Stayed 4 nights for business in Cairo.
The hotel is stunning. Spotlessly clean, staff genuinely helpful and friendly. The rooms are well appointed and the bed really comfortable. large shower area in the en-suite. TV in room has 277 channels, a real eclectic mix! Complimentary fruit and water replenished daily.
The hotel has around 14 restaurants each offering a different cuisine from Mexican, Thai, French etc. I really recommend the Italian though. There are four pools and a health club available for guests to use.
Due to the current troubles the hotel is extremely quiet; so some areas are closed, disappointingly the outside pool bar. They also rotate nights when the restaurants are open so 3-4 are closed nightly. Also be aware drinks are not cheap 2 alcoholic drinks £184 Egyptian pounds; (£18 sterling). They do accept payment in US dollars, but be wary of what they charge this way; you are better charging to your room and paying on departure!
Don't let the reported problems in Egypt put you off; Cairo is a vibrant; manic city; and I saw no evidence of any issues during my stay.
