We booked our trip through europeanvacations.com. Every hotel they recommended was excellent, including this one. We were a little concerned about going to Egypt, but the hotel and their staff made us feel very comfortable, and very safe. We were a little scared our first night, as there was a very loud siren that seemed to go off randomly. In the morning we found out that the siren was just the masque located near the hotel signaling it is time to pray. I would not suggest going anywhere on your own in Egypt, unless you know the people and the area. The hotel was very accommodating in providing us a tour guide/body guard to make our trip comfortable. I would highly recommend our tour guide, Nasir (Not quite sure how to spell his name, but that’s how it is pronounced). He was so great and took great care of us! Anywhere else we wanted to go, the hotel immediately had a chafer for us. Unless you’re accustomed to Egyptian food, I would not recommend anything unfamiliar on the restaurant menu, and the service was great at the restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. If you do go to Egypt, I would suggest arriving in the afternoon, so you don't have to ride in the dark, trust me, arriving in the daylight will ease some worries you may have.
