Nice hotel with the loveliest people”
Friendly owner
The hotel was a little bit hard to find at first, but once we found it, it was easy to find the next time. We had a nice little room. The owner is a very nice guy who gave us many helpful tips. We also had the opportunity to meet his father who shared lots of Nubian history with us. They were also kind enough to share their evening meal with us, and we sat and talked over food and tea for a few hours. That was a wonderful experience.

Depends on who you are”
If you are an experienced world traveler, who is not put off by developing world standards, and not overly fussy, this works fine. I am hesitant to criticise the place much because of the very affordable price, and I felt I got fair value for my money. The photo on Agoda is not anywhere close to what you will get, but I was happy and slept well, and the staff was very nice to me and didn't try to sell me anything.

Are the photos the same hotel?”
Unfortunately, the picture of the fresh white bed and open window has nothing, zero, in common with the room we were given. Our windows opened onto filthy ventilation shafts filled with the trash of 100 years. The sheets and towels were ragged, the mattresses, pillows etc. grubby. The walls needed a clean and/or repaint. Smoke drifted in from reception. The bathroom mirror was attached to the wall with sticky tape. Damp and leaks threatened to bring down the bathroom ceiling. The entry to the hotel was filthy, strewn with litter and in an area that was closed to traffic for security reasons. Shops are nearby, it's possible to walk to the Nile and Egyptian museum. Not far from old Cairo. We had a much better experience staying in Giza. Fine for a cheap 1 night stay ( we were waiting for a train) otherwise, avoid. Wifi was just about OK. We didn't use the bath, it had chips cracks and holes. Breakfast was 1 mug of coffee, 2 bread rolls, 1 cheese triangle and a plastic pot of jam. Staff were sullen. Not the best. Such a shame. If they just cleaned up the entrance way, swept and washed the pavement outside, washed down the walls, tidied up the bed linen and welcomed guests with a little enthusiasm, this place would be fine and have a lot of old world character. I'm a professional traveller and travel blogger, I don't give bad reviews lightly.

Decent budget hotel”
The Hotel Royal is a good choice if you're looking for a budget hotel in downtown Cairo that is central to major attractions. Don't expect luxury and don't look too closely into the corners. Although the general areas are clean, the corners are grime- and dirt-filled. The wifi is slow and erratic. The basic breakfast is ok for one or two mornings. The friendly and helpful staff help make up for the hotel's shortcomings.

an ok hotel”
location, free wifi, clean beds
centrally located the hotel is in a random building staff was a bit pushy with trying to do tours free wifi clean beds clean shower/toilet. however, the toilet/shower wasn't in a separate room. glass separated the bed and toilet, and the ceilings were so high that the glass didnt go to the top, so you are not a solo traveler you will hear EVERYTHING the other person is doing in the toilet. i don't think i would stay here again.

nice to stay but no TV”
location and freindliness...
checking in and out is easy,free airport transfer is good too, but make sure tips to the driver.. easy to get food as there is kfc and mcd nearby if you want hygiene food, if ur stomach can bear not-so-hygiene food, you can try local food... the hotel tour also is good, they can arrange for you in cheap(around 35usd) for transportation, but again, this is tip country.on top of that you have to tip your driver-he even ask for the tip..he will start a good conversation to please you, then before reaching the destination-he will start a conversation about tip given to him before in order to get the tip from you...this is egypt culture-just beware..

good backpacker option in the heart of cairo”
central, friendly staff, cleanish
A nice little budget hotel run by some very friendly guys in a busy low-end cafe district behind the central bank - well positioned if you plan to spend time exploring downtown Cairo. They've made a valiant effort, and the rooms are half decent with a cupboard, wood floors, and a separate glassed-in bathroom cubicle. Poor finishing work, so lots of cracks, broken panels, misaligned doors, etc. Wifi works fine. The usual unsatisfying breakfast (crappy fino bread with jam & cheese triangle, omelet, yogurt, Lipton tea of coffee), served in your room if you like as there is not really a common area. The room came with free airport pickup, and the contracted driver - a very nice chap- was there on time and smiling. Lots of cafe noise at night, plus the incessant motor of a water pump, but the former dies down around 11 and it's quiet in the mornings. Like other budget hotels, the Hotel Royal has struggled due to the tourism slump since 2011. Their sister hotel is busier and priced accordingly.

Great Price, big clean room, high ceilings, big window
They could charge more and it would still be good value. As it is it is amazing value. The room was big, clean, comfortable, AC, big window, high ceilings. The staff were great, helpful and not pushy for their tours and services. Would stay again.

Small modern hotel ”
Great location, reasonable price and simple deco
It's black and white deco brings this small hotel a little bit modern touch. Staff working there are all very nice and friendly. I made reservation online at last minutes, they check me in even before the agora confirmation fax sending to the hotel.( I showed my confirmation for sure) The hotel locate right on a small road with many drinking and food places. We stay there at weekend, a lot people sit on the road for chatting and drinking, showing typical local nightlife in Cairo.

Great Location with very accommodating staff”
Location, Flexibility of Staff
Hotel Royal is location in the Al-Borsa area in Downtown Cairo- it is right at the heart of Coffee and Shisha Cafes, filled nightly with lots of Egyptians from all walks of life- great for people watching and getting to meet locations. That said, be prepared for a less than quiet stay- but you dont really need that if you're here to experience Cairo. The location is great though, 10 min from Tahrir Square, Groppi, and many facilities and shops around the corner!

Gem of a hotel in downtown Cairo”
Excellent location to explore Cairo
This small hotel is in an alleyway. The alley transforms into a tea drinking, sheesa smoking and Sports watching TV in the evenings well past midnight. The friendly noise and commotion does not lend to early night sleeping. Once I adjusted my routine I enjoyed this hotel with its clean rooms and excellent staff.

fantastic budget hotel. the staff are super attentive and will go out of their way to make sure you have a wonderful stay. in addition to great staff, the hotel was located down a street teaming with cafes and life. people hang out at the cafes, playing backgammon and smoking hookah late into the night. it had a wonderful atmosphere. the location was also convenient to several other attractions downtown, including the egyptian museum.

Clean budget hotel with personal service”
Great location, clean spacious room, good breakfast for the price, very friendly and helpful staff
Small hotel in central Cairo - walking distance to all the attractions, staff assisted with good tourist info and tour packages. Staff really went out of their way to accommodate our needs -We were allowed to book in earlier as our flight landed at 05.00am When there was a problem with the lights in our room , they offered us another room. Showers are a bit awkward, as it is not separated from the rest of the bathroom - a bath mat would help! We will recommend this hotel to all our family and friends who consider visiting Cairo!

it could be a good location,unfortunately not easy for the taxi drivers to locate.the quilt is confortable. The clerk is friendly ,but sometimes they are hard selling other travel product. it would be better should they printed all recommendation and list the fixed price of attraction. BTW, it is noisy at night.

downtown cairo, close to metro and restaurants
This is def a hidden gem in downtown cairo. very friendly and helpful staff if you want to know where to eat. They did recommend a good restaurant to us. clean hotel and rooms. please don't let the noise from the street restaurant deter from staying here. Noise does die around 12:00am and it gets super quiet. yes, for some, it might be too late but if you want value for your money and don't mind early noise. Here is absolutely the choice. comfortable bed too. wifi is good and free. didn't buy tour from hotel so not sure if it is expensive but staff were not pushy about it. wish them the best and if quality stays the same, it will be very busy hotel soon. highly recommended.
