I have stayed here many times, I visit Cairo every few months all year and mostly head to El Hussain.
THe rooms are VERY basic, some cleaner than others. Often with Fridge, some A/C. Bathrooms functional.
BUT, the staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful. Food excellent and location vibrant...as long as you dont need to sleep early to be somewhere important.
If you need to be up early ensure the 2 mosques either side with give you a tuneful wake up call ;-)
Cheap, very chearfull and my fav'.

I have been back to this hotel on 3 occassions and will be ensureing I will be staying there again next year when I go back to Egypt. It is so friendly and what a place to stay and see every day life instead of the sterile atmosphere where the larger hotels are

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this hotel and love it each time. They make you feel so welcome and I highly recommend it. Although the rooms are rough and ready the atmosphere is brilliant

Top Local Tips for Cairo

Shop till you drop Moustapha's T-shirt and gallabeia right around the corner, Ask for Maged, you'll get the best prices in the bazaar..A lot of the different embassies and their employees shop here. Gouzlan for cartouches and other small jewelry. Ask for Mamdouh and you'll get the best prices, I've shopped there since 1975 and have been happy with every purchase made there. Stop for lunch at the Khan Khalili restaurant right across from Gouzlan...the best food in the bazaar.
