I booked this hotel and transport from Cairo airport using the hotel's home page. Things did not get off to a good start with the taxi not at the airport for me, and when I reached the hotel my reservation was not known about. However as it was winter a room was not a problem. Outside the arcade where the hotel entrance is found, the hotel sign was in a very poor state. The list lobby was dirty as was the lift call panel and that is indicative of what is to come. The room was very dated, the bed linen minimal, the drawers of the chest of drawers had been nailed together and the wardrobe had not been cleaned out in ages. The room was very cold and was warmed up using a wall mounted convector. Hot water was supposedly available 6hrs a day, the shower did not have a curtain which resulted in water going everywhere including over the loo roll! The "bathroom" furniture was very old with rotting window frames. The breakfast is 3 white finger rolls with a portion of jam and processed cheese with tea or coffee. The tea/coffee/milk jugs are impossible to pour from! The only redeeming features are the hotel bar where the bar-host is a real pleasure to talk to and the hotels location.
