A good location and a small but nice common area. The room I stayed in was alright, nothing special but it was cheap so understandable. Make sure you bring your own toilet paper and there was nearly none ever supplied. Saying that, that is a lesson in general for Egypt. Bring your own because nobody else will provide it. I'd advise not using the lift, it literally looked like a death trap. If nobody has died in it yet, it's on the cards in the future. But that is a general warning with the whole of Cairo. Everything is broken, will break or has been fixed and will break shortly.
