As it isn't far from the Egyptian Museum, and has some nice local restaurants the Hotel is generally in a good location but you really get what you pay for. Only one member of the hotel staff spoke English and you cannot buy any drinks from them - just walk across the road (carefully!) and you will get large bottles of water for ridiculously cheap prices, there is also a bakery if you are in need of some snacks when you arrive. The room was clean, although the bathroom wasn't particularly, the door didn't lock very well (something which was common in most hotels in Egypt) and had a large gap underneath, the air conditioning was very loud but again that was common to most budget hotels I stayed in. The fridge didn't work and neither did the TV but the room was spacious and the bed sheets were clean - all you are looking for really if you are doing a budget tour of Egypt.
Breakfast was very good with a wide selection of pastries, bread, salads, yoghurt, meats, cheese and boiled eggs. This is a good one night stop to see some parts of Cairo and if all you are looking for is a decent bed to sleep in this is for you.
