This large hotel with several restaurants, cafe, bar, pool, gift shops, massage is near the airport but not near Cairo's attractions. It calls itself a five star hotel and according to the number of service personnel and the hotel amenities this might be accurate, though the rooms themselves compare more with a four-star hotel in Europe or North America. Staff were clearly well-trained but there were some misunderstandings that could have been spared if their English skills had been better, especially at the front desk.
Beds are comfortable, room soundproofing is adequate, air conditioning worked well -- as is essential in summer! The laundry service was convenient.
The restaurants are fairly expensive, in keeping with the hotel. We had several meals there and enjoyed the buffet breakfasts, the Thai restaurant that has some of the best Thai food in the city (though more expensive than others), and found the meat dishes to be done very well. Because Ramadan started while we were there, it was helpful to know that one of the three restaurants would be open before iftar with a regular menu while another had a special iftar buffet.
