Well where do I start. There was only one review of this hotel when I booked it so was rather apprehensive.

First off let me tell me just how much of a bargain it was - £100 for 6 people for one night b+b including pick up and drop off at the airport - that alone is amazing. Its bang in the middle of Downtown Cairo with all its noise, dirt, hustle and bustle, amazing shops, lovely people and great cafes and restaurants.

We were in a 3 bedroomed apartment on the 6th floor. Ok, it needs upgrading, but the bed linen was all clean and fresh and we could have had a disco in the lounge area alone it was so big. The apartment was all air conditioned throughout , telly in one bedroom room and another in the lounge.

There are 2 bathrooms and a kitchenette, we didnt use them very much. As the bathrooms and kitchen were so old it was impossible for them to be spotlessly clean, however the towels were clean, floors quite clean, toilets flushed well and it was only for one night so we weren't there a lot.

Masses of storage space and a birds eye view of the streets below where you can see daredevil road crossers making it to the other side after getting accross 7 lanes of traffic, brilliant!.

Reception was small but very efficient. The Manager Ahmed could not do enough for us, personally coming to greet us and offer his advice on Cairo, a charming and generous man indeed, I wanted to bring him home. His staff were probably the most polite and helpful I encountered in the whole of Egypt.

The lifts gave my kids the heebeejeebees so they kept fit going up 6 flights of stairs, they were small and the doors are those you open yourself, perfectly safe and fine.

Breakfast was included, it was on the 11th floor so great views if you looked beyond the dirty rooftops and satellite dishes. We did sit down for breakfast (croissants, toast etc) however I think the refrigerated cabinet wasnt working and our butter had turned to cheese, hence the kids pretending to be sick lol, but no matter, there was an American breakfast place accross the road, cheap and good.

As a big family the likes of the Hilton etc were out of our league but to be honest even if we did have the money we could not have beaten the Cairo Khan, it was a base for us to tour for 2 days and a comfy place to lay our weary heads and we didnt have to worry about the kids being down the hall in that mahoooosive apartment.

Do not expect luxury, do not expect super speed service in the cafe but expect clean comfy beds, space, lovely people, spectacular views, central location and excellent value for money.

I also have to say that the photos on their own website do not do the place justice, I will add some as soon as I have resized them for this site.

Any questions, get in touch.

1 September 2008, Where to start, best to do Pros and Cons I guess is the easiest way to rate the hotel

Pros

1. Close to everything it’s in the middle of Downtown, walking distance to Museum, Nile and Khan Markets
2. The room is ok has beds and a bath / shower, clean water, and Air Conditioning, clean linen daily
3. Room Service 24 hrs, meals ok and cost of meal is good, selection is limited
4. Friendly staff, but not all speak good English
5. Access to the Internet, speed slow
6. Good prices for room
7. Safe to walk around, police on every corner
8. Mc Donald’s is around the corner

Cons

1. The traffic noise is constant all night, wear ear plugs
2. The local streets are full of people all day and night
3. The surrounding area is not the cleanest to walk in
4. Breakfast in the restaurant is limited, we only ate there once and ate most meals out at the Nile Hilton or had room service bring Pizza
5. Were hard to contact, but I was assured they got my emails to confirm our booking
6. The entrance is not actually on 26th July Street, not a real problem unless like us we were walking to find it and got sent in the wrong direction by Police of all people

Overall our stay was good and we saved heaps of money I would recommend this hotel if you don’t mind living cheap, if not go stay at the Nile Hilton for $250 US per night compared with approx $70 US per night, the money we save allowed us to buy more gold and crystal.

Regards

Greg Young (Australia)

This hotel is quite old so don't expect fancy things when you check in. The furniture are a bit tired but not terrible. We stayed for 3 nights and lucky enough to get one of the bigger rooms. Can't recall the room number (maybe 912). The bathroom is also big. The best thing about this hotel is the location. Plenty of restaurants around and a gazillion shops that close past midnight. By dawn traders will start their business by the roadside. Don't forget the eat at GAD restaurant behind the hotel. Nice restaurant with plenty of choices. Walk further to the back is the pastry shop by the corner of the street. Always full. Sells very delicious baklava and other pastries. The road can be very congested as it is right smack in the city and mind you, the traffic in Cairo is one of the worst in the world.

If you are looking for a budget hotel with a good location, this hotel is worth it.

We had serious reservations about this place after reading the mixed reviews but our friends were keen on the location so we thought we'd give it a go.

We were there on 2 occasions during March 20 10 and between our rooms and our friends we saw 3 different rooms on the same floor (rooms 410,411, 412). I've given the place a 2 rating overall, but the 3 rooms were quite different in size and fitness for habitation (but all the same price) and would have rated a 3, a 2 and a 1 if rated separately. As others have noted, traffic noise is a problem - this was the case for all 3 rooms here.

Each room had a small foyer - larger in the 2 larger rooms.
Room 410 was the smallest and in the worst shape, about 25 sq m for the main room and had the smallest (about 9 sq m) bathroom - the plumbing behind the handbasin constantly leaked (quite badly) and water flowed uninterrupted across the bathroom floor to a drain. We requested it to be fixed and were assured it had been, but of course it wasn't. About half the power points were U/S. Fridge was in the room and shared a common power point with the TV - no double adaptor, so make your choice. Room was configured as twin beds

Room 411, a corner room, was huge, probably 40+ sq m plus a big (long) 12 sq m bathroom. Everything seemed to work. There was extra furniture in this room - a 2 seater lounge. Room was configured as twin beds.

