Looking for a central located budget hotel/hostel,up to 25usd. Close to the museum. Either a private or a dorm. Something clean and fairly quiet.Where they don't always hassle you to use them for their arranged tours.I want to just do my own thing and not be pestered. Just wondering if anyone had any suggestions from recent experiences.Have done lots of looking on the internet and hostel sites.Thanks for any info.

Hotel Ismailia house is on the 8th floor at the Tahrir square. From roomnumber 805 you have a perfect view on the museum, the square and you can even see the Nile. Room 805 also has a huge balcony, you can spend the evening smoking a shisha/waterpipe up there. The rooms are clean but bathroom is shared. Prices in 2006 where 60 pounds per day (about 8-9 euro).
