Arrived in late from Istanbul to a friendly and swift checkin. We had initially ordered a twin room, but none were left (which wasn't a big deal to us - it happens!) but we were given a double plus another fixed bed was moved in, which was a nice change from the usual rollaway that is brought in. The next day, we were moved to an upgraded room, which was an even nicer surprise! The breakfast buffet was superb, with a wide range of Western and local options. The staff were all very friendly, especially Nadia, who always made us feel welcome at breakfast every morning - I always like it when the staff recogise you. She also organised two tours for us, including one at the last minute, which was much appreciated. As a tourist, I would not say the location of Ain el-Mreisseh is ideal, with most things being a fair walk away including restaurants - there are a limited number a couple of minutes walk away on the corniche, however there is better variety in Hamra, which is a 10 minute uphill walk away - not usually a big deal, but after a big day of touring the city and beyond, it would be nicer to have more variety closer. The pool and gym were superb, though the staff down there (who I don't think were hotel staff) were not particularly pleasant, and seemed more interested in talking to their friends than serving customers. Would definitely stay at this hotel again!
