    جيدة نسبياً .. ولكن قديم وبحاجة الى تجديد

    الاقامة كانت جيدة نسبياً .. الإطلالة على النيل جميلة جداً .. الاثاث قديم .. الديكور قديم .. رغم تجديد الغرفة حسب قول الموظف الا انه لا زالت قديمة ولم تعجبني .. واثار صبغ الجدار واضحة على اطراف سجاد الغرفة .. الشاور كان يسرب ماء للخارج قليلاً .. البلكونة صغيرة .. جلسات المطاعم الخارجية جميلة جداً ومطلة على النيل مباشرة .. في حال قررت الخروج مشياً على الاقدام قد تصادفك بعض الروائح الكريهة في النفق (الممر) الخارجي للفندق .. اللوبي بحاجة لتجديد الاثاث .. باختصار .. هذا الفندق لديه احد اجمل اطلالات القاهرة .. ولكن بحاجة الى التجديد والتطوير

  • 2.0.Poor

    Save your money and go elsewhere

    We were placed in a room where there was construction outside. When we complained, they told us that the construction would stop but it went on for the entire night. Hotel was dirty, we saw spider webs in the dining area and the cleanliness of the room was equivalent to that of a 3 star hotel we stayed at in Cairo. Service is horrendous - none of the phone extensions work and the phone on our floor (which we had to use when we got locked out) also didn’t work. Staff are not helpful, they will not offer any help unless you specifically ask for it and even then, you have to ask multiple times. For example, when we wanted to go to the indoor pool, the staff told us we had to reserve in advance. When we asked when the next reservation was, they then told us that they had space right now…. I don’t understand why we even needed to ask for them to tell us that information.

    Don’t stay, not worth the price tag

    Overall would not stay here again. First night I arrived I ordered a double jack daniels and coke it cost me 1500 EGP (100$)!! The most expensive drink I’ve bought in my life. They should at least tell you the price before ordering. I complained to the management and they didn’t care in the slightest. The rooms are old and outdated with a tiny balcony. Staff were rude and got the impression they don’t won’t to be working. Terrible customer service.

    Escape from Cairo here.

    This was the nicest hotel of our trip. It is so luxurious. It is a bastion of civility amid the nearby chaos and dust. The restaurants are a bit pricy, but sometimes it's worth it not to have to leave the hotel. All of the rooms have great views. We could even see the Giza pyramids from our room once the morning haze burned off.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Best hotel in downtown Cairo in terms of view and dining option. Comfortably away from Tahrir and its traffic. The only downside was a PCR cost. I've been told it'll be 1600 EGP and ended up paying around 2000 EGP pp due to some extra taxes and commission. Would be better to present the pricing upfront.

    Amazing Nile-front staying

    This hotel has amazing outdoor spaces, many spots to have coffee, tea, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The kebabgy was one of the best kebabs we have ever had, while the moroccan restaurant was also really really good. They would give us nice tables on the waterfront which is really the special characteristic of the hotel. If you are looking for a hotel not only with Nile-views, but to be able to sit right next to it then thats the one
