My mother and I stayed at the Windsor for three nights. We decided to stay in one of the double deluxe rooms for a couple dollars more. We were absolutely satisfied with the room. Very large, high ceilings, very clean, refrigerator, and a huge bathroom. The front desk staff were great. We decided to arrange tours through them and everything...

We had originally booked here for our first three nights in Egypt before traveling south. Thank god our flight was delayed and we were only there for the one night. The room was filthy, paper peeling off the walls and I felt uncomfortable taking of my shoes and walking on the carpet.. The bed linen and towels should have been...

I'd say all of the previous reviews are relatively accurate. Great old place in the middle of it all at a decent price. However.... bed bugs or fleas in the rooms and something crawled off my plate as I was eating (not sure if it was from the room or the kitchen). When I left for another hotel after two...

I only had 3 days in Cairo after a meeting in Alexandria so I had to make the most of it. Trip Advisor searches suggested the Windsor was my kind of place - lots of character, good location (it's all relative as this is downtown Cairo), and inexpensive. It turned out to be all this and more, the more being...

The Windsor is a unique old Cairo hotel, it has plenty of atmosphere and the double rooms are spacious and filled with a mix match of antique furniture and my favourite the bakelite phones which still connect to a switchboard. Breakfast is included in the price and they have a great bar which is reminiscent of what I would imagine...

We highly recommend Windsor hotel in downtown Cairo, Egypt. It is a funky place with pristine furniture, very polite staff, and relatively clean beds and toilet. The location is amidst the clutter and dust of downtown, which makes the hotel even more desirable place to stay. You get a real feel of Cairo, staying in this location---it is worth the...

The best place in Cairo. Very international place with more than century history. It is a hotel which could become your second home. It's old fashion means antique atmosphere of the hotel. You can find all kind of assistance from hotel personell. Many presonal thanks to Doss family.

The Windsor is a wonderful, old hotel with great charm and character - usually not obtainable in Cairo today. It is a great place to meet interesting people from all over the world. I highly recommend the hotel, particularly as it provides an idea of what Cairo used to be like.

I stayed at this hotel due to the good reviews. Personally, I wouldn't recommend this place at all. The bathrooms are disgustingly dirty. Plus the matresses on the beds are old and super uncomfortable. Overall, the hotel needs a facelift and a good cleaning. I would spend your money elsewhere. I definitely won't be returning.

I stayed here in July for four nights at the beginning and end of our trip to Egypt - travelling with my 20 year old daughter and 17 year old son. We had two rooms and definitely did not have renovated rooms but we really liked the hotel. The rooms were clean. The location was great, the bar/ restaurant was...
