The personnel was very welcoming and friendly. The rooms could be better cared for. Shower not working properly, bed sheets not so well. But the view on the Egyptian Museum was amazing. The hotel is situated directly at a street, so it is not quiet.

The ONLY thing this hostel has going for it is the location. You have a beautiful view of the Egyptian Museum and downtown. The room itself is dusty. When the windows are closed, you cannot see through them because of dust and splattered paint. There are flies everywhere because they keep the windows open. The attendant had to ask ME... More

Stayed here twice (for only a few hours) as part of the 10-day tour package I got from Habibi Tours. The agency I think owns the said hotel, thus being able to provide its clients with a transit stay. After arriving early morning in Cairo from Luxor via train, I was brought here so I could rest and shower before... More

We stayed 2 nights in this very noisy hotel, it looked like we were sleeping in the middle of the street! The location is opposite Egyptian museum, so there is traffic 20 hours a day. Plus there is a construction site of the Ritz Carlton Hotel. The hotel is clean and the staff is really nice but sometimes it is... More

Stumbled upon this hotel, when we were looking for a single night to stay prior to our wadi el ryan visit. The hotel is located directly across the Egyptian museum, but the location is very easy to miss, we only came across it by chance. The rooms are very clean, and the hotel is a budget one, but for the... More

This is an amazing hostel. I stayed here for a week and enjoyed it thoroughly. The hostel is located just perfectly opposite the Egyptian Museum, close to shops, the subway station and some coffee shops. From the balconies, you will have an amazing view over Tahrir Square, I was sitting there for many hours and really enjoyed it a lot.... More

Centrally located, they are in down town and close from metro stop, bus station, and a short ride from the train station. Right in front of the Egyptian museum, also there are plenty of shops around, snacks, and supermarket. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable particulary after a long day walking, they have balconies in some rooms,... More
