if you are planning to go to cairo on a low budget,then i can recommend this hotel. They have everything you need,and if they do not, they will get it for you. Its near all the important actractions, gizeh,cairo tower,egyptian museum... They have a good internet connection and in the same street there is a internet shop for very low price (8 egyptian pounds/hour. Dont expect 5 star quality,but it is besides the very friendly and helpfull staff,a good place to explore cairo. Enjoy your trip!
Disgusting, terrible service, nothing works

The only good thing was the location. The phones didn't even work and the place was filthy and unfriendly.

Top Local Tips for Cairo

Material possessions Be careful with your material possessions because if you loose something don’t expect to get it back. Tourist Police (or should I say the system they have follow is overly complicated).

Don't pay taxis first price The Taxi drivers start at huge prices and often come down to one tenth the original price when you let them know you know the prices. 50 Egyptian pounds to the airport from here.

Rugs in Khan el-Khalili If you are only in Cairo and aren't stopping in Dubai, head to the rug shop in Khan el-Khalili. This place is a maze but generally, head the the Mosque of Al-Hussein (there's a sort of Square and Cafe's out the front). Facing the Mosque, head left and left again into Khan el-Khalili. Not far down is a rug store (it's big). Beautiful rugs including silk. I was eying off a 4x6ft one for 4500 EGP - my biggest regret was not buying it! For things like stones and jewellery, head to Aswan and for souvenirs, Luxor as they are much cheaper.
