    A nice affordable hotel in a good location”

    It was a pleasant hotel to stay at with easy access to the city centre while far enough to not have to deal with the mad traffic situation. It was also a really good spot to be able to access the Egyptian Museum and to see the city from. Really nice roof top restaurant with an excellent view of the Nile and the city.

    Nile view - Nile noise”

    Nice Voew of the Nile, good food menu, proximity to a metro station

    I like the proximity to the opera metro and walkable distance to the Egyptian museum. My Nile view room did have a great view, but be aware of those barges along the river that function as a cheap disco and they pumped out unbearably loud local dance hits till 3-4 am at the weekend (Thursday/Friday nights)

    Excellent place to stay in a great location.”

    The hotel sits over the Nile in walking distance of Tahrir Square and the Cairo Museum ... a really central location.

    This was the final couple of nights after a wonderful trip to Aswan and Luxor and was a fitting finish. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room fine and the rooftop 'bar' (alcohol free)was a magic spot to sit and let all the noise of the city to wash over one. Excellent!

    Close proximity to river nile”

    When we booked the room it was for two single beds at the time of booking but we were disappointed that the hotel did not provide . The room is too small to add an additional bed. There is no shower partition and the bathroom is outdated. The only reason I would stay at this hotel is the close proximity to centre attractions other than that not a value for money

    Good location”

    Paid $138 USD per night after taxes, which I think is steep for what you get. Notes: 1) Free upgrade to the junior suite with two bathrooms was nice! 2) ATM/money exchange in the lobby was out of order our entire stay 3) You'll want to wipe each surface with a Clorox wipe before touching them 4) Really enjoyed the location in Zamalek even though a taxi seemed necessary to get anywhere of interest 5) Booked a "tour" of Saqqara and Giza for $75 USD, but this is actually just a private driver that takes you to places where he (and possibly the hotel too) will get commission on your purchases. We met our "guide" inside a papyrus shop on our way to Giza after visiting Saqqara. The "guide" gave us 15 minutes of information about the temples - at the end of which we were told she would not be accompanying us. Completely useless. Then we had to endure pressure to buy papyrus and leave a handwritten review of the shop (of the tour?) in a notebook. Skip this!

    Pleasant and comfortable”

    CIty view, clean and comfortable

    It was just a short 2-night stay at this hotel. I love the view and room was really clean. However, free wifi was not provided and I paid close to USD20 for 1-day use of the Internet. The cost is just ridiculous but I needed the WiFi. I do hope they will reflect this accurately on Agoda website. Other than that, staff was helpful and friendly. I was having issues with the Internet and they resolved it within 1 hour. Room and toilet was really clean and comfortable. It was a pleasant stay.

    Nice hotel overlooking the Nile”

    Safe and secure

    We landed during the Tahir riots and upgraded from our original hotel. Novotel is a very safe , clean and sits on the opposite side of Tahir square . We requested a room over looking the Nile, this proved to be more exciting than watching the tv as we witnessed daily charges from the riot police in front of the intercontinental hotel. Rooms are modern ,breakfast is adequate with use of hotel computers in the lobby. One minor criticism is there's no free wi if and the charges for a 24 hour connection are extortionate. I would stay here again as its very convenient.

    clean, safe, helpfull staff, excellent location

    Hotel is close to the Opera metro stop, and right across the entrance to the bridge across the river to Egyptian museum etc. Rooftop restaurant serves pretty good food and the view down on the Nile with the multi-colored restaurant boats as well as across river is nice. Staff is helpful and friendly albeit not very efficient. Only downside may be that there are not any restaurants, internet cafes, shops etc. in the immediate vicinity. The location is excellent however to reach other parts of town as it is close to the subway and on a busy street where taxis abound.

    Location!

    This is a great, very basic hotel. The furniture is spare and the desk looks like it came from an Ikea catalogue. Clever designs though make up for the small-ish rooms. Because they are a bit bare, they don't seem so small. Excellent views. Great location.

    good location, neat and clean, friendly staffs

    It was neat and clean hotel. The room itself is not that big, and the bathroom is also quite small. But it was well-maintained, clean, and neat. Especially, it has a great view in a room and the rooftop cafe. On the rooftop cafe, you can look down the panorama view of Nile. It is very close to Zamalek, walkable distance, 10-15 minutes. (But since there's no proper pedestrian road, it might be better to take a cap.) The staffs were friendly, too.

    Location....perfect position directly on Zamalek Island in the Nile, facing City

    cannot beat the location....but you can certainly better the services ! even though the hotel was only about 25% occupancy the rooms were often not ready to checkin, for me at 1pm and my friend at 4pm. the hotel even did my transfer from cairo airport so they knew exactly what time i was arriving. both my friend and i waited half an hour in the lobby for our rooms. also the hotel is "dry"...no alcohol, very strange for a star rated hotel. no meantion is made of this in their listings...and their brochure in the lobby even promotes their rooftop bar...only to find no beer or wine for that sunset drink ! some reception staff good, one or 2 very blunt, even saying "cannot get your luggage from the room on checkout", even though only 25% occupancy. this hotel needs to smarten up its service to match its great location.

There is a cafe on the rooftop which offer great view of the surrounding and great cool wind at night. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is an ATM machine located at the hotel lobby.

    Price, Location, Room and bathroom size, service
    massage rooms, breakfast quality, lack of sauna and hammam

    Ideal solution for a stay in Cairo. Zamalek is a quieter area( compared to others) I was upgraded to Nile View to accomodate my requests for smoking & king bed. Such a gorgeous view!! For the standards this hotel is much cheaper compared to the neighbouring hotels where for an extra star you have to pay more. Rooms decor is a bit "ikea" for my taste but it's all clean and comfortable. I found incredibly funny the size of the bedside table.. enough room for a lipstick All the hotel workers are extremely nice and friendly! Good quality room service but breakfast quality is a bit low.
