My Hotel is a very good hostel in a central location right next to the Egyptian Museum. I stayed in a 3 bed dormitory for a very reasonable price. The hostel was a lot better than what I expected for such little money. The room was clean, the sheets were clean and the shared bathrooms were cleaned regularly. But the...

Pros: Clean and comfortable, unbeatable location, and very helpful staff. For $10 they picked us up from the airport (a little more expensive than taking a taxi...

I had a most enjoyable stay at this hostel. It's clean and beautiful decor is a big and pleasant contrast to the street entrance. The location is great -close to museum and Ramal station. The staff are also helpfully concerning tours and package deals but not pushy to have you take them.

Just a walk away from the square where you can find shops, fresh juice and many affordable places to eat . The hotel is very clean (just get upstairs to the fourth floor then...

My Hotel was an amazing hostel. The rooms are clean and maintained daily. There are personal showers with hot water. The workers are overly friendly and extremely helpful.

the hotel is just right next to Egypt museum, and the host is very kind and welcoming. He explained and introduced us where to go and what to see in museum. Also he arranged private taxi driver for us in decent price and made us feel safe. I will definitely come again and stay here!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
My Hotel is located in a historical building in Downtown Cairo directly across from the Egyptian Museum and only minutes from the Nile. Most of our bright cheerful rooms have a balcony to enjoy the fresh breezes. The hotel faces away from the street so that you can enjoy the luxury of peace and quiet in the middle of Downtown Cairo. The rooms have wood floors, high ceilings, and wardrobes to make you feel at home. ... more   less
