I know this hotel for years and years, and I expected that the management would improve the quality of the service....but still they stay at the same level (low). Just as an example: they do not provide hot water before 8:00 am and after 11:00 am. This si not very comfortable for the customers. The management is very sympathetic and... More

The Lotus is something of an institution in Cairo. Polished, first of all, it is most certainly not. It's very dark, strategically atmospheric, and crumbling in a rather decorous sort of a way. English is sporadically spoken, the decor is pure 1880-1950 and there's a good chance of spotting an impoverished archaeologist or two (probably me) when you are there.... More

I loved this hotel. It was what I would call shabby chic. Yes the hotel is a long way from its former Glory days of the 1940s but it is truly like walking into a history vault. I loved the original decor. My room was clean, and the old woman who worked there did my laundry and had it back... More

I stayed at the Lotus with my granddaughter over Christmas/New Year 2010/2011 just before the revolution in January 2011. I would have rated it higher but the room did leave a bit to be desired and we had no water each day for almost 12 hours and when we did we could not always rely on getting hot water.. Hopefully...

Would have been five star but my electricity went off - I told reception and no-one did anything about it. After a night on the town returned to a room with still no electricity and had trouble persuading the receptionist even to look at it. Threatened to leave and then he looked - all fixed by the flick of a... More
