Overall, the hotel was excellent value for money. I arrived very early (7am) and they were able to get me into a room after only a short wait. The room was big with a balcony overlooking Tahrir square. So it was a little noisy but that is to be expected. The bathroom was small but very nicely designed and clean. The little restaurant was open most of the day for coffee and tea, but I mainly had breakfast there. They have free wireless plus computers that you can use for 10 pounds/hour - however they let me use it for a few minutes for free because I needed to download a document. They even printed the document for me with no extra charge.
The only drawback was when I left I paid $15 USD for the taxi (which was better deal than I could arrange) but the taxi driver complained that they hotel only paid him 50 Egyptian pounds. It put me in an awkward position. but this was minor issue.
