People tend to check in during these times:
The outside of this station has been change... No more sideroad stalk, jammed, horn.. Just road and police..
Clean shops .. Kfc ,, bookstore ,, pharmacy
The station has been renovated in a beautifully artistic design with new cafés and restaurants opened like Mercado, fel Mahatta, and KFC. Just hope they keep it up!
Big screens in English with all departures and English speaking staff at the ticket desk. Comfortable, easy to get around, great branch of Alef bookstore there too.
Foud court is available now
The renovated station is amazing 😍
Alef book store on ground level, pick a book for the trip. Go upstairs for Mercato cafe grab your caffeine dose & clean bathrooms.
On my way to Alexandria, A long waited vacation
The food court is ready! They have KFC, a local fast food and a Café.
We need a new generation to deal with the ppl here in the railway station. ..old ppl should retire
Watch Cairo observer's TEDxCairo talk for insights on how stupid the station new design is.
If you have an hour or so before your train you can have a quick bite at the new cafes upstairs, you'll also find KFC, although the value is less than what you pay for, but it's a good place to wait..
Trains Come & Go ... Faces meet & apart .... Live Just keeps going on it's Rail ..
The new ticketing machine is awesome ! less time & crowd ! It took a minute to book. Use the one on your left, till today the right is not working. PS. For 10 pound tickets I paid 10.4 L.E
Very convenient Masha Allah
i liked it so much
KFC is now open
Believe or not, THERE IS NO ATM HERE !!
Don't ever try the Espresso here....:-(
If u wanna go to Aswan, go to #11 and ask for first class ticket, they will tell u all is booked and take sleeping car (60 dollars). They lie sometimes if u are a foreigner to expend more money.
The station is beautifully renovated. Alef bookstore and a decent pharmacy are now open. A proper food court is now under construction. They have come a long way!!
Another face of mess and ugliness!
There's something wrong happening in here lately. Trains leaving to Alex don't get ready on time. They get ready from 30 mins to 2 hours after the original time.
Come 30 minutes early, grab a newspaper or a book from alef bookstore with cup of coffee in the old Caffè :)
Decent cafes to open soon, alef bookstore already open & nice renovation. This okd station is getting s nice new dress :)
Never buy anything from there..totally overpriced..the places around are much cheaper..
Must to be in station before ur time at least 30 mins. :D cuz u didn't have to running :))
Take the time to wonder how expensive the ceilings are and how cheap the toilets, floors and overall appearance are
Coffee shops is coming soon!
Keep a constant close eye on your luggage and watch your pockets.
I miss the old station.. However the new one is dazzling!! :) loved the pharaonic style in the walls and the ceiling
I like it :) though i think they need to write the trains info in english too
This place is mine
Where trains never stop working
If you thought that you'll find tickets to Alex on Friday, you won't!!!!!
Never depend on adhoc seat reservation Wednesday & Thursday afternoon
bring your snacks with you from outside the station, the prices are doubled here
The new booking system doesn't allow Emergency booking "1 hour prior to train departure" unlike older system. Watch Out this trap ;-)
Reserving ticket to back home isA
It became a very beautiful now :)
i am the mayor
