Great Staff, free internet and airport pick up!
Free airport pick up, Good rooms and free speedy internet.
I had a great relaxing time with only few concerns. They were supposed to pick me up from the airport which they say they apparently did but because my plane landed an hour late which overlapped the curfew hours in the airport, the driver left without me. I had to take a taxi for double the ongoing rate. The management was very apologetic and compensated me by giving me a complimentary airport shuttle on my departure.

Great location with lovely rooftop
Great location, 5-10 min walk to Khan Khalili market, lovely rooftop for complimentary breakfast, Friendly staff
arabian nights hostel in islamic cairo area is perfect if you want to avoid downtown midan tahrir area (protests/ demonstrations). the hotel is literally 5-10 walk to the khan khalili market and the al muizz st where you can do a walking tour to see a lot of amazing complexes, mosques. it is also across the street from awesome koshary restaurant! rooftop is lovely to have breakfast. staff are incredibly friendly, made me tea everynight. rooms and bathrooms are alright, not great but functional and value for money.

チェックイン時、ベッドのサイドテーブルに他人の吸殻入りの灰皿があり、不愉快になった。 ハエが多い。シャワーの勢いは最悪(お湯の時)。 ドアの立て付けが悪く開け閉めに毎回苦労した。 価格より高い気がします。 コーランは大音量で聞こえますが、苦にはなりませんでした。 イスラム地区観光の為に泊まるならアリです。
