On my first trip to egypt i chose this hotel as i had a few days to kill before continuing on my journey back to the US. The hotel is in a horrible area next to absolutely nothing. If you an afford to stay somewhere else please do. The restaraunt onsite hailed as a top spot is just as bad.... More

I stayed there 2 times and find that the got a double price politic, the tourist one is a lot more than the local one. That might be OK but the prestations are poor for the price paid. On my formula the evening meal was included, usually just correct meal, but when i take the hotel transport to get a... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times when traveling to Egypt. I found it charming and very cheap. They worked to handle the needs of my family, and on one occasion the needs of a large group of college students. The remodeled rooms are very nice and clean, even by American standards. But the older rooms have a lovely... More

My husband and I stay here if we need to stay in Cairo overnight. We live in Egypt and use this hotel because No.1 location and No.2 its cheap! I love the old charm, the wooden floor boards, huge staircase, old fashioned {and in working order whenever I'm there} elevator. The rooms are basic, good working tv, fridge and A/C... More

Great reception...lovely staff. The hotel structure is so amazing..with a bit of work, it would be amazing. However, rooms are really old-fashioned and dusty. Bathrooms a little grungy. Fine and with nice features like breakfast and dinner included. Fridge and A/C. It seemed like a Ghost hotel...not destined to last...without a huge influx of $$$$ Let's just say, when we... More

A hotel perhaps built around 1920 with much of its original charm and features, although cheap and basic in it's facilities, in a good location.Clean close to the Egyptian museum etc in the Talat Haarb area. We paid 200 le per night per room, including breakfast and either lunch or dinner. We didn't try the lunch or dinner but breakfast... More

This is an absolute dump! Actually my garbage can is cleaner than this place. We got there after a long flight. The sheets were stained and bloody. We asked for clean sheets and they said that they didn't have any!!! We had the same sheets for all our stay. After arriving in the middle of the night we were so... More
