Property is very old, so I do understand a bit of difficulty. Very hot when we were there, and ac cpuld not really cool room. Limited and dodgy wifi. Staff very eager to please. Tours arranged with Mr. Samir Fayek from hotel were great. Jotel has fewat driver and ac van for tour use, and Mohammed was a great guide! He spoke uent English, plus several ither languages. We were easily able to see all the sights.

We booked this property because of the historic nature of the hotel. It has a fascinating original lift and is little changed from the early 20th C. However, the "faded glory" is fading quickly. The food was only fair and breakfast very disappointing and very limited. The internet didn't work at all. It was very noisy as there are major roadworks immediately outside the building. This could be a really good hotel but needs some major work, esp on amenities eg sheets were clean but old and torn. Walking distance to the Egyptian Museum.
