Positive Reviews

Rave restaurant reviews

Visitors are highly impressed with the variety of restaurants at this hotel, each offering a different ambience and menu. Even the breakfast is said to be simply amazing. Guests especially love the river-facing restaurants because of their picturesque setting. Many venues also have outdoor seating, highly enjoyable during good weather.

Ample amenities

Guests like that the hotel offers many facilities and amenities throughout the property. The wellness facilities, such as the 24-hour modern and well-equipped gym, or the luxurious spa, seem to be very popular with travellers.

Awe-inspiring views

According to guests, most rooms feature excellent views, but it doesn't hurt to ask for a river-facing room or placement on the highest floor possible, as these tend to be the best. The hotel's waterfront location yields to stunning views over the Nile.

Negative Reviews

Small space

Many guests complain that some of the rooms feel smaller than expected. Bathroom size tends to be a problem too, with the showers far too cramped for most visitors.

Sub-par service

There are many instances where travellers are not pleased with the service they received during their stay. In addition to slow restaurant and room service, guests generally find the staff here less-than-attentive. Even the front desk staff is not always responsive to guest needs, partially because they appear to always be busy.

Needs some updates

Some parts of the hotel and various rooms could use updating and a makeover. Many guests feel the rooms are a bit too dated for a luxury hotel of this standard.
