Hotel Grand Royal

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Excellent location...2nd time to use it. If you only need a comfy bed and a shower. I don't need amenities so it was the perfect place for me. Great price. Very nice staff. Go for it

So here is why I had a not so good experience -bugs and cocroaches keeps coming, not only on the floor but also on the bed. The staff tried to solve this by anti bugs spray, which was useless,and even worse it made me cough all night because of it's strong odor. -my devices couldn't connect to WiFi network, and when I complained about it, the guy in charge told me that it's because my devices are not compatible with their network (such a stupid answer) -the pictures of the rooms are deceiving.

Breakfast is NOT a buffet. I'm not sure what to call it..maybe "Egyptian Continental"..meaning you get 1 plate of ?, and anything extra like another cup of coffee you have to pay more. Location is fantastic! Right smack in Talat Harb. Very convenient! Staff is friendly :)

Everything start when you put your feet in the entry ( there is not lobby). I was so scared, everything is dirty, broke and with bad smell. The elevator is not finished, it does not have wall, only paper and dust. Then in the sixth floor, one person told me that they do not have the room that I booked, so I was moved to a cheaper hotel. After 4 nights they decided to move us again. When I came back to the hotel to complain about that, we were trapped in the elevator. the elevator is dangerous, really old and it is not working well. After some time, we can get off of the elevator, so we used the stair, where we found urine and excrement. Really, this hotel ruins my vacations, I totally suggest do not book this hotel.

just what I needed. Staff courteous and efficient. I applied for extended VISA, management was quite knowledgeable and helpful. They wrote notes for me show vendors, and taxis to bridge the communication gap. I don't speak Arabic. The notes worked. dined at local eateries. good food.

The hotel is a bit modest by Western standards but is still very clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly and eager to help. Overall the hotel has the feeling of a small boutique hotel rather than a chain hotel, which makes the experience better.

I had a wonderful time there. My safety and comfort were their number one priority. The staff were very up to date with my transportation and tours.

the hotel pictures are very misleading, hotel amenities is so poor, for example there was no shampoo, no hair dryer, no Tv in the room, so If there is no shampoo in the room, how you could give 3 starts to such hotel??

Very bad hotel, no shampoo, hair dryer, phone INR TV IN THE ROOM. I don't how they claim it is 3 stars hotel, very distributing view from the balcony.

while the staff and owner are friendly and good people, its tough to call this a hotel...its more like a hostel without the shared rooms. amenities are scant and the quality of the beds are substandard and uncomfortable..feels more like a box frame than an actual mattress. i know this is not a 5 star hotel but i was expecting more for the price per night. wifi is shoddy at best and needed to be fixed numerous times. if youre looking for a low cost place to stay for a night or two in downtown cairo this place is reasonable...definitely not for a weekend with family however
