If you want to be able to access and see most of Cairo then you can't go wrong with this property. Staff are very friendly and speak English. They owner is particularly considerate and gave good advice on navigating the city. Also, the price was very good!

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,... More

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... More

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,... More

I was in this hotel 2 times and for a quite long stay, the place is clean, the staff is very friendly and helpful and the location is great, less then 10 minutes away for the Musuems and underground station.

I had recently finished up college and wanted to do something wicked fun and memorable before I had obligations. I decided to join a friend who was traveling to Cairo for a week.

Friendly staff. Good location. Good breakfast. Very simple, but I had no problems in there. Old stuff, but if you are a backpacker, there's all of the things that you need to have a good trip. It was cool.

The Berlin Hotel is a solid budget option in the heart of downtown Cairo. I stayed in one of the “deluxe” rooms fitted with air conditioning and an ensuite shower, both of which worked well. Despite low bandwidth, the wifi signal was steady and reasonably strong. Breakfast was basic but fresh. The one real liability is street noise, which is... More

We booked in advance. The manager and staff were very helpful and arranged a taxi in from the airport. We are not fussy, but found the place quite dirty-- cobwebs on the air conditioner, unsafe electrical outlets, very sketchy kitchen and shared bathroom. There are similarly priced places in the same area of Cairo that are more secure and much... More
