“Friendship forever”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2010

We had a good stay at the Cairo Palace. Friendly staff, clean rooms, simple breakfast and very good atmosphere.
Great value for money. It's like the fairy from Alladin, behind the old gate there is a hidden treasure.
Staffmember Mohey is a really friendly guy who does everything to make your stay in Cairo a good experience. Always laughing and in for a joke he is the most valuable staffmember of the hotel. Keep up the good work.
Also special thanks to Saad, cook, mechanic etc.. a wonderfull guy to meet.
Only point of criticism is the cleaning of the garbage bin, make it a daily routine and you'll get 10 out of 10 rating.

We stayed 5 nights at the Cairo Palace Hotel, on our first visit to Cairo. We haven't stayed elsewhere (except one night in the desert!), so we cannot compare it to other hotels. We booked through booking.com, but when we arrived, the 2 rooms we requested were not available (they tried to let us know by email), so they offered us a family room instead. At first we were put off, but ended up staying in that room, and it was comfortable enough, with 3 double beds, en suite bathroom and a balcony for about $50/night for 4 people.
The best thing about the hotel is the staff - they are very friendly and willing to help book trips and activities. The driver they provided was outstanding - "H" (as he likes to be called) easily and safely navigated the insane traffic of Cairo. We probably paid more than we would have for taxis, but at roughly $40/day, he took us wherever we needed, waited for us, and got us back to the hotel with no hassles. He was a driver, not a guide, but he also suggested things to see and do, and offered some insight into life in Cairo.
The hotel helped us arrange trips to Giza, Saqqara, the Egyptian Museum, a Nile River dinner cruise, and more. Again, not sure if we got the best deal, but it was very easy for our first stay in Cairo.
When you arrive at Cairo Palace, the street entry, halls, stairway and elevator all seem a bit sketchy, but the hotel itself is clean enough. Breakfast is simple - either bread, fruit juice and boiled egg, and coffee or tea. They did laundry for us for a very small fee, but it did not come back folded or ironed.
I would recommend this hotel if you are on a budget and don't need everything to be spotless or perfect. I'd equate it more with a hostel than a hotel, but again, the staff was friendly and helpful, which we very much appreciated.
