I stayed at the salma for a few nights while in Cairo. It's location isn't too bad, it's a short walk from alot of restuarants however make sure that if you use a taxi that you can give them directions as many get a bit lost. The rooms are always clean but the beds are a bit hard. If you are looking for a cheap hotel to stay in which is comfortable this is it. Also a view of the pyramids from the rooftop.
