This place is not a hotel. They promised a free airport transfer but it never happened and we had to take a taxi. They did not answer me when I asked them about it at reception. We had to pay for our rooms before we could see them. They had no change and we had to go back a few... More

Worst Hotel Ever!!! Stayed there recently in March 2016. There was no airport pick up arranged and the guy at reception whom I assume was the owner was very arrogant. They also don't have change so make sure you have the right amount of money to pay them if you are so insane to even consider staying there. That place... More

The location was perfect, near the subway, a good walk to Tahrir Square, a few meters from the Nile, near by shops/markets &... More

I've spent 13 days with my family at Eltonsy hotel. It has a great location close to every where. There's a metro station down the road and close to the market as well. It has a fabulous restaurant with a marvellous view on to the nile. Employers were very helpful and always smiling. I really enjoyed staying at this hotel.

My first trip to Egypt was comfortable and relaxing. Thanks to this hotel. The room I got was comfy, clean, quiet and so homey. The price is budget friendly and the staff are very nice and I even had small conversations with them every time. The people in charge at the Reception were very accommodating and helpful.

The rooftop cafe is just lovely! You cannot be in a better location for the price and quality of hotel. The hotel is facing the Nile river and you get a great view of the Great Pyramids from the rooftop cafe. It is also close to the Cairo museum and Tahir square. Great service, good food (rooftop cafe) and a... More

Stayed at the El Tonsy with a group of 20 people for one night. The rooms were clean and tidy. The view was exceptional. The staff were outstanding.

Wasn't sure if I should stay there or not after reading the reviews in here but I thought I will give it ago because of the location and the price. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, made feel very welcome especially Hany the new manger. Nice airy spacious room overlooking the Nile but need some improvement.
