Nice hotel. Good location close to various attractions. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had the most marvellous time in Egypt! Staying at the Alexander hotel was wonderful! The owners were friendly and so helpful. From picking us up at the airport, to taking us into the Egyptian marketplace and authentic non commercialised areas of town. That alone gave us... More

Well they say 'hotel' but when I asked for a towel they didn't have any!!! Mozzi are around so bring repellent... Breakfast was very basic but nice to have a shower room 'ensuite' and there was a common room with tv plus u also have one in your room... Reception was also ok and spoke some English

The most important thing is the location of this hotel. It's central and you can go wherever you want in a short time. Most of the places you come to visit are around, close and easy to get. I like the tours and taxis services of the hotel and the booking as well.

A brilliant location and ideal backpacker spot, I really enjoyed this place and appreciated the owner and staff did not give me the hard sell of tours or extras which other hotels did, although the prices quoted seemed very good. The beds are very comfortable and shockingly for downtown you do not hear the traffic in the rooms. Negative points... More

We arrived in Cairo at 6:30am but were not able to check-in until 12pm. This should have been made clear before we arrived as the hostel was aware of our flight time. Also, the hostel tried to charge us for the supposedly free airport pick-up on more than one occasion, not to mention rip us off by arranging trips for... More

Alexander hotel has a great communal area, where you have breakfast, watch TV and can watch the world from the small balcony. It is right on the road, like all the small hotels I have seen in Cairo and has a great atmosphere. Rooms adequately do the job and are clean. Much nicer than most of the hotels and hostels... More

I had wanted to visit Egypt for some time, and now was the time. Prior to my travel, I read numerous reviews and forums about properties in Cairo. I decided that I wanted to stay in the downtown core of Cairo, as I would be getting around on my own, and wanted to feel like the area I stayed in... More
