My stay at New Palace Hotel was absolutely phenomenal. Immediately after being picked up from the airport I was taken to the owners office where I was given lunch and tea, and had a chat about safety during my stay as well as how to go about transportation and the things I wished to do while I was there.

Had a very special time there, since it was close to the Nile and the Museum (the subway also!). The owner is a very nice person, and so is the staff there. The reception is so cool! 😊 Cairo can be so crazy, but definitely so unforgettable.

I love dodgy little joints like this. Ones that make you feel like you're in a movie. Full of character. It's in a prime location, just north of downtown. The staff were unobtrusive, the decor dated and to my taste. A fantastic place to stay on an epic journey to one of the most epic of places.

Ahmed (the owner) is a top man and speaks good English. He gave me useful tips and tricks to navigate around the city. The location... More

I stayed at this hotel during my visit in Egypt, and I gotta tell y'all that it was great. The staff was always there to help me, even gave me some tips to avoid hassle when I went to visit The Great Pyramid of Giza.

My girlfriend and I stayed in this hotel when we were in Cairo back in Feb 2015. Like many other hotels in the downtown Cairo, you will have to take a lift upstair for the hotel and it is conveniently located in the central with number of Koshari shops around within 200m of reach.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The open air roof garden is only one of the attractive features of this budget hotel. It's a legend among budget travelers and is still one of the cheapest places available in Cairo. The nice roof garden is divided into different parts. Every part resembles different culture of Egyptian life. The restaurant, open 24 hours, has an oriental sitting area, a water fountain and a billiard table free for the guests. ... more   less
