This is a great hotel in a good location with helpful staff and I'd recommend it usually. At present I would recommend carefully checking the situation locally as on my most recent stay at the end of January i decided to leave after it was attacked by protestors. That said the hotel staff were very helpful with this and it will hopefully only be temporary. I've stayed near here a number of times over the last two years and this is the first time I've experience trouble but the hotel is very near Tahrir sq so as long as protests continue there is the potential for the property to be affected.
In short check before travel but if things are fine definitely stay in this nice and well located Nile side hotel.
