We arrived at 3 am - and goit great rooms! Newly renovated, very clean. Very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent - but the main "attraction" is really Sophie's information, comments, recommendations... And her helpfulness - even before you get there (and pay). Plus: the hotel is ideally located in the heart of modern Cairo, right where it all happens. You couldn't be "closer"!!!

Hotel is in a great location a minute from the Museum. The rooms have proper beds with proper duvets and pillows. Everything is extremely clean. There are filling breakfasts and the owner & staff are very helpful.

My wife and I stayed for 1 night at the Golden Hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, it's a great location for walking to the Egyptian museum. As previous comments mentioned it's close to the demonstrations on Tahrir square but we felt safe and had no problems with anyone. We organised a driver through the hotel to take us to the pyramids and then back to the airport. All was done efficiently and at a decent price.
Recommended.

Room Tip: We got a room at the back, it's less fancy but quieter.

My friend and I stayed at the Golden Hotel, Cairo for two nights in early February 2013. The hotel is situated a two minute walk from Tahrir Square (where demonstrators and protesters could be seen) but we felt completely safe and in no way, in any danger. We even walked through the square a few times, on route to the Corniche. The protesters have no quarrel with tourists. Don't be put off by the exterior of the hotel. Once you get out of the lift, a whole new world opens up at the Golden Hotel on the third floor. Sophie the owner/manager was very welcoming. Sophie is Swiss and speaks very good english. She is very hands-on. Her rooms were basic with TV but were spotlessly clean and comfortable. Her breakfasts were scrumptious. We visited the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum while we were in Cairo and would loved to have stayed longer with Sophie. Thank you Sophie for making our stay so memorable.

Hadn't planned to stay here but our original booking with another hotel went pear-shaped and we ended up here - thank goodness! The ground floor entrance is a bit off-putting when you first arrive but you quickly become accustomed to the streets of Cairo. However, upstairs in the Golden Hotel, everything is absolutely spotless (the owner-manager Sophie quipped that she's hated by her cleaners! Sophie is Swiss but speaks several languages which was great for us as we don't! We felt completely safe here, despite the widely-reported agitation in Tahrir Square (in fact, we ended up in the Square by accident - we'd gone into a bakery - and turned the wrong way when we came out). We crossed the square several times after that and at no time felt unsafe - the Egyptians have no quarrel with tourists. We were only here for a couple of days to do the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum but would have happily stayed longer. Thank you Sophie.
