This place has a lot of character and is very convenient for exploring downtown Cairo. I stayed in a very traditional Egyptian style room while the bathroom is quite modern. An interesting clash of design. When the A/C wasn't working properly in my room, they moved me to another room so I have to say that they really aimed to...

I went to the hotel from Alex, and so wasn't offered the free airport pickup. The hotel has no signs. The lift seems really dangerous too. The aircon stopped working in the room I stayed in during the night. But it was quiet, there wasn't much noise from the outside coming in. The bathroom was full of creepy-crawlies. The staff...

The building’s communal entry was shabby and hard to discover for a first time visitor so take up the free pickup offer. While a central lift from the 1920s, making...

Stayed in the hostel for almost 2 weeks now. Very nice place to stay! Close to a big shopping street and to a bunch of western cafe's in Al Zamalek (just over the bidge). Staff is really friendly - so they helped me with finding the Iran embassy by writing me the address in Arabic and English, without any request....
