Positive Reviews

Easily accessible central location

The big plus of this accommodation is where it is situated - in the heart of Cairo overlooking the river Nile. Guests are often amazed to find such great views of the river from within the hotel's common room and to be within minutes of the centre of Cairo and the Egyptian Museum too. They claim that there are lots of restaurants nearby and access is simple with the metro, bus station and railway station within easy reach.

Awesome customer service

Any apprehensions guests may have are quickly allayed by the exceptionally friendly nature of the staff. They are soon made to feel safe and like old friends, with any concerns they may have addressed straight away. The personnel are free in offering advice, helping with arrangements and booking tickets.

Excellent value accommodation

Guests are satisfied with the value that this accommodation offers. The place is kept clean and the beds are comfortable with essential air conditioning included. A decent enough breakfast is also offered, which is well appreciated, as well as relatively fast Wi-Fi.

Negative Reviews

Bookings not always guaranteed

Travellers thinking they have secured their accommodation have been informed, often just a matter of days before their arrival, that their bookings have been cancelled. They are not even given any explanation and have to rapidly find an alternate place to stay.

Surrounding environment not great

Guests point out that the accommodation's surroundings are not the most pleasant. The area is quite dirty and can be pretty noisy.
