Hashim G. Solo travelers Malaysia, January 21, 2012
Great location and worst hotel

Just walking distance to Egytian museum, Nile river, Midan Tahrir and nite market
The airport cab driver not be able to find the hotel,and probably it might their strategy to get extra fees, probably little bit of argument (typical Egyptian), the hotel located at 6th floor of the old building, and make sure door elevator have closed after used, otherwise staircase a other option to the hotel. No proper hotel reception area, probably someone have to wait for another 30 minutes before hotel staff would be able to register your name and give a hotel room. The room quite big, probably because of high ceiling that make room bigger, had 2 single bed and inside bathroom, the room floor not so clean and the toilet too, make sure check the water tap first before accepting a room, specially during winter, I had take a bath from water sink since the old water heater broken and after several time complain nobody come and fixed the water heater, No free breakfast will be serve, even it had charge into the room rate, because nobody will be in the hotel except the security guard, probably you have to make your own tea, and all the culinary place bit dirty , have to wash it before use. Nobody clean the room, and the lobby, toilet, and other common area might look bit dirty, this hotel suitable for either solo or budget travelers, and negotiate the rate seem a better option before decide to staying in this hotel.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Nile river, its good place for watch a sunset and pedestrian while have a cup of Egyptian tea, Egyptian museum just 5 minute walk, and beware of the unwanted people if you decide to go to nite market, the price normally double for foreigner,

As for the rooms, u get nearly get what u paid for

The Lady Fatma is very nice and helpful (and the rest of the staff)
they talk very loud at the reception till all hours and smoke which you can smell coming into your room. the hotel that you book and go to (pharaohs palace hotel) does no longer exist and a guy will be there and walk with you down the street to the city centre hotel. the lift is very temperamental and the hotel is on the 6th floor. wasn't nice walking up and down in that heat now and again. it is cheap for cairo and i would stay again. the room was never made up but there wasn't much to do anyway as it is very small. the wi-fi is fairly fast but also very temperamental.
Hotel Feature Tip: Lots of annoying people outside the hotel.

It's simply the best!

Central location, price, great rooms, service, airport pick-up
pharaohs palace is absolutely the best hotel i have stayed in during my trip around egypt. though it looks and feels like a three-star accomodation due to it's clean and neat rooms, the good service, the central location and the room cleaning, the only difference is the price with a three-star hotel. pharaohs palace is really really cheap for what you get! it is probably the best place for both young backpackers and married couples with children if you want to have a great time in cairo.
