Sorry you don't like our place. Hashes is a part of our culture and you will find that people smoke it in most hostels.

I enjoyed my stay at Blue bird, especially because of the people who work there. The room, the location was good. This is the place for backpackers so don't expect any luxuries here , its cheap and good! , and it's perfect for female solo-travellers. Its very safe! I definitely will choose this place for my next visit to Cairo!...

Stayed there for four days. Place is clean, in city center (near to bus station, egyptian museum, nile), and they were friendly. They also arrange some tours for reasonable price. Building is in main street so its safe area.

In my many reviews and numerous stays, I have to say this is the worst stay I have ever had. Not only the hosts are arrogant but also they deceive visitors with the pictures. When I saw the pictures, I though 'wow. What a value' but turned out that the room is obsolete and dark. The shower room with the...

Great place to stay very close to the museum. The owner and brother who run the hotel are very kind and helpful. Along with that they invited us to Ramadan breakfast more than once which was very nice. Keep in mind that sometimes breakfast may not be served if you are in a hurry things can run slowly it appears....

Blue Bird Hotel is situated in downtown Cairo, surrounded by shops and restaurants and within walking distance of the Cairo Museum. The staff were happy to help and often bent-over-backwards at the chance to assist us. While Blue Bird is in need of a little TLC, it was a pleasant surprise from the other, dirtier hotel we had used a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Blue Bird Hotel Cairo got new owners in the end of 2014 and we have turned it into a cheap and cosy small boutique hotel where each room has its own vibe. The place is very good value for money and is known for its cleanliness and excellent customer service. All our focus is on helping our guests in every possible way, from places to visit, tours to go on, choice of transportation, help with laundry etc. We are on top of an antique building situated in Downtown in the heart of Cairo. Just 400 meters from the famous Talat Harb Square and only 5 minutes away from the historical Egyptian museum and major metro and train stations. Continental breakfast is included in the price. All rooms come with free wi-fi, air-con and television. Shared or private bathroom is to be chosen by the guest. You can choose between single rooms, double rooms (2 single beds or double bed) and triple rooms. Some rooms have balcony and all of them are non-smoking rooms. The daily staff speaks English and Egyptian, while the management speaks English, Egyptian, German, Danish, Swedish and Norwegian. ... more   less
