Windsor Hotel Cairo
Ranked #23 of 141 Hotels in Cairo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2011

I was in Cairo for about a week in July after backpacking for 40 days around Europe and I must say that week was the best one. The first reason is that it was my dream to go to Egypt and the second its because I stayed in Windsor Hotel.
Windsor its a great hotel, very stylish, the rooms are comfortable, the bar its beautiful and I enjoyed the food and drinks a lot.
The staff was really friendly and helpful and the tours to Giza Pyramids and Saqqarah, Coptic and Islamic Cairo and Alexandria were great!!! Mina was my tour guide and I can tell you that he can arrange a really good tour for you, he told me all the information about the places and answered all my questions, I had a lot of fun !
My special thanks to Samir and Mina for making my days in Cairo so great!
I'll definitely come back to Cairo and Windsor!

Friendly place full of character. Very different! It is a budget accommodation and it serves this purpose very well. Think twice if you want undisturbed sleep though! :) Breakfast was very average. But staying there saved us lots of money in the peak season!

Mina Samir as a guide for day-trips to the pyramids and Alexandria was excellent.
Despite the somewhat volatile political situation in the country at the time, when on Mina's tours I feared nothing.
He was polite, informative, has a grand sense of humour and was quick to respond to any concerns I may have had.
He helped to make my all-too-quick visit to Egypt the most interesting part of a month-long holiday and I dod not hesitate to recommend him to other tourists.

Hotel Windsor is s step back into an era of overstuffed chairs, lazy ceiling fans, friendly staff and colorful history. The rooms vary ion size, shape, features. We stayed twice, in march and again in April, 2011. Yes, the included breakfast is a bit spartan, but the charming ladies in the dining room make being there fun. Windsor will arrange a cab to or from the airport for the going rate (80 Egyptian pounds in 2011). But the best ride is in their 'Agatha Christie and Hercule Poirot' lovely metal 'lift', the last manually operated passenger elevator in Cairo, if not Egypt. If you want color, character and charm, try the Windsor.

Room Tip: Cairo is noisy. No hotel is quiet. There may be rooms off the street but we aren't sure.

A hotel with character, history and full of friendly staff, an all-day bar (so rare) at a good price in central Cairo that's three minutes away from a metro station and a bunch of bank ATMs - if you're not looking to stay 4*/5*, what more do you want?

This is where Michael Palin stayed whilst filming in Cairo for his original Around the World in 80 days TV series. There's a signed photo of the man in the lobby (but personally I think they should make more of a marketing deal of the fact).

Staff were very helpful, offering advice on where to go and what to do in Cairo. Ask for Samir for tours to the local sites and procurement of train tickets.
