This hotel has the most amazing location and view of the nile. The Indian and Moroccan restaurants are a must try The Sud and grill restaurants are average, they lack service standards.

View from room balcony was breathtaking at all times of day and night. Breakfast food was extensive in variety and excellent in quality. Landscaping was superior. I especially enjoyed local cuisine and live middle eastern music at Kababji resturant. Everywhere in the hotel, staff were courteous and helpful.

Obviously, this is an older hotel, but the rooms are decently sized and have been upgraded. Big flat screen, very good beds and a bathroom with rainshower at more than full throttle. Reception was speedy and very friendly. In general staff is polite, forthcoming and willing to help. Setting on the southern tip of El Gezirah is quiet with all...

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.
