Perfect stay, even though building is old the room was clean and tidy with very friendly staff. Location is good in Tahrir where most of the attraction is very close. They serve a good Egyptian breakfast.

We stayed as a family of 4 at this hotel in a room over the extreme noise of car honking all night long. The room and furnishings were dated, the bathroom floor leaked water daily, the hot water ran out after 2 showers. The tap had 2 positions, over the sink and barely over the sink and shampoo was not enough for 4, given in small packets. The safe didn’t work so taping the batteries in became the answer by the staff, who although kind, really haven’t fixed any of the problems mentioned in reviews on this or other booking sites. Nonetheless, the taped batteries fell out and we had to call staff again. The air conditioner was filthy and the window above the lower window didn’t close so all the noise came in. Breakfast was a measly smorgasbord of bread, boiled eggs and tea or coffee, the same daily. Pickup from the airport is free if staying more than 2 nights. The no seatbelt dirty car will not necessarily fit all your luggage, we struggled with 4 suitcases. Return journey is US$15 again in a non seatbelt, not hotel run car. We were very disappointed with this hotel and would not recommend it.

I had one night stay in this hotel in September 2019. The room was a little bit too small for two persons. Air conditioning was good and the single bed was a little bit too narrow judging from North American or European standard. Food was acceptable but the city noise was a bit disturbing at night.

This is a very nice budget hotel. It is a little noisy because it is in front of ther Egyptian museum but this was not a problem for us because we were exhausted from walking all day. The proximity to the museum and all of the streets in the area have shopping kept us moving all day. The staff were vey nice and breakfast was very good. For the price it was worth it. Thanks
