The hotel is fine for staying in the middle of Cairo. We had a large family room with a lot of space. It was clean. Location is close to Tahrir Square, although the main road has been walled off for security reasons (riots in the square last year). It is on the top floor of a commercial building which is impossible to find. The hotel owner sends a taxi (for an expensive price) to come pick you up from the airport, otherwise, there is no way you can find the hotel.
Breakfast is very basic.
We stayed at the Grand Pyramids in Giza before coming here, so were spoiled by the buffet breakfast, huge pool, modern rooms.
In comparison, Osiris is lacking. No pool, no outdoor space, no phone or Internet. However, this is in downtown Cairo so location is so much better.
Owner was nice enough. Sold us a day trip to Saquarra with a very good guide. Tried to sell us a desert trip in middle of July - even the guide told us it was way too hot. I was hot enough in Cairo so no way was I going out to the desert.
