Stayed on a B&B basis. The hotel is very shabby and unclean. I was in a single room close to a very noisy lift and reception area. My bed looked like it hadn't been changed since the last occupant stayed. The ensuite had a bad drains smell. The shower area had used soap in the soap dish and bottom of...

Pros: Rooms were clean, nice terrace for breakfast. Cons: At every other hotel we stayed at in Egypt, the staff was helpful and friendly, but not at the Mayfair. They made us pay for our entire stay on the first night, they couldn't be bothered to help us find restaurants or laundry service. From the man who called himself "The...

I've stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks. My (renovated) "large single room" was a kind of burial cell, as big as the bed (I can't imagine how is the standard single room!). The furniture were very old, the wardrobe door broken, and the bedside table was... a very NOISY minibar! The room was very close to the laundry, too,...

Hi, I, my wife and my 2 years old daughter are the victims of this worst hotel in Cairo. We were having the booking in this hotel from 23rd Dec to 26th Dec and then again on 31st December, 2009. We came on 23rd December late night from UK. First of all, the reception staff asked us more money (660...

Booked the hotel through their website. Turns out that it was not their website but an agent. so there was an added charge for that. When i got to the hotel - they only accepted local cash - which meant a trip to the nearest ATM to get the money which was just down the road. The room itself was...

The hotel is in a quiet area of the city with a lot of green and embassies nearby. Good restaurant, coffee bar and bookshop within walking distance. The hotel is in a twenties apartment building with original elevators (you could make a fantastic luxury hotel in the building!). Reception friendly. 10% discount with Footprint Guidebook on very reasonable rates. Breakfast...

This hotel had a/c which is a must in Cairo. It is located in Zamelek which is a really nice suburb of Cairo. We could walk over the Nile into downtown Cairo (about 30 mins) but there were enough nice restaurants around our hotel. The staff were great and they even stored some luggage for us.

We recently stayed at The Mayfair Hotel in Zamalek, Cairo at the beginning and end of our 5 week trip around Egypt and the Middle East. We chose the Mayfair because we thought the island of Zamalek would provide us with an escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Cairo and this certainly was the case. On our first...
