“Surprisingly Grand”
Reviewed January 20, 2011

My first impression of this hotel was not that good however it was actually quite good. It is quite old but still nice and very clean. The rooms were nice and spacious however it was difficult to sleep because there is a lot of beeping on the main road which it was sitiated. The restaurant had good food. The hotel is located in downtown Cairo and we were able to walk to the museum.

First of all, the elevator really scared me. It was verry old. I felt more safe taking the stairs instead. The room was big but the furniture was old and the matress was not verry comfortable. They were offering egyptian food at the buffet (almost only egyptian food) I liked it but for the people that are not verry adventurous in food, they wont have a lot of choices. Overall, the place was kind of clean. I do not know about the value of the hotel because I didnt pay for it. But I like to change so I would not go back there again. The staff was pretty quiet and they were there for us when we needed it.

This hotel is in a good central location. Our room was on the third floor with a balcony overlooking the busy and noisy streets below. It was roomy, comfortable and clean with a good-sized bathroom with both a tub and shower. With the balcony doors closed, the traffic noise can still be heard but it really didn't bother us. Cairo cannot be described as a quiet city in any shape or form so we just accepted it. We negotiated a very reasonable dinner, bed and breakfast rate and ate every evening in the hotel restaurant. The food for both dinner and breakfast was varied and good and with very friendly waiting staff. There is no alcohol allowed in the restaurant.
We stayed in the Grand Hotel for three nights having left another disappointing hotel. We would definitely recommend it and stay here again if we are ever back in Cairo.

I have stayed here with groups for 5 years. The staff are friendly & speak reasonable English on reception. There can be some misunderstandings but on the whole my groups enjoy their time at the Grand. It is ideally placed for shopping trips!

The Grand Hotel was centrally located in downtown Cairo, so we weren't in a very touristy location which was sort of nice, but it meant we stood out more as a group of girls travelling together.

The lifts were certainly an experience, but then so were the taxi rides. The Hotel wasn't modern, but the rooms were clean and the breakfast was good. The street was very busy and noisy most of the time and we were woken every morning by the call to prayer, once you got used to this it wasn't really a problem though.

A very interesting experience and good value hotel.

I stayed in Cairo for 5 days last summer at the Grand hotel 26th July street, it was a cheap hotel so I wasn't expecting much but OMG when I saw the room it was huge! it had air-con,TV, VERY clean, bathroom was excellent, I couldn't fault it. It also has friendly reception staff an excellent location in Downtown Cairo near a metro and a short walk to the famous Egyptian Antiquities Museum. The hotel slso has a valley of the kings restaurant which we had a meal in the first day we arrived, we didn't find the meal all that satisfactory and there was blasting music in the restaurant spoiling the ambience, the restaurant is also where they have the breakfast which is excellent and plentiful, cooked breakfast, pastries, fruit etc. This would be my first choice on a future return visit to Cairo.
