“Something a little odd -- Is it the army?”
Reviewed December 7, 2011

Al-Masah is very nice, but has a slightly odd feeling about it. Since this was my first time in Egypt, maybe this is the nature of lodging there. The resort is rather opulent for my tastes: lots of marble, gilt, sweeping stairs, ornate crenelations. Any yet, the workmanship for such frippery isn't great -- misfit tiles, small annoyances in the room. It doesn't quite make the grade of elegant luxury. The price was very good - though I was there in conjunction with a conference, so the rate may have been artificially low. Room was clean, comfortable. The head concierge was extremely helpful, and went to considerable lengths to make sure I got where I was going and didn't get ripped off. Much appreciated. The hotel is run by the Army...the influence is subtle, but for example the security is high. That's not a bad thing in Cairo at the moment, but I think that might account for the odd feel of the place.

Stayed November 2011, traveled on business
