The Cairo Khan is in a great location in the city, which makes it a good value for the price. The rooms are nothing special--spacious but that's about it. Since you are in the heart of the city, honking car horns will keep you up at night, but that's part of the Cairo 'charm.' Other than the car horns, there's no reason why you can't have a clean, comfortable stay at the Cairo Khan. If you are a traveler who can get by without frills, then I recommend this as an acceptable place to stay. The breakfast was a nice plus--again, nothing fancy, but good nevertheless. This felt like a very safe, walkable part of the city, even at night.

We had serious reservations about this place after reading the mixed reviews but our friends were keen on the location so we thought we'd give it a go.

We were there on 2 occasions during March 20 10 and between our rooms and our friends we saw 3 different rooms on the same floor (rooms 410,411, 412). I've given the place a 2 rating overall, but the 3 rooms were quite different in size and fitness for habitation (but all the same price) and would have rated a 3, a 2 and a 1 if rated separately. As others have noted, traffic noise is a problem - this was the case for all 3 rooms here.

Each room had a small foyer - larger in the 2 larger rooms.
Room 410 was the smallest and in the worst shape, about 25 sq m for the main room and had the smallest (about 9 sq m) bathroom - the plumbing behind the handbasin constantly leaked (quite badly) and water flowed uninterrupted across the bathroom floor to a drain. We requested it to be fixed and were assured it had been, but of course it wasn't. About half the power points were U/S. Fridge was in the room and shared a common power point with the TV - no double adaptor, so make your choice. Room was configured as twin beds

Room 411, a corner room, was huge, probably 40+ sq m plus a big (long) 12 sq m bathroom. Everything seemed to work. There was extra furniture in this room - a 2 seater lounge. Room was configured as twin beds.

Room 412 was still a good size - about 35 sq m for the main room and 10 sq m bathroom and all the plumbing worked but half the powerpoints were U/S. Room was configured as a double.

For all, the shower was in the long wall of the bath, a common feature in Egypt. There was a (chained) plug for the bathtubs, but none for the handbasins.

The general state of cleaning for the rooms was quite poor. Toilets are given a quick scrub and they have a vacuum cleaner and mop but t he only cleaning product I saw on the trolley was glass cleaning spray. Tile floors are given a quick mop with a wet cloth but it must have been years since floor tiles were cleaned properly (either scrubbed or using some cleaning product) - the built up grime made it hard to see there was pink in the original floor tile colour in light coloured Room 412. Sticky stains on the carpet (jam?) looked like they'd been there for a long time. Similarly, a rub over the glass table surfaces with a hand towel came away very grubby indeed.

Breakfast in the restaurant was poor - the Malaysian tour groups were in early and nothing was topped up or replaced. If you hunted around you could find the replacement juice (hidden away from the buffet end, just outside the kitchen) - otherwise go without. Tables were only slowly reset after use - everyone seemed to get the hang of scrounging tables for unused cutlery. Teaspoons were magically produced form waiters pockets only on request. Tablecovers were dusted off but certainly weren't changed regularly - we got the same table 1 & 1/2 days apart and the egg stains were still there. Dinner menu was limited - food quality was "OK" for dinner but waiter service was generally poor. 1st floor cafe - used by a few locals but they play the TV very loud (Egyptian soap opera) in the day and were not prepared to turn it down even though it was only staff watching - we left.
On the positives (only a few):
good location,
Free and fast WiFi in the lobby
Friendly English speaking reception staff

In s'pore i was told that this is a 3star hotel. i wasnt expecting much facilities. upon reaching there, i was stunned. its like im in the 70s! the lobby is dim. the rooms are simple with old furnitures.

gd for a few days stay. its still unbearable for me coz the traffic noise ( esp the horns of the vehicles) are irritating. u will not get peace till late night.

breakfast are the same for every day. 1st come 1st serve. u come late for breakfast, u might end up with only a bread or two. orange juice is definitely finished by then. i think this pl caters to the businessmen coz i see lots of them. less of tourists.

This hotel only has "suite" rooms, so this would be a good place for more than 2 people travelling together as you will get 2 bedrooms within the same "apartment". This is a very basic budget class hotel and it does not pretend to be otherwise. Rooms are definitely spacious but they do not provide any toiletries, only towels, toilet paper and hand soap.

It can get very noisy with the Egyptian traffic as it is located right next to the main thoroughfare. Location wise, it is right at the main "shopping" street, so access to food is pretty easy. It is also within walking distance to the Cairo Museum and River Nile, you just have to make sure to look out for the Egyptian traffic which doesn't stop...for anyone except maybe the police!

The entrace and lobby of the hotel was also very dusty and dingy (there were some construction work going on), but if you can get past that, it is a pretty decent place for the price and it helps that the staff are friendly and helpful. They volunteered to pack our breakfast for us when we had to leave at 3am to catch a morning flight...pretty nice gesture I would say.

Centrally located, smoke-filled, noisy, and no hair dryers available. I bought one the night I arrived and it cost US$50, so bring your own with a converter. Breakfast was poor.
