There is no restaraunt. It took ages for a bottle of water to arrive. Food in the evening had to be ordered from a take away. The communal lounge is dim and dismal as it the whole floor. My room was noisy from the busy old outside.

This was a great hostel for the price, and the location was great (very close to The Nile River). I stayed in a private room with ensuite, and was happy at the quietness, cleanliness, and being able to open a sliding door to view outside (5th floor). Mai and the other staff were extremely helpful and kind to me, and if I return again to Egypt, I'll definitely stay at Invitation Hotel.

Its more like an old hotel. The host is a great guy, but the place is not a common hostel with travelers. Just local people.

A nice, clean hotel in an excellent location, with friendly and helpful staff. The location really is unbeatable - in walking distance to the National Museum, Tahrir square, and the intriguing Cafe Riche. One complaint: I hired a car through the hotel for a tour of the pyramids and the driver took me to a a very expensive camel ride operator in Giza and then a "papyrus factory". Although the pressure was subtle, I did feel compelled to spend money that I would not have otherwise.

I really thought everything was perfect except the room wasn’t clean enough. I really enjoyed my stay at the Invitation Hotel and I will be back again next year! I also want to say a big thank you to Mr. Mohamed for driving me around. Mohamed is a great man and I really hope to meet with him again. I would happily recommend Mr. Mohamed to other Hotel guest, if they wanted a great driver like Mohamed to drive them around Egypt.

I stayed here for four nights and would return as i felt the employees really made the place. I asked them questions, asked for advice, and after a frightfully awful experience with the October riots i felt that the hotel was a safe haven. Everyone there rushed to my aid and i think that speaks volumes for what kind of place it is. Cairo itself can be intense, single female traveller aside, so it's nice to know that you have some Egyptians you can trust. Also - good tours . and fair prices,

Great people, great place - located at downtown Cairo. Really super friendly place - would return. However, when they organise the tour to the pyramids, it's annoying that the driver takes you to perfume shops and papyrus shops in order to buy things (despite their claims, you do feel pressured) - would be nice if they asked you initially if you wanted to go there.
