The entrance of the building is dilapidated. Filth and debris on the ground floor, lights flicker if they aren’t blocked by grime, the elevator is like one that goes down a mine shaft, and the buttons don’t have actual buttons but holes with tape on the side with arabic numerals. If you look up there’s threads of dust draping from the elevator car. The lobby smells like smoke since people just rip cigs right in front of the elevator. The rooms are nothing like the pictures. Once you’re within a meter of the sheets and pillows, you can see old stains, bits of dust, and holes. Don’t look close to any one area of the room since you begin to see how dirty it is. The “private” bathroom is across the hall and accessible by key, they don’t even have soap, just a toilet and a grimy bathtub. No safe, the AC is weak, and all the drawers and floor are dusty. The “TV” was maaaybe 14 inches and cracked. The carpets in the hallways are visibly yellow with dust and who knows what. The curtains are poorly fitted In the room and barely block out the light and the balcony door doesn’t close properly. Looking out the windows you get wafts of the smell of trash from the alley below, and the balconies have dystopian scenes of rubble in the view. The WiFi is weak, often disconnects, or randomly stops loading, just have to pray that even short YouTube clips load. Although it is cheap, we paid 30$ a night for a room with two beds and you can easily get something MUCH nicer for just a bit more. We ended up leaving after a single day, didn’t even stay the night. Burned 90$ but went to an actual Novotel for only slightly more. As we checked out early, the concierge person didn’t even look surprised: “change of plans?”

Staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were clean. The location was great and walkable to nearby attractions. Breakfast consisted of an omelet, bread, jam, cheese, honey, and fruit. In addition to tea, coffee, juice. The hotel is on the 6 th floor of the building. Overall it was a great value and I'd Highly recommend visiting this hotel

This is one of the most coziest hotels in Cairo, staff are more than that, they become friends and family! Rooms are wide and incredibly clean, and unbelievably cheap compared to the comfort you get. Another advantage is that they are always 100% there for you, at any time and any moment. We have booked there many times and every time is a great experience!!!!!

Excellent place! I have seen many hotels in Cairo downtown and this is the best option! The place is very well located, it is very very clean, the hostal has all you need, the rooms are cozy and beautiful, the beds are comfortable, they have assistance in English 24 hours, you feel at home here, but with the advantages of a hotel. The staff are incredibly nice and helpful.
