We travelled to Cairo for two reasons, the 1st to get married and the 2nd to apply for a visa for my husband. I booked the Invitation Hotel as it appeared to be the only hotel which had good reviews. The hotel is tired and a little cold but to be honest the staff were so lovely and supportive, we... More

No frills hotel, extremely cheap with good accommodation, rooms are spacious, air conditioning good, breakfast was adequate(but don't expect lavishness, you're paying a few quids only). There were only two bathrooms in the whole floor and one of them was closed during our whole stay which caused a bit of inconvenience to us. Situated in the heart of the city... More

We previously stayed at the hostel in 2005 and were very pleased with the cleanliness and the hospitality of the staff. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Unfortunately it appears to be run by a different set of people and it has sadly deteriorated.. We returned in December 2010 and were surprised. The carpet in the room was filthy, the room... More
