  • Family with children
    6.6

    Reasonably clean, not really luxirious, good location, good staff

    4 stars is too much for this hotel. Value for money is poor

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    We love it's history and location overlooking the Nile. Service is excellent.

    No coffee/teapot in room, so everything had to be done through room service. Business center outdated.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    It is not a 4 star hotel its 3 or 3 and a half ! Our TV did not work and when we asked for someone to fix it they said they would send someone uo but that did not happen and we stayed two nights without TV.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Good location, reasonable price, helpful staff, 'happy hour' at Napoleon Bar, good breakfast.

    Additional charge for gym facilities is not made clear upfront. Cost of planning tour excusions/cabs is twice the street rate. (I know this is normal but it could be a smaleer mark-up, in my opinion), door locks are not secure, no in-room safes available, no swimming pool (although they claim they are renovating and will have one this time next year).

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    It is in a very good location, and is not too big. The staff are very helpful and efficient.

    There are a few things which need attention, however, due to the situation in Egypt at the moment and the small number of tourists, I understand the position of the hotel management.

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    The only good thing about the hotel is the location -if room is on nile view.

    Low value for money, no swimming pool, nothing really speacial about this hotel apart from location

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    It's a great hotel with amazing history, unique designs and atmosphere. Great location and price make this hotel worth to recommend.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    The staff should be more polite on their dealing with the customers, The T.v in room 628 should be better than it is (The picture not clear). The facilities should be more in the rooms as same as in the hotel.

    Location very good nice view overlooking nile. The concierge was very helpful , all staff helpful and friendly. Organised day trip for us to pyramids etc.

    Our room on 7 floor the toilet did not flush properly and roof in bathroom was leaking. Also we did not get breakfast with our booking. The tour guides /driver should know when the various site closing times are as we went 2 days in a row to the citadel and it closed at 3. we were very dissapointed not to have went in.
