Stayed here for a total of 4 nights in June. It's about a 5 minute walk from Tahrir Square, the main square in Cairo, and it is well signposted from the Sharia Talaat Harb. About a E£25 taxi from the bus station in the evening, and E£50 to the airport.
The hotel is opposite an excellent fast food outlet, and next to banks and refreshment stands, and when I was there, all were used to a great extent.
The hotel itself is small on initial inspection, reached via an elevator from street level. The staff are friendly and love to talk and give advice to travellers and always offer to make your stay the best. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable, but the bathroom did leave something to be desired. It was small, and with hot water only available from 6-11am, one is slightly limited in cleansing options at some times.
The breakfast was average, with mint tea and bread with jam available for free, yet items like orange juice and eggs [omelette] were a E£7 surcharge.
Overall, the price you pay for the location that you get should make anyone want to stay in the Lotus Hotel in Cairo.
