HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

Situated at the southern tip of an island in the Nile, it means that most (if not all?) rooms have a direct view of the river. It doesn't really matter anyway, because you can sit and watch the Nile from almost everywhere on the hotel area. Standard rooms are nice - clean and spacey - and includes a minibar and...

There's all you'd ever want in terms of food, Egyptian dishes like fool, and then There's French toast And so many other things. Huge selection, and view is amazing. Definitely a...

The building is a little dated, like most in Cairo, but well maintained. Had good variety of restaurants, which is a good thing as it is not easy to go out for dinner. Probably the best thing is the location.

Not a great place to stay if u r a solo female European traveller. Staff pretty much ignore you and seems like a great hardship for them to even speak to you. Breakfast is a nightmare - don't leave the table to get more as they will have completely cleared your table and sat someone else there. If you manage...

What a sad let down after the Sofitel Old Cataract and the Sofitel Winter Palace. I had booked a luxury room with lounge access. The welcome to the hotel was pathetic. Had to carry our bags in, take them through security and up to the bell desk. No one offered to help. At a luxury hotel, one normally expects that...

Had one of the most amazing trips of my life to Cairo and staying in this hotel made it extra special. Breakfast in the morning... delicious. Housekeeping... immaculate. Staff... fantastic. Could have sat on the balcony for a week looking out at the Nile, just outstanding!
