Different people have different expectations. What we wanted was a clean room with its own bathroom and a breakfast- we came to Cairo to see the city and its sights, not to spend a lot of time in a hotel. In the end, this hotel prooved not to be a bad decision. The hotel was nice in its peak years,... More

My boyfriend and I booked to stay there by booking.com. When we arrived the receptionist gave us an exchange rate that almost doubled the price we booked for the room. We left the hotel without staying there..Avoid it!!!

They did not tell us the emergency calls from Japan several times, even in the revolution period. The receptionists insisted that they had no small changes. The breakfast was so expensive and very poor. They used mold smelling tap water for powder juice. The room service was always absent. So, my conclusion, this hotel was very Ancient Regime Arab hotel.... More

They wanted us to pay a bribe for my husband to stay because apparently if we are going to stay in the hotel room together we need a marriage certificate which could be arranged, for a price of course.

“Cairo is a loud city. The hotel rooms are on the top floors, Apartments on the lower. The back of the building is a bit quieter. Also, don't let them keep your passport. Tell them you need it for a meeting in a government building the next morning.”
