2010 NYE party hosted in Buddah Bar was memorable. Perfect organisation, attended by a mix of young successful Egyptians and international customers, international music with a good DJ (cant remember his name but i heard about him in Paris in the past) and a great way to have fun for New Year in a city that does not celebrate it...

Sitting in the Buddha Bar in near darkness aside from the blue light of the bar counter and a few candles you can look out onto the Nile and see the boats slithering around like mayflies with their coloured lights. In the daytime there is the Jacuzzi which is swimming pool sized which looks out over the Nile from the...

They are definitely trying hard here to please and from what Ive read of previous reviews improve all aspects. The hotel is well located, well maintained, communal areas and gardens clean, very nice Spa with good treatments.

This hotel is in one of the quietest locations in Cairo while still being very central. It is medium sized so not overwhelming with lots of restaurants. It is a short taxi ride to the northern end of Zamalek, where there are more trendy but not too pricey restaurants. Very friendly staff.

From the moment we checked in we were treated like royalty. It was the best check in and check out experience we have ever enjoyed. Everything in between was equally perfect from the food and drink service to the room attendants.
