Fantastic location on top floor of building, well above hustle and bustle of streets below.
10 mins walk to egyptian museum and subway.
Reasonable breakfast with good views from breakfast terrace. Top floor terrace also good for lounging, reading.
No internet facilities, but internet place located nearby with fast connection.
Only bugbear: I booked a single room with ensuite well in advance for 5 nights. Spotlessly clean but very small room, hard mattress (the supercomfy ones mentioned in the lonely planet guides must be elsewhere...), windows opened up onto building well with air conditioning units switching on and off all night, head end of bed adjacent to shared shower /toilet facilities which could be a bit noisy at times. I did ask to change after the first night, but unfortunately there were no other rooms available.
In retrospect if travelling alone again I would consider staying there again, but booking a double -they seemed pretty spacious and quieter. Otherwise a good intro to Cairo.
