Was in Cairo in March and stayed one night in the hotel. Early following morning (after I booked online) I received a call from the hotel. Mohamed wanted to find out whether I needed to do any tours and a taxi. I explained all that is already taken care of. I stayed there only one night and felt it was a bit unfriendly in terms of the atmosphere. Well some of the reviews talk about views of the Tahrir square, but my room had none. It was opening up to the shopping streets below. So maybe you need to request for a room with good views.
Breakfast was really basic. Had buns, butter, cheese and a boiled egg and jam and one mandarin. My coffee came without an option of milk. It took a long while to get that replaced. Not sure whether they were out of stock with milk or something. So in terms of serving the meal the service was not great.
In the night it is difficult to find the place as the name sign is not facing the street. Got a bit lost returning in the night after an evening out.
The lift to the hotel is really exciting and ancient. Felt like a bit of an adventure.
It was really cold in the night. The walls are not insulated properly, so don't expect to get in the room and feel warm and cosy!
I asked for my phone to be charged and left it charging in the hall area. So, in that sense, it is homely and safe enough. A random person will not walk away with your belongings.
It is really for the rough and rugged.Really not sure whether it is great for families in my view, but it seems like lots of families somehow have enjoyed the stay.
