First for the positives the rooms have great views of the Nile. Secondly take breakfast outside with the birds fluttering and the boats cruising past on the Nile is a must. The check in staff are very local in their custom. Speaking on the phone while trying to serve you and then helping another guest they call it multi tasking I call it slow and poor service. Also be careful if they say non smoking room it usual means it will be non smoking because you don't smoke. Check the room for he obvious give away clues like an ashtray, matches and the stink. Go back down and ask to change. They do this and tell you you have now got an upgrade. What they forget is you saw the last room and the new one is exactly the same. Aside from these local difficulties it's in a nice part of town overlooks the Nile and eating breakfast outside is a major plus and the Internet is free. The car service by the hotel although expensive is immaculate. Took a tour of the sites with an Egyptologist on a morning I had free - not just a local tour guide - not cheap but he is highly knowledgable and has masters degree in Egyptoligy.
