It was rated 3 stars when we were choosing hotels, but it's definitely worth more than it looks.
Location: Next to a HSBC ATM and a supermarket - which is essential to get cheap water and snacks in Cairo; 5mins walk from an excellent Egyptian restaurant " Abu Alma ElSoury" and some western fastfood shops.
Staff: friendly and helpful. The advice about places to go, taxi fares etc are very genuine. They are always ready to meet your need - our flight to Aswan was very late at night, far passed the checkout time and we had nowhere to go. The receptionist kindly allowed us to stay in a free room FREE OF CHARGE so that we could rest :)
The Hotel: rooms were not as luxury and new as other 5stars, but they are clean and tidy. We felt safe and comfortable staying in this hotel. Free internet access was an ace.
Food: breakfast on Sunday wasn't great, but freshly cooked eggs on other days was appreciable.
Tours: there are pyramids tour and old Cairo tour available at reasonable prices. Tour guides were friendly, spoke fluent English, and to high standard. They were happy to tailor the tours to our needs.
