    Great location and friendly staff :)”

    I stayed here 5 nights and it was good value for money! * The hotel has a boutique style charm - it’s basic but very comfortable. * My room was spacious and clean - I would recommend a room with a balcony. * Location is great - 5 min walk to the museum, 10 min walk to the Nile. * Staff are very friendly and accommodating - they helped me organise all my tours over email before arriving and checked up regularly during my stay to ensure I was happy with everything. * Airport pick-up & drop-off was well organised * My tour guide (Abdul) & driver (Kereoles) were the BEST - they made my time in Cairo very enjoyable :) THANK YOU! * Prices for room, airport transfers & tours were reasonably priced. * Check-in and check-out was simple and easy If you’re only in Cairo for a few days, spending most of those days out and about, and all you need is a place to sleep and shower...I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again. Thank you for a great stay! :)

    Great location, very helpful staff, excellent value! ”

    This place was very good value for money. We had excellent service from all staff, especially Omar who organised a day trip for us and was always willing to go above and beyond. The room was clean and well sized, with a balcony which was great, however our private bathroom was across the hall - which is not an issue as it was a great big bathroom, just we didn’t realise it was separate. Would definitely recommend and stay here again!

    I was booked this hotel long time ago .When we was arriving midnight 2:30 am , the reception staff ask to wait and he take a long time to click his laptop and after that he asked to us to go to another hotel just 2 min walk. We was so tired and disappointed that time. So bad hotel and Agoda should not accept us booking if hotel not available.

    Friendly staff and best location”

    I usually stay in Zamalek for business purpose, but this hotel is in the best location for sightseeing and moving around Cairo, especially by public transportation. The building was old but facility is okay. Staff are all friendly so you feel rather safe than to stay in a bigger hotel. Value for money.

    If you are looking to go to Egypt museum, not far from there. The place is cover with police all over the city as it is safe to travel on the street,. You call can call uber to travel any part of the area for shopping or others . Food is easily to get as many USA fast food restaurant is around, they have their own local fast food as well. Overall had a great stay at this hotel

    Location, staff, cleanliness

    When you arrive here at the street, you really think you have made a mistake, but you haven't. It's a great place, nice staff, passable breakfast. Please don't buy any of their tours - freakishly overpriced, and that goes for all of Cairo's hotels btw. Big rooms, en-suite bathroom, window to Midan Tahlatt Harb and well the bed really sucked, but whatever :)

    Awesome location in Downtown Cairo, an old world charm with modern amenities,real value for money ”

    Stayed in Royal Triple Room for 3 nights while holidaying at Cairo. Located on 6th floor in a Heritage building built in 1930. Reception is right across the elevators & you are taken back in time with the ambiance at this old world charm as soon as you enter. However, the rooms are spacious with wide windows opening to the busy Talaat Herb Square , with all modern amenities like AC, wall mounted LCD with lots of Channels, comfortable beds & clean linen, wardrobe, microwave, safe, 24 Hrs steaming hot shower/tub with toiletries. Kitchen access offered. Location is awesome. Famous food outlets for Egyptian cuisine are very close by- Kazaz, Felfela, Ritchi etc. Lots of travel agents also close by to book local tours at reasonable rates. Strongly recommended for a comfortable stay in Cairo.Few negatives about this property to remember while choosing this hotel : 1: Old rickety elevators 2: Very small bath tub 3: No crockery for Microwave given. 4: Hotels Travel Desk too expensive.

    Bad experience”

    We arrived very early in the morning and left the luggages at the reception. After walking around and came back for checking in, lady staff told us that the room is not big enough for our group even though we successfully be able to book 2 rooms, triple room & double room from Agoda and paid already. She moved us to Cairo Inn where is smaller room, lower floor and of course cheaper than this hotel without any permission asking from us. Don’t talk about new hotel, Cairo Inn where we moved to, the room was smell of cigarettes. So awful and disappointed

    Fraudulent staff and substandard hotel”

    The staff are nothing short of cheats. I had booked a Royal Double room through Agoda and it was paid for by credit card. When I reached the hotel the manager informed me that apparently there has been some sort of mistake and I have actually booked a tiny room not much larger than a shoebox. I was shocked - I have been booking through Agoda for years and never have I faced a situation like this. They offered to show me around the other two available rooms before I made a decision. Upon seeing one of the rooms I realised it's actually the same room which I had seen photos of on Agoda while booking. I had paid for it too. But they said I will have to pay extra $15 per night if I wanted to take that room or stay in the small room which I know I did not book through Agoda. I refused to pay any additional charges for a room I have already paid for! So I stayed in the small room. This was shocking level of dishonesty. It felt like they do this often with gullible customers and make them p

    Great Stay for The price with friendly staff ”

    First and Foremost Egypt is beautiful, the people are nothing short of amazing from their hospitality to their need to help your enjoy stay. I stayed at the Grand Royal hotel and they did nothing but help me discover this wonderful place. From the helpful manager of the hotel who helped organize the trips to Giza to see the pyramids and the Sphinx , Luxor to see all the temples from Karnak to Valley of the Kings, accommodating events from the Nile River cruise. They truly know how to fulfill your every need. As soon as I got to the hotel I was offered drinks and was given an upgrade to a beautiful room that overlooked the busy square below. It was a breathtaking view of the hustle and bustle of the city. All in all it was well worth the stay for the price and I would recommend anyone stay here for the price and the experience they provide and offer you.

    Accommodating and Nice Staff. Clean Room. Good Consistent WIFI 👍🏼”

    The hotel is located inside a big building in the Talaat Harb Square. Look for the blue sign ground level that says the hotel name. Have to take elevator up to sixth floor and your right in it. Location is great! Friendly staff from the start and nice clean room with comfortable bed. If your room is close to main seating area you will be woken up by breakfast being served to other guests in the morning. Not an issue for us as we were already awake! The bathroom was clean but the shower and bath were small. No shower curtain and the shower head was in odd place for showering. But always had hot water! Staff organized an amazing day tour of the pyramid and surrounding area and was very affordable at $70 for two people. Request the guide Mido for an unforgettable experience! Breakfast was good and filling (continental)but options of scrambled eggs, oatmeal or cereal would be nice options to have. Overall great stay and would definitely come back to stay again!

    The location was great and it was easy to find. The place was very nice, old world charm. They have friendly staff although there was some language barrier issue they tried their best to assist us. In the mornings, it can get crowded so its best to order breakfast as early as you can. It starts at 7:30 and we were there already but only got breakfast at 8am which was exact time of our tourguide pick up. So we had to eat very quickly.

    It was best choice as I was looking for great location from where I could go anywhere as well as there was good staff and clean room. 3 Wifi connections. Good receptions. No issues if you are solo traveler, if you are with friends or family only washroom inside the room have no roof and with glass walls. Its only issue I think if you are more people in one room. rest is good. cheers.

    First of all they gave me a normal room although I booked a suite!! They insisted it was a suite!! The bed was full of insects, and the staff was very rude. No phone in tbe room, no bathtub although it is said to have one, actually the bathroom is a small compartment inside the room. I totally cannot understand how it so overrated unless the good reviews were created by the hotel itself!! Not recommended even for free!!

Staff helps you out of the way to make you comfortable. In house laundry and ironing facility is another plus. The only minus point I could find is the fix menu for breakfast otherwise all pluses.
