The team was friendly, beds are fresh and clean, towels are clean, bar fridge and TV. Food and drinks are very expensive with 12% service charge and 10% tax charges - you can get cheaper drinks and food close by so it was not a train smash. Overall the hotel was okay, free wifi included

Rooms clean and warm there are fantastic views of the Nile despite the existence of the hotel in the center of the city, but it is calm and very cooperative Staff. Breakfast is weak, but the hotel is close to many restaurants

However, it does have complimentary wireless internet located on the 18th floor (bar/dining area) of the hotel. The room was small and clean. The staff were friendly... More
