    We quite enjoyed our stay... the building has seen better days, like 50 years ago, but that is what Cairo is all about. The rooms were comfy and clean enough, the terrace breakfast is delightful, and the service was good humoured. The only thing I can't understand is why, with 2 or 3 men hanging around the desk all day, could no one get off their butt and pick up the cigarette butts and tissues lying on the staircase for the three days we stayed. I finally did it myself.

    The Zamalek location itself is a plus, and the grand marble entrance to the building is impressive. The staff is reasonably accommodating. The beds sagged so much that I had to stuff a pillow under me for back support. The mosquitos bombarded me nonstop even though it was December. And the hot water didn't come through one very cold morning. Keep your expectations low when it comes to breakfast. All in all, it's what it is for the price.

    48 hours in Cairo

    ... buildings are the same height, the boulevards are planned in a similar way (downtown Cairo was also laid out around the same time Hausmann was doing his thing), and people mill around in cafes and bars. The traffic is nearly as chaotic. Only difference - the service is better! A couple of hours in and I'm already giving thanks to divine providence, in the form of Egypt's state airline, for my 48 hours here. EgyptAir (through generous subsidies ...

    Cairo, EGYPT

    ... barricades... Scary. What was even more scary was the staring, like huge groups of men staring at me and the other blonde girl as we were walking past. Walking past the tanks, they had little windows and all you would see was people's faces looking out staring. Scary. It was only because we were white with blonde hair but it was still a bit unsettling, having such blatant staring.

    Inside the museum we were the only people for a good hour and a bit, ...

    ... many more in our group originally, but after the latest uprising in Egypt just recently, quite a few Americans pulled out leaving just 8 of them plus us. First impressions of Cairo - crowded, chaotic, beautiful, lively and exciting.It is warm and hazy, smoke haze we are told due to the practice of burning off which is supposed to be outlawed. Today we go first to a carpet school where young people are skilled in this traditional art of hand making carpets. We watch ...

    ... care of the household chores in the hostel. Nassar pointed me in the directly of the hostel bathroom and after I came back into the main area near the check in desk I found that his cousin had already laid out some tea in a teapot for me on a nearby coffee table. I sank into the chair at the table and began to speak to Nassar who didn’t seem in a rush to go anywhere. He asked me if I was enjoying Egypt so far and I explained about my luggage. He was horrified.
