I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and receive very comfortable arrangements. My flight was from Ethiopia and arrived at Cairo around 3 o'clock in the morning. Also, my departure flight was 2 o'clock in the morning. So, the owner of the hotel made a room available for early morning when I arrived and for late evening when I departed and charged me only one additional night rate.
I booked a single room with A/C, TV, fridge and private bathroom behind the reception. Room rate was USD 30/night as of April 2013 (incl. breakfast). Since I booked a hotel for more than 2 nights, they picked me up at airport for free of charge when I arrived. If you wish a taxi-ride for airport when you return, they arrange it for USD 10. Free wifi is available in lobby. Since my room was just behind the reception, I could also use internet in my room. You can change your USD into Egyptian pound at the reception. They applied good rate for the exchange (almost as same as the rate google showed). This service is particularly good for travellars who arrive in Egypt on Friday or Sunday when many banks close.
This hotel is located in the middle of Nasser Metro Station and Sadat Metro Station. Very famous Egyptian museum is also within walking distance. I was a female solo visitor and initially worried about security situation in Cairo. But this area is always populated and I did not feel scared even if I walked in the evening. I went there to take some exams, so sometimes I had to leave hotel as early as 7 a.m. Though staffs always slept on the couch at first, they quickly prepared my breakfast. That was also very nice experience.
