6/10 Good

My stay was just ok. Location is hard for taxi to find. I was put in one room but was told i would have to change rooms the next day. The next day they moved all my things while i was out. The room was the size of if a bathroom with NO WINDOW. and bed was NOT A QUEEN WHICH IS WHAT I PAID FOR. Refrigerator did not work so I was moved to another room. NO REFRIGERATOR AND NO WINDOW AND NO WI FI IN ROOM Had to go in Lobby....Since room was clean I just tolerated the room for 2 nights.

Pretty bare-bones hotel. Noisy. Staff didn't seem to have received my booking from Expedia - had to move rooms after one night. Didn't stay full time, moved to another hotel.

DON´T STAY HERE! Be warned, this hotel is not trust worthy. I had booked two nights with them. I arrived at 8:30pm totally exhausted from travelling. I was questioned as to whether I had a booking and when I produced the email confirming that I did, I was asked to sit for a moment. I thought they were still preparing my room. After 10 minutes I challenged them about the delay. Eventually he admitted they had no room, and he was ringing one of his other hotels. 40 minutes latter I was walked 10 minutes to another hotel. This hotel had a much lower rating, and for good reason, it was awful. So be warned, they are scaming people.

10/10 Exceptional

Property is in a once very prominent area, that stills hold the glory of the grandiose architecture of the early 20th century. Area about the size of a couple of city blocks is closed off to cars, with very charming atmosphere. Major financial institution reside there, so there are seated pleasant police officers at every entrance to the area and in the internal roads. As a tourist, you are untouchable and not allowed to be molested by anyone, not even the police, as a policy by the government of Egypt. The government is undertaking major rehabilitation efforts with work in progress not greatly affecting the charm of the area. Hotel on first floor of one of the old buildings, in the center of the pedestrian-only area. Old trees line the wide corridor between the rows of historic buildings. Some of the most popular and upscale shopping streets sourround the area. Outside of the Hotel is run down but the hotel itself, the floor where the hotel is, is in up-to-standards good shape, with modern new plumbing and electric. Working wi-if everywhere and in rooms, Satellite TV, comfortable and clean rooms and beds. AC units are relatively new and effective. Small family of staff serve you with great respect and courteousy, are eager and happy to run errands for you, but don’t forget to tip them, as wages in Egypt are low. They can wash and iron your cloth, cook meals especially for you, etc.. again tip them, Egyptians are happy with smaller tips than anything you maybe used to.

Do NOT Let Magdy Talk You Out of Your Own Plans
Magdy really capitalized on the fact that we were tourists from America. We had plans to catch a sleeper train to Aswan and Luxor and he lied and told us it would be $160 pp because it was illegal to buy tickets in EGP if we were foreigners. He charged us $188USD per person for train-ride (included 2 hotels-one of which was 1 star and the other was 3, transportation to a few non-major temples, and English-speaking tour guides). He bought train tickets that were about $15 in EGP and lied and said it was illegal for us to do that, but no one asked us at all about being foreigners. We paid an extra $55USD per person to get to Abu Simbel. And, we paid all entry-fees ourselves. We spent way more than we should have because of Magdy. Then, he charged us $40USD per person for transportation to Old Cairo, the Egyptian Museum, and to the airport. However, the airport transportation from the airport to the hotel was only $20USD total. He definitely got over on us. Breakfast at Cairo Hotel was definitely not elaborate, so don't look for that. And, they charged us 7EGP for water. (Note: do not expect the hotel to clean the room nightly like at other hotels; it won't happen. But, they will cut your A/C off when you are gone.) Stick with your own plans, don't let Magdy talk you into an alternate plan.
