The worst experience ever! The staff are very rude & unprofessional specially the hotel’s duty manager called Ahmed Shaybob . He don’t know how to talk politely with the guests He don’t know the rules of his work & he called the guests in the room’s phone with a very rude way! He ruined our vacation because of his bad behavior! Seriously this hotel is a disaster . I don’t recommend it to anyone!

Short but sweet and romantic. Very friendly and efficient staff especially Maître d'hôtel Mohamed and Front Desk Nagham. We particularly enjoyed the Junior Suite taking the corner overseeing the see and Saad Zaghloul square. Wonderful delicious breakfast buffet ❤️
