We stayed in the Windsor whilst moving from Sharm el Sheikh. As most of the reviews note, the staff at this hotel are fantastic. They are helpful and friendly, and of all the hotels listed as 'pet friendly' in Cairo; this is the only one that actually is. As we were moving house we had numerous bags and also a...

I stayed here during my trip to Egypt in January of this year. I selected it based on reviews and pricing and I was not disappointed. I was drawn by its history as well. As a traveler I have stayed at hostels, B&Bs, 5 star hotels and everything in between. If you are looking for something other than the same...

Walking into the bar/restaurant it feels like you have passed through time. The furniture is stunning and ambience amazing - the food was great as well. Yes the rooms were average and the outside of the hotel is somewhat past its glory days but when we return to Cairo, we will most definitely be staying at the Windsor. From the...

I had to visit Cairo on business this past March and looked for a hotel with 'atmosphere' rather than just booking into a sterile, personalityless big chain hotel. Windsor was a real find. The history it represents, the unchanged lounge and reception area dating back to the 20s and the incredible warmth, caring, and genuine friendship of the staff made...

Everyone writes how the Windsor hotel is a bit creaky but incredibly charming. I'll agree about the lounge, elevator, and maybe even the furniture. The staff and guards were all very friendly and tried to be as helpful as they could. The lounge is a beautiful spot to hang out and have a drink (not tea, it's ridiculously over-priced) and...

The Windsor is a quirky, charming hotel with a lively history and an extremely friendly and gracious staff. It was built at the turn of the 20th century and was formerly the British Officers' Club before the revolution of 1952. Michael Palin of Monty Python fame stayed there while filming "Around the World in 80 Days" for the BBC. If...

Really cool hotel. Huge room, but the bed was a bit uncomfy. The character of the hotel made up for it. Location seemed a bit iffy at first, but don't be too concerned; I never felt unsafe. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Anyone that goes to Cairo should experience the great charm and warmth of this hotel and its people. I enjoyed every aspect of my stay and felt like I was staying with family! They were caring, attentive and generous. The hotel itself is a gem in the centre of Cairo... full of character and spirit, I would recommend it to...
