Mind you, the smaller rooms are kinda too small, but nice and clean. My husband and I had requested a double bed and we got two single ones, so they moved us to a larger room on the third floor, with 3 balconies, nice sea view and quite nice. The breakfasts were nice. From there is easy and cheap access to the Sheraton Street were are all the inexpensive (and mostly hassle free shops) and restaurants. The staff are friendly, specially the night shift reception guy. He recommended us tours to take and took care of the arrangements. Do not expect fliers or brochures of the tours, as in most of Egypt. You can take your pop or water at the room. Other hotels will confiscate your drinks and food! The coffee room next to reception is nice. Mind you, it is common for employees all over Egypt to be smoking at work, so don't be shock when you find the guy there smoking, or the taxi drivers smoking. Your left overs of food you can take it to the Sheraton Street to feed the dozens of stray cats. We had a very nice time there. The only place nearby to eat is across the street to the left on a pizza kinda restaurant place. Prices are good and food is tasty. There is nothing else where to eat nearby for lunch or dinner. One night there was loud music there at this restaurant, but we just turned on the heating and no problema. This is a nice hotel, for budget travelers. It is not luxurious but it is cozy and clean. There is no elevator. There is free Wifi at the reception area.
