We stayed at the Victoria for a week and then returned for another night just before leaving Egypt. We selected the Victoria, in part, because we wanted a hotel near downtown but not to close to Tahrir Square as our stay coincided with the one-year anniversary of the start of the revolution. The immediate vicinity of the hotel is not too exciting unless you are in the market for an air compressor or steel-tipped boots; and there are not any restaurants nearby, But it is a short walk to two metro stations and a 5-10 Egyptian pound cap ride to most places in the center of Cairo.
We were impressed by how hard everyone works to keep the hotel in excellent condition. The staff is exceptionally friendly. When we returned for our second stay, we were greeted like old friends.
We enjoyed the breakfast. It consists of fresh bread, cheese and jam. They will cook eggs in the style you request. Yogurt and baklava on on the menu most days. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner. The menu is not large or very exciting, but the food is tasty and the dining room has been freshly repainted.
The rooms are large, a bit spartan, but very clean. Ask for a room on the side rather than on the main street which can be noisy, especially when the mosques get started early in the morning. Be careful taking a shower; the tub is shaped in a very strange way that makes it quite easy to take a tumble.
They have a good internet connect for a reasonable price.
