This is a great hotel at an excellent location at the southern tip of the island of Gezirah/Zamalek. There is no traffic noise (a rarity for Cairo hotels) except for the little boats that flock the Nile and pass the hotel with blaring music but in my opinion this only makes it more atmospheric. Good and efficient service, lovely food. Friendly staff but not very personal. Our (standard) room on the 9th floor was well appointed, clean and, an absolutely great bed. The only drawback was the balcony which was tiny (only one chair would fit there) and not very inviting. There is no room for breakfast on the balcony but it could be that other rooms have more spacious balconies? The other drawback is that the prices for the extras are quite steep (think upper European level). The swimming pool area looked very inviting but we had no time. Judging by the small ashtray inside our room was a 'smoking room' however there was no smell at all! So non-smokers should not worry - at least that was our experience.
