Review of Berlin Hotel
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 15 May 2012
I stayed at Hotel Berlin for a week in March 2012 and do not hesitate to recommend the place. My room was basic but spacious, bathrooms clean, and - first of all - the owner and his staff honest and extremely helpful. Do not let the somewhat run-down entrance and staircase put you off. I was picked up at the airport and had the same reliable and friendly driver for a daytrip to the pyramids, the price for both was absolutely reasonable. - Anders Johansen, Denmarkj

Hotel Berlin was perfect for my needs - I needed a cheap but comfortable place to stay for a few nights while I found an apartment somewhere in Cairo. While upscale Western tourists may find the place a little dingy, those with some experience in inexpensive Middle Eastern hotels will find it delightfully clean and quite friendly. I got a single room with air conditioning with breakfast included. The best part is the guiding philosophy of the hotel. The owner Hisham seems genuinely concerned that you enjoy your stay in the hotel and in Egypt and is not merely trying to squeeze money out of you. Other hotels would probably encourage you to visit their friend's perfume shop or whatever, but the staff of Hotel Berlin explicitly warns against such people. Upon arrival they gave me a glass of tea and explained to me how to avoid the various touts and cab scams that are prevalent in Cairo. While I have some experience in the area and didn't necessarily need to advice, it was quite refreshing to have it offered. I also repeatedly asked the staff for the fair cab rate for various routes and the obliged happily.

So, if you want an inexpensive, clean, and centrally located hotel in Downtown Cairo with quite possibly the best staff in the market, check out Hotel Berlin.

We stayed in this hotel for a month and the prize was so good for its location. It is close to everything. Downtown is a busy and noisy area, but with the aircondition on the noise was ok also throughout the night. After some nights we got used to it and did not even hear the cars anymore.
The staff and the owner are extremely friendly and helpful. Whatever wish you have they will try their best to fulfill it. For this reason we would definitely recommend this hotel!!
The breakfast in the morning is good and we could even get it at 6am already, without any problems. The room we stayed in is big and also the bathrooms outside are fine.
The beds are very comfortable and the aircondition is working good.
We would recommend this hotel for low budget travelers. It is not an exquisite hotel, but it has everything someone needs. It made us feel at home after some days.

The hotel is for a reasonable price (117 EP per night) and the staff is friendly with an excelent English speaking director who can help with different tasks which a traveller can need (fotocopy of passports, buing film for camera for example). Some rooms are renovated in empire style, air-conditioned with hi-fi acces. A good bonus is possibility to make a day-long trip with friendly and save Coptic driver to the pyramids.

Reviewed 8 February 2011

To be fair to the owner, who is incredibly friendly and helpful, downtown Cairo is noisy no matter where you stay. It's a hectic bustling part of the city. It killed our sleep and left us shattered. We dreaded night time, even with earplugs. Downtown is fun to walk during the day but if you need sleep, unlucky.

The room was cheap (around $20 per night) but the hotel is rather shabby. The entrance is not pleasant, via a large crumbling building with a disused lift shaft that has more cobwebs that a horror film. It is dark and dirty.

The hotel itself is cleaner and the breakfast room and communal bathrooms in good condition. Our room though was old and it showed. It wasn't the cleanest and we were plagued by mosquitos and flies - bring a net.

So this place is fine if you have to stick to a tight budget but if you can afford to, move away from downtown and get greater peace.

thanks
james
