I stayed here as part of a tour both before and on return to Cairo. It is about an hour from the airport (100£) in a safe location away from downtown. A supermarket is around the corner and many nice places to eat are all within walking distance. Metro is also close by. Rooms are sufficient but hotel can be noisy at night. Showers had hot water but holder supporting shower head in both rooms i stayed was broken and you had to hold the whole time making it a pain (although this was common in most hotel throughout Egypt!). Rooftop bar is really nice place to relax with great view. Free wifi in the lobby/ restaurant is pretty strong and unlimited. Food is average but ok if cant be bothered going out, breakfast is repetitive but ok. Some of the staff are great and attentive - the doormen and servers in lobby restaurant. Other staff are pushy or cant be bothered - breakfast servers, front desk clerks. I would be careful buying anything from the inhouse 'shop' as they will try to rip you off. Also as this hotel is used by tour groups, be weary of people in the surrounding streets saying they are linked with companies - they are not and try to rip you off. Overall due to safe convenient location i would recommend and stay here again.
