Although the hotel was almost empty I meet some great people there. both guests and staff. The hotel is clean, spacious and also very cheap. Later I travelled throughout Egypt with other...

Stayed here for a week (repeat visit) and booked a single private ensuite room, which worked out to about £16 per night. I was collected from the airport for free, which was a great bonus. Took 15 minutes (no traffic at midnight). Room was huge with a massive king sized bed, air conditioning (lots of settings, which kept my room...

This was great value. I paid only 16 British pounds per night, for a standard twin room with no bathroom, but they upgraded me to an en suite at no extra cost. Breakfast was also provided at no extra cost, and they were happy to make breakfast earlier than the arranged time if I asked. The only problem was that...

Excellent location, between the airport and downtown. Very close to the Khan al-khalili market, which has lots of nice cafes and shops. The area is very safe (Daraseh) and residential. The hotel staff are amazing and very courteous. They gave us extra towels and cleaned our rooms daily. The room was very big and the beds were comfortable too. Good...

There are several eateries, local convenience stores, a cafe and mobile phone shop within a...

The price is suitable for what it offers. The accommodation and breakfast are simple but sufficient. The service always friendly, concerned to serve us well and make us feel at home. You can book many tours directly at the hotel as well as airport transfers. On one day we took the tour to the Pyramids of Giza, Saqqara and Dahshur,...

This hotel is family-run and caters mostly to the Egyptian clientele but many tourists find it very convenient to stay here to explore the Islamic part of Cairo. It is in an area of Cairo that many travellers might find negative to their liking. But if you are an intrepid but cultured person, you will find this hotel and its...

I stayed here in July 2013, in a time where there was supposed to be political unrest. On a night where there were 'Fire Wars' happening outside, the manager padlocked the doors. The Government also put the power out one night, and being a westerner, I was a little bit cautious, but they made me feel safe and very welcome....
