This hotel appears to belong to a bygone era, but has the comforts of today. The staff a lovely, very helpful, english is not their first language but they try to please.
Buffet breakfast was aa great way to start the day, they had a wide variety of carbohydrates, egyptian breakfast and the obligatory omelette maker.
Dinner menu was international, but perhaps made by people who have not left the country, but we didnt leave hungry.
The biggest downside was no Wi Fi in the room, only in the lobby and i never got my ipad to pick it up, although the iphones did.
Traffic noise and horns are also a concern, but the air conditioner and double glazing madefor a good sleep...ear plugs from the plane helped my husband.
Expensive, but I am happy we stayed.
