My wife and I stayed one night at this hotel on the 15 January 2013, res no. 22510-26463686. This is a nice hotel by Egyptian standards and is a comfortable place to put your head down before you go up Mt Sinai early in the morning. All Egyptian hosts are friendly so I'll say no more about that. A nice stone unit for my wife and I and it was very cean and tidy with all the basic facilities you should expect. It had a heater and airconditioner and believe it or not a mosquito net that is needed in winter. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom of a decent size. The shower was hot but they still suffer from the usual Egyptian problem, how to control the water after it leaves the shower spout. It gets all over the floor and the shower curtain seems only an after thought, however, I have become use to this situation in Egyptian hotels in my travels around Africa and the Middle East. The food at the restaurant was very good but the table hygiene could be much better for the rave reviews they get. I was disappointed that you are not given a choice to choose from for lunch or dinner, it was just served. I also thought a little expensive considering the restaurant is in need of renovation and presentation. The manager arranged a guide and a breakfast box for the climb up Mt Sinai and gave us a call so we could be ready to go on time. Overal this place is a good place to stay the night but a little renovation and attention to detail could make this hotel a top place and truly justify its bed price that is a little high for budget level facilities. I don't want this review to put anyone off staying at this hotel as it is quite good by Egyptian standards and you will enjoy a comfortable stay.
