Liked: Juliana Hotel a second home! The staff are absolutely brilliant (Charadi and Abanob - so friendly, funny and helpful!) They helped organise my travels around Egypt and made me feel very welcome and safe in Cairo. I will definitely stay again when I come back, and will recommend to all my friend that travel to this amazing city. All in all - a fantastic experience. Clean and spacious rooms, great showers and fast wifi.

Liked: Nice people and it felt safe: I was happy leaving my laptop in the room during the day.

Disliked: See above - I had a nasty little room, with no windows and no storage space. Not at all what was promised, and not great for a work trip. If I hadn't paid up front I would have changed hotel.

Liked: Staff was very friendly and helpful, very nice people. Very good situated and they arrange private transportation for you. The driver took us to a nice Egyptian restaurant and that was an awesome experience. Even you have the freedom to decide whether you would like to go for shopping or not (shops around Giza are more secure). Full internet access and good international TV. Breakfast is OK for the money that you pay and you have free coffee and tea. Also, they offer free of charge luggage storage.

Disliked: The location is a bit difficult to remember and you have to map it in your mind very well. As this is close to the Tahrir square the traffic is a little bit mad, however we could not see any demonstration of violence at the time that we being. The hotel building is a bit ugly for say so, and the entrance is like a dungeon, but this appears to be something normal for many buildings in Cairo. However the hotel itself at the third floor is light and nice.

Liked: The staff were extremely helpful, helping us out with finding a box that we needed for shipping our bikes back to the uk

Disliked: Quite noisy inside the building. There is a doctors office on the same floor and a bank below so there is plenty of coming and going and Egyptians don't speak quietly!

Liked: Very nice room, bathroom was a little odd (somewhat open to the room and got water evvverywhere). Helpful staff, location in Garden City is great; very safe and walking distance to 2 subway stops and a great restaurant Taboulah.

Disliked: Honestly for Egypt its still a tad pricey, and the breakfast (as in most Egyptian hotels) is nothing to write home about.

Liked: Location!!! Quiet!! Garden City is a great area to stay in Cairo. Not so crowded and noisy.

Disliked: There was a mix up with the hostel as they overbooked, and instead of moving the people who did not have a reservation, they moved us! But they were very kind after that and made up for it with free transfers.
