Stayed for a couple of days and dined at the Sabaya restaurant (Lebanese cuisine). Amazing view, food, hospitality and atmosphere. Nice king bedroom with a view of the Nile that I have never seen before (I am Egyptian living in Cairo!)

Its a renovated hotel but not recently, the staff are friendly, a lot of security proceeders on each entry, a lot of activities in the hotel the rooms are average, overall its good but not a "wow hotel" needs renovating again otherwise they will lose costumers soon.

The rooms are wonderfully big with a nice balcony providing a view of the city (I am sure there were rooms with a Nile River view, however we dined at the restaurants which provided us with that view). Pool area is beautiful and tidy. No towels laying around. Shopping in the hotel is great and so is the hair salon.... More

Well this hotel is just in the best place it can be, you can stay in and enjoy the restaurants within the great view of Nile river, loose or earn some money in the casino or just stay without doing any of those but again relaxed and comfortable. Be careful while going out on your own, Cairo is not safe... More

However, this is a fabulous hotel right in the heart of Cairo. The rooms are clean and spacious - but definitely have a 90s feel to them (striped wall paper, patterned... More
