“disappointed”
Reviewed November 4, 2009

The hotel is hard to find as there is nothing outside the building with the hotel name .
The elevator to reach the hotel ( on the 3 rd floor) is very old .
when you enter the " hotel " , ou realize it is nothing like what you can see on pictures . VERY small reception / breakfast area and lounge . The room we had was big but not very clean and the bathroom was very basic . Difficult to take a shower as the shower is EXTREMELY small .
Breakfast is VERY basic and dont wake up after 8 am if you want to have some choices ( it is basically only cookies and boiled eggs anyways ) .
When you ask for a taxi to go to back to airport , they charge you 70 egyptian pounds and it turns out to be a private car ( looks like they called their friends )
They dont take credits cards to check out ,
So , this hotel is not to advice at all .

good: easy to find, in the middle of the city, clean, shuttle airport(ONLY ONE WAY, unlike was written in they're web site)
bad: bare, mosquitos, very poor breakfast(if you wake up late you'll find only tea and biscuits).
They can arrange city tour but be careful: their driver will bring you to places where he can get a tip. We've done the Giza tour and choose camels out of the site: we couldn't go downt to sphinx 'cause we didn't have the official ticket.

I can consider Cairo Center Hotel as one of the best economical hotels in entire Egypt...It may not be as glamorous as the prominent 5 star chains of hotels but definitely you can have your most unforgettable stay in Cairo for the value of this hotel...This hotel is really a must to be choosen by practical travellers and backpackers for these reasons:
- best value for 26 USD per night with free bfast
- it's in the city center of Cairo; accessible to all public transportations and fastfoods
- hotel attendants are so helpful and always available for assistance
- free wi-fi and there's also free desktop usage at the lobby for those who don't have
laptops
It may have some shortcomings...but those are expected for budget hotels...
Cairo Center is worth trying! I really like it!

Stay away from this hotel. The staff will try to steal your money in different ways. Their plan starts with offering you online a room with discounted price, but when you arrive at the hotel, they will offer you a small room looks like a cage ( dirty, no window, no tv, no bathroom or toilet), and when you disagree with them, and tell them this is not what have you booked, they will offer you a better room with higher price or even sell you to another hotels and take their commission.

When you book a room with them you will be so lucky if you get a good one, but in most cases when you arrive at the reception, they will tell you the hotel if fully booked and this is the only available room they have, then, the only option left for you is to pay more. It is just cheap way of stealing people money. So, if you want to be a victim of this hotel stay there and be prepared for their cheating and exploitation.

the rate is very reasonable which is great! the best part is the customer service. from the moment i walked in they made me feel welcome, they are always happy to help and checking if you are enjoying ur stay. rooms are nice and clean (choose a room w a window). i highly recommend this new hotel thank God they didnt make me regret it! dont expect a extravagant breakfast though since ur paying rily cheap hotel rate...the restos and fast foods are just 2 mins walk...

We stayed here for total 11 days, during our Egypt trip, and enjoyed everyday of it.
Most Hospitable, courteous, staff ready to fulfill all your requirements at earliest. Clean n tidy, spacious rooms, with comfortable beds and functional bathrooms. The Ac's worked perfectly well.
Mohammed and Saeed were very helpful throughout our stay.
The breakfast was satisfying and unlimited.
We highly recommend this property to all friends with our without family, for a hassle free stay in Egypt. We look forward to our next stay at Cairo Center Hotel when in Egypt.
Thanks,
Hozefa Kagalwala n Family.
