I normally stay at hotels that cost around $100/night - but after reading reviews of Cairo hotels, most of which were rather unenthusiastic, my choices were a 5 star far from the center, a really expensive hotel in town- or this. So I took a chance and booked this one.
I stayed for 8 days - 4 days at the start of my trip, in a room with two beds ($25), and 4 nights in a room with one bed ($20). Both were air conditioned and had windows - they tried to give me a windowless room at first.
The guys who run it are sweet, the free breakfast is nothing special but you can have a hard boiled egg, toast and tea, which is all you need, it is clean enough and it is well located. Free WiFi. Like all hotels in Egypt (and beyond), anything booked through the hotel will be more expensive than you can get it for on your own.
If all you want is a clean, centrally located place to stay, this is fine. But do remember that it needs to be measured against hotels in its price range.
Some cons: mosquitoes (few places in Egypt have screens), sometimes the housekeeping is a bit lacking but the guys respond to prodding,