Room 412 was still a good size - about 35 sq m for the main room and 10 sq m bathroom and all the plumbing worked but half the powerpoints were U/S. Room was configured as a double.

For all, the shower was in the long wall of the bath, a common feature in Egypt. There was a (chained) plug for the bathtubs, but none for the handbasins.

The general state of cleaning for the rooms was quite poor. Toilets are given a quick scrub and they have a vacuum cleaner and mop but t he only cleaning product I saw on the trolley was glass cleaning spray. Tile floors are given a quick mop with a wet cloth but it must have been years since floor tiles were cleaned properly (either scrubbed or using some cleaning product) - the built up grime made it hard to see there was pink in the original floor tile colour in light coloured Room 412. Sticky stains on the carpet (jam?) looked like they'd been there for a long time. Similarly, a rub over the glass table surfaces with a hand towel came away very grubby indeed.

Breakfast in the restaurant was poor - the Malaysian tour groups were in early and nothing was topped up or replaced. If you hunted around you could find the replacement juice (hidden away from the buffet end, just outside the kitchen) - otherwise go without. Tables were only slowly reset after use - everyone seemed to get the hang of scrounging tables for unused cutlery. Teaspoons were magically produced form waiters pockets only on request. Tablecovers were dusted off but certainly weren't changed regularly - we got the same table 1 & 1/2 days apart and the egg stains were still there. Dinner menu was limited - food quality was "OK" for dinner but waiter service was generally poor. 1st floor cafe - used by a few locals but they play the TV very loud (Egyptian soap opera) in the day and were not prepared to turn it down even though it was only staff watching - we left.
On the positives (only a few):
good location,
Free and fast WiFi in the lobby
Friendly English speaking reception staff

Good budget hotel in heart of city. Rooms are good size, old decor, but very clean and comfortable. Right in heart of Cairo at very, very noisy intersection, you'll definitely know you're in Cairo with a million horns going off until appx. 10pm. Staff's English not great, but they try hard to understand and please. They seem to cater alot to Egyptian businessmen in addition to groups & families. I had a key problem with my lock, and they were up to my room within 10 minutes to replace entire handle and lock. To me they were always helpful.
Dark lobby on 2nd floor, so looks a bit dingy at first glance, but once in rooms you'll see very clean despite being dated. Breakfast was not European in fare, but Egyptian. Tomatoes, feta cheese, toast, yoghurt, hard boiled eggs, cereal, something that looked like porrige, tea, and tang orange juice. Don't expect to fill up on it. Room service food cheap and decent, you'll find something decent on the menu including spaghetti. Also, laundry service also relatively cheap. Internet spotty. Two terminals, but connection seemed to be down alot. Plenty of ATMs around area. American type restaurant kitty corner to hotel if desperate for decent burger (although they do have spices in their beef that you can't order without).
Location great for walking places, couldn't have been better. And in this hotel, you know you're in Egypt and not in America which for me was a plus. For larger families or groups, this is a perfect hotel for you! Have two & three & four bedroom suites that share a common room, great deal. Unless they've updated in last year, don't expect much by way of TV (old with just a few stations), or minifridges in rooms, they seem to be from the 1980's and you'll be lucky if the one in your room works. Never at any time felt the least bit unsafe at this hotel.
Overall, good, clean, safe budget hotel (if a bit outdated) that I wouldn't have a problem staying at again.

I spent two nights in Cairo Khan back in October. The hotel building is old and so is the room furniture. Despite the cleanliness of the room and bathroom, the bed linen and towels are very worn out and need to be renewed. Breakfast was very limited and the breakfast room was empty of people as was the hotel and I thought I was the only resident! Even though I was on the 9th floor, the noises coming from the street made it impossible for me to have a good night's sleep. The good thing about this hotel is that it is in the middle of a shopping area where you can see many shops selling shoes, clothes, handbags and other things.

This hotel was in quite an all right location - walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. Staff are generally friendly, food served at breakfast on the top floor was average. The cafe on the first floor offers drinks and shisha - the turkish coffee was quite good and they whip up a guava milkshake which is really tasty - no one speaks much English, so if you're ordering one, it's "guava belaben" in Arabic.
We were not impressed with the "help" we received from front end staff. After saying we wanted to go to the pyramids, we were told they would organise a car for us as the taxis are "unsafe". (Later, we took taxis and didn't feel unsafe). The driver took us to a dodgy operation at the pyramids - he refused to take us to the entrance and we were forced to go through a "tour agency" which charged us an arm and a leg for a "guide" and camels and horses. This fee didn't include entrance to any of the pyramids or anything, merely a wander around and a look at them from the distance. We were completely stitched up.
The hotel also organised a cruise on a boat on the Nile complete with dinner which also was a total rip off.
When they said they had more things planned for us the following day we declined. We also declined having the driver take us to the airport and paid less than a quarter of their quoted price by taking a taxi off the street.
Bedrooms were old fashioned and a bit crummy but very spacious. Fine for somewhere to put your head down for the night, but only if you're really tired as it's pretty noisy!
