“An absolute treasure in the heart of Cairo!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We were looking for cheap and cheerful and instead we found a gem of an almost five star hotel in central Cairo, but at two star prices!

The entrance to the hotel is via a shabby old lift in an old building in Taalat Harb Square. The hotel is actually on the 6th floor and the lift opens directly in reception.

All rooms have high ceilings and are air conditioned with private bathrooms; televisions will be in every room but not all rooms are finished yet. It was a joy to see the natural wood floors and bathroom fittings which are all new and actually work!

Mohamed and his team go the extra mile to ensure that your stay will be enjoyable. Breakfast was included with fresh eggs or omelets, bread rolls, cheese & preserves. An Italian restaurant is planned but for the moment the staff will order take away food from any of the nearby restaurants. Fresh flowers in each room was a really nice touch.

We were not on holiday so we chose the hotel for its central location close to Tahrir Square and the Cairo museum. There are some great shops nearby.

When everything is completed this will be a real gem of a boutique hotel in Downtown Cairo!

Room Tip: If you want a quieter room you will need to ask; because of the central location there is always str...

Perfect city view, from 6th floor overlooking Talaat Harb square, only minute walking from the Egyptian Museum, beautiful spacious room with high ceiling.
Private bathroom, comfortable king size bed. The moment I went inside my room, i felt like its a five star! Great staff, that helps with any tours you might want while staying in Cairo.
In Cairo there has always been either expensive luxury hotels or ugly cheap budget hotels, Finally Cairo has a hotel right in the middle, Cheap prices liken the budget hotels but with a nice luxury feeling!
