My mother and I were traveling alone in Egypt. This hotel made us feel safe and comfortable. It was clean and quiet. The breakfast was amazing, very delicious, a lot of options, and a very nice setting. They had a marvelous sitting area. The rooms were huge, the bathroom was great, water warm, bath tub huge. The AC worked well... More

My sister has a house in Cairo 10 minutes away from Horus. Whenever I go back to Cairo for a visit, not only do I stay at Horus, but so does my sister....the place takes us back to the Cairo of days. It's an old school hotel with old school furniture and old school food. I cannot really explain what... More

I have been coming on private visits to Cairo for years and I mostly stay at the Horus. It is centrally located in this far flung city. My brother and daughter also always come here independently. It occupies the fourth floor of an older residential building. No pre scripted 'have a nice day' type customer service here, it is genuine... More

We had stayed 4 nights in the Longchamps hotel on the floor above Horus House Hotel and it was quite a shock to stay our last night in Cairo in something so much worse. I should say however that we were grateful to find a room but at the same price as the Longchamps the place really was poor value... More

I read various negative reviews on this hotel but I rather enjoyed my stay, although it lasted only one night. The room where I slept was very spacious, with comfortable beds, television and air-conditioning, most importantly a clean bathroom and a quiet atmosphere. We were attended very courteously by the staff and the price was acceptable, as it also included... More

We stayed at Horus House for seven nights in April-May. We were seven persons in our group, different ages. We soon started to call the hotel "our home" . This hotel, inside an apartment building, has an excellent location in Zamalek, green and very quiet for being in Cairo, surrounded by private schools, embassies, good restaurants, clubs and nice shops....

The only real positive to this hotel is the location in the heart of Zamalek. Rooms are dated and worn with exceptionally noisy a/c units - take a good supply of ear plugs. Cleaning the room consists of making the bed and changing the towels. You never see a vacuum cleaner or detergents in the bathroom, in fact cleaning the... More

Very nice hotel in a fantastic neighborhood in Zamalek neighborhood in Cairo. The room was very nice sized, clean and comfortable, The staff was very accommodating and friendly. I loved the neighborhood! Not too noisy like downtown Cairo but very close to downtown. Plenty of places to eat nearby and an ATM almost next door. I highly recommend.

Showers hot and food and soup they made at dinner at night was wonderful and a satisfying breakfast was included every morning. We left Cairo to head to Luxor feeling as tho we were... More
