    "All of the budget hotels we review below have air conditioning and telephones, the availability of televisions and private baths. Most have single occupancy pricing between $30 and $50 USD per night. Less expensive hotels may be found ranging as low as $2 to $5 USD per night, but will often lack even basic comforts such as private baths, and other guests are likely to be poorer Arabs rather then tourists. Prior to checking in to such hotels, it is highly advisable to make a tour of the facilities.

    The Hotel Longchamps (see also review) has and continues to be one of our favorite budget hotels. It is located in Zamalek which is on an island in the Nile just across from downtown Cairo. At $36 USD per night for a single, the Hotel Longchamps can’t be beat The area is nice, quiet and upscale. The hotel is bright, friendly and modern. The Hotel Longchamps, like many budget hotels in Cairo, occupies only the 5th and 6th floors of the building in which it is located. In the event that this hotel is full, below it is the Horus hotel, which also appears to be nice, though not on the same standards as the Longchamps.

    In downtown Cairo, is the Victoria hotel, another good choice and probably our second favorite, though somewhat more costly then the Hotel Longchamps. It occupies an entire building and does have a lovely ground floor garden and reasonably priced Internet cafe.

    Nearby the Victoria are two hotels which are also noteworthy, the Carlton, because it is the least expensive of all the hotels we visited, and the Windsor Hotel (also see Historical Reviews and Bar Review). The Carlton is clean, has a nice roof top garden restaurant with a good view. As for the historic Windsor hotel, we have reviewed it this month in another feature article on historical hotels in Cairo, and last month we reviewed its landmark bar.

    Finally, there is the Hussein hotel located within the Khan el-Khalili. Again, this hotel has all of the basic necessities, including rooms with air conditioning, private baths, telephones and televisions. It is ideal for commercial buyers who plan on spending most of their time within the Khan, and has a great view of the Khan from many of the rooms. From huge roof restaurant, it also has an excellent view of Islamic Cairo in just about all directions."

    There are many nice cheap hotels, but also many bad cheap hotels, be careful! I agree with the other poster as to where you should start looking.
