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.
