My friends and I stayed here for 3 nights.
I had emailed the hotel to organise an airport transfer from Cairo airport to the hotel, which was around an hours drive (at 1am) for 5 people. The taxi was there on arrival, and we arrived at the hotel at 2am. Check in was very easy, and we were in our rooms within 10 minutes.
The room was nicely laid out, very clean and tidy. There was a very comfortable queen sized bed, and the bathroom was very clean with a nice shower with good pressure. We had a little patio area outside our room which was really nice, with some relaxing chairs.
Breakfast in the hotel was ok, there's enough choice for anyone's breakfast (the crepes were really good), but the coffee cups could have been bigger.
We had dinner in the Romeo and Juliet restaurant, which was really nice, but they forgot to put 12GBP on our bill for the drinks, and asked us for it the next day, which I didn't particularly like.
The next day, we ate in the cafe above the bar, and had a lovely meal with drinks, and the view was stunning.
You can hear the noise of the traffic at night, but it's not that bad. Wifi is only available in the lobby, but it was a strong fast signal, as well as being free! The swimming pool area is very nice, and the gardens are very well tended and green.
The best thing about this hotel is the location, you can see the pyramids from most places in the hotel, it's amazing!
If I come back to Cairo, I would stay here again.
