To my fellow Americans: this is Egypt, and this is an Egyptian hotel. I paid less for one night than I would for a single meal at a chain restaurant in the US. Set expectations accordingly. But I would recommend it with those thoughts in mind.
The hotel is a couple of blocks off of Sheridan Street (the main tourist street). These couple of blocks are not pretty. There is beach access a few hundred feet down the road. It is adequate, but it is not the very best beach. My booking included breakfast, which caters to European/Russian tastes, not Americans, which are very different. The hotel is old, a faded version of former glory. Electricity and plumbing is very different than home. Be prepared to feel uncomfortable.
Now, to the good things: the hotel was plenty clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff was very helpful at all times, and English skills were reasonable. If you are looking to be close to the marina or Sheridan Street, the location is perfect if you don’t mind a little bit of walking. I ate everything on the breakfast buffet (odd or not!) and had no illness issues. I did not drink the tap water: bottled water is available for a reasonable price in the lobby. Safety, etc. never was even close to an issue.
This is a budget hotel. And, for an American willing to understand he is no longer in America, it is an excellent value.
