A great inexpensive hotel in the centre of Cairo. Food ok and beds comfortable. Brilliant location for getting around. Good entrance lounge to relax while the family get organised or waiting for local guides.

The service was so bad, had to tip almost every person, guests could NOT visit me in my room because of "hotel policy". Had problems with hot water, sometimes the elevator did not work as well. People on the street around it were too creepy, everyone stared at us, like we're some sort of aliens. I recommend that nobody stays... More

Skip it. I absolutely would NOT recommend this hotel. It is located in a very inconvenient area of old town Cairo. Good luck attempting to find any shops or restaurants near by. The hotel itself is rather old and run down. Definitely can't recommend the service at reception or the bar. Just skip it and find something else.

We stayed at the Victoria Hotel as part of our contiki tour. This hotel is good considering the location it's in. We were told this was the slums of Cairo so we didn't feel comfortable leaving the hotel alone. We were also told by many people not to venture out of the hotel because of its location. The hotel was... More

We stayed for one night before and after a tour in February. The hotel itself is in need of a total revamp and modernization, the place is so run down and dirty, it was disgusting the layer of filth on the furniture in the rooms, even the toilet!. We had no hot water in our first room and it was... More

Stayed here at the start and end of Contiki. For me my stay wasn't horrible but it wasn't pleasant either. The hotel itself just gave me an icky feeling; decor is extremely dated and old and has a creepy feel to it. Beds are extremely hard although I did sleep well minus to 5am morning pray wake up call. Breakfast... More

I'm still shocked that this hotel has such decent reviews on this site. I can't say one thing nice about this place. We arrived late at night after our flight from Frankfurt to find a pitch black hotel- the electricity had gone out. The guy at the front desk kept telling me it would be back on in 5 minutes.....30... More

We liked the sound of this hotel, it was near the train station & it was very reasonably priced. In the event our plans went haywire & we ended up spending part of two separate days in a room at the hotel. We were in desperate need of sleep & sustenance & the hotel did not disappoint. The room was... More

We stayed at Victoria hotel for 3 nights all up, 2 nights before our Contiki tour and 1 night after our Contiki tour. The staff are very friendly and go out of there way to help you out as much as they can. The restaurant in the hotel is pretty good as well. They were never busy when we dined... More
