"If cheap is what you want then don't expect luxry hostels!"
The hotel was in walking distances of all banks and currency exchanges, sadly not all of them would exchange my rands from South Africa! BOO! Anywho, it was a struggle being hispanic because everyone thought i was Arab and got upset when ever i spoke english (SO EXPECT LANGUAGE BARRIERS in the TALAT HARAB district and all around Cairo). There was an awesome sandwhich shop, hardly any internet cafe's around (if so, waiting perioud for 5 computers), the metro was helpful but plan ahead cuz i got lost a couple of times. Plan to get tickets to aswan, luxor or other a day ahead! TOO many shoe,purse and clothes stores all in one district! The Egyptian Museum was near by too as well as pretty Mosques and Churches. Enjoy!

Food - plentiful, a huge selection, something for all tastes - from home comforts to the exotic. The buffets (breakfast and evening) are eye-popping!
Staff - they were extremely pleasant and courteous, from the beach attendants to the waiters; there wasn't a weak link anywhere.
The beach - spotlessly clean, plenty of loungers to choose from. A restaurant withing yards, but who are also happy to bring it to your sun-lounger.
The water - Pools = vast, spotless, heated/normal, no shortage of loungers. "Lazy river" = great fun and for us it was a daily must. The sea = clean, clear and calm. I cannot find fault with any of it.
Room - very spacious, excellent room service and housekeeping, air-conditioning & fan.
Other - we dined one evening at the on-site French restaurant - Alexander's; first class dining and well worth a visit. My wife went to the Spa for a massage and loved it!
There were many different nationalities staying there, who helped make it a wonderful stay. The atmosphere is a very friendly one, without night-time noise (at least to my knowledge).
The clientele ranged from elderly couples to young couples, to young families; from what I saw, there's something for everyone.
We (my wife, daughter and I) agreed that we would definitely go back.
