10/10 Exceptional

On the first night, I was assigned a small room with no windows. I asked for a different room. The next day, a bigger room with a window became available and was given to me for the following nine days. I loved the room and the fact it was on two pedestrian streets. So, there was no traffic noise. It’s a great location.

6/10 Good

The staff was friendly. The breakfast was very modest, but probably they have such standards. They do not have a dining area so I had to have my breakfast in the room. The room was dark, I had to turn on the lights even in the morning. The location is good - 10 minutes walking to Tahrir square.

The hotel is extremely bad, don't waste your money there. The rooms very all dirty and there were ants walking on the beds!! The Air Conditioner stopped working for two nights and the bathroom floated the room with water! The treatment of the owner was very disrespectful along with the staff. Please save your time money and time and don't book at grand cairo hotel if you want to enjoy your stay!

8/10 Very good

A good choice!
The hotel has seen its glory days in the 1920s. The condition of the rooms varies a lot. We saw some from nice and ok and really price savvy, and quite the opposite. Nevertheless, the normal price ca 15 $/person is a worthy consideration. The state of the bathrooms and toilets is usually the issues. We stayed three nights at the hotel and the rooms were not cleaned once. But, considering the short stay, it wasn’t a problem. The breakfast was also ok, considering the price, and there were no issues with hygiene or no stomac problems. Amazingly, the hotel offered real bed clothing and duvets and clean great, thick cotton towels, which you do not get even in all better hotels. The staff speaks English and was always very helpful, which was a great asset. Even the air port suttle offered worked for us without any difficulties. The rating, 3.5 stars, is of course massively debatable. I would say 2 stars. Nevertheless, the location of the hotel in Cairo is superb, which adds to its overall value as a good budget hotel.
