We chose this hotel based on the multiple positive hostelworld reviews, which we accurate reflections often hotel and service provided.
We arrived at the hotel in the small hours of the morning and so no rooms were yet available. Yet they gave us a quiet place to rest and made us feel safe. On waking, we were brought teas and breakfast and helped to organise reasonably priced tours with our own personal guide and driver. There was no pressure selling, simply an effort to assist us in making the most of our stay in Cairo. We felt we could easily have declined and would have been treated no differently.
The room was basic, but of a good standard - clean, comfortable, with decent wifi, en suite facilities, towels provided and air con. We had a room with no window, which meant a great nights sleep!
The guide and driver we were found, were knowledgeable, spoke good English and had our best interests at heart. We were taken to good but cheap eating establishments, protected from most pressure sales and tourist scams.
The hotel staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Don't be put off by the entrance to the hotel, it's well worth the price for the staff, room and central location.More
