Items came up missing from bags during our stay
Posted Mar 13, 2016
We stayed 3 nights. During this time, food items from our closed bags kept coming up missing while we were out. Nothing of great value was taken, but we felt violated and wronged, nonetheless. What is worse is that it kept happening - it was not a one time occurrence. I can't imagine what would have been missing if we had stayed longer. Because of this, I would NOT recommend this hotel to anyone.
Hotel is in an okay location - within walking distance to Tahir Square and the Egyptian Museum. Restaurants with English menus were difficult to find, however. It is very noisy, as freeway traffic is loud and persists throughout the night. Hotel is on 16th floor, but elevator only goes to the 15th floor. Not a big deal for us, but may be if you have mobility problems or a lot of luggage.
Room was a nice size. We had a quadrupedal room with one full bed and two twin beds - which is hard to find in Egypt. Two of our pillows were comfortable, but two felt like over-sized (very heavy) rocks. Beds were reasonably comfortable for Egypt.
Bathroom was disappointing as I specifically chose the hotel because they had a bathtub, but there was no plug for the bathtub drain, so a bath was really quite impossible.
Staff was friendly enough, though one staff member was quite pushy about their "deals" for tours. Their prices for tours are NOT good.
TV only had one, really fuzzy channel. It was an Arabic station.
