            I spent in hotel 9 nights and as it was not my first time in Cairo I can compare with lots hostels and Royal the best one! Everything is new, very clean, and comfortable, always with hot and cold water and ac. A bit noisy during the day, because some coffee-shops around, but at night its quiet enough, so I was sleeping with opened balcony - hostel closed from main streets with noisy traffic by buildings around. At morning it was couple hours for local market downstairs, so easy to buy fresh fruits - no need to go far. What else... I was in Cairo 7 times and now I found place where I want to come back! Thank you very much guys! Good start, so keep this high level! Good luck and see you soon :)

            Just advice - please care about flowers on balconies more

            Location, accessible to other business establishments like atm machines, McDonald's,Nile river and close to train and bus stations.The white paint design which makes the surrounding clean and organised.

            The toilet does not have its own ceiling and no cable tv and fridge. Bath towel size is very small,it is just like the size of a hand towel. They advertised that they accept credit card payment but the reception is persistent in telling you to pay cash. Bread are not freshly toasted or warmed.Customer service needs to be improved by not making the guest feel being rushed to settle bills. The lunch meal that was promised to me was not delivered.

            Very clean and spacious rooms and helpful staff especially Mr: Khalid sure I will come again next visit

            No tv in the rooms and they have to improve the breakfast.

            The rooms are exactly as pictured and the staff is amazing. The majority speak some english and Mohammed is a treasure who went out of his way to make our stay extremely comfortable.

            I think the charges for drinks and laundry service were high, but this may be comparable to other hotels.

            Pro's: new, spacious rooms, pleasant design, very comfortable bed, clean helpful staff, located in a nice street. Con's: Some rooms are noisy from the cafe's below.

            The staff were courteous and most helpful. The hotel itself is quaint but with a lot of charm. It has the best of a hostel/guesthouse with it main room and ability to communicate with other guests and a hotel with it's clean rooms and personal bathrooms. The location could not have been better with cafes downstairs and the Museum and Tahrir Square within a ten minute walk and a 3 minute walk from Talaat Harb.

            It's a little hard to find. I recommend booking the hotel cab--it's not a bad deal at $15. Once at the hotel make sure to ask for their map--they have it on a postcard.

            The staff are attentive, if you need anything, they will be there to help you. The hotel is simple and is in the center of Cairo.

            There are bars around the hotel and the noise is constant during the night is not easy to sleep.

            Excelllent location in the heart of Cairo, easy access to transport, all amenities very close by. We had a very enjoyable time at the hotel where the staff were very friendly and efficient, price was very reasonable and the hotel and rooms were very clean; however during our stay there was no television service due to the recent opening of the hotel but they plan on aquiring it at a later date. We would definatly think of repeating our stay in this hotel.

            Same breakfast served every day however it was tasty.

            This is a good hotel very clean and the rooms are pretty. I would personally recommend this hotel, if you want to be in central location. It is easy to reach everywhere and taxis fees from and to the airport are very low. You can also walk all down town from the hotel and enjoy all the shops around it. Muy buen hotel, bien ubicado en el centro, se puede caminar a todas partes, cerca del rio, del museo del cairo y de muchas tiendas, ademas los precios de los taxis desde y hacia el hotel no pasan de 30 libreas. Los cuartos son muy buenos y modernos, personalmente recomiendo este hotel.

            The hostel is extremely clean and well designed. Its close to many shops and is located in the heart of Cairo. Its one of the best hotels Ive stayed at and is good value for money. The photos found on Booked.net are a true indication of the quality of the rooms unlike some other hotels

            The frindly-ness of the staff and the yummy breakfast.

            Not very clean room and very noisy area. Some visitors were drinking at very late hour in the public area.

            The staff at Hotel Royal are fantastic - incredibly helpful, welcoming and very comfortable atmosphere. They are always available and ready to help. If you are traveling as a solo traveller, as I was, this would be a very welcoming and friendly place to stay. The hotel is situated in a fantastic downtown location - very close to the Egyptian Museum, Tahrir Square, the Nile and near to Sadat Metro station. Also, downstairs from the hotel is a lively alleyway, filled with atmospheric cafes where you can get all your sheesha needs met! The rooms are stylish, simple and tasteful with comfortable beds and cleaned daily to a high standard.

            Hotel Royal WOW thanks for a fantastic holiday! Very beautiful decorated hotel in the middle of down town, only a few minutes away from Egyptian Museum and to the river Nile. Compare to the other down town hotels in Cairo in the same price category this hotel really rocks. It’s a small quiet hotel, which gives a personal, home feeling. Rooms are being cleaned everyday, fresh flowers in the room. great breakfast was served. The staff was great, and really helpful thanks to them I had a wonderful stay in Cairo, + a lovely tour around Egypt, they fixed for us an amazing desert safari + a tour to Luxor with all transport and guiding to the sights included. And they had very good prices for their tours also , we met some other tourists that had about the same tour as us in Luxor but they went with another company and they paid a lot more then us. All and all, we are very happy to have stayed at Hotel Royal in Cairo, and that we waited till we came to the hotel to organise the rest of our Egypt tour, so that the travel desk/reseption could help us with sightseeing and tour in Cairo and outside Cairo. Hope to come back soon Thank you very much to Hotel Royal friendly people. see you soon.
