Reviewed 9 January 2013

The isolated location of this Novotel is both a blessing and a curse. It is situated near the south-most point of Zamalek Island, so winds from the Nile will clear away the smog and smell of Cairo. It's reasonably quiet here as well, with a 5 minute walk to the Opera House subway station. That said, there's nothing to eat...

Hotel is in a good location, which these days means close enough to the center but just out of the traffic caused by the closing of Tahrir Square roads. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean, hotel staff were professional and friendly. Breakfast was good though choice a bit limited. There is no free wifi in the lobby as most...

The hotel is excellent for business stays - clean room, quick check-in and check-out, Internet in the rooms, professional service, etc. When it comes to staying with the family, it needs some more work to do. For example, the variety & flexibility in the breakfast has to increase; the bathrooms and toilets have to be designed such that they have...

We've been there for five nights: overall service was good and professional (although not perfect). Buffet Breakfast is good. Great location: just a few minutes walk to Midan Tahrir. No free wifi, but available at an insane high price (why?) - but you can use some computers for free in the lobby.

We stayed in this hotel for three nights. It has nice views and the location is convenient if you want to visit the Egyptian museum. Hotel staff was friendly and the room was clean. It feels more like a business hotel than a family hotel but we did not mind.
