The hotel provided an airport pick-up and drop-up service for a reasonable price, which avoided some headaches. They can arrange tours for you, although I didn't use this service. The rooms are basic but clean. It's an old Parisian-style building with rooms with big windows and high ceilings, so at the time of year I went (January) it was quite...

Excellent location in downtown Cairo, however it's only very average. The service is great as they are very nice and friendly although the night guard doesn't speak English. What lacks most is cleanliness...shared bathrooms/toilet and kitchen were just plain dirty and the room and in room shower were also very questionable. The sheets were clean though. Good mattresses. Very noisy...

The Berlin Hotel is a simple, very good money-for-value budget accommodation in downtown Cairo. It has easy access to the metro, free wifi and several shops and banks are nearby. But what made our stay special was the hotel staff, particularly its owner who did the utmost to make us appreciate our time in Cairo: upon arrival he warned us...

Very convenient location, 5 minutes walk from Tahrir and with 3 metro stations within 15 min walk and a bus station within 10 min. Easy to find, lots of shops and food around, extremely safe. They let us check in at 7am after a 10 hour ride train, which was amazing. The room was very big, clean, with two balconies,...

Berlin Hotel in Cairo is the perfect place to stay in the city on a budget. Located close to many of the sights, the hotel is in a safe neighborhood and the staff really went out of their way to make me feel at home. Breakfast was simple but fresh, and I really appreciated the length to which the owner/manager...

Staying at this hotel feels like stepping into Cairo's past. Berlin Hotel seems to be an 'institution' in Cairo which has been around for ages and certainly looks like it is trapped in time in a very charming and vintage manner! The room was clean and spacious and ours had a shower (no toilet). All of the WCs are shared,...
