Hotel Richmond is recommended by major guidebooks, from Lonely Planet to France's Guide du Routard! Hotel Richmond welcomes budget travelers right in the heart of downtown Cairo, a mere 10 minutes' walk from the Egyptian Museum and from Ramses train station. Our hostel is housed in a beautiful 19th-century building with plenty of period character. Guests can enjoy huge rooms with high ceilings and original hardwood floors, in the combination that best suits your needs (from singles to triples, including a number of super-comfortable king-sized beds). And after a long day spent discovering the treasures of Cairo, just come relax in our two comfortable lounges with satellite T.V. and internet service! Reception is open 24 hours, with English, German and Italian-speaking staff. Travel information is readily available and all reservations (bus, train, taxi, tours, transfers, airport transportation) can be made through our 24-hour special information desk. We are proud of the constant recommendations that we have earned in major travel guidebooks, from Lonely Planet to France's Guide du Routard, and we look forward to seeing you here at the Richmond. Our prices may be cheap, but we will make you feel right at home! PS: Please avoid airport & street hustlers and hotel touts on your way to the Richmond.
