My husband and I stayed at this wonderful hotel on 2 occasions during stays in Cairo in December 2012 and January 2013. We stayed at another hotel on our last 2 days in Cairo and really wished in retrospect we would have stayed here.
This hotel is located in a very exclusive and quiet part of Cairo- very necessary in this chaotic city. A plethora of restaurants awaited us- budget, medium priced and very classy and interesting shops.
The staff were wonderful. I always got quick emails back when corresponding from Australia and staff were very very helpful and attentive during our stay.
The room was amazing with a hugh comfortable bed, beautiful period furniture and a nice balcony and also fantstic bathroom. Everthing was immaculate and actually worked unlike some places in Egypt.
The breakfast was fabulous and staff.
The only down side to this hotel is that when you actually come into the front door you may think you are in the wrong place as it is located on the 5th floor and you have to reach it via a miniscule lift that will only take 2 people at a time and their 2 bags.
The other down side- again -( not really their fault) is that on both times that we organsized the airport transport from the hotel the driver was late. We were about 30 minutes late after getting out visa and our bags the fist time we got the pick up and still had to wait over 20 minutes for the driver. I was just about to get a taxi when he arrived. The second time the same guy was 15 minutes late. He sad he was sorry- again- and mumbled something about our plane being late- it was actually a bit early!!!
As I mentioned it was nothing to do with the standard and comfort of the hotel but they need to perhaps talk to the driver about this or chose someone more reliable.
The owner and staff need to be congratulated on a very high standard.it was more like a 5 star hotal than a 3 star.
