Well, I´ve been there for only one night as part of my tour thru Cairo and Giza.
The hotel was offered by the Memphis Tours Egypt (loved them!) and my only night there was good despite the front desk woman that was servicing me and my guide when I arrived was terrible and slow and didn´t tell me about the internet that is paid and when I was at the room another front desk member called me to go back there because that (stupid) lady made a copy of my US Visa, not my photo page of my passport. (doesn´t she knows the difference between a photo page of a passport and a US Visa??? c´mon...)
The room it quite good, very big, comfortable bed, clean and big bathroom with tube, cable tv, balcony and fully carpeted, except the bathroom.
Have in mind that smoking is allowed everywhere in Egypt so, if you are a non-smoker, be sure to ask for a non-smoking roon when checking-in.
I haven´t tried the room service and restaurant for lunch or dinner, just for the breakfast that conveniently starts at 6AM. The options are fantastic, thousands of known and unknown stuff and everything fresh and on the right temperature. At the restaurant I had my 2nd bad experience with staff once I was with my big bag, the waiter at the entrance saw me coming in, waited to me to have a seat to tell me that my bag should be kept outside the door at the corridor. (Why didn´t he tell me that when saw me coming?) and he said that in a very unpolite way. Stupid!
The pool is amazing but I didn´t have time to try it.
Also a smoking area besides the pool is a very warm and beautiful environment to spend some time.
I didn´t cross the hotel gates by myself anytime, the world outside the gate is like a war zone, I was really afraid, unfortunately Egypt is feeling hard the price of the political crisis and every penny is welcome but the city is forgotten. Sometimes I felt was inside the Resident Evil game city Silent Hill. Sad but true.
Anyway, good property for short staying periods, you´ll easily find best options in best neighborhoods if you´re traveling for honeymoon or a romantic getaway or travelling with your family.
For me, as a solo, no big complains.
