This is a relatively new (3 years old) 4 stars hotel in a central ( but also quite) location in Cairo, it is only 2 KM from Cairo antique Museum and lively Cairo centre. The hotel is on Zamalek Island on the banks of the river Nile. The hotel has a nice (but small) pool and an open air Jacuzzi. It also has a good SPA and good exercises room on the top floor. It also has a very nice café with excellent views of Cairo on the roof top. But you should also know that the hotel does not serve alcoholic drinks ( which is not a problem in Cairo, you can find it at any touristic restaurants around your hotel).Right in front of the hotel you will find many restaurant ships (not moving) featuring a variety of food with good quality, and the prices ranges between U.S.$ 20 – 50 ( without alcohol drinks). You can also ask the hotel to reserve a Nile cruiser dinner with show for ($ 35-50). Alternatively you can take a white taxi with meter fro the street in front of the hotel to Zamalek district 5-10 minutes drive to enjoy a variety of nice restaurants that is used to receiving tourists and expatriates ( you can ask your reception for names and directions) the average per person is also between $ 20- 40. A usual tips is expected and is around 10% of your bill (in addition to the service charges indicated in your bill) with a minimum of EGP 10. The hotel staffs are very friendly and the receptionists speak variety of languages. I would defiantly recommend it for short stays in Cairo and for business as well.
