My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights when we first arrived in Cairo. They picked us up from the airport which was nice, because I do not think we would have been able to find the hotel had they not. The room was large and clean enough, they also had a decent breakfast. You can either use their free wifi or they have to PCs which you can pay a few USDs for. The staff was overall friendly, and they did help us arrange transportation to different sites. The location was ideal, which was probably the best thing the hotel has going for it. I still think it was a bit overpriced for a more hostel type atmosphere. People on here have also posted that they were able to change rooms without a problem, but we were put in a room that was very noisy due to the constant talking of the men in the lobby and the view was of a dark street. The people at the hotel said that they usually do not let people change rooms, so we were stuck in that room. Also, the air conditioner was leaking while we were sleeping and just happened to land right on my blackberry and ruined my phone...
