BORGONI, Mario. National Hotel, Cairo, Egypt.

Original Hotel luggage label, printed by Richter & Co, Napoli, c.1923. 160 x 110 mm.
This luggage label was created from a poster by Mario Borgoni in 1905 to advertise the opening of the Hotel. As with the poster the label included all the Hotel details on the reverse side.
The Hotel had accomodation for 250 guests making it bigger than any other Hotel in Cairo save for Shepheards. The Hotel was considered far less snobbish than Shepheards or the Savoy. It offered Suites for long term stays and families and it dispensed with the requirement for evening dress in the dining room.
The Hotel closed in the 1970's.
