It costs a bit more, but you certainly get more than you pay for. We went with the club lounge and had great service all around and when we checked in, we got a complimentary upgrade to a suite. We had dinner in the Egyptian grill restaurant and more food than my wife and I could eat and it was all fantastic tasting. 40 British pounds is more than it would cost locally, but hardly exorbitant by hotel standards for the quality. Great views of the Nile everywhere but is set apart from the downtown by a 10 minute walk, so If you want to be smack in the hustle and bussle, there may be a better choice, but for a quiet place to get away at the end of the day that is still central to everything, it's a great choice. You should definitely walk a few minutes and barter for the hotel than take the taxis from the hotel, just as withvjust about every hotel in the world.
