Cool location, and nice pool and outside cafe areas. The rest of the hotel is not very nice. The little shopping arcade (that you have to walk through) is old, and the rooms are even older (I was even "upgraded" to the Executive floor. Yikes. It's kept relatively clean for its age, but a clean old thing is still an old thing... Still, if you are going purely for the Zamalek location or for using the pool, then great!
-management was quick and nice when i had an issue getting to my floor (3 times)
Things to improve upon:
-The rooms (bed, bathroom, cabinets, and most importantly the carpet)
-Don't charge for internet... and then don't tell me that you charge for internet because everyone does in Egypt (I had just spent 2 nights in 2 other hotels that don't charge!)
-Elevators are awful. I couldn't get to my floor after going back to reception and having my key reactivated 3 times. Even later in the evening, some of the elevators were still not working (despite me alerting several hotel staff)
