Every time an Agoda customer checks out of a hotel we send them an email asking them to write a review of their stay. This is the only way reviews can be submitted. Every review must then be approved by our content team before being posted on the Agoda website. Therefore, unlike many other travel sites, ALL Agoda reviews are certified and genuine.

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.
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.

Good Level for an Egypyian Hotel
Acceptable clean. Friendly staff. Conveniently located.
Even that I did reserve a room with private bath a good time ahead (with Agoda guaranteed pay), it was not ready when I came at 5 in the morning and had to get a room without a bath. I got it though for the 2nd night.
Sleeping late, I woke up at 2pm. The hotel Host offered me breakfast. That was a nice friendly surprise. But...
Although I did tell them that I will only stay 2 nights (originally I did reserve a room for 6 nights), They insisted that I should pay for the 6 nights, unless I get a permit from Agoda. It took me some time to get it, but at the end all was well. They accepted a 2 night pay, but not with a smile.
Another issue that was irritating is the Elevator.
The hotel is on the 6th floor, but the elevator goes up only to the 5th. Furthermore, one cannot use the elevator to go down. At my age of 76, I do have some difficulties with stairs, especially on check out, with an heavy suitcase. The hotel did not even offer help to carry my suitcase down.
To give some positive input, I can say that the beds are firm but quite convenient. Also the bathroom functions well, hot and cold water (no bathtub).
If it was not for the elevator, I would consider using the hotel again, as it is very conveniently located in downtown Cairo.
Egyptian museum. Zamalek Island with several attractions. Not far from Khan el Khalil bazzar.

hervorragendes Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis
Toplage, zentraler geht es kaum, in unmittelbarer Umgebung von Geschäften, Restaurants etc., Rooftop Terrasse ueber den Dächern von Cairo- sehr gemuetlich und familiaer, Zimmer sind einfach, aber sauber und ruhig. Tip: eine Sisha auf der Terrasse ! Sehr freundliches Personal, weitere Services wie Ausfluege, Flughafentransfer etc.
