We unintentionally spent one night in this hotel after our aircraft got diverted to Cairo Airport due to a medical emergency on board.
We arrived in the middle of the night and it took the crew six hours to arrange visa and hotel for all passangers. The circumstances were not ideal, to stay the least, we were all tired and were unable to take anything from the aircraft and we were affraid what kind of hotel they would take us in the middle of the night.
It is very close to the aiport, approx. 5 minutes drive by bus. The hotel staff were very friendly and polite and seemed a lot more professional than we expected after having a couple of bad experiences in Egypt during our earlier visits.
The hotel was very clean and good quality. It is also huge with several wings and hundreds of rooms. The lobby area is beautiful with several restaurants and small shops.
We stayed there for half day, had a decent lunch and got transported back to the airport to continue our journey.
Did not have much time to explore the hotel services or its vicinity but I would definitely book this hotel if I retrurned to Cairo for any reason.
