The hotel had been totally renovated and it was a great pleasure staying here. The bathroom was luxurious, the room was comfortable, and the service a delight. The room overlooked the Valley of the Temples. Since we planned this as a once in a lifetime visit, we felt the price was well worthwhile.
The room, the private balcony, the restaurant, the pool and gardens made our visit a delight. In the evening, we ate at the outdoor restaurant, overlooking the Temple -- it was perfect. We were within walking distance of the Valley of the Temples. Our stay here allowed us to park the car and not use it for two days, which was a welcome benefit.
The one small issue was a kitchen that did not fully coordinate food presentation e.g., poached eggs on toast were served as poached eggs with the toast arriving 10-15 minutes later. Also, there is sometimes a shortage of dining room staff if there are more customers than usual. In spite of these hiccups,we would certainly recommend
