Poor 2.0
Run down
The place is just atrocious. To simply avoid it would be my recommendation!
Aly, gb2 night trip with friends
Very Good 8.0
3 nights in Cairo
We agreed to relocate from Velvet 1928 to Velvet 1915 to experience their newer hotel. It was a good decision because Velvet 1915 location is closer to centre Cairo and the rooms slightly more spacious. However there were 4 power trips in the 3 nights causing blackouts and no water supply for about an hour each time. Very comfortable beds but room floors a bit unclean with dust and hair balls.
