When we arrived we were told we were upgraded to a suite. (We already had reserved a suite with a Nile view) We were shown to a huge room with 3 bedrooms and a kitchen and if we peeked through a bunch of trees we could see a glimpse of the Nile. The bed was comfortable however the bathroom looked like it was straight out of a motel 6 with dingy tiles, stained grouting, and a sink that dripped all the time. The kitchen had no utensils, cups, or dishes whatsoever. They brought tea and coffee to make in the room but there was nothing to make it in. We ask 3 times for cups and were told "no problem, we will bring it" yet they never did.
The pool was nice however with all the construction going on around the building it was impossible to lay out or swim because of all the whistling and "cat calling" from the construction crews. In general, the hotel is sitting next to a huge construction area and is very dirty. The hotel is surrounded by development, in a bad neighborhood and behind a bank on a very busy road next to the Nile hence all the security everywhere. we were told not to walk anywhere which was disappointing since we chose it so we could walk to places.
