I was booked on a morning flight out of Cairo Airport. On previous trips I've stayed at hotels near the airport but distance and time to travel it are frequently uncorrelated in Cairo! This just opened hotel is connected by a skywalk to Terminal 3. I was able to check in at midnight, get some rest, have breakfast, and catch my flight with no worries, no stress, no hassle! I couldn't get the wifi in my room to work, but front desk had it sorted out quickly. I would have liked it if I could have had eggs cooked to order at breakfast, but I made do with the smoked salmon (yummy!).
My Egyptian host provided me with his car and driver for the ride to the airport ... good thing it was late at night with little airport traffic because it was tricky finding the entrance to the hotel despite the signs ... had I been driving I would still be going in circles! Security at the driveway entrance was tight, very tight -- the driver had to produce a lot of documents, they searched the vehicle before opening the steel gates.
The hotel is fantastic and grand in appearance, if somewhat sterile. The room was perfect with a nice view of the airport. Staff were first rate and accommodating. Really very nice.
