We've been there some times. Prices are quite modest, the rooms are big, clean, and (very important in Cairo) silent. The location is excellent, some steps away from Tahrir Square, the Egyptian Museum and main atractions in the city. It's a very simple place, but you get what you pay for. I've never booked a tour with them but be careful to be explicit in what you expect for the money you're paying. In general, be careful with scammers all over the country.
The only uncomfortable part is that they asked for marriage certificate 'cause we were a couple.
