We stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon trip.
The hotel was very safe, clean and the service was very good. They had even gone the distance and put a bouquet of roses in the room for us upon our arrival which was a very nice touch after such a long flight. The hotel was located centrally in the town and we really didn't suffer from anything their other than our own ignorance about travel in this part of the world.
Our only complaint was that we asked the valet to get us a cab to take us to the pyramids. He flagged a cab, and then our driver took us to a small city outside, and not to far from the real park entrance. We then got scammed into renting 2 camels and a guide because "the park doesn't allow anyone to enter on foot or from a car." Our guide was great and he got us some pictures with us and the pyramids which I'm sure the normal visitors will never be allowed to get (our guide was close friends with the armed guards that turned their heads while we did some photos) and we got some cheesy photos with us on top of camels. We also ended up tipping our guide who showed us all around the pyramids (even where the normal tourists get dropped off in busses and taxis) and we also bought some kind of "rare oils" from another vendor that they had to take us to.
All in all, the hotel was a great, clean refuge and I can't say if the cab driver and the valet were in it together, but when we showed up with the tourist stamp on our foreheads, they didn't miss a beat. If we're ever in this part of the world again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here.
