great location
It was an "okay" hotel - nothing special. The breakfast was very basic - we would have rather had pita bread to put cheese, jam or egg on instead of pane bread.

Convenient location and friendly staff
My stay at May Fair hotel was very convenient and relaxing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great. There is a nice and big grocery store at your foot steps which is open 7:00 am to 3:00 am. If you have a car, parking is available for a very reasonable fees that is cheaper than the average of the area. Overall, great choice if you're looking fit shirt stay in Cairo for vacation or business.

3/5 Okay

For what you're paying in this area, its exactly what you should expect. That being said, it was fine. The room was clean, the bed was decently comfortable, its close to everything in Zamalek. The staff was nice and booked us cars easily. The weirdest thing is the ensuite bathroom didn't have a ceiling.
