We felt so disheartened by the end of the trip especially due to the poor advice and recommendations by the hotel staff. The staff were more interested in ripping off money from you than actually being helpful. We booked a flight and tour through them to Luxor and not only did they make us pay extortionate amounts they also conned us and never kept to the initally agreed itinerary. They made us pay for a train journey down saying the flights were more expensive, we found out later that not only did they charge us more for the fare but the price of the flights were cheaper than what we ended up paying!! When the manager was confronted about this, he denied all knowledge of it happening.
I can't comment too much about the other services of the hotel since we were out exploring a lot of the time, of what I can comment, the rooms appeared unclean and I was worried about getting into the beds occasionally.
Overall I would strongly discourage staying at the hotel but if you do, DO NOT get any travel or trip advice from them unless if you want to get conned!!!!
