Best Views in the city
The main reason to book this hotel is for the views, being right on the Nile. We happened to be there right as the Cairo Film Festival was going on, but they treated us just as important as the festival attendees, which was awesome. The only irksome thing was, for some reason, the front staff called us multiple times offering us various perks, which usually would be the best thing ever, however we got a call at 9:30PM saying we have a free dessert available and i'm like "why are you calling at this hour? there is no reason to wake us up." But overall, you're there for the views of the nile and the infinity pool, which again, makes this the place to go to if you're in cairo.

Bad condition
The lobby looks great, but that’s about it. It is in bad condition and quite dirty everywhere. Everything is extremely overpriced and of low quality to western standards.

Even though, I arrived late (11pm) room was not ready. And after waiting almost 1 hour, they gave me a room with partial Nile river view even though I paid for a full view room.
