Hotel location is perfect, near to the metro station, 10 minutes walking will be in Eminuno port and Egyptian Market and many other places to visit. Front office people are warm welcoming and friendly, they are cooperating and helpful for any arrangements or information.

Helpful friendly staff , middle clean , noisy because of tramway , you cannot sleep even in other side rooms , noise of something like generator or chillers and water pumps in the sixth floor , the announced rating misleaded me to chose such hotel
