This site was a good value for the money. The first time I went, I had a three person room with a bathroom in the room so it was very convenient.

In Cairo you will not find better shelter, good service, nice facilities, very nice and attentive to your best days you spend there. Addition is located in the center of Cairo, close to many places of interest to tourists. Also organize trips and excursions you want.
