Lonely Planet review
Practically speaking, the rooms at the Windsor are dim, with low ceilings and noisy air-conditioners. But with the beautifully maintained elevator, worn marble stairs and a hotel restaurant, where the dinner bell chimes every evening at 7.30pm, the place is hard for nostalgia buffs to resist. The entrance (to both the hotel and the bar) is on the back side, in the narrow street just south of Sharia Alfy.
Our independent authors have visited Windsor and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Cairo.
