As you walk through the foyer area to get to the lifts, you cannot help but be impressed by the display of Egyptian wares. From colorful papyrus pictures, to statues and mosaic art. The hotel is in a great location, within close walking distance to the Nile or the local markets. Everything that you need is within close walking distance... More

When I turned on the shower, the water was brown and I had to let it run for 10 minutes to get the water to clear up and get warmer. The room... More
