We were pleasantly surprised at check-in with complimentary fruit drinks, guava in our case. And they were delicious. We arrived after taking the night train from Luxor and were able to check in early without any issues - unlike the Intercontinental which did not let us check in early. So that was a plus right there for Safir. Room was okay, nothing special, definitely not 5-star if taken by western standards. Wifi only worked in the lobby. We opted for dinner at the buffet since there wasn't much around to each other than McDonald's. The buffet was just okay. It wasn't every expensive so I guess you get what you pay for. The location of Safir is not great. You would need to take a taxi everywhere. But I guess that pretty much goes for any hotel in Cairo since public transportation there sucks or nonexistence. Also haggling with taxi drivers throughout Egypt is a pain in the rear. However, when we asked the front desk about having to go to the airport early the next morning. The staff was able to schedule us a taxi at a fair price. The staff also had ready for us two breakfast boxes. That extra service really made our stay at Safir memorable.
