    location of the hotel

    yes, alot. let me start by saying that the service was poor and not professional for a 5 stars hotel. Breakfast offering is very bad and can't be compared to a 3 star hotel even. Swimming pool was crowded with people not resident in the hotel and were given priority while the resident in the hotel were not able to use the swiming pool due to crowdness,

    This was a very luxurious hotel. It was nicely decorated and furnished. It had an very attentive staff, great dinning options and the pool was very inviting.

    I was really unhappy with the fact that smoking was allowed everywhere in this hotel. The air was filled with smoke and some type of fragrance that was used to cover it. If you have allergies or are sensitive to smoke and perfumes, I would not recommend spending much time in the common places, which is unfortunate because they are otherwise very nicely laid out. The room I had was non-smoking and did not smell of smoke at all.

    The hotel is just few minutes walk from down town Cairo. The services and staff is very friendly, whether reception, or restaurant, or cleaning rooms. I will definitely book there again when I go to Egypt again.

    The restaurants in the hotel complex are extremely high, that's the only downside.

    Very good

    Beautiful hotel , nice areas to enjoy and lounge. the rooms could use upgrades, they were nice but not like the photos on website, rooms extremely worn.....

    The Budda Bar requires smart casual when going to eat at the restaurant even if you are staying in the hotel. We didnt wear shorts but attire was casual but I assume too causal, so no jeans

    Fantastic view and clean accommodation.

    A bit of a walk to the city centre (Tahrir Sq.). Better to catch taxis on the road though (taxis waiting in front of the hotel will rip you off).

    many restaurants and nice view

    very long check in and check out., Price paid is 6% more than booking price., Hotel staff and security asking for tips for doing nothing., must pay $10 to get in the sauna.

    Good

    The view, nice territory, nice outdoor pool. Quite good for Cairo.

    We ordered a breakfast with the room service, we were told that the breakfast will arrive in 10-15 min. Finally it took about 1 hour and they didn't bring coffee, saying that coffee machine is broken...The price for the breakfast is around 20 euros.
