Extremely pleasant hotel that was apparently recently renovated. Located in Zamalek along the Nile River with awesome views from either the River Facing rooms/suites or the pool or the Gym.
The rooms are nicely setup and most are 2 or 3 bedroom suites with a twist. If you've got the 2 bedroom suit, your card key opens the door to an apartment, but then, you need to use the same card key to get into your room, pretty neat if you ask me. You get the privacy of your own room and you can extend it to the living room if you want when your "apartment mate" is not in.
The locating is also good, in a neighbourhood filled with embassies so expect to see lots of armed guards along the streets. For food and shops, it's a good 8 min walk to the left after you get out of the main door of the Hotel.
Overall, a good hotel at an especially good price. It's location is great since it's very central and gets you to most of Cairo's best places in a jiffy. Not more than 40mins by taxi to any of the main places of interest even with Cairo's congested roads.
