“Our digs in Cairo”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

We stumbled upon Mesho Inn hotel by accident, we were actually looking to stay at Traveler's house hostel one floor above but ended up staying here instead. We were happy with our find as we were there during the 25 Jan revolution anniversary and Mesho and Islem cautioned us to be careful and gave us their phone numbers in case we needed help. That was appreciated. Of course being in the center of Cairo is noisy and you have to put up with Mozzies flying around but the room is pleasant and clean, and the breakfast tea is a good way to greet the morning. Would stay there again.

If you've been around tripadvisor for any amount of time you will know reviews can be very misleading. You must consider the reviewers frame of reference to evaluate the review. Mesho Inn is a perfect example. By no means do the reviews match reality. As a hotel Mesho would score a one star on a typical AAA type hotel scale, not horrendous but just bare minimum with everything. Granted, Mesho is a hostel not hotel therefore it deserves a 2 star. The location is actually quite good in downtown Cairo. The rooms are fairly large and spacious but not much attention is paid to routine cleanliness. As with many lower end hostels and hotels in this area Mesho occupies a floor in a very old, run down building. Bathrooms are basically added in to the rooms by walling off a corner with a 6 foot wall (ceilings are very high, 10+ feet). The staff do not speak English which in itself is not a problem but I did have issues with the reservation where they tried billing much more than the booking.com reservation. I was also billed 2X the amount for the quoted airport transportation with the excuse that the rate quoted was for a taxi not private car even though they sent the car. Both were difficult to sort out with the language barrier so I ended up paying the additional fee for transportation. Although probably fine for a single person looking just for a place to sleep, two or more people can find better accommodations elsewhere.

A great hotel in the downtown area! Really close to the Egyptian museum and the Metro station (Nasser). The hotel was clean and the staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend staying here

Mesho Inn was just right for me. I am a person of little needs therefore I had no issues. Mesho and his staff were very hospitable. The price was nice and the staff did their best to accomodate my needs. This place might be a good place for a solo backpacking traveller who isn't into luxury and high-ended comfort. For about $20 dollars a night, the price was right.

Though i am late in writing this review ... visited Cairo in 2011 october and Mesho inn peple were so friendly .. it was like a home where you forget the shortcoming of a place even if there are any ... We were going and coming from cairo to other destination leaving our luggage there and anytime we come people (Ibrahim and other ) welcomed us with smiling face ... The ancient elevator lift and set up took us to an era ... love this place ....
