Nice hotel, not a brilliant location
Posted Nov 30, 2015
The hotel is comfortable and clean (although my bathroom needed a bit of a scrub), and very importantly, safe. It has everything you would expect in a good chain hotel; the welcome fruit basket was a nice touch. I didn't use the pool, so can't comment on this, or eat in the restaurant, but all areas appeared pleasant. The staff were in the main, helpful and friendly, particularly Mohammed El Sayed, FOH Manager.
The hotel is on a very busy main road - cross at your peril, which the locals do, with great confidence - and there's not much in the way of cafes or restaurants in this district.
Taxi ride to central Giza or to the pyramids - agree a price before you get in. You can get the Metro to central Cairo for pence. Egyptian Museum, Citadel of Salah-ah-Din, the bazaars, definitely worth a visit. Advise you get yourself an Egyptian guide though, whatever you do...
