Service in this hotel is amazing. Mary and the rest of the crew treat you like a king and meet all your expectations and even more. The last day in this hotel they even delivered breakfast to our room without us asking, which was an amazing touch.
The location is right in the heart of downtown cairo, so it is a battlefield down there, but don't worry, the Talisman is a haven in this wild Egyptian storm of honking cars, overzealous merchants, and swarms of pedestrians.
The room was OK, something comparable to a Super 8 Motel in the US. There is some nice, original Moroccan decor in the room however, And the common rooms are even more richly decorated, the common rooms (office, lounges, etc..) are amazing in fact.
WIFI and Computer access is free, which was good and very convenient. Reception was always available 24hrs to answer any of our questions and help us navigate the wild streets of Cairo! :)
Elevator to hotel is nice and antique but when we were there it was not working properly and we had to take the stairs from time to time.
Price of the rooms was around $100 US a night, which is not expensive but ain't cheap either considering this is Cairo and the quality of the room wasn't up to par to what you'd get in the US for $100 a night.
Overall, this is a great unique hotel in a unique place in Cairo, and because of the amazing service of the hotel staff, we wouldn't mind staying here again.
