From our room, we could even see the majestic Pyramids in the distance! The rooms are large and comfortable. The breakfast buffet has a large spread, with a lot of... More

This hotel is amazing, it is clean, friendly and modern. It looks great as well. The rooms are clean. The food is delicious. The spa is excellent, and the service. The view from my room was great, where you can see the Nile and the city. After the meetings, I would chill in the pool at about 4:00 to 6:30,... More

Hotel staff are very helpful and, when request room change for better river view they promptly fulfill my request,fantastic spa and outlets, but little bit boring. Never ask for taxi from the hotel as they are over priced instead you an wake little steps and get very sheep taxi with the same level.
