I only stayed for one night, so I can't make the right judgement about this hostel. For me, everything was ok except that I couldn't sleep because of insects. Also the internet connection was slow for some moments. My room was very good looking.

Pension Roma has a very grand entrance, a lovely lift and a polite concierge however, that's where it ends. We used the best known travel guide and this place came highly recommended. Old Egyptian Chic? Post WW2 room for injured soldiers comes to mind with yellow stained pillows and rock hard beds, there leaves a lot to be desired. After... More

Easily the best budget hotel in Cairo. Stayed for two weeks while searching for an apartment when I moved to Cairo, and had exclusively good experiences. Very helpful and charming staff. Simple but classic elegant old pension rooms. All travelers should be advised that downtown cairo is loud and dirty, and this pension is not immune to the neighborhood around... More

A simple and elegant place in Cairo, with a great price. Comfortable rooms, impeccable tidiness for a budget place, with an old world ambiance that many more expensive places simply can't match. This is not a place to dine in or to hang out, but to rest and sleep, it's perfect for me, and the staff is friendly and accommodating.... More

This pension is a wonderful hotel in downtown Cairo. It is kept to excellent standards. An island of calm in the mad rush of Cairo. I have stayed in some very bad hostels in Cairo and this is the best I've found on all measures.

This is indeed a lovely hotel with very friendly staff, good service, great location and amazing value! I have stayed there several times now. I paid about $15 for a single room with a modest breakfast included. But there is a restaurant in the hotel for other meals if you don't feel like facing Cauri's streets, free wi-fi, a pleasant...

this hotel is one of my favorites in the world. The corridor leading to reception and the lobby make you think you are in a hitchcock movie. The location is great for visiting downtown Cairo. you can easily walk to the Egyptian museum from there. The staff arranged for our taxi to visit the Pyramids and to go back to... More
