The Hotel along with its veggie Indian restaurant was a boon for me for a first time traveler like me to Egypt.
Everyone in the Hotel right from the owner (Mr. Oberoi), his disciplined / courteous staff & also the chef were very co-operative. The owner gave me many references (Indian contacts in local companies) as he was a member of Indian Association in Cairo.
The staff (especially Madam Aziz, Madam Amir, Mr. Ahmed & Mr. Walid) were extremely co-operative. The tour packages offered by them were also good.
These guys made my going around the city very easy by translating all my customers address in Arabic & also sometimes taking appointments for us, even when we were not taking the Taxis from their Hotel !
The chef Jitendra Singh made every single indian cuisine for me from Alu Paratha in the Breakfast to Dal - Khichdi in the night.
Wifi is good. Rooms & their bathrooms were also good, But these things hardly matters when one's need for Indian food & language barrier is broken in such an alien land where English is hardly spoken.
The hotel has an fantastic "Roof Top" garden restaurant, serving drinks & shisha till late night everyday. The crowd visiting never made me feel that i was in an Arabian country.
Overall the hotel is awesome & a blessing in disguise for Indian visitors in Egypt.
