I stayed here in July for four nights at the beginning and end of our trip to Egypt - travelling with my 20 year old daughter and 17 year old son. We had two rooms and definitely did not have renovated rooms but we really liked the hotel. The rooms were clean. The location was great, the bar/ restaurant was fabulous. Excellent bar staff and waitresses.
Most of the staff were wonderful but the reason I am inspired to write this review is because of an earlier review of the "night receptionist". Mohammed was the only jarring note of our stay. The other two desk stafff were great, answered questions, offered help. Mohammed was obnoxious. As the earlier comment stated, he was all about his "palm being greased". For example, the other staff would order a taxi and have you pay the taxi Mohammmed insisted you pay him an inflated price (how much do you want to pay to go to the pyramids?) and he took the money and passed on, I'm sure, a small fraction of his "price" We paid Mohammed his "take" and then paid the taxi drivers again as we felt he was scamming the drivers. A jarring note to an otherwise good hotel.
