is honest, fair and has a good knowledge of the area. He like most of the staff are Copts (Christian), like Erian the receptionist who is also very helpful. Ask at the desk for Samir, they do fair priced tours of Alexandria, The Pyramids and other things at request. Also make... More
