Staff was great, accommodating, nice, and always willing to help. Rooms were great, comfortable. Bathroom was good, water was warm. Wifi only in lobby and restaurant, but whatever, who needs wifi all the time, it was just a short walk away. The breakfast was delicious, very traditional and with healthy options. Price was cheap, location was central to many stores.... More

This place is ideal for those wanting to be in the heart of Cairo yet stay in a peaceful and safe area (Zamalek). Walking distance to Downtown Cairo, lots of great restaurants and cafes around plus you have some great nile-front cafes/restaurants such as Left Bank and Lemon Tree Co within walking distance which is PERFECT. Rooms and hotel itself... More

Came here with a group of ladies in March as we were unable to stay in our usual downtown location due to the troubles still happening there. Have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. A bit dated nevertheless the rooms were spacious and the bathrooms all worked great. The very top floors have some lovely roof terraces which are... More

Arriving exhausted in the evening. The unprofessional desk clerk could not find my reservation. It did not help that I had a written receipt for my prepaid night and could show the charge to my credit card. He tried to sell me a hotel night at a higher rate. I was shown a room - dirty, dingy, smelly. The elevator... More

Aside for a very kind staff and its location, it is not very much worth the cost. The rooms are dark and run-down, the bathrooms do not look clean at all and the carpets are in need of substitution (or at least a decent clean up). Breakfast is included in the room rate but it is nothing extraordinary. For the... More

No kettle etc Hotel staff are very nice however and moved myself and baby to another room when requested due to the faulty a/c. Breakfast is... More

This hotel is very well located and has a very nice restaurant with nice views of the city. The rooms are avarage, the food is avarage and it is over all a bit old. Colours a dim and furniture is old. The service is very good and the employees are very kind. I travleled there in Feb 2011.

The breakfast was very ordinary because it was so hot the pastries dried out very quickly. The... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in November. Pros: Great location in Zamalek. Easy walking to 26th street. Cafes and shops within very easy walking (you're in Cairo...not a lot of street lights and sidewalks with holes). Great helpful friendly staff. Breakfast included. Free wifi in reception and restaurant areas (slow which isn't uncommon in Cairo). Our room was very quiet.... More
