Bien situé vue splendide sur le Nil...

Posted Feb 13, 2016
Pros: La dimension et la propreté de la chambre... le confort extrême des lits ..la bouilloire et les 2 tasses dans la chambre (2 vraies tasses en faience)
Cons: Davantage d'espace pour le lieu du breakfast. Proposer du karkadé. Et par pitié STOP avec le thé et les infusions LIPTON.. c'est très mauvais...
Location: Ile de Gezira très agréable tout près de l'Opéra du musée d'art moderne...de la place Tahrir et du merveilleux musée égyptien ; très proche du centre
L'accueil est aimable mais standardisé (accueil bien meilleur au Barcelo pyramids à Guizeh) ; le hall d'entrée un peu étroit, sombre et pas très agréable. Le personnel est aimable et disponible. les agents de sécurité à l'entrée étaient charmants ... L'hôtel est très propre très bien situé .. les chambres accueillantes et vastes ..la literie EXTREMEMENT confortable ; les lits d'une personne très larges (1,20 m je pense) la vue de la chambre splendide donnait sur le Nil Le lieu du breakfast trop étroit également il était difficile de circuler autour des plats sans bousculer les autres personnes. Choix varié pour tous les goût.

Ideal downtown Cairo hotel

Posted Jan 11, 2016
Pros: Location. Value for money. Breakfast. Clean, decent size, functional room.
Cons: Not much. This place is 'fit for purpose' and asking for more would increase the price and make it then same as the 5 stars nearby. No point in that.
Location: All central Cairo attractions are walkable from here. Exactly on the river and next to a bridge, so it's ideal.
The Novotel is the best choice if you want adequate standards in the centre of the city without paying 5 star prices. The location is perfect, just across the bridge from Tahrir (and the antiquities museum); adjacent to the opera, bang on the Nile for great views and access to riverside walks or boats. The hotel is a straightforward 3/4 star. No fancy décor, bedroom are comfortable and functional. One restaurant which really only serves breakfast (which is very good btw) plus a nice roof terrace for f&b and views. Free wifi worked perfectly every time. Staff were helpful although untrained in security (they have a screening gate on the door but ignore the people walking through and beeping! - but that's normal in Egypt so I can't single out this hotel for this failing). I recommend paying the slight extra for a Nile view room for great views of the river - see pics attached here, taken from our 4th floor non-smoking room.

Nice hotel in Cairo close to Egyptian museum

Posted Dec 30, 2015
All personnel speaks English. The room was always clean and neat. The housekeeper always wanted to know if there was anything else they could do for us. One day we found flowers as a thank you.! The museum is walking distance and the Cairo tower. The Nile river is walking distance. The hotel is is downtown Cairo spect a lot of traffic. But rooms are quite no noise from outside. The breakfast was very good.a lot of choices.

Sauber, super Lage, freundliches Personal

Posted Nov 9, 2015
Pros: Freundliches Personal, das hervorragende Frühstück, die Sauberkeit des Zimmers und der atemberaubende Ausblick.
Location: In zentraler Lage auf der Nil-Insel Zamalek, direkt am Fluß. Museums-, Operbesuch, Flußfahrt, Einkaufsbummel...
Sieben Tage haben wir im Novotel El Borg verbracht und sind sehr zufrieden. Das Personal war ausgesprochen freundlich, das Zimmer sehr sauber, zweckmäßig und groß und auch die sanitären Anlagen gaben keinen Grund zur Klage. Herauszuheben ist das weit über Landesdurchschnitt liegende Frühstück mit herausragender Auswahl. Wirklich für jeden Geschmack etwas! Außerdem die Dachterrasse mit Blick auf Nil und Tahrir-Platz. Die besonders zentrale Lage auf der Nil-Insel Zamalek, direkt am Fluß gelegen, mit jeweils 300 m Luftlinie zur Kairoer Oper und zum Cairo Tower sowie einem großen Sport-Areal und über die Qasr Al-Nil-Bridge direkt mit dem Tahrir-Platz sowie dem Egyptian Museum of Antiquities verbunden, erlauben es, einige der interessantesten tourist. Ziele und Einkaufsstraßen der Stadt sogar zu Fuß anzugehen. Sowohl die Pyramiden von Gizeh (Giza) als auch die von Sakkara, ebenso das koptische Kairo oder der Sukh lassen sich vom Novotel aus leicht mit dem Taxi ansteuern (günstig!). Uns hat geholfen, bestimmte Ziele zuvor auf arabisch notieren zu lassen, auch den Namen und den Stadtteil des Hotels.
