What do you think does it mean when two residents of Cairo (with their own flat) go to this hotel in order to relax, to taste the atmosphere of this city, to get spoiled, to enjoy every minute, to sit at the banks of River Nile and breath deeply this environment? I think this is in short, what everyone wants...

A wonderful stay. Close to all tourist attractions. Plenty to see. Tahrir sq is a 10 min walk. Hotel was great. A little pricey with regards to food. Absolutely no complaints, would recommend to everyone.

The carpeting is worn, the halls dingy, the plumbing poor. Our elevator was briefly stuck. Second, the hotel lounge had nice staff, but the facility itself was dated and...
