  • "Hello, I am travelling with my father and my girlfriend. We will be arriving at Cairo at 5:50 AM morning on the 12th February from Aswan in a sleeper train. We would like to stay at your hotel on the night of February 12th and check out on the 13th. Few questions: -When we first arrive at Cairo, can we drop our luggage at the hotel in the morning around 6:00AM? We would come back later in the afternoon to do our checkin. -Is there a common shower facility that we can use in that same morning? Considering that we took the overnight train, we would like to take a shower before starting our day in Cairo and after dropping out our bags at your hotel. This is very important for us. -How much is the airport shuttle service for your hotel? We have a flight in the morning the next day. Thank you, Weishen"

    Dear guest Weishen&quot, Hope this message finds you well. Thank you so much for your Request. Actually, the check-in time is between 12:00 P.M to 02:00 P.M and check-out time is between 11:00 A.m to 12:00 P.m. So, If the room is unoccupied at the time of your arrival, you may certainly check-in early. Please keep in mind that this cannot be guaranteed. ( If the room is occupied before your check-in day, the guests in that room will have the right to keep the room until the check-out time. If the room is unavailable at the time of your arrival, you are welcome to leave your bags in the luggage room and be our guest for breakfast and welcome drink. As well as we have external bath room+shower at your service. Also, We would like to inform you that we have a pick up shuttle service from the airport to the hostel. Just provide us with your flight details, flight number, terminal and arrival time. That can ease the way to arrive safely without any hassle. ( cost 15$ for air conditioned vehicle) Also we have an information desk that can guide you with directions, tours, transportation, etc. Looking forward to meeting you soon. Sincerely Radwa Castle Hostel

  • Good afternoon. I am Spanish man marrying an Egyptian woman through civil contract with a syndicate lawyer " عقد زواج عرفي ". We are traveling to Cairo next Thursday. I would like to ask if I can book a room for us at your place. Kind regards, Javier

    Mr/ Javier, We are so sorry for our delayed response. Actually, According to our policy the Customary marriage (syndicate lawyer) is not acceptable. So, it has to be an official marriage contract. sincerely
