I've stayed here a couple of times now, once for work, once for leisure. As a fairly new hotel, and since the revolution, it's been very quiet. However the hotel is very modern, spacious and extremely clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful..... once you have their attention!
We were met at the airport and taken through immigration formalities...which aren't complicated...but if you don't know, it's helpful to have someone guide you.
It's handy being close to the airport, but there's nothing around the area.
Again, the hotel arranged a trip to Giza for us. As we only had half a day to go (for my mother aging mother to have the opportunity to see the pyramids) I explained very clearly to the concierge that we DIDN'T WANT TO DO THE USUAL TOURIST TRAIL OF PERFUME AND PAPYRUS SHOPS. However, we got taken to a papyrus place.... I made sure we DIDN'T go to the perfume place! I know it's not really the hotel staff's fault, but I was a bit disappointed that we could have had more time around the pyramids when I had specifically made the point of mentioning it. If you don't want to bother with that, I suppose the answer is to say it to the driver or guide who picks you up.
In all, the hotel was great. They could do with leaving instructions about where to find all the light switches in the rooms, but we were very comfortable. I liked having the option of a bath or PROPER shower. Nice breakfast....yeah, all's good really.
