Although I had telephoned the hotel to arrange transport, we had had such a poor experience earlier on this holiday with transport to and from another Giza hotel we were still rather nervous when our train arrived at Giza station (from Luxor) early in the morning. But we were greeted and escorted to an excellent BMW limo and arrived at the hotel shortly afterwards. I expected to have to wait until the afternoon before being able to have a room, but we were surprised and delighted to be greeted at the curb and taken immediately (before checking in) to a 15th floor corner and balcony room with views of the Nile and the pyramids. Wow! We had booked and paid for the holiday in the UK and didn't expect what seemed to be VIP treatment. "Check-in" took two minutes, in our room, and then, at 9am, we had the great pleasure of chilling out for the rest of the day, enjoying the excellent Lebabese restaurant by the pool and visiting the very old-fashioned Egyptian Museum on the other side of the river. We had another very good meal in the Lebanese restaurant and an excellent night's sleep. Breakfast the next day (included in our room price) was very good and there was no problem booking the limo to the airport in the early afternoon nor with a late check-out (for no extra charge). Excellent service, for not very much more money than our previous and not so impressive hotel close to the pyramids. Strongly recommended!
