Very good location. In general nice and clean hotel that could be renovated. Breakfast could be with more variations. I would recommend this hotel to anyone coming to Cairo both as tourist or for business.
Sonja, ie1 night family trip
Fair 4.0
The hotel is nice, the view is amazing but we felt the balcony wasn’t not safe to seat in it because it’s built out side the room and direct on the Nile, and the food from Kababgy restaurant wasn’t good at all plus over expensive will, the parking fees is too expensive as well 200 EGP per night !
Salah, us1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good stay. Be prepared to repeat yourself a lot.
Great location. Staff seem surprisingly confused by basic requests (asking for a pickup from the airport, asking for a coffee with milk etc) but always happy to help once they finally understood. Restaurants and facilities were good.
Mariana, gb2 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Certainly a great location in the heart of Cairo, the hotel has great amenities and a very helpful staff. Large, clean rooms. Only thing we had an issue with was that many of the electronic items in the room were not working, including one of the TVs, a lamp, and the safe. Maybe we just had a bad room? But still a great experience and hope to visit again someday.

Exceptional 10.0
Best location and amazing rsetaurants
I don't understand the low rating this hotel has. In my view it should be a 10! It has the best location in Cairo - the only hotel with a garden right on the bank of the Nile - and also less traffic noise due to its position. It has an amazing variety of restaurants, and it is the only hotel I have stayed at for 5 days and still had a difficulty choosing what to eat. The bathrooms might be a bit tired, but don't let small stuff like that bring you down. This hotel offers an excellent value for money and should definately be your first choice in Cairo!
