stayed here when i arrived to start my G Adventures tour. It wasn't that bad, there were some stores down the road where you can buy food and the breakfast at the hotel was pretty good. but you have to pay for the WiFi. see my blog at candysglobetrottinadventures.com

I did a tour with G adventures and good thing they gave us the upgraded room. Felt clean and didnt have to use sandals in the shower which is always a plus! I did a post night when we arrived back into Cairo and I got to see what the original rooms looked like. Outdated, old, and dirty. We had... More

Stayed here as part of a tour with G Adventures. Staff was nice, rooms were decent, good breakfast. Wifi in lobby that you paid for or got for free by buying something in the cafe. Can't comment too much on the location though as I had no idea where I was.

This hotel provided good accommodation at a handy location; walking distance to metro station (El Doki) and some restaurants, convenience stores and coffee shops a plenty in the area. (If you get time, the KFC around the corner only employs the hearing impaired so help out this worthy cause). The staff here were average, upon arriving, one staff tried to... More

We arrived very early in the morning and they were able to check us in early which was great. The breakfast was good, but I recommend getting threre early as they did run out of some... More

Santana is as close to average as they can get. Spacious lobby with plenty of places to relax. Free wifi with a purchase from the coffee shop; connection was average speed and reliable, but was lobby-only. Rooms are faded but clean, ample hot water. Location is several blocks from the Nile but is a little hard to find on foot.... More

The showers are nice and clean, blow dryer and the beds are soft! The location is great, lots of banks/ATMs, restaurants and stores all less then... More

We stayed here with a group on a pilgrimage that was meant to give us an experience that included cultural contact. Our room was nice, beds comfortable. The food was average. We did experience some noise from the street below during the night, but we are sound sleepers so it was not a big issue. The shops in the lobby... More

We stayed here as part of G Adventures. It is in a nice location, within walking location to many services and restaurants. The room we stayed in were large and clean. Wifi was available for a fee, but the cafe next door has free wifi.

The hotel looks like it was a fancy hotel. It has a spacious lobby, reception desk, staircase which give it a fancy look. Yet, it's missing character. The rooms are also quite big, with comfortable beds for a perfect sleep. The bathrooms could use a renovation in certain rooms... check if you have hot water! In my first room, the... More
