This is a great budget hotel in the heart of Cairo's Downtown Area. The hotel's antique decor has been maintained in classic 1900's style, right out of those old Colonial black and white films. It's just like staying in a hotel from 100 years ago, when the great archaeological finds were being made in the Pyramids Giza area. This hotel...

What a fantastic experience for our first time in Cairo. Hotel staff picked us up at the airport, helped us arrange two days of tours with an expert guide (Rinya) and driver. We saw everything we wanted to see and a few things we didn't even know to ask for! The hotel staff was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. The hotel...

Staying at the Windsor Hotel is an experience you could not find anywhere else in Cairo. Previously owned by the royal family as a bath house and then as housing for officers during the World Wars, the hotel has completely maintained the original atmosphere. Everything from the elevator lift to the furniture is late 19th century British original. It's location...

Totally diggin' this place. The faded grandeur of a former, colonial British officers' club now hotel. It's old and beautiful. Dig the elevator and ol'-timey switchboard and the furnishings and the bar. I fell in love with this place. Go! Book the room, damn it! If it's not your thing go somewhere else - but mebbe, jus' mebbe, you'll fall...

The bar is great and cozy and usually not so full so you get to enjoy a drink and can actually chat and listen to others. Reasonably priced and we were once served a really bad bottle of wine and when we told them they managed to change it right away with no hassle at all. They are generally nice...

Horrible experience. Hotel is very old and in need of quick and major renovation. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly though. The hotel is in a noisy place too. I wouldn't recommend it.

Firstly, Samir Fayek at the front desk is the most gracious and accomodating host. He welcomes you with a warm smile and helping hand and will not hesitate to make your stay at the Windsor the best in Egypt! Ask him many questions and listen to what he says! He is very patient and knowledgable. Thank you again Samir! Secondly,...
