We stayed here one night only. We received a welcoming drink on arrival and were able to relax in a spacious and beautiful reception area. Due to the efforts of our tour company representative, we received a free upgrade to a Nile River View room. Therefore check-in did take a little longer.
The rooms were spacious and the river view was definitely worth the wait. The bathroom had a decent size bath tub with overhead shower and glass doors to ensure everything else stayed dry. We did have a problem with hot water running out (in the triple room) during the evening. perhaps this was because we were 3 people trying to shower in quick succession.
The hotel is quite centrally situated and we were able to walk around to explore little shops. However, be prepared to be harassed by taxi drivers, shop owners etc. We found that a brisk walking pace and complete lack of conversion of response worked better than a smile and 'no thank you'.
We ate at the Maxime resturant which is a short walk (12min) from the hotel. To find the Maxime, walk out the hotel and turn right. I would recommend you order Egyptian food from this resturant because they dont do international food as well as Egyptian food.
We had an early flight the next day and the hotel prepared breakfast boxes for us. It consisted of a selection of cold meats, breads, jams, yogurt, juice and fruit. I would stay here again.
