Small, friendly hotel in the heart of Cairo. Hard to find by taxi driver. Better print out the Arabic address. Small, clean rooms with comfortable beds and good air conditioning. Breakfast freshly cooked for each customer in the morning. Friendly reception happy to assist and give directions. I traveled with my mother and we felt very safe in this hotel.

Its absolutely a great place to stay while your in downtown Cairo. Its walking distance to several attractions like the Egyptian museum and the river Nile and tons of coffee shops and shops of any kind. This hotel is also mentioned in the Lonely Planet. The staff is also very welcoming and the rooms are very clean and breakfast included....

I made a reservation here at the last minute (in person) and they were very accommodating. The staff is friendly and non-invasive. I booked their largest room for a reasonable price. The rooms are clean, sheets are clean, and the breakfast isn't bad either. The ensuite room's bathroom is in the corner of the bedroom. This may take some getting...

We arrived in the early morning and they offered us a room for half of the price. They also offer many tours. The room was a bit cold. There was a leakage in the toilet so the bathroom floor was constantly wet. The glass door of the bath room did not close. Insufficient space on both sides of the bed....

I was rather disappointed by this Hotel. The good thing about it is the location, you have cafes and night life all around and Tahrir square is in 10 minutes walking distance. However, the cafes are directly below the Hotel, with lots of chatter and TV, so either you have a very sound sleep, or you'll need earplugs. Also there...

think as usual in most of the hotels in Egypt they are not as you look on the internet. Their facilities are not well take care by the owner. We paid 50 euros per night for a double room. For the same rate in Europe you will get a 5 time better hotel and service. The life standard in Egypt...
