The friendly and helpful staff both at the front desk and in the coffee shop make this hotel really stand out.
The rooms are generic in style and average in size, but clean and comfortable.
The free WiFi worked pretty well. The Indian restaurant is very good indeed.
Two weaknesses prevent me from giving it an 'outstanding' rating:
1. The gym, while clean, is small and cramped. The equipment was in good repair but limited in scope. If the gym could be doubled in size, with additional machines and perhaps more windows, it'd be great.
2. Guests were smoking on my non-smoking floor, to the extent that the corridor was blue with the haze. And generally there is a smell of smoke throughout the hotel. I don't know what the hotel can do about this in the short term, since it is probably a general issue in Egypt. One suggestion could be to segregate linens and pillows by smoking and non-smoking.
