Let's start with the good points: the location is great, overlooking Tahir Square with easy access to Sadat metro station, Downtown and the Egyptian Museum; the staff are helpful and friendly; the rooms are a decent size and everything works; it's fairly cheap, given the location. On the downside: it's quite noisy, even with the windows closed thanks to the...

The hotel is very centrally located and is essentially opposite the Egyptian Museum and Tahrir Square. The staff is extremely friendly and always willing to help in any way they can. The only issue I had was that even though the hotel is on the 5th floor of a building, you can hear the incessant honking from infamous Cairo traffic...

I would highly recommend this hotel! They have the friendliest staff of anywhere we have ever stayed. They were always greeting us or offering to assist us with our visit, and there was someone available at the front desk 24/7. The hotel is able to arrange car rides or day excursions for you as well. The complimentary breakfast was good...
