            Hotel staff specially reception staff was friendly and good.Rooms are OK.Good to accommodation if you have limited budget.breakfast ok

            Be ware of Taxi drivers even though suggested by hotel.They will charge you more so negotiate with hotel staff as they may be hand in glove to get commission.Taxi drivers will take you to their hand in glove shops restaurants to get commission on the way to your trip so don't fall in a trap.If visiting pyramids in Gaza dont let taxi driver stop at horse carriage shop that is his commission from that. Ask him to take you straight to pyramid site.We were cheated.

            Its location is really good and also the price.

            The hotel didn't have a specific system for which rooms are deluxe and which are standard. Most of the rooms are standard except one floor with good rooms. But the rooms are not as good as described online. Also the hotel doesnt have a nile view,yet on booking one of the room options was Nile view, it had a front street view and a back view.

            Chief cooker is excellent. He prepares national authentic Arabic cuisine: I tasted Daoud Basha (meat with rice), many different salads (Taboul, Fatoush, Baba Ghanoug), lentil soup, falafel, sweet desserts (E.G. Om Ali is very tasty- it's a hot pot of sweet porridge with coconuts and raisins). Staff is very friendly. Taxi is available upon request.

            Cappuccino coffee is too milky (it should be a bit more strong and less milky).

            location

            food was awful, facilities was non-existent, hotel was dark, room was damp, there was nowhere to sit outside and have a coffee eg. roof cafe

            6.0

            The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, although not all of them speak English, they do their best to please you.

            The staff and guests were extremely noisy going about their business, local people communicate by shouting, and it was hard to relax in the day. There are only 2 English speaking channels on the TV, the rest are al in Arabic. The level of cleanliness of the room could be better.

            10.0

            Every thing was excellent and value for money and friendly staff and good breakfast. Mr. Abdel Nasser (marketing manager) very helpful for every thing & very kind gentelman, God bless him. While staying with my family I did not find any difficulty because of Mr. Abdel Nasser was very helpful to me. Hotel rooms are neat and clean with Nile river view. I prefered to stay again, also I recommend others to stay, its worth of staying in such hotel and its near by many things & eatery like kfc, pizza and supermarkets nearby and easy excess to many city site.

            7.8

            The hotel has some kinds of rooms, I stayed in there two times during the same trip - first was very nice room (with balcony on and front view), second I need to ask to change room (for double room they are nice, for twin room not that much). Localization is ok, good area, also have one mini market on the corner.

            They are not flexible with the rates, and the managers (day and night are not that kind) - the rest of the staff is good, beackfast is just ok, not big deal.

            I liked nothing if I can advise u it's to remove this hotel from ur booking. I called them my flight was delayed n that I will arrive after midnight n still they cancelled my room. I got a dirty room n not what I booked, everything in the room was broken n no flat tv. I left Cairo after 4 days disgusted n I had to stay 7 days.

            There's no bar as they say, the bar is closed...n no disco closed too...really dirty hotel.

            The bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

            When I first arrived from the airport (late in the evening) the taxi driver would not leave until I gave him more money even though we had agreed on a price at the airport. The hotel did not help and took the taxi driver's side. I then asked the hotel for a recommendation on where to eat and the receptionist said the hotel restaurant was very good and that he could not recommend any others. The hotel restaurant was over priced and my meal was inedible. I ordered a tabouli salad and it was a raw onion with a bit of parsley and tomato thrown in. On my last day I asked for them to help me get a taxi and instead of calling me a legitimate taxi, they tried to get me to go in their friend's run-down car and charge me over three times the price that it should have. This culture of trying to rip people off all the time is infuriating. I had such bad feelings towards this hotel and their management that I cannot recommend them to anyone. There is a breakfast buffet but it is stale bread and a selection of other un-fresh food.

          • Couple

            It is in Dokki, an area we like, as it is not a foreign enclave like Zamalek but instead feels more 'normally Egyptian'. It is close to the metro station of Dokki and Alfa supermarket is around the corner. On Tahrir street you can also get Kushary or Taamiyya, and it is a 30 min walk into town. Paraohs is not a posh hotel but clean and everything works ok. The staff are friendly.
