We stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks after the uprising in Cairo had resolved. It is beautiful and the staff were very obliging and friendly. The room was lovely and the beds extremely comfortable with sheets that were actually crisp! Unfortunately the pool was closed when we went to look at it as the hours of operation were reduced due to the low occupancy at the time, and the unpleasant odour from the Nile kept us off our balcony, but the food was delicious and we enjoyed one meal in the lounge with cocktails and another with excellent room service. The hotel is in the middle of Cairo but came through the unrest relatively unscathed, in large part due to its dedicated staff. Cairo is exciting and the hotel itself is exotic and lovely, right in the heart of the city. The hotel arranged for our tour guide, who was a young woman who did an excellent job of taking us to the sights, which we enjoyed even more since there was hardly any one else there. Great time to visit Egypt in my opinion, and highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Cairo.
