Nice hotel right off Tahrir Square
Posted Sep 15, 2016
The hotel is right in the center of the city. It's an easy walk to the Egyptian museum, American University of Cario, and Tahrir Square, although anywhere else (including restaurants) requires an Uber/taxi or some more adventurous walking. Getting in and out of the hotel via Uber was difficult since traffic on the Corniche can often be bad. We found ourselves walking to and from the Mogamma on Tahrir for rides to avoid some hassle.
Pool was nice, but good to note that it's more of a family atmosphere with kids than adults drinking cocktails atmosphere.
Some staff were really helpful and friendly. Others less so. Tried to charge $40 USD fee to check in early, although I think the staff messed it up so we didn't actually pay it.
