It's located in a safe place where some of the foreign embassies are, so you will see guards with big guns patrolling. Unfortunately, I had a room that was facing the street and was lower level so I could hear guards checking in on their walkie talkies throughout the night. Breakfast was great - good mix of local food and typical Western food. And the view in the cafe of the Nile was a treat to let sink in while you are sipping your fresh strawberry juice.
I think a VIP checked in in the middle of our visit because some staff came by to count the furniture, but I think they were checking out if we were dangerous. It was odd, but we took it with a sense of humor.
