Near the metro, near Egyptian museum, in front of the hotel is excellent and cheap breakfast place. Don't miss this hotel. Luxury You won't find here, but clean, comfortable and friendly staff!! They respect all travelers, they don't judge You according Your passport, unlike some other hostels in the area. Would definitely go back!!

It is a 10 min walk to the Egyptian Museum, a 10 min taxi ride from Ramses Train station. Hotel: art deco style, some... More

I know this hotel for years and years, and I expected that the management would improve the quality of the service....but still they stay at the same level (low). Just as an example: they do not provide hot water before 8:00 am and after 11:00 am. This si not very comfortable for the customers. The management is very sympathetic and... More

The Lotus is something of an institution in Cairo. Polished, first of all, it is most certainly not. It's very dark, strategically atmospheric, and crumbling in a rather decorous sort of a way. English is sporadically spoken, the decor is pure 1880-1950 and there's a good chance of spotting an impoverished archaeologist or two (probably me) when you are there.... More

I loved this hotel. It was what I would call shabby chic. Yes the hotel is a long way from its former Glory days of the 1940s but it is truly like walking into a history vault. I loved the original decor. My room was clean, and the old woman who worked there did my laundry and had it back... More
