8/10 Very good

Staff and location are why you stay here
Located on the 4 th floor above one of Cairo's busiest avenues is a double edged sword. Handy to the museum and Tahrir Square but lots of street sounds. They do abate by midnight and don't start up again until 6:30 or so and ear plugs work. There is very limited public area at the reception and smoking is allowed,alas. But it does not reek of tobacco otherwise. The staff are all cheerful and very helpful from organizing day trips to ordering in from Kazam. When my budget single was not available, Mustafa gave me the triple for no extra charge. Wi fi in the room is great and the shower is nice and hot. if you value good basics and appreciate value for $, stay here.

Good Location for Accessing Cairo
As we were staying more than two days, the hostel arranged for a ride into town from the airport. Even though our plane was a little late, it was nice having a driver waiting for us. This was our second time staying at One Season, so nothing came as a surprise. Access is a little difficult if not physically fit as the elevator does not work or is not safe for people. The climb up the dark and dirty steps might be hard for elderly or immobile guests, but once inside, we felt right at home.

10/10 Exceptional

For the price, amazing!
I really had the best time ever staying at the hotel. The staff work so hard to make your stay a pleasant one, and the rooms are bigs and very clean. Location is fantastic, right next to the museum and other attractions. For the money, you'd get much more than you pay for. Excellent hotel, didn't want to leave. Will definitely stay there again when I come back to Cairo. Would recommend it to anyone. Only draw back there is no communal dining area yet, so breakfast is are end in the room. But everything else was perfect.
