We loved the location but the traffic noise, the very dodgy lift and a bedroom carpet that was so dirty that it was sticky. We had intended to stay for two nights but legged it after one. The staff and the restaurant gave us no cause for complaint but the building needs a total renovation.

I cme here with my family for a relaxing break over Xmas, and had a great time at the Hotel. We booked plunge pool rooms on the top floor, which I would recommend even if you don't want a plunge pool, as the rooms and balconies are a lot larger. The rooms were very clean, and you could tell the... More

Note: I stayed here in 2008. I was really looking for an inexpensive hotel that is very near the subway and the Egyptian Museum so I landed in this hotel. Got it for $30 with breakfast. Hotel is just diagonally in front of the museum which was the highlight of my trip. The subway is just across so you can... More

On arrival the staff barely spoke a word of English and werent helpful at all. The elevator ws as old as the building and looked as if it was on... More

After one futile investigation into a building with the letters Sun Hotel on it, we spotted a massive hotel building with the impressive name of Cleopatra Hotel. We checked it out and returned to the group with the encouraging news that we could have 2 suites for just under $100 a night. Just the thing, we thought. We were all... More

We were brought here by the unscrupulous taxi service at the Cairo airport. Paid $60.00 for the filthiest place I've ever been. Left luggage in room for 2hrs, and returned to hundreds of cockroaches all over luggage, bed, furniture, etc. Freaked out!! They wouldn't refund money...and we were told "They're only small cockroaches"!!!! (we were told this was a 3*... More

The hotel is in the middle of a great area. Close to shopping, museums, the nile and popular 'night spots.' The elevators were BOTH indeed functioning during my visit, but still incredibly slow. Several staff were fluent in both English & Arabic. They were incredibly kind and friendly, giving us sugguestions for restauraunts near by, activities we'd enjoy while staying,... More

I was staying at this hotel from 1st to 8th of May 2007 Although the internet and the receptionist quoted USD 70 per night, I was able to get a room for USD 28 per night through a travel agent Ms Zooha. Thanks to her. The place is centrally located closer to the museum and shopping centres. The staff are... More

I used 4 hotels in Cairo. Cleopatra Palace was the worst. There are 2 elevators: one is completely broken, the other has broken automatic doors (so someone has to push them closed). The stairwell was locked. Cockroaches! Very loud traffic all night long from Tahrir Square and from inside the building. The laundry service bleached my colored clothes. The hot... More
