We stayed here for 3 nights to explore Cairo. It would be hard to 'do' Cairo on a budget - the City is so overcrowded, congested from dawn to midnight, full of rubbish and hassle - that we really appreciated the cool, calm and comfort of this hotel. Staff were very helpful; the hotel is stylish, the room extremely clean...
