    The hotel is authentically Egyptian while being cosmopolitan and comfortable. Staff was attentive and helpful. Food was excellent and I took all meals at the Windsor. The neighborhood is interesting and diverse. Close to shopping both at retail establishments and street vendors. I heartily recommend it over the sterile and pretentious so called 5 star hotels operated by international corporations.

    Hot water was not as hot as it could be. Staff will tell you the best hours for showering or bathing, so it is not really a problem to adjust to those hours.

    The friendly staff, great location and amazing period features.

    I liked the historical feel of this hotel and especially how the property has been maintained without "modernizing" it at all!

    Everything was perfect!

    This is the fifth time in a row that we stayed at the Windsor and I can honestly say that it is one of my favourite hotels in the world! It has charm, comfort and extremely friendly staff. Management: please keep everything as it is, the vintage Swissair posters included. There are thousands of refurbished hotels but, as you are certainly aware, the Windsor is one of a kind. Be sure also to invest in meticulous maintenance of the elevator! And the elevator operator! Sleeping at the Windsor is like sleeping in a museum! The only place in Cairo I would prefer to sleep is to have a bed next to King Tut's sarcophagus.

    However much I love the hotel, it did strike me this last time I stayed that the plumbing and the lavatories were having some flow-difficulties. Reported this to the staff who were certainly going to look into it. And it may be time to invest in new, somewhat thicker mattresses: perhaps my muscles are ageing a bit, but I did find them a little hard and thin.

    The Barrel Bar was relaxing and had old-world charm.

    Staff gave us the hard-sell approach on extra tours. The place was quite shabby and dirty and not worth the price.

    The owners were very friendly and the excursion booked for us by the hotel was very good.

    The rooms could do with some modernisation, especially the bathrooms, to bring it up to international standards. It's a lovely building but it feels very run down.

    The hotel was a lovely old egyptian style hotel with a real air of history about it. The rooms decor were in keeping with this same style and the staff were all very helpful and polite. The bar and restaurant had a lovely ambience and it really felt like we were in a tranquil place whilst chaos was all around in the city that is Cairo!

    The location cannot be beat. The staff was very helpful in getting us guides for the day, especially Samir and who couldn't love the fun woman who serves us breakfast. The hotel is full of charm all the way around.

    The Windsor is a special place; many would find it tired and run down, which to some extent it is, but the lines on its face tell of many events, and interesting people that have stayed here. It is like staying with an old-fashioned family in their old mansion..not without its drawbacks, but utterly memorable. I was there at the beginnnings of Cairo's turbulence and was well looked after; the staff and owner were very careful and caring, and very helpful. I hope I will be back.

    Staff were friendly. The riots were going on but they did their best to ensure adequate food etc.

    Rather dark and dingy. Lobby area dirty and small. Phones antiquated.

    The Windsor hotel is like stepping back in time, the staff are very plesant and helpful, the bedroom could do with a bit of tlc, however for what you pay i think that it is fine.

    It is an excellent location for exploring central and downtown Cairo. The restaurant is fine and the bar is very comfortable.. It also evokes a strong image of the 1940s and 1950s

    The lift could be modernised without losing the period feeling,

  • Family with children

    The Windsor generally was a nice hotel with good facilities despite it's age. It is located downtown and very central Cairo. The staff are good and generally helpful. The rooms we stayed in had renovated bathrooms which was a plus as some of the bathrooms weren't good.

    Sometimes staff struggle with English and are keen to sell tours to you which can be expensive. The dining room and lounge serves plain food and drink at a high rate. Better to eat out.

    the breakfast is good

    It's a heritage property and the services were good. Staff are very friendly.

    Nothing as such.
