Been there, great location, unfortunatly the place is a mess, although the view to the nile and central Cairo is amazing (my balcony was just perfect) the level of cleaningness is less then poor, even for a budget hotel. It isnt terrible in my review just for the great Balcony.

I often stay at Garden City House when visiting Cairo. It's not an expensive place and takes up the 3rd and 4th floors of an older building. Either an easy walk-up or an elevator from the 40's. The staff that works there are very nice, very helpful and all speak English fluently. The rooms are large, but the beds are...

The best thing about staying at the Garden City House is that you are just a few feet from some of the most expensive hotels in Egypt and you are paying a fraction of the price. The Garden City area is an ideal location for exploring Cairo. It's an easy walk to the city center and practically steps from the...

this hotel was my refuge in cairo - the staff was extremely helpful and always polite. Its in the heart of cairo, a bustling, chaotic, dirty, beautiful, and enchanting place that I would love to return to. Being right of a main 'square' yes there is a bustle of cars at most hours, but since you're in the middle of...

The Garden City House Hotel basically has everything you could ask for out of a budget hotel, but with better service! The location is perfect if you want to be in the dynamic, chaotic and culture-rich centre of Cairo, right by Tahrir Square, and a short taxi ride away from the extraordinary UNESCO World Heritage Site of Islamic Cairo and...

I got bed bugs from here. Besides that, the location is good, but because of the location, there was nonstop loud traffic, even at 3:30 in the morning. I don't know if it was the traffic or the bed bugs that prevented me from sleeping. That said, the people who worked there were very friendly and helpful. Oh, and breakfast...

This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at, and I have travelled a lot. Wallpaper peeling , smelly, depressing, non-working elevator, dirty rugs, unsuitable bathroom and so on...!

My sister and I stayed here in December 2007. The review by "zlo" (2 reviews before this one) is spot on – no need to repeat much of what she says. Basic but clean, nothing really lacking, though perhaps we take longer showers than "zlo", because we found the water did start running cold near the end of the shower....

The Garden City House oozed with atmosphere, the original 1920/30's decor and fittings still being in place - including the most amazing lift! For this we could forgive it's grubbiness.

“The front rooms can be a bit noisy as they look onto a very busy street. The ones that have the balcony that face the Stunning White Gov. building are the best for sleep and privacy.”
