I stay here every time I have to go to our Cairo office, which is literally right next door in the Nile City mall. I always put up a fight with colleagues b/c I prefer not to stay here. The hotel service is awful, the restaurants pricey and the staff in the lobby are nasty. I always tensed up each time I walked in and out, as the guys would make cat calls. I would not stay here again, if I had it my way.
Who ever heard of a front desk that didn't exchange currency? I was told I had to wait 2 nights for the bank downstairs to open (they close in Fridays). It's a joke.
The rooms were nice, however. And the location is convenient. Breakfast was also good.
