Had a great stay here. Had the room for about $20. It is a far call from The Ritz, but I challenge you to find a better room in such a good location near Talat Harb square for $20. The staff are english-speaking and friendly. The bathrooms are just glass enclosures in the actual bedroom, but it works. Water pressure is spotty--especially in the morning. If you are looking for something a step or two above a hostel with friendly, helpful staff, stay here! You won't be disappointed.Come in expecting a budget, value hotel and that's exactly what you get. Helpful (but pricey) tours and taxis can be arranged. Harvard to find because it's in an alley with very limited signage. Can be loud because there are street cafes all around with rowdy guests. Nonetheless, I loved my stay here and would come back again if I were looking for a cheap option in Cairo. Pass on the hostels and other small hotels and give Hotel Royal (or Grand Royal, their other hotel) a chance.

Room Tip: Try to ask for a room that does not face the alley because it gets loud.

Small, friendly hotel in the heart of Cairo. Hard to find by taxi driver. Better print out the Arabic address. Small, clean rooms with comfortable beds and good air conditioning. Breakfast freshly cooked for each customer in the morning. Friendly reception happy to assist and give directions. I traveled with my mother and we felt very safe in this hotel.

Its absolutely a great place to stay while your in downtown Cairo. Its walking distance to several attractions like the Egyptian museum and the river Nile and tons of coffee shops and shops of any kind. This hotel is also mentioned in the Lonely Planet. The staff is also very welcoming and the rooms are very clean and breakfast included. They also offer any tour your heart desire at a good price. I really enjoyed my two weeks there.

I made a reservation here at the last minute (in person) and they were very accommodating. The staff is friendly and non-invasive. I booked their largest room for a reasonable price. The rooms are clean, sheets are clean, and the breakfast isn't bad either. The ensuite room's bathroom is in the corner of the bedroom. This may take some getting used to: The bathroom is simply walled off in the corner with no roof, but the opaque walls still give you the privacy you need. There's a balcony that overlooks the crowded street below. I read reviews regarding noisiness, but it's really not that bad. Elwy St is a pedestrian-only street that is lined with chairs and tables outside of sheesha cafès, so it has quite a bit of people, but its not too loud. It's conveniently close to the Museum and other hotspots. Overall, it's s nice hotel and I would highly recommend it.
