Staff were very friendly but the hotel wasn't upto standard in regard to rooms or beds and no wifi provided in rooms however in general location of the hotel is in wonderful area and if you need to stay for one day just to sleep the rest of the day are out then I recommend it.

The Moods cafe on floor 10 has great shisha and soft drinks and lovely views. It should be noted by westerners that it does not sell alcoholic drinks. I didn't stay in the hotel but was made very welcome in the cafe.

We stayed at the Holidays Express when we were in Cairo for about a week. The hotel was always clean and the staff was very nice. The breakfast was extensive. If we were in the area again I would be willing to stay there.

Holidays Express was just the kind of place we were looking for. Neat & clean premises with very humble and loving staff. Each... More
