2/5 Poor

Business traveller
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Food was poor for such a supposedly top hotel, it's pre-cooked reheated and microwaved, boring bland international food with mediocre Egyptian 'specialities'. The check-in experience was not exactly friendly and the check out employee downright rude. She totally ignored me for a full 10 minutes - could at least have said 'I'm going to finish what I'm doing, and will be with you shortly' and then she refused to refund the Euro deposit I had given in cash back in the same form, saying it would all be in Egyptian pounds instead. Eventually and grudgingly she handed it over in a mixture of dollars and Egyptian pounds. She then forgot to give me a copy of my bill and was exceedingly ungracious at all times. The guy in the business centre is also in need of an update. Telling me to pray to Allah to get the internet to work... give me a break.

This hotel is a Gem in the of Cairo, many room opportunities available garden view (but their gardens are marvelously planted and designed), city view and finally nile view. I Tried the Zamalek building full Nile view at the 9th floor, the view was breathtaking especially at the sunset and early morning. I recommend this hotel for anyone who appreciate old style entrance and garden hotels but with many updates and all recent facilities are on the use.

We booked a room with a view of the Nile, which costs more than otherwise. We couldn't enjoy that view because the north-facing balcony overlooked a very noisy highway and a huge billboard that flashed its colorful scenes into the room late into the night. A less expensive room with a garden view would have been preferable. Otherwise, it's a lovely hotel. The garden is the best part, I believe.

The check in process was a bit slow due to the long queue of check-in ….
