The best of this hotel is the old but not dirty charming oriental atmoshere-really amazing.
The location is very good, 5 minute walk to Egyptian musem and Tahrir, next to Nile river. Of course if u want to visit other sightseeings, taxis are the only option. Rooms with view to Nile, good and safe neighbourhood.
Good service, poor quality of beds, not so clean rooms.
They let me to extend my stay without any cost until 17:00 o.clock. In the mini bar an open tuna fish was, but they clean it after 2 calls. Relaxing easy going service but u r in Egypt, it;s a part of your journey.
The breakfast was much more than average.
The price was good compared to other hotels in Cairo (Cairo hotels are much more exensive than those e.g in other cities and Sharm el-Sheikh)
I sure recommend it.
