I was first time in Egypt and reserve at Sun Hotel through Internet - and I travell with very tight budget. So I was ready for some difficulties. Being at Sun turns to be a perfect experience. Sun offers really more than that was told : Dormitory is large, with large single bed, so we benefit from friendly sharing a well designed space, without being exhausted with lack of privacy. Rooms are also of correct size. If bathroom equipments are clearly tired, everything is absolutely clean, and hot water actually available 24/24. A special mention to the perfect floor, wich helps a lot feeling comfortable everywher in the premises.
The location is just perfect, at immediate proximity of the Museum, of the Nile, of metro station, a very good starting point to explore Cairo. And, last but not least, the person in charge of proposing tours through Egypt (Hosam Ramy) is outstandingly able to understand and cope with the very various expectations each one may have with regards visiting the country. As for me, he solves brightly the challenge I was trapped in : litlle money, no large time, and an immense appetite to see a maximum of the various sides of hight Egypt. Ramy built a program combining great locations visits : Aswan, Abu Simbel (wonderful), Edfu temple, Luxor east bank (Luxor temple, Karnak temple) and west bank (extraordinary King's valley, Hatchpsout temple, Queen's valley, Menon Koloss) with moment of pure leisure, sailing Nile with traditionnal felucca, walking egyptians market... I come back full of images and feelings...
I warmly recommand to rely on this so convenient 'camp de base' while discovering Cairo and Egypt. Sarah
