This hotel provided a wonderful experience with us being here for the first 3 days of our "Exploring Egypt" tour. The refreshing lemon drink on arrival, welcoming greeting from hotel staff whilst we waited for our room allocation. The friendly greetings at all times when moving around the hotel. Lovely, courteous, friendly staff at both breakfast and dinner. Bonjour was my greeting in the morning coming into breakfast. Food was extremely tasty, with ample choices that would even suit the most fastidious diner. Asking for something like nuts or a banana at breakfast was always dealt with a smile, and even on our return for our last night and next morning, two staff asking at breakfast if I would like a banana, both bringing me one each, and us all laughing. You always know when you have been on a really good tour and have had lovely accommodation, when you become sad on departure morning. We had had a power and water outage in the very early hours of the morning we were to leave after the initial 3 days, and on our return we were all upgraded to suites!! Oh and were they beautiful suites. The housekeeping staff always made me feel very special and nothing was a bother, and we shared a couple of laughs together. The bathroom products were first class. I know on Trip Advisor reference to the party boats going up and down the Nile River during the day and evening were extremely loud with music and singing going on, but that was part of the experience and fun, and they didn't go all night, probably finishing about 11 or midnight. I couldn't speak more highly of this hotel and would recommend it highly.
