From the very beginning the service in the hotel was amazing. Upon check in I was given a wonderful glass of mango juice, which was more than welcome after 24 odd hours in transit! The staff were so polite and accommodating I really wasn't used to being offered so much assistance.
The room was lovely, very modern. Loved the bathroom. The view was just breathtaking. I think I was on about the 16th floor with a Nile facing room and after I'd settled in I realised that I could also see the pyramids too! There was also a delicious tray of baked sweets waiting for me which were delightful.
Breakfast was brilliant. Full table service, lots of food, more than I could eat myself but delicious nonetheless! You must try the traditional 'ful' dish. It's spelt 'foul' on the menu which made me dubious but my waiter insisted I try and it was fantastic.
Unfortunately I didn't get much chance to utilise other facilities in the hotel as I was sightseeing during the day and falling asleep early in the evening jetlagged. But I will next time and there definitely will be a next time.
