8/10 Very good

Cheap, Clean and Friendly
We arrived, went to the 15th floor and found the reception. Parking was a circus, was fun to watch. We got pleasantly upgraded to the family room, with 90degrees view of the city centre.. Ali and his team were nice. you have to give the keys to reception when you leave on your tour. Water is not complimentary. 5LE each bottle. Breakfast is very basic. Bread cheese and coffee/tea. We extended and stayed two nights instead of one. When we were leaving. The parking team did not ask for a tip (like everyone in Egypt), but wanted to charge us for the parking even though the booking was with FREE parking. That was one of the things I look for in finding a room, as we have a car. Ali from reception came down and sorted it out and we were able to move our car. Ali and the team,Thank you for your hospitality, it was great to stay with you.

8/10 Very good

This hotel was excellent for our needs. No extra charge for early check in, near museum, not far from airport. Ali was a wonderful host. Rooms were clean. Breakfast was simple, fresh and delicious (hard boiled egg, bread, cheese, jam and tea).

Good budget hotel near museum
From the outside the hotel doesn't look like much, as it is on the 15th floor of an old bank building. However, the rooms are clean and large. Many have a view across of the river in the near distance. The men at reception were friendly and helpful. It is a ten-minute walk to the National Museum. It is also near a shopping street. A nearby restaurant will deliver good food.

6/10 Good

Clean hotel, poor breakfast and no heating
Location OK: 14th and 15th floor of a skyscrapper, with functioning elevator. 15 minutes on foot to Tahrir Square and Egyptian museum. Room (402 on the door, 602 on the keyring): spacious, clean, nice night view over the junction in front of Hilton hotel, 6th October bridge and Gezira. Big, functioning fridge. No heating in room (impossible to use A/C for heating, as the remote control wasn’t provided), so beware if you are travelling in winter. Erratic WiFi in the room, so if you wish a stable connection your best bet is to go to the reception desk. Ridiculous breakfast, absolutely inadequate for an adult person. Be prepared for self catering. No supermarkets nearby, only small grocery shops with no fixed prices. Fortunately, Abu Tarek koshary take away and restaurant is two blocks away. Overpriced excursions, better try to make a deal for half that price with a local taxi driver.

6/10 Good

good location and very friendly people
they send me a taxi to pick up me late at night. the hotel is well situated in downtown, close to the egiptian museum, in downtown. the zone is safe even if it seems the contrary, and many shops and cafes open. and also a very good restaurant. the people of the hotel is very friendly abd they helped me with my torurs. the taxi driver was the best in cairo. very helpful and useful. my advice would be to insist on people dont smoke in the hotel (most egyptians do) and to ask them to turn on the air conditioner all ni all, i recommend this nice hotel
