From the moment we arrived [after passing Cairo typical security to get in] we felt very welcome. Staff were really friendly, and we got a room despite arriving way before standard check in time [before 8am!]. We also got a king bed without problems, despite being two guys - seems no issue here at all, which is great.
Rooms are not huge, but well put together, and the bathroom is really nice - sadly it was not 100% clean, but that was solved within the morning, perhaps it was related to us checking in before time, who knows. Rest of room was fine.
Staff organised a pyramids tour for us, and we also used the spa, which was very nice. Last but not least, the Moroccan restaurant for dinner as well as the breakfast were of really great quality, and at a very decent price indeed.
We want to go back to Cairo, and I would stay here again for sure.
