I always stay in this hotel - several times over the last 10 years. True, service can be lazy and surly, the bathroom might not be spotless, but the ceiling fan works! The real gem is the balcony with chairs overlooking the Midan el Hussein, with mosque and tables and restaurants below, the best place to watch the world go by. Breakfast is basic - get a table by the window - and ask for Turkish coffee - so much better than the lousy instant. Staff are friendly when they're expecting a tip, but the good news is that the place seems very safe and I've never had a problem there as a lone female traveller. Great value at around £10 a night - well worth the extra little for the balcony.
