This hotel used to be the Meridien and the Grand Hyatt. But due to tourism at an all-time low, these chains pulled out. It is now being operated by the owners.
My wife and I enjoyed a lovely anniversary at this hotel while we work in Cairo. All the rooms are Nile View rooms, so that is a great plus. The room was a standard king size room, but very nice and luxurious, with a balcony on the pool side overlooking the Nile. The only downside to this hotel at the moment is that there are no guests coming to the hotel. They are operating at less than 10% capacity. One employee said 3%; another said 30%, but it seemed to be more the former than the latter. As a result, many of their restaurants are now closed. And the breakfast buffet is very skimpy and minimal, although they still have an omelette station.
The health club was the highlight of our trip. The outdoor swimming pool was very warmly heated even when it was truly cold on Nov. 22, and nobody would think to swim outside; yet, we enjoyed a nice swim. The jacuzzi, the steam room, sauna, etc. are all so relaxing and nice. The only problem is that they have separate facilities for male and female. Since it was our anniversary, we would have really liked to have enjoyed the facilities together, but oh well, such is the culture here in Egypt.
Overall, a very nice stay and the services were very friendly and polite. I'm sure that once tourism comes back, this hotel will do well with all its restaurants, amenities, and facilities.
