The hotel is very centrally located and is essentially opposite the Egyptian Museum and Tahrir Square. The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. The only issue I had was that even though the hotel is on the 5th floor of a building, you can hear the incessant honking from infamous Cairo traffic... More

They were always greeting us or offering to assist us with our visit, and there was someone available at the front desk 24/7. The hotel is able to arrange car rides or day excursions for you as well.

This is strictly a budget hotel overlooking Tahrir square and walkable distance from Downtown Cairo. Being on the 5th floor of the building and the with the windows bolted and shut permanently, noise is not a problem. Management is helpful and food is okay. Perfect for travellers looking of overnight stay!

They will take great care of you during your stay. I did a tour of the Pyramids and was fantastic! It's absolutely safe, centrally located to the subway, museum, and food. The view... More
