I usually stay on the nIle when I travel to Cairo, but my work required I stay near the airport this time.
The room had been booked by work, so I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. The Hotel is claen, pretty new and has all the mod cons you would expect.
Check in was easy and the room was very nice.
Being a business traveller I book hotels for a couple of reasons, good location for work, cleanliness and a gym, all of which were pretty much spot on.
I only have a couple of gripes. I am a big believer in customer service, but not in-your -face methods. I was rung several times to be asked, how my food was and if everything was alright, which is nice, but can be annoying. When I did have an issue, the problem was solved pretty quickly.
I did make the mistake of leaving my 'Do not Disturb' sign on the door when I went top work, a little common sense or even a phone call to the room may have prevented them from having to service my room at 9pm when I returned, but this is a small issue.
All in all a good stay, not the best location if you are a tourist, but good for business.
