We first stayed here for a night in December before embarking on a Nile cruise and liked it so much that we just returned for a week. I really can't think of a better place to escape the bleak mid-spring we have been having in the UK, such an easy journey too from either London or Manchester, guaranteed sunshine, one hour time difference, excellent value for money when compared to similar hotels in Europe, the US or the Caribbean. It felt like arriving in paradise. The hotel is immaculately clean and has the friendliest staff I have encountered anywhere in the world (and it all feels like a genuine desire to help, never did we feel the slightest pressure to tip). No detail escapes the German manager's beady eye ... Plenty to do as well for all age groups: badminton with the charming Abdul Salem, tennis at the nearby Jolie Maritim, felucca and motor boat trips, excellent (if expensive) spa treatments, drinks at the Old Winter Palace (we were glad we had chosen the Hilton), dinner at the atmospheric Sofra, an inspiring visit to the ACE animal hospital and of course as much culture as one can take in the heat. By early April, with the temperatures nudging towards 40C, we were only too happy to spend much of our time lounging by one of the two infinity pools, where birds swoop and wails from the minarets echo down the Nile.
After a week there were a few little niggles: the hideous graveyard of cruise ships next to the shisha bar, the somewhat industrial bread served at the poolside restaurant, the rather pokey bathrooms. However none of these amount to much and we can't wait to be back!
