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

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
