I don't know where everybody else stayed at but it can't be New Palace. This is the worst place ever. The staff was very pushy and only seemed to care about our money. My wife and I were stupid enough to let them arrange a tour to Giza but it was disapointing. Between the places you requested to see, you are taken to places where they try to sell stuff; papyrus, camel rides. At the so called papyrus museum it is ok if you don't buy anything but the guy who tried to sell a camel ride with his lies became unfriendly when we refused his offer.
Our room was filthy too. The toilet hadn't been cleaned after the previous guests left, there were hairs left in the shower, the matrasses were disgusting. The roof terrace looks nice but the plants that make it cosy are used by the cats that live in the hotel to do their needs. Mind you, this is also the place where you have breakfast. In Cairo, I also went to Each Way hostel: don't go there either. I also went to Pension Roma, which was pretty alright.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The open air roof garden is only one of the attractive features of this budget hotel. It's a legend among budget travelers and is still one of the cheapest places available in Cairo. The nice roof garden is divided into different parts. Every part resembles different culture of Egyptian life. The restaurant, open 24 hours, has an oriental sitting area, a water fountain and a billiard table free for the guests. ... more less
