August in Cairo. Forgot to ask for air con. You do the math. The rooms are OK. The street noise, even at 3am, is unbearable. And don't take any offers from the staff to set up a car for you for the day to go see the pyramids - you will get ripped off for a lot of $.

Right in downtown Cairo, at the 4th floor of a building, this is a great choice if you don't want to spend too much and still have a nice place to stay, in a great location, with a good atmosphere. It looks quite old fashion, with really high sealing and furniture that will make you feel you are staying at...

We only stayed for one night at the Pension Roma, but we wish we stayed there the other nights as well instead of the Ramses Hilton! We loved the location of the hotel - it has great restaurants around, including a delicious ice cream / pastry shop. We followed the stream of people with cups of ice cream to the...

The rooms have tall ceilings, great furniture, and clean bathrooms. The owners and employees are great! It is only a 20 minute walk to the River Nile and the...

We booked a double for two nights, and were given a four-bed room with shower - toilet was across the hall. So, plenty of space for unpacking. There was a balcony with fly-screen doors, and very little street noise. The decor is a bit 1970s, but we liked the old lift and the high ceilings. The location is good, with...

My husband and I stayed at the Pension Roma for three nights while on holiday and enjoyed our stay very much. It's just like grandma's house - hard beds and all. The pension is on the 4th (or was it 5th?) floor of a historic building in a convenient neighborhood. With 1930s style, the place had great ambience - there...
