    What impressed us the most was the staff. We absolutely fell in love with all of them. They were so kind to us and so helpful in planning day trips for us. They were there for us in our every need and concern. We also enjoyed the roof garden restaurant and shisha bar very much.

    Location is very far to dowen towen and city is too trafic

    Quiet and small hotel, 3-star, fairly close to the airport (about 15 mins) which was important to me. Wifi was cheap (20 Egyptian pounds or $3 for a 6-hour connect-time voucher, which lasted my entire stay). Room was only $75.

    The hotel was fine for its 3 star rating. But I found that for only $30 more I could have stayed in a 5 star at the airport. That's what I'm doing on my return trip.

    The hotel is close to the airport, and the staff is very helpful

    The hotel facilities just don't compare to international standards at this price point; although I felt safe and comfortable, it was a very simple hotel that I would expect to charge half as much.

    Staff were helpful when I had to alter my check-out date, fnice people.Restaurants good, room cleaning good.

    Simple issues with the room includes, some lightbulbs broken, leaking shower unit, water heater sellotaped up, tv not tuned properly..... but this is a hotel in egypt and having lived there this is pretty standard procedure stuff! didn't really bother me but might be a problem for others.

    being small the reception worked well

    was next to a building site which started at 06.45 with loud machinery. Was expensive for what it was.

    Great room, Great staff had a pleasant stay.

    Location is not that good I think. Taxi drivers find it hard to find the hotel.

    Good location for the city.

    Staff at the hotel were very slow. Did not speak English very good. Although breakfast included, it was very little. Altogether, I would not stay at the Karvin hotel again

    5.0

    The staff were good and helpful also the garden resturant was very good and the Shisha was also good and clean.

    They told me the booking was not confirmed and waited for the manager to solve the issue due to there was no rooms.

    The hospitality of the staff,the selections of resturants at such a small hotel, with only 60 plus rooms, last week was the 8th time I have stayed at this hotel since June 2010.

    The fact that as such a small hotel ,the resturants at this hotel are very good. there is an Indian resturant, with true northern Indian food, also a Chinese resturant, with true chinese food, an Arabic resturant on the roof, with shisha smokers, and all the types of Arab foods, and an International resturant, all these resturants are very reasonably priced,$10 for a grilled steak, and the Indian resturant $20 per person,for a good meal, of Samosas, Tandoori Marsala Chicken, mixed rice with vegertables, beer & tea,likewise in the Chinese resturant, all good value for money, lets only hope that prices do not rise too much in the future, over the last 4 months the room rates have risen over 30 %, not fully due to the Dollers decline

    location

    On the web site it described the Karvin hotel as being a newly refurbished boutique hotel. It had been refurbished 6 years ago. I was offered a driver for the day for 350 Egyptian pounds. II felt this was over priced. I also had to pay for my internet access.

    Karvin have good choice of breakfast. Main reason to stay there is have Indian Restaurent and breakfast.

    Rooms are not clear as before. Lot of mosquitos in the room.
