We are Australians who have just returned from touring Egypt - While visiting the Islamic part of Cairo our guide kindly showed us this wonderful boutique style hotel.
WOW - every room has a different theme - it really is very unique and special - each room is a piece of art in itself. I only wish we had stayed here - I console myself by saying "next time".
I know my biggest problem will be choosing which room - as they are all spectacular.
When I choose a hotel I rate cleanliness highest followed by position this hotel certainly meets both these needs.
Another important consideration is the bathroom - every bathroom in this Hotel is large, marble, excellent sized & with fully enclosed showers.
Surrounding this Hotel were very genuine and super friendly locals although it was busy and noisy as we were walking through the surrounding area I was amazed how peaceful and quite inside the hotel itself was!
I will also say this is a good area to shop, not as intense and much better priced - an example is a good quality scarf that other vendors elsewhere in Egypt would begin at 180,000 Egyptian pounds and higher here the starting price was 30,000.
As mentioned in earlier reviews there has been a change in management (the Hotel is still owned by one of the original 2 owners) and I had the great pleasure of meeting the new manager Nahed Hamy – Nahed’s attention to detail is most impressive.
Nahed could not have been more helpful and giving of her precious time.
All the staff are super friendly and helpful, I have no doubt this Hotel will satisfy those with the highest standards.
