“Great place and great people in the heart of Cairo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2011

We visited Cairo last December and had the pleasure of living at the Osiris Hotel. It is a nice clean place in the heart of Cairo, only ten minutes walk from Tahrir Square. The rooms and the hotel was very clean and with good amenities. If you are looking for a good clean place with a central location at a reaonable price, Osiris cannot be beat. This hotel was rated a Best Buy by Lonely Planet and we totally agree.

The owners and their family were very knowledgable and helpful with all aspects of Cairo and helped us organize trips (car, driver, guide) and taxis at reasonable prices and short notice. With their help, we felt confident to navigate the city, even though our Aarbic was limited to standard phrases. We recommend them unconditionally.

Thank you, Nabil, Josianne and Nadine for being such great hosts.

My husband and I and our 14 month old stayed here for four days and were very happy we did. It is in a great location to walk to the Egyptian museum as well as close to restaurants and Tahrir Square. The hotel was clean and staff were very friendly. Loved the balcony and roof top patio overlooking Cairo.

We loved this hotel. Don't be put off by the scary elevator ride (no inside door, buttons poorly marked). Once you get to the hotel at the top of the office building it's a little oasis. Spotlessly clean, helpful, friendly staff. The hotel is in a good location. We walked to the art gallery, the markets and the main square. The rooftop deck had a fabulous view.

This is not a 'chain-style' hotel. So don't expect a TV and mini bar in characterless room.

The bathroom is similar to others we experienced in the Middle East, no shower curtain.

They organized airport pick up for us. Even though our flight was over an hour late due to a sandstorm the driver was waiting and he was friendly. Breakfast was great, served in a room with a view. On our last day our flight didn't leave until 11pm. The hotel stored our luggage and when we returned to pick it up we could, for a small fee, use the shower to freshen up before the flight. We also ordered dinner on our last night and it was delicious! We would definitely stay here again.

Says the price on trip advisor is 52$ this was not the case. We booked in advance a double bed and when we arrived they said to push two twin beds together for 80$. This did not sit well. The building is terrible and the owner was not nice at all. The rooms looked like a hostel. We asked them to phone the Canadian hostel down the street and they charged us 10EL for a 1 min call. We ended up finding many other choices that were much cheaper and way better quality closer to the square. Just cause it is the lonely planet pick does not make it worth staying there.

Excellent value for money. Clean rooms and bathrooms...and warm and friendly hosts.
The breakfast was excellent...with loads of options for vegeratians. The location is the biggest advantage.....5 min walking distance from Tahrir square and the museum.

I did not like the building which housed the hotel ..however...the hotel is excellent and a great place to spend a few night if you do not want to blow up money on the four or five star hotels!

I was completely satisfied with the hotel services of the Osiris. We had arranged by email to be met at the airport, and this happened without a hitch, and we were transported to a room which was charming and clean, with comfortable beds. Our room was serviced daily, and well, and breakfast was excellent.
Nabil was a friendly and helpful host, who even helped us to organise our trip through the rest of Egypt, making it easier than I would have believed possible, as I had been to Egypt twice before. Great value and a better quality experience than we could have organised ourselves.

Very good hotel in an excellent location. You will get a nice room, a good breakfast, a nice view of Cairo from the terrace on the roof and a very convenient location close to restaurants, shops, the Egyptian museum and the subway.
