I love this place, quite authentic and original. Staff is nice, food is nice, rooms are beautiful. The view is adorable. The location is amazing. Step away from a lot of attractions. It's hugging the sea. You can go to Agatha Christie's room, or Taha hussein's or even to Om Kalthoum.

We stayed at the Hotel Cecil after travelling by train from Cairo. We planned to stay there after staying at Mena House in Giza, and on past trips to Egypt, at the Winter Palace in Luxor and the Old Cataract in Aswan. So we wanted to collect another historic hotel in Egypt. The Hotel is great with a fantastic open...

This is lovely historical hotel with efforts toward greatness, but the edges are rough. Our room is quite nice, but the rough edges show up in poor grouting, inoperable drain stoppers and a non-functioning scale. The staff is wonderful, but come with an eye for appreciation, not criticism. Yes, you hear traffic noise, but consider it atmospheric. There's no 120...

The location of the hotel is brilliant with good views of the corniche, but the interior, cleanliness and breakfast were no more than a 3*. Staff were helpful. Beware of the loud music bellowing throughout the night from nearby restaurants/bars and cars hooting all night long.
