It was really a great stay in the hotel. Very kind staff and the place was very clean. My only problem was the check in time as my flighr arrived around 6 am so I waited for hours before being able to get into the room, otherwis it was a great experience and I would definitely stay there again.

Decent stay. No more, no less
Finding the place was a little confusing, it’s a boutique hotel in an old building that has a bunch of other businesses and hotels. The room was alright but missing a heater and extra linens to stay warm. The wifi worked, which seems to be a hard thing to come by in Egypt. Could’ve been cleaned and maintained a little better, especially the bathroom, but the staff was nice. Breakfast was served to my room and was traditional Egyptian and decent, I just wish they would’ve brought it to me at the time I asked because I had to check out in 10min when the food arrived. The receptionist and service lady was nice and when I forgot something in the room they messaged me to let me know and even offered to ship it. I picked it up but appreciated the gesture. Due to the customer service, I’m giving them another try and will be staying there again, in a smaller room this time since the price is more than affordable. I’m curious to see whether my experience will be the same or different this time around.
