Unbeatable location in downtown Cairo Aug 24, 2011
The Lotus Hotel is located in downtown Cairo. The location is unbeatable. The Egyptian Museum and Nile waterfront are withing walking distance. It is also possible to walk to parts of Islamic Cairo from the hotel. Last but not the least the Hotel is very close to the metro line which will allow you to get to other parts of the city including Coptic Cairo.

The staff was friendly. The rooms are adequate (keep in mind this is a backpacker hotel. We had a triple room on the first night which came with a balcony. On the second night we moved to a double room. Rooms come with AC (a must in the heat in July). Breakfast is included in the room charge.

Last but not the least the hotel can arrange for a pickup/ drop off from the airport. We also used them to provide a car and driver for the day to take us to see the pyramids. Rates were quite reasonable. If you are a backpacker on a budget then I recommend this hotel.

I forgot to mention, the downtown area is dotted with shops, restaurants and cafes including right opposite the hotel.

Lotus Hotel Cairo Overview

In the mid-nineteenth century, Egypt's Khedive Ismail dreamed of building a Paris along the Nile. Thankfully he did not demolish the existing city, as was largely the case in Haussmann's Paris. Instead, he commissioned the finest architects of the age to erect a new city adjacent to the ancient city of a thousand minarets. Cairo's new European quarter boasted elegant buildings, vast, open squares, parks and broad, tree-lined avenues. For many years the district was named Ismailia in honor of the Khedive. Today it defines the center of modern downtown Cairo. And while in the subsequent years, the architectural masterpieces of the belle epoque have been joined by creations in concrete, glass and steel, the captivating atmosphere of Ismail's Cairo remains intact. At its heart is the Lotus Hotel. Located on one of the quarter's main thoroughfares, the famed Soliman Pasha Street (today Talaat Harb Street), the Lotus maintains an authentic art deco ambiance that dates to the founding of the hotel in the first half of the twentieth century. Today, as then, the Lotus Hotel remains a family-run institution, providing the guest with gracious hospitality, comfort and an outstanding location from which to explore this most fascinating of cities.
