We had a lot of fun staying at this hostel. The airport pick up was clutch. It was great not having to find a cab driver late at night and try to give him directions to the hotel. It's right smack in the middle of downtown so the location can't get much better. My brother and I had a lot...

The hotel (we stayed at their QABANA wing) is situated in the heart of downtown area, walking distance from the...

Upon arrival to the hotel, it's very scary- the enterance isn't "welcoming" by any means! We were disappointed when we arrived and realized that the elevator was not working. After halling our bags upstairs we were able to get checked into our rooms. We had two seperate rooms. One room had a clothes hanging outside of the window, it looked...

This Christmas I stayed in this hotel for a couple of nights during my trip to Cairo. I had to pay £12/night which is preety cheap and I did not expect much. If I would asked to rate this hotel, I would rate it as a hostel. No way it is a hotel. I have got a proper sized room...

If you're looking for a hotel in Cairo then don't stay here as it is a basic hostel and nothing more. They didn't even provide sheets or towels for us. The room was also very noisy due to Cairo's chaotic traffic with never ending tooting. On the plus side the owner Mr Haitham is very helpful and can organise some...

“If possible, choose a room which is the farthest away from the common room and reception desk. This will help you get a better sleep, as these rooms are quieter, and you will more removed from the cigarette smoke which permeates the air.”
