“Very good value for money”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

This is very suitable for short business trips when looking for an affordable place near Dokki or Mohandseen, the hotel room is clean, well maintained, and a little bit small but you can live in it.
bathroom and beds are clean, the room doesn't have any entertainment facility except the TV which is not always working, but for me it wasn't a big problem, The hotel is close to Dokki Metro station and nile street which is an advantage while moving in the city.
the overall feedback of this hotel is good as it offers a very good value for money and that's what counts.

Room Tip: the room near the elevator is a nightmare

Wasn't sure if I should stay there or not after reading the reviews in here but I thought I will give it ago because of the location and the price. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, made feel very welcome especially Hany the new manger. Nice airy spacious room overlooking the Nile but need some improvement.

Although it is not a chain or a luxury hotel, but located in a great centeral location, overlooking the Nile river, I can call it an economic solution, it's clean and neat, but it's not luxury at all, it's reasonable for people who seeks a good hotel with exceptional view and a low price, go there if you're one of those, i would recommend it for friends and family seeking a good location.
