Clean bed, free breakfast, good staffs. I made some backpacker friends living in the same room. The view from the terrace was so good. You can feel the noise of a busy Cairo street. Nothing to complain.

Some travelers might be put off immediately - there are much better accomadations elsewhere in Cairo (and much worse) - but, for the adventurous traveler, I say give it a try.
