Stayed for 5 days 4 nights - some staff seem to find it a problem serving you, even when the staff ratio seems 4 to 1. Swimming pool area is being refurbished and very noisy at times; if it's windy you will get covered with sandstone dust from builders cutting stones. Rooms are very good and comforfable with sat tv and mini bar. You will need a small fortune to buy a beer or two in the lounges as they can cost up to £5 a can/pint. Make sure you have plenty of small notes/change for tips as everyone expects a tip/baksheesh from the barman to the man who presses the button on the lift!
Overall, it's a well-situated and appointed hotel for the pyramids but certainly not 5 star. Quite a drive into Cairo from here and the roads are an experience!More
