“Hotel with a kitchen with very large rooms.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

The room was always clean (unless I had the do not disturb sign on), and the staff are extremely prompt to answer any requests. In the reception area there is a fridge with cold drinks, which can be relatively inexpensive to buy water and juice. During my stay the air conditioning was quite uncomfortable and could not sleep, when it was turned on. It's good to turn it on for the day when we do not have to room to cool down. Unfortunately, it happened that support it, and then turn off in the middle was very stuffy. The breakfasts were very repetitive. Every day, toast, boiled eggs, cheese, jam, honey, yogurt and tea. If someone has the time to prepare something better for yourself. The apartment was a fridge, toaster, kettle, crockery and cutlery.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed for nearly a month at this hotel for my work since it was the best situated apartment hotel in Maadi Degla, Cairo near the office and school. What was best was the attitutde of staff and service. However, that did not compensate for the very poor conditions. The apartment itself was adequate. However, during our stay there were frequent power outages and the electrical wiring in the apartment itself was old and outdated. Whenever we turned on the water boiler or microwave, more than not the fuses popped. The air conditioning system was very old and loud, too. It was more like being close to an airport -- as a consequence we rarely used it.

Perhaps the worst experience was the fire that happened in the room below ours during the night. No one alerted us and only the smell of smoke indicated something bad had happened. As it turned out, the management contained the fire but didn't see the need to alert the tenants. We have three small children. So it undermined our trust in the facility and the management's judgement. The smell of smoke lingered for a week and the hotel offerred no compensation.

For purely safety reasons, I do not recommend anyone stay at the hotel until it is upgraded -- particularly in regards to the electrical wiring. The location is good but the risks and inconveniences are just too much.
