We felt great at Lotus Hotel in Cairo. Of course, my expectations very low, but you can't expect that much for the low price you pay. Our room was simple, spacious, clean and everything worked like it should, also wifi. The staff was very helpful, the location is great in Cairo and it was relatively quiet. When we go again...

We have stayed in the hotel 3 nights. Nice hotel and located in the middle of Tahrir square. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Good value for the money for budget travelers if you are not pretending tourist. All facilities a bit old and needs to renew but its ok if you dont mind and just need a place to... More

We (2 grown ups and 3 youngsters) had booked a hotel Downtown to be close to the metro, Tahrir Square, and the Egyptian Museum, and the location was perfect. We were bringing extra towels, toilet paper, etc, knowing that this is a basic hotel, and we needed some of the stuff. Also, we were not surprised that the hot water... More

The cario lotus hotel is located near the heart of Tahir square...just down the street from shopping ..museums...restaurants....and fantastic bakeries. Minutes from everything ...you came to egypt to experience...always a taxi or bus waiting for you.. Quaint...charming...intriguing...clean..personable....food is excellent as is the hotel staff. Always a friendly word and smile. I came as a stranger...leaving as a friend.

Great location, right in the heart of downtown, but the building is very old and very run down. Really only one star standard. The owners are friendly and helpful, but a bit disorganised (think "Fawlty Towers").

Had such a wonderful time at the Lotus hotel. Emad and the other crew who run the place are absolutely lovely and honest people. As a sole female budget long traveller, this was a great place to stay. It was clean, met all my needs, and I always felt safe and at home here. Also, I loved how the Art... More

I returned to the Lotus Hotel for a 3-night stay while attending an archaeology conference in Zamalek. The Lotus will never be my first choice of accommodation in Cairo, I think that there are many other places at the same price range offering better accommodation. However what you get in here is a taste from the past and this time... More

I don't completely hate this place. There are pluses; it's cheap. It's central. It's near the visa office so if this is something you need to do it's only a 5 min walk. It's clean. Lift does not go to all floors so mobility is a problem. The better rooms are on the floor below reception but no lift access.... More

My husband and I have some trouble finding the hotel but we called and the receptionist greatly help. He was polite and nice. Our first impression, it was good. Quite cosy for us. And the room is nice too. We thought it offer all we can expect from a EGP155 room. Except for the hot shower. We waited till 730am... More
