Arriving at the Hotel courtesy of an exceedingly friendly driver of the Courtesy bus, I was hanging around reception for some time. As at the last visit, the three gentlemen at the desk appeared somewhat confused as to what to do and whom to serve. The left desk, no the right desk and so forth. Anyway, got a room in the basement which was quite nice. good size room, spotlessly clean and with a nice bathroom. I was offered to be taken to the room by an incredibly service minded porter dressed in traditional outfit including a Fez. Very service minded with a great smile also. Very nice man.
No free drinking water available though. Had the buffee dinner which was quite nice and the service was excellent. I especially enjoyed the deserts a great selection of delicious Baklava and more European style pastries. Breakfast was equally good.
Le Passage is a good transfer hotel, it is close to the city (bad if you want to go shopping) but very convenient if you have an early morning flight to catch. Le Passage is a good hotel.
A word of warning, I went with the by the hotel recommended taxi to City Stars, the trip there costed 75 LEP but the return trip only 35. Most hotels in Cairo charge an inflated rate for taxis. Be aware, A taxi from the airport to the city should cost maybe 60-80 LEP, but drivers often also ask for 150-200. Insist on the meter being used or just leave the taxi.
