Positive Reviews

Kind and helpful staff

Guests are usually really pleased with the service they receive at the hotel. The staff members are frequently applauded for their nice and helpful approach.

Useful location in Zamalek

For those that want to stay in Cairo's Zamalek district, the location of the hotel typically scores a thumbs up. The property is a comfortable walk from numerous stores and eateries, and the city's central attractions are also relatively close.

Affordable pick for the area

With Zamalek being amongst the most affluent areas in Cairo, there's apparently a limited amount of accommodation options available for those on a budget. However, guests note that this particular hotel is one of the most reasonably priced options offered in the district.

Negative Reviews

Basic and showing its age

The reportedly basic and tired nature of the accommodation is upsetting for numerous visitors. Whilst renovations have supposedly taken place, the property is still showing its age in areas – such as the lift and air conditioning units. Moreover, the lack of in-room amenities and public facilities receives negative feedback.

Substandard Wi-Fi range

Guests are usually disparaging about the Wi-Fi facility offered by the hotel. The range of the Wi-Fi is especially judged in a negative light, with it apparently not accessible within rooms on the higher floors.

Breakfast a disappointment

Despite typically being included in the room rate, the breakfast is often criticised by travellers. The most common negative comment aimed at the breakfast relates to the selection served, which is said to be restricted with limited choice available.
