The hotel was really nice, great view on the Nile, the rooms a bit outdated, we had the room service send us breakfast and it was a wonderful selection of really good food. All in all a great stay, I would recommend this hotel.

Superior in all accounts. Fantastic view of the nearby Nile, excellent food, service and amenities. Friendly and helpful staff. An oasis within the desert. Great home base for many tours or just visiting Cairo proper.
