I don’t know if pool is accessible for outsiders but if you use terrace for tea, drinks or snacks I suppose you can negotiate with the staff to have it at pool.They are really very helpful and go extra mile to provide services. I really had good experience with all of them.

"the Nile view rooms in the old section are worth every penny."
"The Nile view is fabulous"
"Our fantastic room was in the new tower. If we return, I might request a room in the old hotel."
"Choose a Nile wing deluxe room with Nile view"
"Don't shy away from the newer tower (it has much bigger windows and expansive balconies). Try for a higher floor."
