Post revolution, I don't think this hostel has much going for it. Our experience was so bad we chose to leave and find another place to stay. Having informed them of our early arrival, they left us waiting in the reception for two hours and then eventually took is to our room. This was a triple single room despite booking... More

This hotel is worth the money, clean and big balcony with beautiful views! Safe hotel, but the owner of the hotel is not very nice. He's very demanding about his money. Its not what he says, its how he says it. Its very close to stores and transportation. I recommend this hotel for budget traveller, but the hotel does not... More

I stayed here for 6 months. Abdou the owner, and all the staff, treated me with great care and respect. They are extremely friendly, helpful, and supportive people. The Hotel is situated right in the center of downtown and it was very easy to walk or catch a taxi to anywhere. Many nights we shared dinner take in from the... More

Stayed in Ramses II for 3 nights. Well, before getting in here, I've checked about 4 others hostels in the same street. The funny thing that all of them had the same price per double (about 120 EGP). But were completely different. The main thing for me is a private bathroom a bit better than a hole in the floor.... More

The Ramses II has an excellent downtown location, and because it's on the 12th floor, it was very quiet. The staff is helpful, our room was clean, there was no problem with hot water, and the internet use was fast and reasonably priced. I highly recommend this place as a centrally located budget hotel.
