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

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

Stayed for 2 nights. Stayed on 5th floor with street view. Very loud all day and all night. Can't get too much sleep. Good value for money. Poor breakfast, tea and piece of bread with jam. It was not a leisure stay so can't tell the distance to any attraction. Only went out by myself once to the little juice... More
