Reviewed 27 December 2012

We stayed here for one night before as it was the pick up point for our tour. After reading so many negative reviews we decided after our tour we would stay somewhere else. What a mistake to not stay here the whole time! This hotel had awesome points as well as some bad points. The first room we had was huge, aircon was good and the bathroom was stunning! However the second day the water decided to not come out which was frustrating. The last night of our tour was an included stay here and they upgraded us to an amazing double room. It was HUGE! Big bedroom, bathroom, seperate room with couches and tables to sit around and a balcony. The aircon did not work but after mentioning it to them they got it fixed. Although I did not feel 100% safe if I was to go walking at night by myself it was not to bad, especially not as bad as Cairo city centre. 24 hour shop within 5 min walking distance. Awesome shisha bar on the street behind with amazing food. The staff were also quite friendly and helpful. It was such a shame to leave and go to a better rated hotel in central Cairo which turned out to be absolute rubbish!!

Stayed at the end of November 2012.Indiana hotel is located not on a busy street however is only seconds walk to the main Nile street, and many restaurants and a big supermarket is just few minuets away which is great, Moreover, the Most Important thing that the area is very quiet and safe at night which is an Excellent thing.

Also, a big plus is that Free Wi-Fi is available at the lobby you just have to get the Password at the reception

The room is large, clean and obviously it is recently renovated,and I noticed also that the hotel is undergoing refurbishments in other areas and rooms which is certainly a positive point.

Breakfast is fine, nothing special but certainly good enough to keep you going for the day. Staff is friendly and helpful.

All in all it was Really Good experience, and I recommend it!

Myself and my girlfriend booked this hotel with STA travel, they told us it was central and had a roof terris, it's what they didn't tell us that was the propblem.

The minute we turned into the street the Indiana Hotel is on we knew there was a big problem, the place looked like a war zone, it's basically in the middle of a ghetto, the local atompher is very ominous.

We got the the entrance of the hotel and things got even worst, you have a bunch of scruffy blasé men hanging at the door, were they attendents or opportunists? Turned out they were both (one of them offered to get us a cab only to totally rip us).

Anyway, reception was blasé and seemed to despise us, the place was dark, dingy, musty and just uncared for, we got a sense that no one was managing the place with any conviction. When we got the room it was disgusting, it had not seen a paint job since the 70's, the sheets where musty, in terms of health and safety forget it, wires were sticking out of virtually every place they could.

We booked a double room and were taken to a twin room, when I mentions this to reception the woman at the dest just about looked at me and said in a blasé tone "that's all we have" not even "Sorry, that's all we have", the general attitude shocked me, I mean, we just got there and this was the impression they chose to give!

We though we'd go to the roof terrace to see what it was like, chill out with some Shisha calm down a bit, I mean, we're generally cool people and far from been snobs, maybe we could bare it for a few nights. We asked for the where abouts and was lead my this blasé man, we got to the top floor and was lead to this locked old rusty gate, I mean, this door creaked like something from a horror film. The shock when we looked around, it was decrepit, thick dust everywhere the view was horrible just shocking, it clearly handing been cleaned for years, even used for years.

The first impression was so bad we dicided we wouldn't even stay a night and walked out, booked into The Pyrimisa just minutes away, no that was more like it!

The Indiana Hotel is not fit for human inhabitance, enter at your own risk!

Dear Guest,

First of all I thank all the reviewers for taking the time to write a review about Indiana Hotel at tripadvisor.

Second of all, writing a review after One Year do not reflect the present situation of the hotel, moreover describing the location area of the Hotel as a “War Zone ” putting in mind that The other Hotel mentioned in this review is at the same area is really something strange. Certainly I do respect all the views but how can this happen, how the same area be good for a hotel and a “War Zone” for another hotel!!!!

Moreover, Concerning accusing Egyptians as “Scruffy, ominous, attendents and opportunists “ reflects a “Hate Language” and I Certainly Do not agree about that

Second, I really respect you reviewer but is describing Indiana hotel as “not fit for human inhabitance” can be part from a constructive review , please read the previous recent reviews about Indiana Hotel most of them recommended Indiana Hotel to other guests as they had really enjoyed their stay at the hotel.

Last of all, a lot of renovations had been made this year and is still in the process at Indiana so an old review can not reflect the real situation now at Indiana Hotel and please note that all guests’ comments have been put into our consideration for improvement and we work hard to reach a complete Satisfaction from all guests

Pertaining to the other comments, please rest assured that we take all the necessary measures to identify means of development and improvement to elevate the hotel facilities.

We are committed to providing you with the highest level of service simply because our guests deserve the very best.

We look forward to have the pleasure of seeing you once again where you would experience and touch the value of progression in Indiana Hotel Soon.

I arrived early after a transatlantic flight. The reception staff invited me to wait in the lobby and gave me a cup of tea while waiting for a room to be ready. My luggage had been mislaid by the airline and again reception went to no end of trouble to track it down. When it arrived it was delivered to my room. Thanks to the wonderful staff. My room was Large and modern with great Comfortable bed I really had good sleep and the Bathroom also very clean . A good breakfast with variety was included. The Hotel is a short walk from the Nile and very near to Egyptian Museum, and downtown so the location was excellent. I would definitely stay here again if in Egypt.

I had Spent 4 nights at The Indiana Hotel towards the end of August. The Moment we arrived to the hotel Staff were immediately welcoming and gave us great recommendations for finding our way around and were really very friendly and helpful during all our stay.

Giza area is a very busy and very Crowded. However Indiana hotel is a haven of tranquility, very quiet and we enjoyed excellent night’s sleep. The bathroom was spacious with a shower over a bath and quality toiletries.

We had a deluxe room, which was clean and very nicely decorated and included a sitting area, and was spacious. We also enjoyed the buffet breakfast.

The hotel is located in a very convenient neighborhood 1 min from the Nile and 10 from Downtown (which is great!). Moreover a few embassies and consulates is located in this neighborhood, so it is secure area and the streets are very safe.

Overall, a very nice experience. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Deluxe room has plenty of space.

Chose Indiana hotel based on location and reviews and the price was right for us as they are offering promotional rates. We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and it was perfect for what we intended: explore the city by day and have a good restful night.
Check in was fast, friendly and courteous and it was lovely to be greeted so warmly by the staff each time we passed reception. Loved the clean, simple design of the room and only small complaint was pillows were hard. would definitely stay here again.
