I stayed at Om Kolthoom for a month and I adore the staff there. Especially Simo at the front desk. He helped me when I was in tears, frustrated because I couldn't call out to the US and take care of a lot of issues with my car ins, credit card, etc. he calmed me down and helped me resolve...

This obviously, is not the nicest hotel I've ever stayed in. However, what it is lacking in amenities and decor, it is more than made u for in charm, hospitality and location. The hotel has been remodeled since I first visited and I am looking forward to visiting Cairo again soon, and making this hotel my base camp.

Different people have different expectations. What we wanted was a clean room with its own bathroom and a breakfast- we came to Cairo to see the city and its sights, not to spend a lot of time in a hotel. In the end, this hotel prooved not to be a bad decision. The hotel was nice in its peak years,... More

Sadly I have to agree with several of the other reviews - the entrance to this hotel gives the impression of 4* hotel but the room had seen better days, it smelled of stale tobacco, the bathroom had seen far better days (all the pipes leaked so the floor flooded, the bath was black from years of scrubbing it, the...

My boyfriend and I booked to stay there by booking.com. When we arrived the receptionist gave us an exchange rate that almost doubled the price we booked for the room. We left the hotel without staying there..Avoid it!!!
