On our recent trip to Cairo, arriving 9/11/2012 - the same day protests began at the American Consulate's Offices, we felt safe and well cared for at this lovely hotel. The staff members we encountered were very kind and helpful people.
The grounds were impeccably manicured and the hotel was clean, modern, and grand. The gym and spa area were being remodeled while we were there, so they were closed; but the pool was inviting.
There is an open area on the second level with seating on one side and a billiard table on the other.
There are restaurants on site serving a variety of foods (from hamburgers to an international buffet). We enjoyed room service the most! That could have had something to do with the amount of traveling we had been doing and were were just tired by the time we had seen what we wanted to see during the days. We enjoyed the room service and lounging in our comfortable room/sitting on the balcony.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, safe place to stay in Giza. We had a lovely view of the pyramids from our suite's balcony.
