We usually stay at this house. It's clean and comfortable . The view from the room window on the nile river in the morning every day is good start. The reason that I didn't give 5 stars is the concierge is not helpful.

The hotel is round and sits on a promenade on an island in the middle of the Nile. So every room has a view of sorts. The view if you have a good Nile view room is fabulous. We had room 1820. I think room nos 20 and 21/22 (a 1 bedroom suite) have the best Nile view. High floors...
