There was nothing special or endearing about the Mayfair. The hotel staff was not rude. The rooms were nothing special. It would have been nice if the bathroom was a separate room but the walls didn't go all the way to the ceiling. Breakfast was mostly packaged breads with little fruit. The location was fine and the neighborhood was safe...

This is one of the cheapest hotels in Cairo. I found it satisfactory for the price. It's not the Marriot, it's not the Hilton. One of the viewers was expecting a lot for the price. The staff is very friendly. They keep the rooms clean. It's true that you're told not to leave money in the room. I didn't. But...

The owner is a rude and arrogant person The hotel is not responsible for belongings in the room There is NO PARKING Very bad service I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. For the price they gave us I was expecting at least a parking and a smart service. I will do my best that all the world know...

The hotel is decently priced and offers all the good basics. While it would be helpful for the hotel to provide a few services, such as laundry and card payments, it still is a very comfortable place to stay. The staff are very helpful and the owner is very kind. I stayed for 10 days and really enjoyed my time...

This hotel is cheap and cheerful. The staff are very pleasant and helpful. The rooms have a sort of old fashioned elegance which is pleasant. The rooms are cleaned every day and there are a superfluity of towels for the en suite bathroom. The shower is tight but eminently usable. The breakfast is the same every day but adequate and...

The area of Cairo this is in, Zamalek, is the safest and cleanest area. Not to say Cairo is unsafe, Zamalek is simply very clean relative to other areas. The hotel is located on the 2nd floor of a building off a main transit road. A very clean, Western grocery is literally 30 seconds walk from the hotel, and great...

Staying in Zamalek is 100% worth it and Mayfair is one of few affordable hotels there. The staff are sweet and helpful though take care to know who actually 'works' there and who is a 'guide.' The hotel itself is an old mansion (I think) and like most buildings in Cairo, could use a facelift. BUT, as I said before,...

I really wanted to like this hotel because it is easier to stay in Zamalek these days given the volatile situation downtown. Unfortunately for 45$ a single room, it is over priced for the crammed space and there were so many mosquitos it was hard to sleep.
