Very loud neighborhood, had to wear ear plugs and play white noise on my phone in order to sleep. Mosquitos inside. But friendly and helpful staff, good price, high ceilings, adequate space in room and decent bed.
This central Cairo hotel is very comfortable with old world charm. The lovely staff are all professional and friendly, very happy to take the time to help with any requset. The exterior of the building belies the clean calm comfort within. I met and mixed with fellow guests in the dining room at breakfast and in the lounge room at night. A twenty minute walk to the museum.
Pension Roma is our favourite hotel in Cairo and the place we always go back to when in the city. I almost feel bad not wanting to try any other hotel in Cairo. From the first day we fell in love with the hotel, it's perfectly preserved in time, from the moment you step into the old building, the elevator, a gem of the old days. I think there is a recently remodelled area which is also great but I just fell in love with the original, more 'vintage' area. We always choose the same room which is very big, clean, and comfy with a sink and closet. The bathroom is always kept squeaky clean. The common areas-- dining room and living room-- are just mesmerizing; you feel in early XX century Cairo. The breakfast is always a joy, such a nice atmosphere to plan your day or write some notes. The price is very good, honestly one of the best price-quality in the world. The staff is truly 5 stars. Always helpful and very nice. They even do their best and give us the room we like! We also met the owner and she is such a nice lady. The location is just great as it is sooo central you can walk to Tahrir and the museum, Islamic Cairo, Jezirah... pretty much anywhere in central Cairo is no more than 15 minutes walking distance. There is a metro station about 4 minutes walking where you can go to Giza for a couple EP and then take a local bus straight to the pyramids. Lots of yummy options to eat around, you are in the heart of downtown Cairo.…
This hotel is very nice, the guy in the reception is very friendly. I love the cleanliness, I couldnt find a room with a bathroom, I was worried from the shared toilet but they surprised me as it is very clean. Youssef also is a friendly, helpful and let u feel like home
We stayed once again at Pension Roma, with a group of friends and family members. It was great as ever. I don't know how many times I have stayed there during the past 20 years - quite often. Nothing ever changes. The staff is lovely, all is clean, all works efficient.Maybe they could change some matresses or pillows every up and then but that is all. We stayed for a week and really liked it. Also my friends who traveled to Cairo for the first time with us. We will be back later during the year.. Looking already forward to.
