My adult daughter and I stayed at the hotel for two nights in December 2013. We had a King room with fabulous view of the Nile -- perfect for my first trip. The room was modern and beautiful. It also adjoined a large living room, seating area (which we didn't actually use).
As others have noted, the location is centrally located and very convenient. But I particularly wanted to comment on the terrific service that I received from the front desk staff. They helped me arrange a car and driver to tour Saqqara and Memphis. They also helped me arrange a car to get to New Cairo and explained the destination (a bit complicated) to my driver, as I don't speak Arabic. Mohammed and Achmed at the front desk were extremely helpful and friendly. They gave me a wonderful first impression of Cairo.
Would definitely stay here again. (Only ate breakfast one day which was fine but can't really comment on food service).
We used Hilton Honors points so the value was very good.
Didn't use the spa or health facility. The spa was being renovated.
