This is not the first time for my visit, but due to the fact that I have stayed there more than 50 times during the past 6 years, so I am unable to count the exact number of my stays.
I will start my review with the 1st and most important factor for my several stays:
During 6 years of going there around 6-8 times a year, none of the Personel working there has changed, same faces, same persons in all departments, maybe some of them have been promoted, but all of them remain in the same hotel, for me, as a continuous guest means: Perfect Management, great staff willing to go beyond your expectations, people looking for stability at their work place.
Anyone working there is willing to help you and serve you all the way and capable of providing all sort of comfort to make you enjoy your stay.
The Rooms and View:
One point to take into consideration while booking in this hotel: it is a very busy hotel the whole year, in summer due to the tourism season from all over Egypt in addition to the different conferences and workshops and seminars held at this hotel, if you plan to book there, book early as much as possible to guarantee a very good room with sea view or Montaza Palace view, even if you have to pay more, but the view worth the extra money you will pay.
If you are alone and not with family or children, you can choose normal size rooms, but if you have children staying in the same room, you MUST have as much as possible the bigger size rooms even if you have to book one of the different types of Suites they have.
If you can't afford the price of Suites, book 2 connected rooms for you and the children. But in all cases, the best rooms is the ones with the views as mentioned earlier.
It is around 25 minutes from Al Nozha Airport, and 30-45 minutes from down town, but you will enjoy the " Promenade" by taxi or car or bus on the " Corniche" or even a short walk on foot. And around 20 minutes to Four Seasons San Stefano Hotel and Shopping Mall.
The hotel can arrange all kind of trips, there is a small but very nice beach in addition to a Swimming pool and kids pool.
There is plenty of super markets and restaurants around and next to the hotel, where you can buy mineral waters or juices and Pepsi, chocolates, ice creams and cookies.
Very wide selection of buffet breakfast, beach and pool menus are of great choices and variety, kids special menu is one of the best kids menu in an hotel.
The Italian restaurant is more than good and you must try it many times.
Room Services is wonderful with delicious Egyptian, International dishes.
Prices of food and beverages are very reasonable in all the restaurants of the hotel when compared to other hotels in the city, as well as alcholic beverages.
If you like coffee, you have to try the turkish one, at the Trotoir Cafe at the Entrance door, very nice relaxing cozy place, where you will enjoy the sea breeze.
This hotel is highly recommended whether for business or leisure, solo or with family.
In this hotel you and your family are: In Good Hands.
