Gulf area customers receive the best treatment and service which is the opposite to the service any other nationalities receive.
Smoking is happening everywhere in the hotel even when there is a sign of NO SMOKING.
Security staff are very rude, they don't follow the rules especially with Arabs (Gulf area customers)but follow it and be strict with others.
Inappropriate behaviour from group of Arab young men and women took place around family friendly swimming pool. They were allowed to drink whisky and Beer, have very loud music , dancing and flirting inside and around the pool with and the staff did very little to stop them.
Services around the pool is awful and slaw unless you speak in English.
Room service is very slow & incompetent and food is not good as well.
Not soundproof rooms at all. Music goes on every night outside next the swimming pool from 10:30 pm till after 3:00 am. In a superior Nile view room in the 15th floor, it was very difficult to sleep or relax at night.
The only good service is in the Night & Day restaurant, really good staff and looks after all guests very well.
