Previous comments about this hotel are accurate – it’s a very pleasant & friendly place to stay, good value for money and an excellent choice if you don’t mind the noise of the street and the bathroom set up. The streets at the front and the side of the hotel become outdoor restaurants, operating very noisily until late at night.... More

I only paid 30 dollars a night and got my own room, nice breakfast, own bathroom, nothing to complain about for the price. If the sheets covered the entire mattress, and the bathroom was bigger, and there was a desk (no desk in the room) it would be 6 star rating... It's good if you are a solo budget traveler.... More

My girl and I stayed here for four nights on september 12. We would come back again, no doubt about it. Nice, clean, cheap place to stay at. It is located on a busy commercial street and the atmosphere on the neighbourhood is nice (although a little noisy at night). But let me tell you something: WE FOUND HERE THE... More

This hotel is tucked in a pedestrian alley behind the Central Bank of Egypt. At night the pedestrian alley turns into several sheesha cafes. Yes, you can hear the noise from your room. but the noise dies down by midnight. i am an extremely light sleeper, but by the time you get back to the hotel, you are so exhausted... More

Downtown stationed Hotel Royal was quite a good experience. Close to most sights of Cairo like the Egyptian museum and the ever-busy Tahrir square. The staff was very helpful and the reception was open 24/7. They were also quite easy to communicate with since they knew very good English unlike most Egyptians. The building was very nice from an archtectural... More

This was an excellent hotel, located right in the heart of downtown with easy access to food and transportation. The breakfast was great (bread, omelettes, jams, cheese etc), staff were very wiling to help us with directions etc. When we had to leave early one day, they even packed breakfast for us. The street that the hotel is on is... More

Hotel Royal really was a great place to stay in Cairo. We were welcomed very late at night, and after a long day travelling we were shown to our rooms. We had breakfast everyday, which included bread, juice, eggs, omelettes, jams and butters. We were 3 students studying in Cairo at the time, so spent a lot of time at... More

This hotel deserves the positive reviews it's received. The staff are very friendly, breakfast was good, the adjacent streets are atmospheric, and the rooms are of a decent size complete with a balcony (rather bizarre bathroom arrangement though, but you'll cope). Ok, so that's the good stuff. Now for the not so good.... The location is very central, and provided... More

I had stayed in the hotel for 5 nights with my family. Had read the good reviews here and decided to give it a shot. It really is a hostel rather than hotel as not all rooms have TV's. That said however, the people made the stay there memorable and were very accomodating towards our requests. All in all a... More
