Reviewed June 19, 2011

Vacation in Egypt was my cherised dream, I could get a trip with my best friend. We had to be sure that everything was perfect since we come from Mexico City, from plane ticket, transportation, visits to touristic sites. I highlight the service we were provided in this hotel: cleanliness, facilities, and the warm and professional attention from all employees, what is a must to us, and price is reasonable. Location is excellent also to make walks. Inshallah (as Egyptians say) I will come back and my choice will be again Alexander Hotel.

Room Tip: Separate beds for comfort.

We had a great stay in Alexander hotel, the staff was very nice and helpfull. They told us about nice trips we could make and also about the sights in the area. The room was very nice and there was also wifi internet. Mostafa and Haitham were always there to meet all of our needs. Our room was kept nice and clean and also the common room was a nice place to eat the food that we bought in the area. The location of the hotel is also very nice, it's in downtown Cairo, but even though this is the busiest area of the city, the hotel is still quiet and we never had problems of hearing noise. This is because the rooms are all at the back of the hotel and not in front of the street, and if you ask me that's a real must have in busy Cairo. Because the hotel is in downtown, it's also close to the big shopping streets and the metro is also nearby. I'm sure i will go to this hotel again, it's a great place to stay.

We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights. What a wonderfull service these guys provide! Not only did i feel very safe here, i also felt very welcome and the guest service is amazing! Especially Mostafa Hosny was so sweet and good to us! He really provides service to his guests like with great information and helping us with all we needed. The hotel also provides good excursions with a great guide.
Also the rooms are very clean and the hotel is located very central in Cairo. Located in the crowded downtown area, but once in the hotel you feel the relaxed atmosphere and really can get some peace. I would for sure visit this hotel again!

Room Tip: Ask Mostafa Hosny to help you! Great guy!

We had a lot of fun staying at this hostel. The airport pick up was clutch. It was great not having to find a cab driver late at night and try to give him directions to the hotel. It's right smack in the middle of downtown so the location can't get much better. My brother and I had a lot of fun just wandering the streets of downtown every night doing some shopping (like REAL shopping ie: clothes, shoes, etc...not kitschy garbage souvenirs). There are also a bunch of restaurants (both Egyptian and American fast food) within a couple of blocks. That and a street my brother and I termed "hookah bar alley" is only maybe 2 blocks away (go out the door, turn right, turn left at the tall building with lights around the top, it's like half a block down on the right hand side). They are not lying to you about wifi in the lobby and rooms either like so many other hostels do. We were able to stream our American television over slingbox (www.slingbox.com if you don't know what it is) and watch all the college bowl games (ROLL TIDE). If you're at all like me, having decently fast internet is a BIG DEAL and these guys were up to snuff. The guide they booked for us was great too. Approximatley $100 each for two days guided tour of Sakkara, Memphis, Giza, Islamic Cairo, Coptic Cairo, a dinner cruise on the Nile, and a ride back to the airport. Had a good time hanging out in the common area surfing the web, noshing on "helwa", watching movies (American ones) on the TV, and meeting different travelers at night. There was a good mix of people in here. Americans, Aussies, a Russian or two, and some Euro guy that just said "Hello Americans". Highly recommended...where else are you going to get a private room in downtown Cairo for $20 a night?
