I have read some of the complaints for Oasis being about the distance from down town Cairo however I felt this was a godsend as the pollution and noise levels in this city are phenomenal. After spending the day in Cairo it was welcome relief to get back to the hotel away from all that. There is the free shuttle bus service which we used. Granted they don't run at necessarily convenient or regular times but we just adjusted our itinerary to cope. The other option was to haggle a taxi back. We did encounter a persistent taxi driver who didn't have a clue where our hotel was and didn't know the name of the road as we said it in English, but tried to get more money to take us (where we don't know). We promptly got out of that taxi and instead went for dinner and waited for the late shuttle bus back. (tip - take a business card form the Oasis reception as it has the hotel name and address details written in Arabic which you can show the driver.)
Our room was very spacious and comfortable and the aircon worked very well during the heat of the day, and the heating was great when the temperature dropped in the evening.
Being December and a bit colder we didn't make use of the pool however we did enjoy lounging on the sunbeds around it, though it was a case of chasing the sun in the afternoon and changing beds as the sun moved. We also enjoyed the massage options available as a final relaxation ploy before returning home.
We only ate at the Italian restaurant in the hotel once as we ate in down town Cairo the rest of the time. The food in this restaurant was generally good and reasonably priced.
The breakfasts however were plentiful, with lots of options, including a 'diet corner'. If you are near a supermarket or small shop selling water stock up as it can be pricey at the hotel.
Overall the staff were very friendly, the service and the accommodations were great.
