Dining of a world-class standard

Guests always praise the delicious and high-quality food served at the in-house dining venues. Many travellers are especially impressed with the variety of cuisines available at the hotel. Each restaurant gets a recommendation for a visit.

Worth the view

Visitors rave about the views from the hotel. From most rooms, one can see the beautiful Nile River and many offer a lookout towards Cairo Tower as well. Guests enjoy the balconies in the rooms as they allow them to admire the views and get some fresh air at the same time.

Stunning event setting

Judging from the reviews, the hotel remains a popular setting for both business and private events, especially weddings. Guests praise the event and banquet halls as well as the catering staff.

Negative Reviews

Ready for renovations

Most guests think the hotel is starting to show its age, judging from the dated decor in the rooms and the old bathroom designs. Other public areas seem to need an update as well.

Smokey smell

Non-smoking travellers feel uncomfortable at this hotel due to the prominent smoke smell. According to reviews, the hotel allows smoking in the lobby and the casino, which annoys some travellers, especially when it seeps into other areas of the property.

Disappointing service

The staff does not give the warmest impression to guests. In reviews, guests complain that their service requests are responded to inefficiently. Many visitors also find the front desk staff to be unhelpful.
