Positive Reviews

Unique location

The lovely views over the Nile River are one of the hotel's best attributes. Guests like to spend time enjoying the sights, finding great restaurants nearby, and making use of the public transport to get them to the many great tourist attractions in the area.

Awesome staff

The hotel really creates a vibe where visitors can take time out to enjoy a break, while the staff take care of all the rest. Guests say the staff are professional, yet friendly, and always willing to go the extra mile when needed.

Spacious rooms

There's no doubt that there's plenty of space in the rooms for everyone to enjoy a little peace and quiet. Travellers like that they can relax and unwind after a fulfilling day out on the town.

Negative Reviews

Facilities are dated

Travellers comment on a variety of areas that can benefit from an upgrade. Furniture is really dated, and mattresses and towels have seen better days. Guests feel it's high time for these items to be replaced or refurbished.

Overall cleanliness must improve

Complaints range from unacceptable levels of cleanliness in the bathrooms to less than acceptable in the restaurant. Guests are adamant that far more attention must be paid to the overall cleanliness of the entire hotel, including the rooms.

Very noisy property

With the hotel set so close to the highway, guests often find that a good night's sleep is difficult to come by. They suggest that the owners put in some additional effort to soundproof the rooms, thereby ensuring a more peaceful stay.
