This was the starting hotel for our Gecko's tour and we stayed for three nights before the tour. We couldn't fault the staff. They were friendly and helpful especially Sam in the lobby cafe.
The rooftop bar was a highlight, great place to gather in the evening and grab some snacks, drinks and try some flavoured Shisha at pretty reasonable prices. good view across the top of Cairo. Wrestling seems to be the flavour for the big tv screens around the bar though.
Breakfasts consisted of meats, cheese, bread, eggs and local egyptian choices such as foul (pronounced fool).
We stayed twice during the course of the tour so got to see two types of rooms. the first was in great need of maintenance, with running toilet (we had to turn the cistern off each night and remember to turn it back on to use it). The air conditioner made so much noise it was not usable. The fittings in the shower actually fell off and smashed and the tap was stuck on by what looked like chewing gum. The second room on the 8th floor was much better. It looks like they are slowly starting to renovate the hotel from the top down. unfortunately we were four nights in the first room and one in the second.
if all rooms were like the second, this would definately have been worth a rating of four. if staying extra nights on a tour ask for a renovated room or consider other options. Its a shame as the staff are wonderful.
