Alexander Hostel, Cairo, Egypt
8.3
2nd Sep 2016

I have been staying at the Alexander Hitel on Mohamid Faried Street now for more than 15 years. It has lost some of its luster, but it is still a very reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of every major attraction in downtown Cairo. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

This has been my "go to" place in Alexandria for more than twenty years. The prices have escalated somewhat over the years but it is still among the best bargains in the city. It is centrally located and an easy walk to Raml Station making access to most of the city by tram extremely easy, convenient and economical. Sometimes the elevator doesn't work. And sometimes you have plumbing problems. The main thing I like is that I have never worried about the security of my room or my possessions

This was a repeat visit for me. I like this hostel very much. It is in a very convenient location with everything "downtown" in easy walking distance. Many shopping sites and restaurants are nearby. Very comfortable beds with firm mattresses. Bed linens were clean. The room was free of insects. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. I had an ensuite bathroom. The only difficulty worth mentioning is that often the water pressure was not sufficient to take a decent shower.

If you are looking for the Hilton - look elsewhere. But if you are looking for a very comfortable place to stay in a location that is close to everything downtown - look no further. Ensuite bathrooms are clean - plumbing works - sheets and bed linens are clean.

I have been staying at this hotel for more than 15 years. It is clean, feels safe, and the staff are always very accommodating.

Cairo Night Hotel, Cairo, Egypt

9th Sep 2012

The hotel staff was extremely friendly. But the hotel had many shortcomings. No hot water. WiFi stopped working. And even though my reservation called for an ensuite bathroom there were none available. I'm not sure that one of the clerks even knew what the word meant. The price was very reasonable - but I probably will not stay here again.

The room was air conditioned. This was satisfactory although I would have preferred a room with a balcony - or at least a window. The staff were extremely courteous and friendly.

If you are looking for a five-star Hilton, then perhaps you should look elsewhere. But if you are a budget traveler looking for a comfortable mattress with clean bed linens, this just might be the place for you. The location is good – 10 minute walk from the train or bus station. My room had a balcony, a ceiling fan, an ensuite bathroom and hot water for a shower 24 hours per day. Staff members here were very friendly and accommodating. They can book tours for you – boat rides, balloon rides, etc

I have been staying in budget hotels in Egypt now for 15 years - from Mersa Matroh to El Arish to Luxor and Aswan, Port Said, Cairo and all of the Oases. Luxor is a fun city - easy to get around walking. And the Princess Hotel has to be one of the very best bargains in all of Egypt
