The hotel is great for a transit as its located a few minutes away from the airport. The rooms were clean and tidy and the rooms near the swimming pool offers an excellent view. The Buffet breakfast is excellent.
The drawbacks were...
- There is no privacy around the pool area, it's very open and people in the restaurants can see people in the swimming pool.
- If you are going to wear an Islamic swimming custom, you are in the wrong place because you are not allowed there, you can't cover your arms or legs. Islamic swimming custom is accepted all over the world, Europe, America but not in Egypt.... Very funny.
- In the pool area the staff generally nice except the pool manager, a woman called Shimaa, she were very rude and showed a bad attitude and manner towards me, I complained about her and the front desk manager apologise to me but I got no apology from her and she was still rude to me for the second time.
Unfortunately, that spoiled my stay in the hotel and left a very bad taste about the place, which made me decide that I will not stay again in this hotel.
I think they need to get rid of all bad manner staff.
