I stayed at this hotel 3 days ago for 2 nights & loved the place. It's in the heart of the city center...walking distance from Tahrir square & Egyptian museum. It's been newly renovated and was very clean. It is on the 3rd floor of a building but most smaller hotels are the same on that street. They have rooms... More

I thought it will be OK since it is only one night between the plane and the train next day.I was wrong! The room was a tiny little cell with the tiny window just under the 10 feet ceiling, hardly any room around the bed, would be decent bathroom if not mold on the tile grout. My friend's room next...

Half the hotel is in renovation and looks like a complete garbage dump. The other half was decently clean but not to my standards. Very dark and uninviting entrance. Staff was very rude and not helpful. Location was great. Would not stay again.

We were in this hotel for one night before going in a full day trip to the pyramides. It is very central and the stuff is very friendly. The room was clean and it has AC. But according to the price, the room is relatively small and there is no view. The place makes a bit the impression that it... More

Don't let the dark entrance fool you. The golden hotel is a recently renovated hidden gem in the middle of the shopping district and close to tahrir square/Egyptian museum. We stumbled upon it after desperately searching for an alternative hotel after getting fed up at the happy city hotel. We couldn't have been more pleased with our decision. No Mosquitos.... More

No wifi in the room, no bathroom privacy. Staff will deceive you regarding taxi prices, distances,etc. One of them got loud and rude when asked to help with wifi ( the one with mustache).

We stayed for 4 nights and our room was always spectacularly cleaned everyday. The reception staff were really sweet and accomodating to our needs. Rooms and breakfast are both modest yet nice. Location is fantastic with Cairo Museum just a walk away. Even though the hotel is surrounded by the hussle and bussle of Cairo's noisy traffic, its a great... More
