The brochure said 50 min transfer, but it took 1hr 40mins both ways due to other drop offs and pick ups. On arrival the lobby/reception area blows you away, it is very plush and a lovely place to drink in the evening listening to the pianist. The food is the best we have had in our 9 visits to Egypt...
