    Big room nice balcony on the Nile, good location, there is many shops nearby supermarket, banks, money exchange .

    Breakfast ok, elevator problem you have to wait 5 mint or more lo get the lift some time we use service elevator, old furnishers and servis ?wait 2 days to get TV remote control and its not working.

  • Single

    Staff were very kind and helpful, and my view of the Nile was terrific. Wireless internet only available in lobby (free), which wasn't comfortable for working long periods of time.

    The hotel is old, and needs new painting, and deep cleaning. What could be cleaned daily by maids (sheets, bathroom, dusting) was fine, but some more substantial work needs to be done. Location is a bit noisy for Zamalek, as it is near a large intersection. With some work, this hotel could be really nice - good, big rooms and good staff.

    Be there is a bad experience... is everything!

    I've not liked nothing, not understand how it has 4 star..., is very old and damaged facilities, example: carpets, curtains, bathrooms, also, the receptionists night and the day few honest which offer. Supervisors attempt to solve, but very little have to...

    The service of the cleaning staff was not good at all. Air conditioning had to be repaired two times in a three night stay. Food of the kitchen is below any standard although the prices were high enough.

  • Couple
    7.8

    A very large bedroom, everyday cleaning, a huge bouffet with delicious food for breakfast, the fantastic view of the Nile and city from the 15th floor balcony and the Pottery Cafe.

    Renovation (eg. wall painting) needed and the elevator

  • Couple
    4.2

    The fact that they agreed to change mny room due to tv, fridge & air cond not working.

    Pathetic breakfast, staff who didnt know that I had already paid & pressured me to pay again.

  • Older travelers
    3.2

    We liked the omellettes and hot tea at breakfast. Apart from that, this is beautiful old building with lovely ornate furniture from days past but sadly it is being allowed to deteriorate and become really shabby...such a shame.

    filthy and below standard of 3 stars. The reception guy photocopied our passports "so I can do my job" we challenged this unecessary & illegal practice. Could not sleep due to the constant tooting of car horns 24/7 and the hard pillows (like pyramids!!). The bed linen old & grubby, bathroom has never seen bleach. We were really put off by the military personnel at the hotel carrying Kolaschnykovs (Russsian rifles). We also hated the security scanner we had to pass through each time we left/entered the hotel. The tablecloths were filthy & there were old foodscraps on the carpet in the dining room, which smells like a smoking lounge.

    The price is alright for that neighborhood.

    The hotel is more rundown than I expected. The location is not exactly convenient. WiFi signal is weak throughout the hotel, I have better connectivity at the cafe next store.

  • Older travelers

    The hotel is old but charming. The location couldn't be better - quiet, tree-lined streets with numerous nearby boutiques and trendy cafes/restaurants. City center is a 10 minute taxi ride.

    We have made a reservation with Amex card, and when we came to pay with it, they would not accept my card, as they could not charge it on American.
