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 15th floor which was fabulous to sit out on overlooking the river. The bedroom was very spacious, there was also a separate 'living room'. The 15th floor also had a huge lobby, with sofas to chill out on. The staff were helpful and I would definitely stay there again, as opposed to the pricier and more generic chain-hotels places nearby. It isn't 5* it could do with a lick of paint, but was perfect for my trip. You do get the noise of the call to prayer quite loudly in the night, but that is part of staying in a Moslem country.
