Steigenberger Hotel El Tahrir, Cairo
Very Good8.0
Solo traveler in El Cairo
The hotel is centrally located, which is just what I wanted. I arrived really late around 2:00am and there were filming a show in the lobby area. So the check in took a bit longer than expected. The room is a good size and comfy. On the down side, when I checked in the amount I was paying wasn't what I was supposed to, based on the app. When I told the manager first they told me there were additional fees, but after asking to show me a breakdown they fixed the payment and charged me what I originally agreed to. So always check on how much they charge you! One more thing, I left my luggage in their storage for a few hours after my check out, while I went to the museum (which was literally across the street), when I came back and asked for my bag, they were giving me someone else's bag... once I told him he found my bag right away. Besides these little incidents, it was a pretty good stay. Just need to be extra careful!

The hotel should implement a policy saying that guests and visitors are not allowed to smoke in the lobby and public areas. It was difficult for us to stay for a prolonged period of time in the lobby, as we saw many people smoking and was making it difficult for my wife to breathe at times. The hotel rooms were very clean, and we liked the staff- no complains there. The view from our room unfortunately was a street view of some very run-down buildings. We have mixed review about the restaurant food, while the Arabic food was excellent, the Indian dish we tried had a lot to be desired. I would love to see more local Egyptian dishes and produce introduced in the a-la-carte menu.

Great location next to Cairo museum, traffic in & out can be onerous but location compensates.
