Good Value near the Pyramids
Posted Aug 3, 2016
The Hotel is a pleasant hotel that is a little dated. The clients seem to be from the region with some foreigners from outside the region. Chinese tour groups in particular. When I was there they had a string of wedding receptions for 15 consecutive days.
The staff was pleasant and responded well when you engaged them. The bell hops (grey shirts) were very helpful and the guys that worked the food and drink service in the lobby and lobby bar were outstanding. I happened to meet the rooming cleaning crew and they also were friendly.
If you are looking for a 100% western tourist hotel, this is not your hotel. If you want to get more into the culture and be where the Egyptians and others from the region go, this is your place. In a couple years when the new massive museum opens just down the street, it will be the place to be and in demand.
The check-in process was simple as I had prepaid via Expedia. The room was one of the "bungalow" rooms near the smaller pool. The porter explained to me the features of the room and welcomed me to the hotel and Egypt.
I included the breakfast buffet when I reserved the rooms. Good value for the money. They also had a lunch and dinner buffet but did not try either. I ended up eating a regular meal from the bar service which was both economical and good. The guys that worked the bar / lobby were excellent and engaged in conversation if time permitted. I probably learned more from them than a travel guide on the area and culture.
