I chose the Juliana Hotel based on the TripAdvisor reviews, and I'd say that it did live up to the positive reveiws that it received. Hany, who owns the place, is kind and helpful, and speaks easy to follow English. His staff is not as multilingual, but are very plesant as well. I always book based on the best mix...

Although we made a reservation for a double room with ensuite upon arrival all rooms were fully booked and the only available 'room' was a small cupboard. An extra room which they build in the former breakfast area, so no window, very small, no fresh air and no bathroom. Bit disappointing and no where to go as it was already...

FANTASTIC stay at Juliana!! It was our first time to Egypt and Hany made our trip so easy, booking practically EVERYTHING for us -- from airport pickup/dropoff, transport to Dahab, pyramid & Islamic Cairo tours to sleeper train tickets from Luxor, train station pickup and a day trip to Alexandria. I've never had such awesome service for such low prices!...

of everything. A short 15 le (3.us) ride to khan el khalil bazaar. Arabic schools in walking distance. Near embassies so security is tight. You can walk around any hour of the day or night and know you are safe. The staff is helpful, friendly, English-speaking....couldn't ask for more. Rooms are spacious and clean. Laundry, kitchen, and stove on site....

I stayed here for one month (studying Arabic at the nearby Arab Academy), and I could not have been happier with my experience! I was in a comfortable ensuite room that included cable tv. The staff is friendly and responsive to the needs of guests. For example, Hany took care of my laundry when the housekeeper had already left for...

Our 5 night stay here was great. The rooms were clean and comfortable with AC, hot shower and satellite TV. The hostel is very conveniently located to downtown (10 min walk). Hany (the owner) was extremely helpful and professional. Thanks to Hany and David we had one of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences of our life.

The hotel is definitely worth your money. The staff is the best ever... I stayed for one day because I came to Cairo for business and it was exactly as was described in this site. The pick up from the airport was there on time (dependable). Actually I called in the night before on short notice after the most tiring...
