The Sun Hotel is a a wonderful and affordable place to stay in the heart of Cairo. You are close to American University and the US embassy and close to the museum. There are plenty of American fast food if that is your thing, but really, who would travel to Egypt and then eat at McDonald's? The staff is so...

The good: the location is great, the room was clean, so were the shared bathrooms. Paid 100 EGP a night for my double room which is good. Bed was relatively comfortable. The bad: the wifi only worked near the reception area, the noise from the street was very loud as the windows don't seal shut properly and it also let...

Nice & budget friendly accomodation in downtown (close to Egyptian museum). Friendly & extremly helpfull staff. Especially Ahmed Mido, who also organized my dream trip to Abu Simbel and other temples in Upper Egypt. I felt safe all the time (in Cairo as well as on my trips). I actually made it two times, both times I got great price...

The furnitures are complete and such a comfortable place to stay. Good service. Such a a nice breakfast for me. And the most important thing is this area has a good coverage for mobile internet.Easy to get public transport.

Stumbled upon this hotel purely by chance. Was pleasantly surprised by courteousness of the staff members, who spoke English. Room I stayed in was clean, linen and towel was changed daily. Despite its proximity to infamously famous and famously infamous Tahrir Sq, it's quiet and free of troublemakers. Ahmed Mido is the guy responsible for arranging various tours in the...

This is a good budget hotel with friendly staff. After check in I took the afternoon to explore the area. Unfortunately when I returned, someone went through my clothes (there was only one other person in the room and he was out all day) and helped themselves to my best pair of trousers. Good thing I had all my valuables...

Stayed two nights in a shared bathroom room at the Sun Hotel. The location couldn't be better: it's literally steps away from the Metro entrance at Tahrir Square, so you're just a few blocks walk to the Egyptian Museum, the Nile River, and central Cairo's shopping dining and shopping areas. If you're coming by Metro just get off at Sadat...

Sun hotel is a good choice for a budget traveller (like me), the rooms are more than sleepable, the prices are cheap, they do tours with a set price (take it or leave it) which are good. Excellent location, near pizza hut and other familiar western 'restaurants'. Best of all the owners are (strangely for Egypt!) straight up and honest...
