Everything was as to be expected & more for the hotels rating, the price was good value. The rooms were very clean and the bathroom looked as though it was brand new (see photos). We stayed in the executive room which was two single beds pushed together to make a double/queen - the air con was great which is necessary in Cairo.
The staff were very good, the airport transfers that we arranged were also very good & punctual and the breakfast served was a great variety of food, get in early though as a lot of it goes quickly.
I didn't believe we were in one of the better parts of Cairo from the rubbish on the streets and the general hustle & bustle but after seeing more I was very happy with our accomodation & location. Some great little shops around and plenty of laundry services (around AU$10 for 5kg - the hotel charges per item). Wi Fi available for free which is always a bonus!
Not 5 star accomodation - you would need 4 seasons etc for that experience but considering we didn't spend a great deal of time in the room it was perfect for us (we were out doing tours most of the time).
There were areas for guests to relax on balconies / reading areas which was a nice touch - one recommendation is "don't drink the tap water" or use it to brush your teeth anywhere in Cairo, we got more then we wanted after re-filling bottled water.
