What this hotel lacks in 5 star luxury it gains in 5 star service. The staff look after you from start to finish and can not do enough to help. Meals are very good and rooms very clean. Natasha is a brilliant lady who runs the hotel, I really enjoyed my stay and would fully recommend it to people who want to experience peace and quiet in Egypt.
