I just stayed in the Baron for the 4th time over the last 12 months. I often get placed there by Egypt air on lay overs. I must say the Baron is basic at best, while the staff are friendly and try hard. Firstly the driver of the hotel bus drives like he is on a race track, this has happened with me in the bus before before, and common in Cairo, but with a buss full of passengers, please.
Baron allows smoking in the restaurant so you have people smoking while you are eating your breakfast and dinner. There is no water in the rooms and when I asked for some last night they charged me 3 euros. The internet in the lobby is good and about the only thing I like in the Baron. The deco in the rooms is 1980s style, but basically everything works. There are some english movie channels. The check in was fast.
Baron is OK for overnight transit, it has the basics, but I would not stay there for any length of time. It is an old hotel in need of some TLC.
