It's hideous. It's hard to find. And dirty, creepy, scary. And I grew up in Egypt! Even with my no-longer-fluent Arabic the people were unhelpful and rude. We paid for 2 rooms, they gave us one and claimed they were fully booked. I guess by all the mosquitoes and roaches. The toilet leaked, the water came out as steam, the...

I booked this hotel through Expedia. The rating was 3 out of 5. Comparing this rating with other hotels I stayed at, I thought it was not too bad.... What an absolute shock getting there 8PM at night. The hotel entrance is in a very dark, dangerous alley. The reception is on the 3rd floor. There is a steel cage...

The common area as you arrive looks nice, don't be fooled! The rooms are filthy (floors etc had not been cleaned in years, there were layers of dust and dirt, the water back up in the drain in the shower) and dangerous (power points without covers, open sewerage drains etc). Our first room had no hot water but we were...

A friend and I stayed at the Gresham for four nights. For two people, it was the same price as some of the Hostels in the area and for privacy, air conditioning, and an excellent staff it was very enjoyable. Anyone staying in Cairo on a budget, the Gresham is a great place to stay.
