It was the only mid range hotel in Cairo. We are 30 years old and avid travelers at the point where hostels are cool but don't offer enough convenience. We looked at some hotels in the city center area and couldn't find anything in our short budget until we found the King. We could afford the extra $25 per day, at the time we paid $50 per night. We had a 3rd floor room with a king bed, two balconies and a great view overlooking the private street and the newspaper lot and had a great horizon view. The staff was friendly and catering, no bad energy and overall a great experience. What I cannot stress enough is the reservations. Egypt is one country that does NOT cater to walk ins. Anyone going to Egypt should realize that they need to book everything in advance, or learn the hard way.
