Hostel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 13, 2008

The Sun boasts one of the cheaper dorm rooms downtown. Breakfast is included, and it's pretty clean. The staff was accommodating and friendly. The location is very centralized.
I guess I don't have any complaints about this place, but I wasn't thrilled either. It's cheap, but not the best place to socialize, and the building itself seemed a little creepy to me. Not sure why, it's just in a weird location.

New Sun Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 16, 2005

Not quite as good as Ismailia but still a decent backup is the New Sun Hotel. This is still central to all the major sites and the bus to the airport. The thing that I found inconvienient was that some of the lights didn't work in the washrooms.

Directions: Take the metro to Sadat Station to the Midan Tahrir. The place is the first building as you go down Talaat Harb.

Handy to Egyptian Museum

This hotel is right in Tahir Square and is close to everything, like the museum, the Metro, Eateries etc.

Unique Quality: With views from the roof you can see quite a bit of Cairo.

Directions: Although their card says Eltahirir SQ., it's actually right at the edge of Tahir SQ.

Cheap but trustworthy hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

The Sun Hotel is a budget hotel which is situated in Central Cairo. A great place for backpackers as it is very cheap......about US$6 a night from memory. The staff here are really friendly and helpful and will organise trips for you both around Cairo and around Egypt.....we took a great trip South and travelled up the Nile in a felucca.....it was a wonderful experience and very affordable. The rooms are very basic and the facilities are shared. A very simple breakfast of rolls and tea is included in the price of the room. There is internet available and you can store bags there if you need to.
