The main reason to stay is the location, close to the old Islamic Cairo, the museum , Citadelle and to the train station for the Copt museum and churches. The people are friendly, the view from the 7th floor is fine but the room would need renovation. Still a good choice for this price

I stayed there 2 times and find that the got a double price politic, the tourist one is a lot more than the local one. That might be OK but the prestations are poor for the price paid. On my formula the evening meal was included, usually just correct meal, but when i take the hotel transport to get a...

I have stayed at this hotel several times when traveling to Egypt. I found it charming and very cheap. They worked to handle the needs of my family, and on one occasion the needs of a large group of college students. The remodeled rooms are very nice and clean, even by American standards. But the older rooms have a lovely...

I love the old charm, the wooden floor boards, huge staircase, old fashioned {and in working order whenever I'm there} elevator. The rooms are basic, good working tv, fridge and A/C...

Great reception...lovely staff. The hotel structure is so amazing..with a bit of work, it would be amazing. However, rooms are really old-fashioned and dusty. Bathrooms a little grungy. Fine and with nice features like breakfast and dinner included. Fridge and A/C. It seemed like a Ghost hotel...not destined to last...without a huge influx of $$$$ Let's just say, when we...

A hotel perhaps built around 1920 with much of its original charm and features, although cheap and basic in it's facilities, in a good location.Clean close to the Egyptian museum etc in the Talat Haarb area.

This is an absolute dump! Actually my garbage can is cleaner than this place. We got there after a long flight. The sheets were stained and bloody. We asked for clean sheets and they said that they didn't have any!!! We had the same sheets for all our stay. After arriving in the middle of the night we were so...
