"Indiana hotel is in a very good location, near to all the major attractions in Giza. Our room was very clean, quiet and spacious enough for a family of 3 with free Wi-Fi and good bathroom. Very friendly staff, we felt really welcomed. They always were greeting us with a smile. The Café in the roof was very nice, with an amazing view of Cairo tower, and the Nile. Indiana is a Perfect hotel choice for visiting Cairo, especially with its good rates. Next time we will choose it again for sure. "

"We stayed here at the first of March 2010.Indiana is decorated in beautiful traditional style, with marbled floor and comfortable Sofas in a cozy atmosphere for excellent value for the money. The room was very clean and the furniture was modern. Location is fantastic just 10 minutes from the famous Egyptian museum and 1 minute from the Nile. The staff is extremely accommodating We really enjoyed our stay at Indiana hotel. "

A Wonderful Hotel in Cairo

"Although we only spent one night at the hotel we had the most incredible experience in Cairo ever and it was all due to the wonderful people at the Indiana Hotel. From the moment I walked into the lobby we knew that Indiana is a gem. Our room was clean, comfortable, and spacious, the beds comfortable and the showers hot. The staff was all polite and friendly. The Breakfast was excellent. One of the features of the hotel is the outdoor rooftop terrace and the wonderful city views it affords. If we ever came back to Cairo we would definitely stay here again. "

Definition of a Good Budget Hotel

Good
by
Reviewed 24th March 2010

"I am really fair when writing this review, what defines a good 3 Star Budget Hotel? My answer is: Big and clean room, clean bathroom with hot shower, nice breakfast and finally good service. At Indiana Hotel I got all of this in addition to excellent location, a wonderful roof top café with really fabulous view of busy Cairo (take a look at the photo). However, if you are looking for more, or looking for perfection, then you must pay for that…Right?? I totally recommend this hotel. "

"Staying here was definitely a "high point" for my trip to Cairo; the hotel Indiana was a pleasant surprise. Our room was spacious, very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The bathroom was large, clean with hot water all day long. The location of the hotel is very central, with easy access to the Egyptian Museum, Cairo opera house and Downtown. All the staff is very warming and caring and helpful. There was internet access available, in a quiet atmosphere, and at a very reasonable price. We had the opportunity to have dinner at the Indiana hotel roof top terrace, on our last night there, and this was one of the best dinners we had in Cairo. It is really a fantastic place"

It's Egypt!

"It's Egypt and you should not expect the same standards as in other parts of the world! I had no problems with the Indiana Hotel and would definately stay there again. The room was spacious and clean, I was sharing with a friend and we had a king size bed each, telephone, television and fridge! Our room was cleaned everyday and if we needed anything the staff were very friendly and helpful! The breakfast was average but again its egypt! The roof top terrace was fantastic and the food was good. The location of the hotel was also very good. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends."

"I suppose you get what you pay for, although I suspect that other hotels in this category may be better. I wasn't bothered by the outdated furniture or the general run down appearance. The rooftop bar is indeed nice and the staff is friendly. However, cleanliness cannot be expected. Our room clearly had not been made up from the previous guest when we arrived (at 11 at night!). The porter removed the dirty dishes and sent someone up (who spoke no English). We insisted on clean sheets and towels - but that's all we got. The bathroom was dirty and in 4 nights, no one ever came to clean, replace towels or anything. I'm sure there were fleas in the bed, too. Breakfast went downhill every day, as there were fewer and fewer guests. The staff remained friendly until the end and it is in a safe area. However, since my minimum standard is cleanliness, I won't stay there again. Go at least 4-star!"

"This hotel was booked by our tour company so we had no choice but to stay there, if you have a choice then don't! Most of the problems have been covered by other reviewers but I confirm that the rooms are in bad need of updating. Our bathroom had torn shower curtains, cracked basin, cracked bath and was mouldy. It is the only time I have felt dirtier after a shower. The aircon didn't work properly either. Breakfast consisted of the weakest coffee ever, stale bread, oh and lets not forget the basket of mouldy fruit, including the greenest orange in the world. I was so glad to leave this place."

"I stayed at the Indiana to pick up a tour out of cairo which was starting there had I known I would have stayed somewhere else and cabbed it over for the start of the tour. Shabby and not very clean room - toilet didnt flush - door didnt lock - power points didnt work and the smell of diesel fuel (which the generator runs on) was overwhelming - checked into the Sheppherd Hotel on the nile for $20 more a night with a brillant breakfast included - breakfast at Indiana consisted of stale bread rolls orange cordial and foul tasting coffee - the staff were very friendly but the hotel should not be rated as 3* - stay somewhere else in Egypt preferrably book a 4 or 5* which will be the standard of a 3* in europe."

Absolutely Rubbish Hotel Do Not Stay Here!!

"PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL! The Croatian was absolutely right regarding this hotel. We did not choose this as it was booked by our tour. The first room we went in was filthy! The pillow case had a blood and urine stain! The bathroom was old and battered. We complained to our rep and got us another room. Only this time the bathroom ceiling was dripping with water. We were so tired we just wanted a clean bed to sleep in. The phone didn’t work here, the wire was damaged and no towels! We asked for towels the next day when we needed it. Throughout the night, the bathroom ceiling was dripping and had a small pool on the floor!! But since we were leaving for Luxor, we were glad to be out. We told our rep who promised us a better room on our return a few days later for our 2nd and last night, before leaving to go home. The breakfast was very very basic but edible. Falafels, bread rolls, scrambled eggs, sausage, feta cheese, jam, tea and coffee. Juice was too sweet. When we went there for only 2nd and last night, we got a suite room on the top floor. It was just as rubbish!! But only bigger, so what! The sheet had a green stain like snot, and the bathtub had cracks in it! And only 1 towel provided!! There was no phone either. We asked reception to put one as we needed a wake up call to go to the airport. When we got back that night, we were told there was one, BUT THERE WASN'T!! Someone knocked on our door instead but we had woken up early anyway!! I am so glad to be out of there! PLEASE DO NOT BELIEVE THE AUSSIS REVIEW AS I CAN ASSURE YOU THIS HOTEL IS NOT WORTH A PENNY ! YOU ARE BETTER OFF PAYING SOME MORE FOR SOMETHING DECENT. IT IS NOT WORTH 3 STARS BUT MORE LIKE 0!!!"
