We stayed at his hotel last December, as part of a tour. The hotel was very close to the Egyptian Museum, about a 10 minutes walk. The problem was to cross the roads to the museum, there are no traffic lights and you have to run for your life. This is not the hotel's fault, you are going to have this issue anywhere in Cairo.
The hotel was clean and nice, very standard. Our room was big and roomy, comfortable, with a diminutive balcony. Regular standard amenities, nothing to stand out for good or bad. Cable TV with a bunch of international channels in different languages, comfortable bed, network card interface cable for internet (no wireless, wireless was available in the lobby and it was pretty expensive. If you bought 1 hour, you had to use the hour within 24 hours or it would expire)...
There are several restaurants inside the hotel if you don't want to go out at night (Falafel -egyptian-, a British pub, an Indian restaurant, a buffet type restaurant...). Breakfast was served inside the buffet place and it was adequate and variate. There are sandwiches and simple fare in the mall across the street (and one of the best Umm Ali I had in Cairo! ). We never felt threatened walking around the hotel at night.
There were a few small shops inside the hotel and an ATM machine and bank to change money. There is a small mall across the street for more shopping. The hotel was pretty popular with tourists and there were always huge groups downstairs, it was pretty crowded. There was also a casino downstairs and a restaurant upstairs, as well as a pool and spa, but we did not get to see them, the restaurant was booked for a Christmas party
Like many hotels in Cairo, there is a metal detector and a bag scan at the door with security guards, you need to run the bags every time you enter the hotel.
Service was good in general, slow sometimes, but friendly, nothing to really complain about it.
In short, I would say it was a standard, adequate hotel; nothing to make us jump up and down, but nothing to reject it either. Impersonal and I would give 4 stars instead of 5.
