Clean and well maintained

The cleanliness and maintenance of this property are both considered to be of a high standard. Although a budget-friendly spot, a great deal of care appears to go into keeping the property looking its best. This includes the shared bathrooms.

Negative Reviews

Street noise

Perhaps unsurprisingly, guests find downtown Cairo is rather noisy. Unfortunately, the street noise can often be heard in the rooms – resulting in some disappointment for those hoping for an undisturbed sleep.

Light breakfast

Guests report that breakfast here would benefit from an upgrade. Although complimentary, options are limited and there are no grab and go choices for guests who need to be on their way early. These guests can feel cheated out of an included part of their stay.
