                        some time i have nothing to do i mean its to quite

                      • Group of friends
                        5.8

                        It is a good value for money hotel.And with an okay breakfast.Hot water any time for a relaxing bath.

                        Compared to european standards its a 3 star hotel, maybe 2 star at some countries.Not very clean for european standards again... but quite clean for Egypt.Expensive prices in cafeteria-restaurant.(example: a bottle of water costs outside the hotel 2,5 egyptian pounds but in the hotel 15 egyptian pounds.)

                        5.0

                        1. Some staff are impolite concerning with tips. 2. The hotel-arranged taxi demands higher than normal

                      • Couple
                        5.0

                        The breakfast and nothing else!

                        Rooms are really ordinary for that price! Room not really clean and small and with no balcony...Even the location advantage cannot be used as the hotel travel agent just tries to fleece money out of you even to visit the Pyramids in Giza.

                      • Family with children
                        6.2

                        close to the Pyramids, 24 hour security and reception.

                        A long way from Cairo city centre. Breakfast was fair but restaurant food was poor.

                      • Group of friends
                        7.8

                        Was Fairly close to the pyramids, Staff were helpful, and breakfast good,

                        The pool was a green colour, didn't risk it,

                      • Single
                        7.8

                        Staff was very pleasant. Location of hotel is good.

                        Meal in breakfast was not very good. Cleaning service was waking me up every morning at 8 am

                      • Family with children
                        3.8

                        Nothing really, just good for an emergency stop.

                        Right next to noisy mosque and road, taxi manager never met me as agreed in the morning, so confusion with cab driver. Do not get this hotel to collect you from airport, they sent a salooon car to collect us , family of four with 4 big bags!

                      • Family with children
                        6.6

                        It was convieniantly close to Giza Pyramids.

                        They tried to charge me again for room paid in advance. Proof of Deposit was e-mailed to them a week before we went and confirmation was received from them that they received payment. However when we booked out I was told to pay again, when i refused he insisted that I did not and had to pay, only when I took out proof of payment and copy of confirmation e-mail he suddenly "found" the copy they had of payment! Breakfast was not great, but at that price I guess you can not expect much.

                        All from begin till end rooms are very old this is not 4 stars hotel. First night terrible to much noice in morning the wake you up to clean room I go out for meeting 11 am and come back 11 pm room not make up. I ask why, whole explination than the change to suite more terrible no good internet on room like they told in ther information and when put airco on the water drop on carpet this is really the badest 4 stars hotel I got in egypt really change this rate to 1 star maybe no star

                      • Group of friends
                        8.8

                        The staffs in the hotel are really nice!we have no time to find the mail box before leave so they send the postcard for us

                      • Family with children
                        7.0

                        Staff were good. Allowed us a very early check in. Facilities are good inside he hotel, god air con, shower, internet was free. But could be better if there was a kettle and ironing board provided. The food is good in the restaurant as is the breakfast provided. Room service is prompt but different staff can quote you different price on occasions which can be annoying. None the less I would still recommend the hotel.

                        No kettle and iron board. You are forced to use room service or cooffe shop any time you want a cuppa. Same with being forced to use laundry service to get your clothes ironned. The noise with the 24 hr traffic can be annoying but still able to enjoy a good night sleep. Can imagine hotels closer to down town cairo would be noisier. The city never sleeps

                      • Couple
                        5.8

                        Good view of the pyramids and friendly staff

                        Facilities are old. It's more like a 2-3 stars hotel.

                      • Couple
                        6.6

                        The staff was very helpful. The location was close to pyramids. The price was ok.

                        It is on a busy street, which is noisy day and night. We had mosquito problems in the room, even though we were on 6th floor. Apparently the backside of the hotel is crappy area. We had to buy mosquito sprays on our own, which hotel should have provided themselves.
