I couldn't believe the price of this hotel which included breakfast for 2 people. Wasn't sure hoe it would work out but decided to give it a try. The taxi driver that took us there from the airport was uncertain if we were in the right place but I recognized it from photos that I had seen online. It is a very basic hotel but was clean and tidy and we found the location pretty good. The hotel is on the 12th floor and there is an elevator to take you up. The lentil soup that they serve in the restaurant is very good.
Really amazing hotel , with a well trained staff. Totally recommend for everyone . Food and buffet were excellent and have several types of food . Special thanks for Mr Mohamed Fateh el Bab events manager he was very cooperative person
I'll give you the positives first. The place is clean, has a pleasant lobby with a reading room on the side. The restaurant on the top floor is good; this is important because the restaurant choices in the neighbourhood are limited. I had laundry done, and they did a good job for a low price. As for location, it's within walking distance of the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities and Tahrir Square. The staff is mostly very helpful, BUT... anybody who has traveled in Egypt knows that the quality of customer service varies greatly. In my case, when I was checking out, the woman at the desk told me I had to pay cash. I said, OK, no problem, where's the nearest bank machine? She said, "banks are closed on Sunday." That, of course, was a ridiculous response. Fortunately, another employee within earshot said that there was an ATM around the corner. Turned out that he was wrong, too. There are actually two ATM's a half block down the street. So no problem, but you really have to wonder, how can somebody work in a place and not be aware of where the nearest ATM is? It's important to know that the reception desk is actually on the tenth floor. This isn't an issue during the daytime, because there's a desk at the building entrance. However, if you arrive at 3:30 AM like I did, that desk will be unmanned. I had to bang on the elevator door for a while before the front desk guy became aware of my presence. The staff should really advise people of this when they book for late arrival. Finally, most taxi drivers don't know where the Osiris is. This is no surprise, because most Cairo taxi drivers don't know where anything else is, either. But be sure to have the hotel's business card with you to show the driver, and have the hotel's location on the GPS app on your cell phone.…
The Osiris Hotel was wonderful. The staff was considerate, helpful, flexible, and exceptionally kind. Whatever I needed, they were incredibly helpful and very welcoming. They were never pushy! While everyone there was wonderful, I'd like to especially thank Carlos, Abed, and Mina for making my stay wonderful. (Oh, and their English was excellent.) The location was great - right in the center of everything yet quiet. The breakfast (included) was very good, as was the dinner, all on the rooftop with a great view of the city. The staff at Osiris really made my vacation great. Highly recommended.
The staff at Osiris are all very helpful and friendly, and not in your face trying to sell tours etc. My room was great - clean and the heater worked just find, and the bathroom also was great as the hot water was really hot! The cleaners come and clean your room on a daily basis is you wish. The wifi is great too. The location is excellent as it is down town and right by Tahrir Square so close to the Egyptian Museum and the underground so very quick and easy to get to Giza. There is also a great café close by down the street on the way to Tahrir.
