Hotel is located in the center of Cairo. Near to all hotspots or interest places for tourists and Egyptians from outside of the capital. It is relatively very cheap. Rooms and Food quality are nothing fancy, yet, very clean. Pool is just a bonus, its located on the roof (10th floor) with a good view on Ramsis square (can enjoy some sun and maybe tan). The hotel doesn't look fancy from the outside or the inside, but is sure practical...

It is a 3 star hotel. If you are not looking for a fancy stay "in", but getting the most out of your stay in Cairo with low budget; this is what you are looking for. It's location is awsome! just minutes away from all our visits in cairo! The pool is also nice, nothing fancy like i said but it has privacy and great view... Rooms are clean but not enjoyable, just go back at the end of the day, have a swim and sleep.

I had the misfortune to be recommended this hotel when staying a few days in Cairo. Firstly, we have no idea HOW this hotel gained 3 stars, it probably bought them on the black market. My advice to anyone travelling anywhere is that you should always check out rooms before booking them. We only stayed in Cairo one night during our trip to Egypt, and were recommended this hotel by the staff of the Philippe hotel in Luxor (a really nice and clean hotel), who seem to be sadly misinformed. When we arrived there, we found the hotel lobby is situated in a dingy street, and the rooms aren't much better. It fulfills the criteria of what you would call a bedsit. The bathrooms were dirty and everything was cramped. After viewing the rooms, we chose not to stay there.
