    Beautiful old building with a lot of caracter. Friendly and helpful staff. Bar with a nice atmosphere. Centrally located. Wi Fi connection.

    The room was dark, hot and noisy- the airconditioning was even more noisy so we prefered the heat. The beds were uncofortable- probably overused. Room and bathroom could use a general make over. The price reflects the impressive history of the place, rather than its current state.

    Exceptional

    Fabulous location in downtown Cairo and within walking distance to the Museum. Genuine, helpful and happy staff. Made our stay memorable especially the lovely lady who supervises the breakfast! The rooms and the hotel are faded grandeur. A great place for a good nights comfortable sleep. Recommended! Good value for the money.

    Exceptional

    Historic setting, attentive and enthusiastic staff, great downtown Cairo location, charming and true to its "faded grandeur British Colonial" description which added to the enjoyable ambiance, owners were approachable and gracefully accommodated our room change request. Great value for our money. Ate most of our meals at the restaurant, never got sick. Made our first visit to Cairo very memorable.

    Smoking allowed in the famous Barrel Bar, but that's Cairo.

    Fabulous

    The price was right, free internet, two blocks from Attaba Metro station, breakfast was simple (tea with a few pieces of toast and jam/cheese), lounge was comfortable and quiet. Other guests were primarily international tourists.

    The street noise from nearby cafes could bother some, but it was drowned out by the regular hum of the AC. The shared bath in the hall might bother some, so spend the extra $10/night and go for the private room with shower.

    The hotel is well located within walking distance of most major attractions.

    The floor in my room had not seen a vacuum cleaner in months!

    Fabulous

    All staff in the hotel were very, very kind and helpful! In the Windsor hotel you can feel spirit of past colonial days. The location is great - very near to 2 metro station (metro is very cheap 1LE) or you can take a walk to the main square, heart of Cairo : Midan Tahrir (Square of Liberation).

    the people is very nice, all the time, they will try to bring the best service. The hotel is near to the Cairo Museum.

    Good

    The location was convenient and the area had a better 'Cairo' feeling than the hotel area near the museum and the Cairo Tower.

    I didn't like the 20 or 30 spider bites I took home with me.

    Fabulous

    The hotel makes up in charm and atmosphere what it lacks in modernisation. Yes a little rough around the edges, but wonderfully friendly staff and it is exactly what it claims on the tin: a historical hotel rather akin to an officers mess of yesteryear with bags of character. Loved it.

    Very good

    1) The guy on Reception supporting me in dismissing the lying, cheating taxi driver who claimed to have been given the wrong address by the hotel when calling earlier. This is a well-known ploy to extort money. 2) The food was tasty. 3) The staff were helpful. 4) The hotel is very well located for the main (Ramses) train station - easily walkable.

    1) The inclusive breakfast is meagre. Extras such as eggs have to be paid for. 2) There is a rooftop terrace? We were told there wasn't. Maybe we misunderstood.

    Very good

    The great location, very central in Cairo, nearly everything is in walking distance. The staff are very friendly & helpful. The bar is a beatifull old bar with a great atmosphere and good food.

    The accommodation rooms are very tired, a big clean/ scrub, new carpet and paint job would make it a great hotel.

    Superb

    My stay at the Windsor was very enjoyable. The staff was terrific, always graciously ready to help and friendly with a smile. The location was great with an easy walk to the Metro, interesting though slightly longer walks to other downtown locations like Tahrir Square, and within walking distance of historic Islamic Cairo. There were many smaller restaurants nearby to grab a quick but yummy and inexpensive meal, or other mid-range options too.The spacious and comfortable lounge (with food and drinks) of the hotel was a real bonus, and the ready access there and in my room to the wireless internet service was welcome. They also helped me arrange a tour to the pyramids and other sites through their tour operator, Samir Fayek, which worked out super. The English guide Mina was well-spoken and very knowledgeable about the monuments, plus other tips for tourists to keep us from spending too much money. As a solo traveler, I was very comfortable here as well.

    Good

    The drabness of some of the hotel was more than made up by the very friendly and helpful staff. Samir Fayek in particular was brilliant in arranging guided tours to the attractipons that I wanted to see and I intend to return there as soon as I can, in order to visit the other areas that my short stay did not allow me to visit this time.

    The bar was good, Food and drink were reasonably priced and like much else within the hotel, it was like stepping back in time.
