First time to Cairo
It was my first time to Egypt (Cairo) and I was looking for places to stay and my friend recommended this place because it was pretty central. I had a huge double room with a balcony. Had a fridge, TV and private shower. The free breakfast was great and the staff helped me out with booking a trip on a Nile cruise. They brought me from the hotel all the way to me seat on the train. Very helpful and lovely stay. Not to mention the snack shack just outside the hotel was handy for late night snacks haha.

2/10 Poor

There was little more to like than the fact it was somewhere we could store our luggage while looking around. Although a shower would’ve been nice, the amenities were dirty and inhospitable. Gnats, flies, cockroaches and street cats abound.
