This hotel is very well situated, within easy walking distance of the museum, Cairo tower and right on the river. Plenty of restaurants and coffee shops nearby (to the North of the island). The hotel didn't seem very busy but then Cairo seems to have very few tourists at the moment.

Good location, moderate prices. The bathroom shower was showing the effects of intense usage; the sofa could be cleaned from time to time. Metro station 200 m away makes discovering the city easier when traveling on a Budget. Breakfast very alright, including double expresso.
