It's a big hotel that has a unique view on the Nile and the Bridge of Kasr El Nile if you have a nile View, but if you got a City view you will watch Tahrir Square and may be from a very far Distance Citadel of Salah El Din. For the Rooms either if it's Deluxe Room or Standard...

We had two beautiful rooms over our stay covering two weeks. The beds, linens and pillows get an A+. Views spectacular. Staff was great. Lots of restaurants in the hotel and the bar in the lobby was beautiful with a great staff. People still smoke (even in the elevators!)
