This hotel is located in Zamalek, a nice area with some shops around. It makes you feel really safe, and the staff is friendly and willing to help at all times (literally, all times. We needed a cab at 4 am, and there they were!). The room was spacy and clean. PS: check the little boutique by the reception, they have great deals for your souvenirs!
From the roof terrace this hotel is 5 star, with a central location in Zamalek on the banks of the Nile. With outstanding views over downtown Cairo and the mountains beyond. The views of the river Nile outstretching for miles down the river and over towards the Giza pyramids are fantastic. Part of the terrace is covered part open where I enjoyed great food and drinks and shisha, with a wonderful atmosphere and service. The managers are always on hand without being obtrusive, mixing and smiling and quietly organizing their smiling staff. All I had to do was just relax.
An island on the Nile River, Zamalek is known for its gardens, embassies, and ambassador homes. Egypt’s longest concrete building, the Cairo Tower, is in Zamalek, as is the only Opera House in the country. Zamalek also has many waterfront restaurants and casinos. Three bridges connect the island to other areas of Cairo.
