2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

I stayed at this "hotel" during 2 short trips. The first stay was ok, my 2 friends and me shared a room which was quite clean. Careful with the sink (it was moving when touched). We had to ask for towels, which looked worn but clean. My second stay was horrible. Single-bedroom with shower, warm water was broken, no towels, the sheets on the only available bed looked used + cigarette-burns. When I opened the blanket, there were sitting 3 fat bed-bugs, hastily crawling away. As it was late night (1am), the desk-personnel who understood no english (but repeated "welcome, welcome to Egypt" about 100 times upon my arrival), had vanished.
There was no changing rooms and no sleep. Even if the price for this "hotel" is one of the cheapest to be found in Cairo, I can only recommend to those who are no bed-pet-friends: avoid this place at Talaat Harb 27!
Look out for a different place to stay. Go to Paris Hotel or Osiris Hotel, they are clean, well tended and with excellent staff speaking english and french.
Alternatively ask for one of the three-bed-rooms. They seem to be better looked after.

hanymoussa, Manager at Bella Luna, responded to this review, October 13, 2010
Interesting, isn't it, that this brand new TripAdvisor reviewer elected to wait until October 2010 to write about an alleged stay in November 2009, almost one year earlier, essentially to recommend Luna competitors (for which she did not write any reviews, suggesting she might not have actually stayed there). No further comment on our part is required, but readers' caution is.
