I'll put my hand up early and admit Osiris was my first experience in Egypt after exiting the taxi from the airport. We got fleeced here. We paid USD75/night and really its probably worth nearer USD40-50 max.... and then paid EGP430 each for a guided day trip across Giza, Saqqara and Dashur as arranged by Nabil (owner). No hard feelings, that's Egypt, but go in with your eyes open and never accept the first price. Rooms are clean and air-conditioned, but no frills. Breakfasts are simple but quite good. A highlight is the roof top area which has great views of cairo. Incidentally, I note other comments regarding availability of cold beer. This ended abruptly and without explanation (and no, we weren't loud or disruptive ). I'm sure there's worse out there but better options also. P.S. The lift is not for the faint-hearted or claustrophobic.
