Cheap but not really very cheerful

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

On first impressions, the President looks quite fancy. The lobby is clean and presented well (though smokey) and the reception desk seems rather grand. The cake shop on entrance has some wonderful looking cakes and desserts and the staff are friendly and welcoming.

If you're on a budget then this is a pretty good hotel to stay at. Plus the breakfast is okay and the location is really nice.

However, the rooms are pretty grim - ours was dark, small and overlooked a load of satellite dishes and grime (you couldn't have the window open). Plus, the lifts are awful.

All in all it's okay but very basic. There was a TV in the room and the bathroom was clean and quite spacious. But ours wasn't a room you'd want to spend much time in really.

Unique Quality: There is a colony of cats hanging about outside up the road which we liked to feed each day!

Location is good - nice shops around and an excellent restaurant next door.

Directions: Zamalek

Zamalek was the reason why I chose this hotel.
Our room was at the last floor of the building, which offered wonderful view over the Nile.
The bathroom was clean and so was the room. The staff from the reception were very helpful and kind. Nothing fancy but decent. The floor was a bit shaby at the last floor and they could have aired the room before our arrival.
The peculiarity of our stay there was the noise made by the kids in the schools nearby.
But what sound is more beautiful then the crystal sound of children laughing?

Needless to say that here, as in any other place in Egypt, if the booking is made by a person from an Arabic country, the fares are a lot lower.

Directions: Zamalek, on a side street (10 min walk) from 26th of July Street.

Not the best but central in Zamalek

It is not the best hotel in the world, and the breakfast, although large and varied, doesn't have good service... it is very conveniently placed in zamalek in a safe area... and a walking distance from good restaurants...

Go there if the Longchamp is full!

2 star Hotel in Zamalek

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)

This hotel was more expensive than my tiny budget normally would allow but I wanted to rest in a comfortable hotel for a few days. Very nice reception and friendly staff when I was checking in. The rooms are located in the top floors with a great view of the Nile and the Zamalek area, the most quite area in Cairo, near some green parks. Remember to ask for a room with a balcony if you want the view. (price is the same) .
Soft beds and bathroom was fine , satellite tv, so really nothing to complain about except one thing. The cold tap water disappeared after a few hours and never came back..... but this was because of a water leak that happened in the area that weekend. So the hotel could not be blamed for this.
Breakfast was good , they served both continental and egyptian food.

Unique Quality: The great view of Zamalek and the Nile from rooms with balcony 13/14th floor .

Directions: Zamalek Island
