“Old but very hospitable and cheap”

Written on: 26/04/2014 by Corneliusg357 (1 review written)

I stayed at Tiab House Hotel in Dokki, Cairo for 4 nights, April 2014.
it was a temporary short stay due to lack of cash, having moved from another hotel close by as the Tiab was alot cheaper.
The hotel is old and in need of an uplift, very basic and looks very tired. However, the staff, especially the Day time Manager was excellent and could not have been more obliging. he went out of his way to accomodate me, which as a single foreign woman was very reassuring.
The lady on reception did not speak any English, but was also as friendly and tried her best.
The room itself was very basic,small but clean with its own shower and toilet.I could not complain as it was a very low cost. Another benefit was the location as it was in a back street away from the busy main road and noise of th traffic so i slept very well.
All in all, if you are looking for something very cheap, friendly, and not too bothered about the standards, I would definately recomment the Tiab. Ideal for students or backpackers.
