My Hotel is housed on the third floor of a really dilapidated building right across from the Cairo Museum. The location is excellent if Tahrir and the Museum are your places of interest. The rickety elevator and general dilapidation of the building hides a comfortable , small and quaint Hotel/Hostel. The staff, especially the young lady during the day time...

Very positive stay here. It's a nice little hostel with a charming little sunroom/common area. The location is right across the street from the Cairo Museum which can't be beat. They also arranged a city tour (Coptic, citadel, and museum) for me. Note that the tour does not come with a guide, rather it's a driver who takes you to...

The hostel is 10-20 steps away from the Egyptian Museum. It is hard to find though. It is between a few corner stores and stores selling tours. It is in alley within a run down building. The hostel is on the 4th floor. There is an elevator but take it at your own risk. There will be a dark blue...

My Hotel is a very good hostel in a central location right next to the Egyptian Museum. I stayed in a 3 bed dormitory for a very reasonable price. The hostel was a lot better than what I expected for such little money. The room was clean, the sheets were clean and the shared bathrooms were cleaned regularly. But the...

Cons: The great location means it's very noisy, I was able to sleep fine with earplugs, but my husband couldn't sleep at all on our 2nd night there. No towels, weak hot water. Pros: Clean and comfortable, unbeatable location, and very helpful staff. For $10 they picked us up from the airport (a little more expensive than taking a taxi...

I had a most enjoyable stay at this hostel. It's clean and beautiful decor is a big and pleasant contrast to the street entrance. The location is great -close to museum and Ramal station. The staff are also helpfully concerning tours and package deals but not pushy to have you take them.

First the location is ideal at least for backpackers, it is across the road from the Cairo museum and around 2-4 minuets from the bus station. Just a walk away from the square where you can find shops, fresh juice and many affordable places to eat . The hotel is very clean (just get upstairs to the fourth floor then...

It is located right next to the Egyptian museum which was great. Great for a night or to, felt like...

My Hotel was an amazing hostel. The rooms are clean and maintained daily. There are personal showers with hot water. The workers are overly friendly and extremely helpful. It's located directly across from the Egypt Museum and just down the road from the market. They are very accommodating and will help you with everything from advice, booking tours, to directing...

My Hotel is located in a historical building in Downtown Cairo directly across from the Egyptian Museum and only minutes from the Nile. Most of our bright cheerful rooms have a balcony to enjoy the fresh breezes. The hotel faces away from the street so that you can enjoy the luxury of peace and quiet in the middle of Downtown Cairo. The rooms have wood floors, high ceilings, and wardrobes to make you feel at home. ... more   less
