                                    A very nice hotel. Access to free wireless internet. A lovely breakfast.

                                    The shower over such a narrow bath is very awkward to use. The whole bathroom ends up flooded with water.

                                    The service by all the staff was super and, with the car and door security we felt safe. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable.

                                    The balcony is tired and need decorating and the furniture needs replacing but, of course, the view is fabulous. The net curtains were filthy.

                                    As most of cairo hotels, its old. Althought internet (limited speed) is free in the room but u have to use cable. No wifi except at the lobby; Who use cables nowadays !

                                    This hotel is keeping the same stander since it opened, the staffs there are not asking always for money, like other hotels in Cairo do.

                                    Location is quite nice! You can see Nile River, Cairo Tower, and great night view. / Break fast is very good. You can take salad, vegetables, many types of bread, fresh juice, and so on.

                                    I used InterContinental with my friend, and I send message through "Booked.net", "We prefer two beds". But at first, the hotel show us a room with one big bed. I seid front desk, "please give us two beds", then the hotel changed our room.

                                    The hotel is a good deal; The restaurant selection and food are excellent. The Nile view from the 14th floor was very nice. The location was about 5 minutes walk to the Egyptian Museum and maybe 15 minutes walk to the Cairo Tower. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cairo.

                                    The prices are misleading; instead of $265 a night, it was $334 a night with taxes and service charges added in. And it didn't stop there; it was like this at the bars and restaurants as well. I probably wouldn't have minded paying a few extra dollars knowing how much something costs going in, but it seems a little deceitful.
