We stayed for a week in mid February and found some exaggerations in the condemnation of the hotel posted by other reviewers, It is not a five star hotel but we never expected it to be for the price paid. They did everything as advertised and our room was clean and comfortable with essentials changed daily.
The breakfast buffet was excellent although the hot food provided at dinner was variable in quality and cold. However, enough alternative dishes were available to ensure that we didn't starve. The breads and pastries were always excellent.
Relatively few people were staying at the hotel at the time of our visit - which was a bonus, ensuring peace and quiet. The grounds and pool are very well kept. Staff were generally helpful and efficient. Note that mosquitoes can be a problem at certain times of year - be prepared.
It is really not as bad as some reviewers have suggested. We would probably not visit Cairo again but would consider a second stay if we did.
