I had stayed in the hotel for 5 nights with my family. Had read the good reviews here and decided to give it a shot. It really is a hostel rather than hotel as not all rooms have TV's. That said however, the people made the stay there memorable and were very accomodating towards our requests. All in all a...

Generally speaking, there are not many good budget options for Cairo hotels. This happens to be one of them. I stayed there for a week and felt completely welcomed and taken care of by the staff. In addition, the hotel is located at the end of a street filled with cafes where locals sit out and play backgammon, smoke hookah...

I am rating and reviewing this place more as a hostel than a hotel. Therefore the four stars. The location is in the heart of Cairo, within a walking distance of the Egyptian museum. Due to our late flight departure and noon check out from previous hotel, we opted to rent a reasonably priced room and do some last minute...

Stayed at Hotel Royal for one night before flight out of Cairo. We arrived in the morning and got a taxi from the airport. No one knew where "Elwy Street" or "Hotel Royal" was and our driver had to confer with several other cabbies. Finally, while looking through my papers, I found some correspondence from Hotel Royal that had its...

The excellent service started from the moment of our airport pickup in Cairo.We spent more than 30 nights in Cairo at several different hotels but I can say this is one of the best. Location is great, in the heart of downtown about 5 minutes far from the Egyptian museum .The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were...

I'd arranged several pickups from the airport through the hotel as I came and went from Cairo several times. These all worked like clockwork, and on one occasion they even waited 3 hours when my flight was delayed! All the staff in the hotel were exceptionally friendly, which resulted in a relaxed atmosphere in which you felt very comfortable. Something...

This hotel has big plush rooms with high-ceilings and extremely comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Manager Hussein not only looks after your stay, he knows everything about getting around Cairo and Egypt. We were in Cairo at a pretty intense time, and coming back to Hussein, Madelaine and Mona at the Royal was like returning home to family. We've been...
