this hotel can satisfy for people who want to save money and stay clean room and bathroom.
people who are working here are very friendly and helpful to manage travel plans.
it is easy to visit the Egyptian museum from here and bus stop to Giza Pyramid is also close.

As long as you're not expecting the amenities of a five-star establishment, Invitation Hotel is really a charming place. The facade and interior of the building can look quite daunting, but once you get up to the fourth floor and are greeted by the low-key, friendly staff, you'll feel quite at ease. The rooms were spacious, bathrooms provided hot water (not always an easy amenity), and the location was ideal for most attractions within downtown Cairo (two blocks from Metro, Eqyptian museum, bus terminal, as well as shopping and eating). As well, meals off the menu are provided from a nearby restaurant (try the chicken and vegetable stew) that excelled in evening cravings. Finally, the staff was so approachable, knowledgeable, and warm. We were treated like old friends, only adding to our comfort and a sense of familiarity with an otherwise exotic locale.

Invitation Hotel is the best hotel for people that don`t want to spend a lot of money but want to stay in a clean, nice place in the center of Cairo. Staff is great: the beautiful Mohamed Tigher, the sweet Gamel, both extremely kind. All the guys are under the brilliant supervising of the manager Mahoamed, the best person I`ve met in Cairo: he is very kind, smiling, sincere, clever. He will solve any of your troubles, explaining everything to you, he will help you just like a true friend. You will feel in a family.

me and my husband are crazy travelers who are interested to cross each country all around the world and we already have got a great experience with hotels and hostels in many countries of Europe, Asia, Africa and South America.
planing our gambit to Cairo we were searching for cheap but clean and quite place located in the center of the city where we could stay after long "discovers" day. we thought that it will be difficult to find something like that, cause we heard a lot horror stories about hosting in Egypt.
we were surprised, but Invitation Hotel matched with all our requirements!
it is nice, very clean and quite place near the Egyptian Museum, very comfortable.
Staff was perfect, they helped us with selection of tours, offered and provided all the services we needed.
people who stayed in the same time with us in the hotel were very funny and lovely as well, so , we met new friends and spent very good time together!
when we will decide to go to Cairo again, we will stay at Invitation Hotel for sure!

I stayed in Cairo for a week at this hotel and I was amazed by such a good value the Invitation Hotel has. For being $26 a day and being centrally located in Cairo, you certainly can't complain. The rooms were very fairly comfy. And they also were equipped with a t.v, a shower/bathroom, and a good view of the Cairo Tower/Zamalek area. The only downside i can think of is all that traffic noise because of merging highway outside the hotel.

If anyone is looking for a decent place in the heart of Cairo on a budget, then this is absolutely the place to stay!
