              There appears to be a very noisy night club operating in the basement of the hotel....possibly not under the same ownership. The noise was unbelievable but the staff at the hotel kindly changed my room to one where the noise was less of a problem. It does, however, seem to be a problem throughout the building and, for this reason, I would probably not use the New President again....preferring it's sister hotel The President....next door.

              They force you to pay $4 for a breakfast that is both terrible and served in a room that is unfit for the public. Booked.net should make clear that the breakfast is mandatory, and also let the cusotmer know they tack on a 10 per cent tax and 12 per cent service charge--the info on the reservation is too vague. In short, a $93 three day stay turned into $150.

              They added charge for breakfast above what room cost when reserved.

              staff was very helpful and nice, the rooms were clean and nice, the location is perfect.

              the school across the street the kids are noisy and you have to listen to them singing early in the morning, it won't be a big deal if you have to wake early.

              Excellent location in leafy Zamalek, just a five minute walk from some lovely riverside resteraunts and a 5 minute taxi ride in to the centre of Cairo. Relatively spacious rooms with good en suite bathroom.

              My friend and I arrived late in the evening and the staff on the front desk was very arrogant and not at all welcoming, so different to the hospitality we had experienced in other hotels around the country. There were many extra charges added on top of the room rate, which increased the cost of the room by around 25% (this is shown on Booked.net, but when they worked out the bill they did it so that they added the extra % one by one, so that each extra was included in the calculation for the next addition- a complete rip off). They also tried to charge us extra for breakfast, which we did not want (having seen the dingy looking resteraunt, I'm glad that we declined this option, especially as there are so many other great eating places near by). Generally, we found the place to be very dingy with grubby, stained carpets and bed linen. The worst thing was that the whole place stank of cigarette smoke. Despite booking a "non smoking room" there were ash trays in the room and all the soft furnishings, towels and bed sheets stank of stale tobacco, so that by the morning we felt that we had slept in an ash tray! Having stayed in various places around Egypt on a 10 day holiday, this was by far the least pleasant and was also not the cheapest. However, this place was recommended by a friend who has stayed in several hotels in Zamelek, so it may just be the best of a bad bunch.

              Room was nicer than expected given the price

              The hot water wasn't hot enough for a shower No central heat room service was not very responsive (3 calls, 1 visit to reception, and an hour and a half later I got what I wanted).
