    A nice budget hotel in Cairo!

    by

    We'd only stay in Cairo for one night so basically we just sleept at this lovely budget hotel. We did also try the resturant which was not excellent but of good quality. The bathroom were small and the shower stall were even smaller, making morning rituals somewhat challenging. But if you're travling on a budget and need a safe and nice place to stay I can really recommend this to you!

    Unique Quality: The hotel dates to the 1930s and is a charming example of that era. It's located in downtown Cairo but don't be chocked if you'll woken up by a rooster at 5 o'clock!

    Directions: Downtown Cairo

    I stayed here at the beginning and end of my guided tour of Egypt--about three days total. The rooms were clean and comfortable--although the call to prayer did wake us up early a few mornings. They had a decent breakfast spread in the morning. Internet access and international calls. They were very good about finding us safe taxis as well.

    Nice stay for end of Trip

    by

    After one nite stay in Garden City House Hotel, I moved to Victoria Hotel for another 3 nites. This hotel is more estanlished with nice touch and tasty room decor (see pic). It mainly caters for indivudal travellers and groups which want a better stay in Cairo. Roome rate is US$35 for single and US$41 for double inclusive of breakfast (see pic). I stayed in room no. 305. You need to pay in US$ or EGP together with exchange receipt. This hotel does not have any attached tour agency, so if you want to go for Nile Cruise or other tour arrangement, you need to go to downtown's travel agencies for help.

    Directions: The closest Metro station is either Ramses or Ataba station.

    Good, Clean, and Affordable

    by

    In my Egypt pages I wrote about the Victoria Hotel which we stayed in whilst in Cairo (please refer to this tip for more information).

    This affordable Hotel is an old fashioned styled Hotel that George Bernard Shaw used to frequent when he came to Cairo. Yes it may be a bit older than some of the more up market and upbeat Hotels around but the rooms are spotlessly clean and are regularly serviced each day and they are large in size. If you like Old worlde charm which isn't falling apart but beautiful big staircases and mahogany furniture than this could be the Hotel for you.

    Breakfast is included in the price and is a wonderful array of cold meats, cereals, jam, toast, salad vegetables,fruit, eggs, rolls, bread and so on and of course tea, coffee and juice. It has a great downstairs lounge where guests can sit and relax after a busy day's sightseeing, there is also a outdoor area where you can sit as well as another "sunroom" style lounge room. Off to the side is a fully equipped bar and a Cyber cafe, Hairdresser's, Currency exchange and Gift shop.

    Unique Quality: This Hotel is a real treasure and I was grateful to come back to it after the hussle and bussle of Cairo city. It's lounge was a great way to meet other guests and some we have kept in touch with to this day. The doorman was very helpful and we didn't mind giving him a tip as he had good general knowledge and could speak English reasonably well. The hotel is centrally located and makes a great base to get to all the Tourist attractions.

    Directions: Downtown Cairo

by shelnlin about Victoria Hotel, Cairo

Victoria Hotel is beautiful old fashioned Victorian styled building which is a real sanctuary when you want to get away from the hussle and bussle of Cairo. With a beautiful big lounge room, this place makes it an ideal area to relax in after a long day's sightseeing and to meet other tourists in the Hotel. Here you can order drinks from the Kitchen such as Tea, Coffee, Hot Chocolate (which is lovely), Juices and soft drinks plus a selection of sandwiches. If alcohol is your preference you can relax in the tranquil little bar opposite the Lounge area or go outside to the outside area or up top to more seating which overlooks the street.

Breakfast which is a buffet that runs from 6am to 10.30am every morning is included in the price and everything is always fresh and tasty. Going back for seconds or thirds can be great as the breakfast can keep you going right through the day and you may only require a light lunch elsewhere so thats a plus. Dinner is extra.

The rooms are spacious and rather big with a ensuite bathroom off to the side. Each room is serviced every day with new towels etc... Satellite television is avaliable. Each of the rooms are beautifully decorated in old if not antiquey styled mahogany furniture.

Having spent a bit of time in this Hotel and using it as our base when we were in Egypt we had a different room each time we checked in. The best one we found was on the third floor at number 301 as it is quiet and there is very little road noise and one can hardly hear the call to prayer that goes off at the local mosque which is almost next door. Ask for a room away from the road and the mosque if you don't like road noise. This hotel has a beautiful charm about it and is very good value for money. One would assume that it is expensive because of the way it has been decorated but it is reasonably priced and is suitable for all travellers including families.

The beauty of this Hotel is it's spaciousness and it is well layed out, there is a Cyber cafe off to the side and a Hairdressers and Currency Exchange.

I called it my home away from home while I was in Egypt because it really made me feel at home while I was there. The staff are all friendly and the Doorman with his toothless grin made the place a pleasant if not enjoyable stay.
