its very nice and comfortable hotel the staff very friendly and the prices better than another hotels near by.. you can go shopping by walking around hotel.. everything is good in this hotel EXCEPT THEY HAVE TOO MANY SPORTS TEAMS AS A GUEST.
Older hotel with gracious personality and style. Not a cookie-cutter hotel; affords lovely feeling for Heliopolis. Rooms are pleasant, beds are very comfortable. On-site restaurants and cafe are lovely. Especially wonderful breakfast buffet.
Particularly friendly, hospitable and, indeed, charming staff. We enjoyed our stay very much and would happily return to this hotel if further travel to Cairo becomes possible.
The hotel was in close proximity to the airport and as we flew in late at night it was ideal, check in was no problem but when we did get in the room we were presented with 2 single beds when it was booked for 3 people. There was no comments made
at check in as to there only being two beds, obviously we needed at least 3 singles. Being late at night we asked for an extra bed and were given a mattress that was laid on the floor with a sheet to cover it and an itchy blanket. The following morning i went to reception to ask to be moved rooms and was told 'That wont be a problem please come back later so that the rooms can be cleaned' Returned later only to be told that there was no available rooms and that the only rooms that had double beds in were in the Suites, not happy!
With that aside the other bad points were:
There was a couple of small shards of glass underneath my pillow which i cut myself on,
The mattresses were like stone slabs to lie on,
The furniture was very outdated as was the welcome guide/leaflet (looked as though they were from the 80's)
However: The staff all seemed pleasant and happy to help where possible,
Nice cake shop just outside of hotel,
While it is a good distance outside Cairo city center, the metro is a very cheap and easy way to get around the city.
I would recommend this hotel as it was fairly inexpensive but i WOULD NOT class it as a 4 star as published, i have stayed in 3 star hotels which are much cleaner and better equipped.
hotel is near the airport but not close enough as we were made to believe.
the buffet breakfast was all cold. and i mean COLD. no coffee in sight and, it took a long time to come.
not accessible to taxis--will call one for you ( the
the best one is when we had dinner, was given a check with no $ amount. didn't sign it till we know how much. on check out the following morning, another two and a half bucks were added for another kind of tax. can anybody explain what "other charges" is? the waiter forgot how to speak english at that time.
the wake up call was on time!!!
at the beginning, the staff was so rude and the price was so high. But, we stayed there because we could not find a room around that region. So, we decided to stay there although their rooms are like 50 year-old. We were going to stay for two
nights and next day when we came back to the hotel, the room was like we left. No one has entered the room to clean it.
Checking out was also a nightmare. We have waited more than 35 minutes due to unexperienced staff.
