“down town”
Reviewed 3 August 2010

this hotel is in the hard of down town. If you really want to experience kairo and not just see the pyramids - then the bosten hotel will be the right choice for you. one step out of the door and you are in the middle of cairo s life. And in the coffeshop at the 6th floor you will have a good overwiev of down town cairo. the service is good, people nice and internetconnection is also there.

but be aware - if you are a female dont weare miniskyrts or something like that, when you leave the hotel!! people will be more courious about you then you probebly like.

I've been at Bostan 2 times, for my arrival to Egypt and my departure of it. They manage a very good price which includes breakfast, and the attention from everyone there was very welcoming and personalized. Very respectful above all.
The rooms were very clean and the cleaning ladies left everyday decorative towel details on the bed. Nice swans! Rooms have different sizes, im sure if you have any small inconvenience with it, they will give you a new room in a blink.
The hotel is situated in the heart of Cairo, which is excellent cause mainly you are a couple of blocks away from the Museum. They help you plan and decide about the excursions you can make during the time of your visit.
The restaurant is in the highest floor, very cosy, and it has an opened view to the city. The elevator you go up with is very peculiar and artistic too!!!
I loved Cairo and i loved were we stayed. For sure im going back, i hope soon.
Saludos desde Argentina!!!

We stayed at the Bostan Hotel over New Year 2009/2010. I wouldn't stay there again, evevry one in our family is unhappy with this hotel. The manajor of the hotel is affroad, keep away from him.

There is another hotel in the same street, 15-20 meters away, that was much better. ( City freindly hotel ).

Bostan (correct) Hotel, downtown Cairo, is central to most places you want to visit: a couple blocks from the financial district with all the banks, close to the famous Cairo Museum, close (very short taxi ride) to Zamalek Island with all the better restaurants, not far from The City of the Dead. Central to The Citadel, and the ancient super market Khan El Khallili.

For $30/night you get a clean, quiet room where everything in the bathroom works.

They don’t pick you up at the airport, and you get no refrig. But you do get a reasonably new TV, and air conditioner that works perfectly. A large bottle of super chilled water across the street costs 3 EGP.

The roof restaurant is on the 12th floor. Breakfast is free and dinners are really delicious when the main chef is in, and they are cheap. There is always a cool breeze up there, and at night it’s heavenly. No mosquitoes.

Everyone speaks English. All staff members are courteous and friendly, except one. She is the very shortest one. She firmly believes she is the reincarnation of Cleopatra.

The Bostan has three computers on the main floor. They work well and cost 10 EGP per hour.

We always felt safe on the Bostan’s street: 94 Mohamed Farid Street. Getting a black and white Taxi was never a problem: quick and low cost.

We enjoyed it. It’s convenient. We were there four days, went to Luxor, and returned for four more days. It’s low cost, so we could afford to do more and see more places.

I was in Bostan Hotel from June 30 to July 6, 2009 for a leisure trip and I can boast that the Bostan hotel is a good place to stay while having a tour in the numerous tourist destinations in Egypt. They have an excellent and very accommodating staff and a tour packages which is really affordable to anybody. One thing I admired was thier hospitality to the guest especially the manager Mr Alaa. I have already recommended this hotel to my friends who are planning to visit Cairo. Peter (UN Police Advisor, Sudan)
