Positive Reviews

Central location

Guests find the location of this hotel convenient. The property is ideally placed for those who plan to explore the city centre and its attractions. Plus, there is shopping, dining spots, and riverfront strolls, all nearby.

Enjoyable tours

The tours arranged by the hotel staff go down as a treat. Guests also appreciate the option to enjoy excursions to the country’s famous pyramid complex and – further afield – to Alexandria.

Helpful staff

Much of the feedback concerning the staff at this Cairo city-centre hotel paints the service in a good light. The majority of guests find the staff is welcoming and friendly as well as more than happy to help with things like travel arrangements and dining recommendations.

Negative Reviews

Noisy environment

The downtown location of this hotel certainly has advantages but it also comes with a pretty significant drawback – noise and lots of it. Guests find the street noise excessive thanks to an apparent lack of proper soundproofing.

Lacks breakfast area

Although guests tend to enjoy breakfast, they do note that the hotel doesn't actually have a dining area. Breakfast must be eaten in the room or the reception area of the property, an inconvenience for some guests.

Not all rooms are up to scratch

Renovation of this property appears to be ongoing but those rooms that are yet to benefit from any attention attract criticism from guests for their dated appearance.
