Great location and nice bar! Hotel was perfect for us, but we wanted to get a feel for the city. Not for everyone.
Hotel needs much work but only in refinishing and not replacing. Should not lose the classic feel! This is a budget hotel in the city. Breakfast a little lacking.
The atmosphere is something special, uncomparable. The whole hotel, including the staff feels 70 year old, in a good sense. A bit of old international Cairo.
My friend and I stayed 4 night in this hotel and on the way to the airport to come back, we thought that we're right with our choice. Windsor hotel is unique in the world. We tasted tour arrangement, breakfast, bar services and feel satisfactorily with its. Just some small things disappointed us but anyway its not influences to our inspiration during stay.
Arrange a guide who holds concurrently a driver in the trip to Alexandria and he is a big disappointment. He even doesn't know where the Lighthouse Pharos is. His name is Said with a mini van. The second is taxi to the airport, we paid 65 LE (normal price for white-cab taxi) but in fact, the hotel reserves a black taxi for us (very old, noise, no AC, etc.)
We had booked 2 rooms. One of the rooms ( the costlier one) was good. It had a balcony and the room were clean and big enough.
This was honestly the worst hotel I stayed in Egypt. Maybe all the hotels in Cairo are similiar and maybe this was best in Cairo. Dunno. Booking.Com page mentions standard room and there is a clause saying (With Shower)... When I went they say its a room with Shower Only and the toilets are common. So I paid extra and took another room. I have made atleast a dozen bookins via booking.com and this was the first time I experience this. The costlier room was fine. But when I checked out the smaller room it was pathetic. Not having a toilet was the least of the issues. The room would be about 40-50 sq ft. No windows and stuffy. When we went for breakfast for anything other than the break, jam and coffee you had to pay extra.
The helpfulness of the staff..The interesting ambience.
The immediate surrounds and the constant noise throughout the night
