first time in egypt, the hotel was advertised 5* which by egyption standards is. The staff are friendly, obliging and very hard working and whatever they can do for you they will. The food was in abundance, you will never starve if you go there, but some of the tourists thought that every meal may be their last so it was quite sicken to watch how much certain people ate. The rooms are very good and quite clean, and the heated swimming pool a bonus. The hotel is very popular with russians. Evening entertainment could have been a lot better, and as the weather was pretty grotty a couple of days it was very boring just watching tv, although plenty of english speaking channels.Also not really good for children unless they are prepared to swim all day, as far as i saw there was no entertainment for children Not worth going shopping unless you are brave, the shop owners will drive you mad, but soho centre is ok not allowed to harass you, but be warned it does not open until about 4ish.
