There's nothing special about this hotel other than the location. It's looks out over the Karnak Temple so you should try to get a room at the top. It's about 3 blocks from the train station which was perfect for me. I stayed 3 nights on one trip and couldn't complain. The staff was very helpful, but I don't know that they spoke much English as they only spoke to me in Arabic. There was a complimentary breakfast, 1 egg, 1 piece of toast and cup of coffee.
The McDonald's right up the street was the closest place I could find with Internet. It's right in the middle of Karnak so if you want to get to Nile (West Bank) you should walk around the North side of temple. Quicker and safer. Walk out the front doors and turn right. Be careful of beggars and people that want to scam you for money around the hotel, but they are all harmless.
