Guest reviews for Hotel Grand Royal Cairo

3 out of 5

Grand is Not the Word I Would Use

Pros: The staff is very friendly and helpful. They will arrange affordable transportation and private tour guides.
Cons: The hotel is very dirty and the bedding leaves much to be desired. The whole place has a feeling of being thrown together at the minute.
Location: The location is great. Right in the center of Cairo. There are shops and cafes (non-alcohol) nearby.
The hotel isn't really a hotel. It is more like a low-end private room hostile. Amenities are minimal and the environment is unprofessional. The building the hotel is in is filthy and hard to find. Cairo is dirty city, so this place is better than the average, but is still off-putting by Western standards.
