Helpful staff who made us early morning breakfasts. There is a fee for WiFi (24-hour card) although it doesn't always work. Metro stop is about a 12-minute walk if you want to visit the Cairo area (traffic is horrific for taxi rides). I walked around the quiet neighborhood and found restaurants plus convenience shops. Rooms are comfortable and fairly modern...

I stayed here as part of a tour for only one night. The rooms are semi clean, but the bathroom appliances are old and rusty. The lobby and elevator need major remodeling. In American standards this is a two star hotel. The breakfast is not good. The options are very limited. The bread and cheese were old. The coffee is...

We found the staff helpful and willing to feed us for our early starts They also got us a coffee. The rooms were a reasonable size and the bathrooms worked well. We were disappointed that wifi was not available free to our rooms. The beds were firm but comfortable.

My stay at Santana was pleasant. I had the Deluxe Double room and found the extra bed to be quite nice; it became like my living room/sofa, or well that is what I used it for. The room is nice and isn't too old (the same goes for the bathroom). I brought my own blanket. Did I mention there is...

We stayed here 5 nights as part of a G-Adventures tour. Our room was comfortable, attractive and up to date. It was the only hotel on our tour that cleaned and made up your room every day. The air conditioner worked great. So did the refrigerator. The bathroom was nice. The beds were comfortable. We had a little balcony. The...

Lobby looks old. Rooms...

As others have noted, the hotel is past its prime. The rooms look out of the 1970s, AC works but not all that well. Bathrooms have a strange smell to them. Lobby entrance is nice. Staff is very friendly (some of them). Wi-Fi works OK, but not fast and you have to pay for it. (Grab a tasty smoothie across...

Clean hotel room, loud AC. Average staff, breakfeast could have been better. We reccomend ordering a airport pickup, the taxis do not have meters and it took our driver about an extra half an hour finding the hotel. Nice restaurant across the street and supermarket and ATM near by.

This hotel has seen it's glory days. Dated, tired, old located on a fairly quiet street, a little out of the way. Staff are somewhat helpful if there isn't a football game on TV. Breakfast was supposed to start at seven, but no one around. Coffee appeared later, and milk for the coffee somewhat after. Selection was poor. You can...
