The staff was friendly, not so much the front desk but the room service guy, the restaurant staff and the security ware very nice. THe food was delicious. They had a great buffet at night and for breakfast. I also ate at the a la carte area (nice). The pool was ridiculously huge , never seen one quite so large. Overall very pleased!!

Great find. The asst manager of this great boutique hotel went out of his way to make sure that we not only had a rewarding stay but also that we would feel safe and comfortable in one of the most interesting cities in the Middle East. We felt lucky to have made a decision to stay here.
Excellent property. The hotel is very nice with many amenities. Several different restaurants to choose from with various menus and all very good 5 star Hilton quality food. It is built so that all rooms overlook the Nile River. Rooms are very clean and comfortable and the housekeeping staff are very accommodating. Hotel has a pool and a spa with a Thai masseuse available. A few clubs with dancing on weekends at the night club and a small casino in the basement. Security on the property and in and out of the property is also very good. We felt very comfortable throughout our stay. They do not nickel and dime you to death like so many other hotels nowadays. But then again, I am partial to the Hilton chain of hotels. The concierge on the other hand leaves much to be desired. It is the only reason I gave the staff four stars instead of five. He stands next to the check in desk. Most of the time I found no one there. Even when we called they were hard to get ahold of. They provided very little valuable input to help with local sights. There are no brochures. They printed pages of current local tours which we used as guides. We did their Dinner Cruise which was excellent. There is another desk next to the front door, for tours from an outside company that provides cars, taxis and tours, but they are more expensive. The concierge should have a nice desk with comfortable chairs for guests to sit in, plenty of accessible or available information, a good staff, smiles and patience.
The people at the hostel were incredibly nice and helpful. I loved my room and hearing the sounds of Cairo at night. The neighborhood was very safe and had great coffee houses that are open all night. The hostel is close to the subway station. I would highly recommend this hostel.

My mother and I stayed for 4 nights. The Reception were fantastic and would go out of their way to help you. Word of warning: Do not book any tours through their Reservation Manager as the organised guide and tour was a disappointment as they didn't take us to all the attractions that were promised.
Nice, clean, comfortable hotel minutes from the pyramids. Reasonably priced with friendly, attentive staff and manicured grounds. Good restaurants within and a complimentary shuttle into Cairo several times a day. Would stay again.
