Due to the current situation in Cairo, the rates are good and the availibility is also good. I stayed in a king bed Nile view room with breakfast and was not disappointed. The room was nice, the view was great and the breakfasts were excellent.
The staff were very helpful and freely gave advice on Cairo. I recommend using the hotel car for transport to and from the airport and locally. While more expensive than a taxi, you are at least quoted a price and are freed from the relentless haggling for everything everywhere in Cairo that I found extremely tiring. I tried the hotel bar which is good and the Italian restaurant, which I enjoyed very much.
The one critical thing I would mention is the hours for the hotel pool, which are 9 am to sunset - exactly when guests would be out touring. I was very disappointed that I was not able to use the pool after a long day out or before bed. The reason for this is hard to comprehend and I find the hours for the pool not reasonable or normal for a hotel of this quality.
I do however recommend this property and will stay there again.
