“Downtown Cario”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

I stayed here as the start of my tour with Gecko Adventures, this hotel in itself was an adventure. The room range in different sizing, all are clean but have the 70's feel to them. Room service is good as is the restaurant there. I was there for my birthday and my tour leader arranged a birthday cake for us to have at dinner. If you want to mix it with the locals, then this is a great place to stay to see the real Cairo.

stayed here as part of my tour....only thing that really bothered me was the shower I got burnt because it wold not turn off.....I had to get the house keeping in and even they couldnt stop it they had to turn the water off at the wall and the bathroom was flooded. Is a good location....eating places around, grocery store. Staff are nice. My bed was very comfortable.........breakfast was fantastic also!!

Had this hotel at the end of my Intrepid trip and was quite surprised with the service.

Rooms were of a good size and the washroom clean. Typical Egyptian breakfast is served which was fine with free wifi in the lobby. Doorman and front staff spoke good English and were able to arrange private taxi's for me.

There are restaurants shops nearby. There are about 4 banks and a money exchange place within a 5min walk.

McDonalds, Costa Coffee, and Coffeehouse are within a 15min walk.

I felt safe in this area and never felt hassled as hotel is located on Giza side.

I recently stayed at the Caroline Crillon Hotel. It was located close enough to downtown and shopping areas. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful! As a first time, solo, American female travler, I would highly recommend this hotel. The breakfast was great and so was the restaurant. There was always someone available who spoke English. I would be remissed if I did not mention the bellman whose real name was hard for me to pronounce but allowed me to call him George. He was quick to help with taxis, shopping advice, along with explaining cultural norms. They made me feel comfortable and safe. Internet is only available in the lobby area. Rooms come with air con, hot water, clean sheets, fridge and TV.

Great place to stay! The staff was friendly and always willing to help. English was spoken by all. The rooms were comfortable with a nice television. a safe, and a refrigerator. The location of the hotel is a small distance from downtown (15 minutes taxi) but in a much quieter and upscale neighborhood. It's a nice break from the hectic bazaar on the east side. Highly recommended!

This hotel had a clean comfortable bed & a nice hot shower which after 3 days of camping was much appreciated ! The staff was friendly and accomodating. Breakfast also was good. I would stay here again.

This hotel is good for a three star. It had hot water, large room, clean sheets and the staff were responsive. Who could could complain about that! Breakfast was typically Egyptian and plenty of it.
