The facade of this building is on an Egyptian theme, including a pyramidal shape and some large exterior statues. The service is very good, and the rooms on the upper floors are spacious and comfortable, with good views out the balcony. The hotel has just a couple of restaurants, but it attaches to a shopping mall with many other options....
