      I didn't expect this hotel to be really clean, excellent location & with so accommodating staff, especially Omar Othman at the front desk, who did his best to get me a well-decorated room with a fancy view to the main street. I will come back to the same place again when I visit Cairo. My stay with really great.

    • 2.0.Poor

      Dirty, bed bugs

      The photos of this hotel are either old or a different room than we were in. We stayed in a private room with private bathroom. The bathroom smelled terrible, toilet unclean, and the tiny shower curtain was filthy. The curtain didn't cover the shower so water sprayed everywhere and turned the bathroom into a pool. There was nowhere to hang the toilet paper so it was always soggy. Finally, we awoke the second morning covered in bed bug bites. That was the final straw and we decided to check out early and forfeit our final 3 nights. When we checked out the front desk asked why, we said because of bed bugs, and he just said "ok." Maybe he didn't understand. Do not recommend staying here.

      メトロの駅から10分くらい歩きます。周りに飲食店も多く、便利で賑やかな立地です。建物が大きいからか、私の部屋は外の音はほとんど聞こえず、静かでした。廊下の音は響きますが。 設備は古いですが、広々としていて良かったです。 Wi-Fiも速いし、レセプションが24時間開いているので、朝食を早めに頼んだりできて、助かりました。
