From the doorman, to the front desk, to the restaurant managers/servers, and room cleaners, we received warm welcomes and great service. Beautiful and clean hotel, well located so it's private and secure. Because it's on the Nile, it's very quiet with lovely views of the city. There are three restaurants, all different and all excellent. Fresh pita bread is made...

The location of this hotels wonderful! Right on the Nile. The rooms were nice, the food good. Plenty of choices. In the evening sitting out by the Nile and watching the water taxis's going back and forth with the lights and music was wonderful. The hotel was very near just about everything.
