The place has a guard and turist police 24/7. If you leave the hotel they will ask for a taxi if you need and take some the license plate and driver...

The rooms are spacious. Great views from wide balconies. Very good Cairo location in Zamalek across the road from the Nile and short taxi ride to city. BUT! The service is crap. It is as though no-one wants to be there. The doormen are grumps. The reception staff couldn't give a rats. The housekeeper tried but maybe just wasn't on...

Location is good, it's in Zamalek. Down the hotel are cafes, restaurants, and a nearby grocery store. We're upgraded during our stay. However, the bathtub was leaking when we're using it. Furnitures are a bit old.

I had read some disappointing reviews of the place, so was very pleasantly surprised to find a really nice, friendly hotel. It was clean, spacious, has lots of character, and fantastic views out over the Nile. Well it did from my room, I paid a bit extra to get a Nile view, and I got a big balcony on the...

Location is beautiful at the river side in Zamalik island, Reception is warm and welcome, people are helpful, But anything else needs attention such as curtains, bath, bed, table and chairs in the balcony, cleanliness. It shouldn't priced as 4 stars. USD 86 per night for two persons is quite a lot.

The stay over there was beautiful, peaceful and authentic. I felt like I was back in time 70 years where the actual OM KALTHOUM is singing. The rooms were clean and the hotel's site by Nile is just breathtaking...Maybe the WiFi signal was poor and there was a little bit lack of crew back in the restaurant. However, the people...

We stayed there for a night, changed rooms twice. First room was terrible, dirty and no screen on window so full of mosquitoes and flies. Second room was slightly better, yet pillow cases were horrid, no screens on windows also. Bathroom leakage was an issue. No refund available.
