Many Cairo hotels are located on the upper floors over commercial property, so don't be concerned when entering! Head right inside to the elevators to the top two floors of this building. (Reception is on the 8th floor.)This hotel is in an excellent location with amazing staff and very nice rooms. It is not "posh," but wonderfully welcoming and enjoyable! I would be VERY surprised if you can find better for the price and with this really great staff!!
