I stayed at Havana Hotel for 4 days and overall, I would recommend this hotel, although there are a few gotchas.
The hotel is tastily and efficiently designed to maximize the space of the rooms, the beds are firm, and the hotel is extremely clean. The service was great, as the staff is very accommodating. Hotel location is in a convenient & safe area of Mohandessein, where there are restaurants, markets, and shopping just minutes away. However, the hotel is not located on a 'busy' street, by Cairo standards. Wi-fi in the room was excellent!
As for the gotchas 1.) Most of the rooms face adjacent buildings or alleyways, which makes for an awful view. Cairo is a place with many old buildings and trash is about everywhere, so this is the view unless the drapes are shut. 2.) The lighting in the room is soft and dim. 3.) The hotel is 2 floors, 15 rooms each. There are no elevators in this hotel. 4.) They have free afternoon tea and cake from 7pm-8pm, and a pretty good breakfast although some items (including the cake) had a freezer burned taste. 5.) The doorbells are loud, so much so one would think it is their own bell ringing. I found myself checking the door the first few times, then learned to ignore the doorbells thereafter.
Factoring in the pros and cons, this hotel is worth considering for your trip, especially at this price range.
