The hotel was considered a 3 star hotel and wen I arived I saw no stars at all. I was a dump! I ould wear shoes to shower! and you will be harrased by taxis drivers! I just went there and I think is was bad! Its a poor place to stay.
the neighborhood has several 'cleaner' places to eat at but the hotel itself was quite dirty, especially the room. Breakfast consisted of a half boiled egg, old cheese, and tang and on restaurants open before noon - so eat up the night before or
stock up on some non-perishable foods (but don't let the hotel know you have them. Don't buy anything at the hotel there are little shops near by to get what you need at an extremely cheap price but the hotel charges 300% more.
I have been staying in this hotel for a while just because its affordable and comfortable . Stuff and cleaners will not offer help without tips which is annoying some times . Romms are not perfect but not bad too .
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short drive from hotel
Khan el kalili is about 14 to 20 mints of drive ..its the best and nice place to do shopping and eat food ./
I felt safe there, although the mentality of almost all Egyptians dealing with tourists is that they are after your money in so many ways. Everybody expects a tip for doing the most basic things. It is best not to tip at all, if at all, until
the very end of one's stay since the word gets out that you are a tipper. They love to get a taxi for you since this is how they get a commission. They love not giving you your full change back on purchases. But, that's the way Egypt is.
I feel very happy in that hotel the receiption are very kind people to all. What I did not like is the room. It is large room, but the bed iside was not good. It is not good bedroom I have the single one is not good it needs to be replace. Somehow
they should clean some part in room, like air condition was dirty when I open i. It felt my bed with dirty dusty whole night. Plus the phone is broken it can ring but you cannot answer it. When I want to go I can stay their if they offer to me a good bed in my room.
