This hotel with historic associations is, admittedly, looking a little tired (it will be undergoing major renovation soon). However, the location is absolutely fantastic, giving a wonderful view (particularly at night) onto the Nile which beats that offered by any of the monolithic 5 star hotels in the city. Staff were extremely helpful and spoke perfect English. A great little hotel which deserves a visit.
