This is mainly a hotel for mainly transit at Cairo airport. There is another hotel in the perimeter of the airport which is more convenient as it is directly linked to Terminal 3 (used by Egyptair) but it is expensive. The Novotel is reasonably priced and is only 5 minutes away by taxi and cost less than 3 dollars, but the driver will ask for more. Frankly, with the dire economic situation in Egypt I gave him 7 dollars. There is a shuttle bus but seems to work only if you call the driver to collect you (the number is +20 11 47404400, given to me by the driver himself this morning). I had arranged for the hotel bus to collect me at midnight but it never arrived. It leaves the hotel every 30 minutes and runs 24 hours. One can also walk to the hotel from Terminals 1 and 3. Go for a room in the new wing, which also happens to be non-smoking. For previous stays, I recall those in the old wing are a bit dated although everything works well in them. This hotel is a standard Novotel so do not expect any luxury, although there is a lovely outdoor area with two swimming pools for adults and kids. There is a buffet dinner which is really nice. Breakfast is normally included.
