It's quite uncommon, specially in Egypt, to find hotels in which the "private" space, i.e. rooms, is better kept than the common areas, i.e. halls, restaurant bars etc... This is the case: the entrance looks poor and you have to rise to the 5th floor by elevator to find the hotel, but house keepers, waiters and all the staff are very good, helpful and efficient. My 2 children and I stayed there for 5 nights and the room 515 was always cleaned up in a flash. Laudry is the cheaper and faster I've never found. Wi-Fi Internet connection is very good everywhere in the hotel and it's for free.
I red some people complaining about the noise from the street: well, you cannot stay in the very centre of a town like Cairo pretending to stop the traffic that animates the city 24h a day!
Actually to admire the town from the balcony, while hundreds of crazy cars are horning in a traffic that seems more an elemental force than a movement of cars, it's part of the show IMHO.
