The Cellar is a Cairene institution. You know what to expect. Very Egyptian. And just the same after all these years (not in a bad way). Your neighborhood bar. Good music (great dancing tunes). And a decent vibe actually.

This is a solid 2 to 2 1/2 star hotel. Basic furnishings in the room (including a box TV, didn't know those still existed!). But importantly, staff was friendly, hotel was safe, and bathroom was clean. If you want more amenities, niceties probably stay at novotel or sofitel, but if you just need just a place to rest your head,...

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for one night and weren't that impressed. The services were okay, just average. The people at the desk couldn't speak very good English and it was hard to go anywhere/see anything without worrying about our safety. If you're staying for one or two nights it would be okay, but wouldn't recommend for...

Staff was great, accommodating, nice, and always willing to help. Rooms were great, comfortable. Bathroom was good, water was warm. Wifi only in lobby and restaurant, but whatever, who needs wifi all the time, it was just a short walk away. The breakfast was delicious, very traditional and with healthy options. Price was cheap, location was central to many stores....

This place is ideal for those wanting to be in the heart of Cairo yet stay in a peaceful and safe area (Zamalek). Walking distance to Downtown Cairo, lots of great restaurants and cafes around plus you have some great nile-front cafes/restaurants such as Left Bank and Lemon Tree Co within walking distance which is PERFECT. Rooms and hotel itself...

Came here with a group of ladies in March as we were unable to stay in our usual downtown location due to the troubles still happening there. Have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. A bit dated nevertheless the rooms were spacious and the bathrooms all worked great. The very top floors have some lovely roof terraces which are...
