“Good budget option near the airport”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 October 2011

The hotel is clean, is located in a quiet (off of a main street) neighborhood, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooftop bar/restaurant is a little oasis in the middle of the chaos that is Cairo. The Chinese and Indian restaurants are far from authentic, and the food is mediocre at best. The breakfast is adequate. Egypt has an abundance of fruits and the breakfast would benefit from having more fresh fruits to offer. Overall, The Karvin is a good budget option and I would stay again in the future.

This hotel is in the mid-range when it comes to price but you get a good bit for what you pay for. The room is clean and the water is hot. (Sometimes a rare thing) The staff is excellent and all very knowledgeable with English. This will come in handy if you do not know Arabic. The restaurants are top notch. The location is not in the heart of Cairo, but it is in a great quiet neighborhood in one of the suburbs very close to the airport. A short taxi ride (by Cairo’s Standards) and you are downtown.

Bottom line: it is not the biggest or fanciest but its clean and reliable. I lived in Cairo for several years and this was always my go too hotel when business clients, friend or family would come to visit.

Room Tip: If you are traveling in a group the suite here are an amazing value

The handsomely and conveniently located Karvin Hotel, set in a quiet residential area 30 minutwes from the airport, is our stomping ground whenever visiting Cairo for business or pleasure.

The friendly staff and caring management radiate proverbial hospitality with a personal service touch; locals and Indians flock to the hotel’s Masala restaurant to enjoy its exquisite Indian cuisine. The open bar roof terrace is a pleasant spot to round off any day.

If there’s room for improvement it would have to be the capuccino really. During our stays we encountered one bizarre incident only; woken up at 3am by the reception to confirm our 8am morning call…
