Memorable stay
Friendly staff and located at a very strategic locations such airport, dinings etc
Although the access road is quiet narrow but then I realised that it is almost the same in other areas. The room is a bit small but, on overall, it was good.

good business hotel
the beds are comfortable, the location is near airport, quiet area no noise at night
i have stayed numerouas times at the karvin as it is a good location if one has to catch a mornoing flight. the neighborhood is quiet and so one can get a goods night rest before traveling. the one drawback is that they charge for internet use either for 1 hour or you need to buy 6 hours nothing in between. but with the availability of internet today the service should be free. it is just a way to get more money for the room. the TV has a wide selection of stations in various languages.

Economy option in Heliopolis
Competitive Rates, Adequate Meals
Advantages: economical compared to other Heliopolis hotels, pleasant staff, adequate breakfast, relatively quiet, cable TV with multiple channels. Disadvantages: unknown location to taxi drivers; mold in shower tiles; WIFI charges at half hour, /hour, /day; water heater was not working first day but was fixed quickly. Would stay again if traveling solo, but not as a couple.

Convenient to airport and on the way to town
Close to shots
I enjoyed my stay here! I should have read the website more carefully that the airport transfer is an extra fee (much more expensive than a taxi), but it was a nice touch to see someone with my name printed on a board waiting for me after picking up my bags. Stayed for one night, slept well and walked around the area seeing several cafes, ATMs and restaurants. Having two restaurants within the hotel itself (one Chinese, one Indian - open from 2PM on) was a nice touch and convenient.

Good location
Good location and safe
The hotel is not new one, the room is a little small and smell. The only thing I like is the location is close to the airport and during my living it's safe. Anyway, if you're going to Egypt for travelling, then it may be a good option. But if I'm going there for business, it may not be a good option.

small and pleasant hotel
refurbished rooms
the hotel has been refurbished since the last time i was there which was some years ago. the hotel is on a quiet street not far from the airport. it caters to business people many from india as the hotel owners are originally indian. hotel is clean and hs good air conditioning and also good matteres. it has internet in the rooms but one has to pay for it which today is a draw back as most hotels offer it for free. breakfast is adequate but not fancy. hotel is close to restaurants in the area and also has 3 different restaurants on the premisis.

Great location in Cairo, basic accomodation
Good paid wi-fi in rooms. Laundry, room-cleaning, breakfast ppl & reception are great too for a 3star hotel.
We chose to stay in the safer, quieter Heliopolis area as advised by our egyptian friend. This hotel was the most affordable. Old & rustic, yet somehow clean & charming enough for a simple stay overnight. while u explore the city during the day. We were given twin beds though booked for double-bed on agoda. We paid for wi-fi in our room, the best wi-fi reception in egypt that we got. All through our travelling to hurghada, luxor & aswan hotels. This Karvin hotel cairo was most convenient to use wi-fi, so we remembered to appreciate this. The room-cleaning cleaned well. Breakfast service was friendly & uplifting. The cons is the old-ish rooms, but that's the best our money got for such a good price in cairo.
