Mostly great
This hotel is a great value. The rooms are beautiful, and the view of the square is nice. People have complained of the tiny bathrooms.. but they’re just fine. The people working there were nice and helpful. One thing to be wary of, specifically for unmarried couples: we stayed there 3 nights, and on the first night things were fine. Check in was smooth, they made copies of our passports, and we went to our room. On day 2 after exploring, we returned to our room for a nap, when there was a knock on the door. We were told that they needed to make copies of our passports—again. I’m not exactly sure what was going on.. they rifled through the pages and then told us they needed a copy of our marriage certificate. We’re not married, but in a panic we told them that we were and didn’t have copies. Eventually they let it go.. but I wasn’t sure what to make of it. There are laws against unmarried Egyptians staying together, or Egyptians and foreigners.. but it’s very much legal for westerners, so I don’t know. I never want to violate people’s cultural standards, and wouldn’t have stayed there if they mentioned this before hand.. but I did feel pretty uncomfortable after. If married or single, I would highly recommend though! In the same building as the Tulip hotel, on the 4th floor

Adequate accommodations in a convenient location
This place is difficult to find since it's on the 4th floor and there is no sign on the street level. You should follow the Tulip Hotel sign instead and take the elevator. The bathroom was cramped but at least there was a small table and chair for my laptop. Fortunately there was also a wall heater/AC which came in handy since the weather was somewhat chilly. There are a couple on inexpensive Egyptian fast food places nearby, e.g. Kazaz and Felfela, which are quite popular with the locals but may require some figuring out how they operate. Menus available in English on the wall. This area is very noisy with the constant traffic in the square, but I just took out my hearing aids and it was bearable then. On the positive side Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum are well within walking distance.

Clean, comfortable, quaint... but noisy
Excellent staff, responsive, and friendly. Noisy location. Rooms are nice but bathroom small. Difficult to sleep as I could hear people in check-in area talking. Door to my room was across from breakfast area, so no sleeping in. Bed very comfortable, water hot, clean, beat, minimal amenities. Very good location for food, shopping, ATMs. Difficult to find for taxi drop off and pickup. Not fancy but clean and Adam went out of his way to make me feel at home.
