As you can imagine the hotel is not very full with tourists at this time. With that in mind they should pro. respond to a guests request and paid for room location of a Nile View. But alas no - even as a premier elite and the Nile view surcharge, and a quiet hotel a Nile view was not in the cards. Shame compounded by the fact I had specifically used the Marriott "Virtual Concierge" to ask for it separately. It turns out it was my email to the guest services at a later date that even prompted the fact that they had charged my extra as well. As a final nod to service it took several requests to even get the points forwarded to my Marriott account.
Any way the hotel is unusual in that it was a palace that was converted to a hotel and then built up by using two towers. It is a fave of the local dignitaries apparently - as friends who live in Cairo have mentioned.
Rooms were fine and bathrooms were pretty basic. But for one night it worked okay.
