My partner and I stayed at this hotel at the beginning of a tour through Egypt, and then at the end of the tour. When we arrived in Egypt (around 4 a.m.) our guide was not available to meet us at the airport due to a strike with Egypt Air that had delayed our arrival. The hotel staff were accommodating by allowing us to check in early in the morning, although we did have to wait in the bar (which was fine with us) for our room to be prepared. While it took a little getting used to the police and guards at the entry to the hotel, and if sitting in the hotel entry lounge area the metal detector seemed to go off a bit, but did not distract the guards much, we found the hotel comfortable. At one point I had to call home, and while I could not be sure, it appeared to me that the hotel operator was listening to our call, but I may have been mistaken. The grounds of the hotel are very nice. During our first stint at the hotel, we were placed next to the tennis courts, which did not offer that nice of a view. However, on our return, our room was near finely kept trees and greenery, with a little table and chairs set off in a shaded area on the lawn where cats frolicked. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff were responsive. The "Italian" restaurant at the hotel would not get high marks, but the restaurant on the ground floor served one of the best meals I had during my entire trip in Egypt (garlic rice, almond soup, grilled sea bass, and potato croquets). We found it very relaxing to sit by the pool and drink wine, smoke shisha, and write in our journals. The staff were a little slow, but polite. It was interesting that they preferred to be paid with crisp bills. If they were torn or damaged in any way they would request a different bill. The AC in the rooms were all controlled by the entry key, which sometimes was problematic as the room would be stuffy upon our return. We had thought the hotel would overlook the pyramids, but it does not. However, they are close. The hotel served breakfast, which was fairly good compared to other meals we had while we were in Egypt. The hotel had limited wines, to our recollection there were primarily two, and we chose the Omar Khyam, which is a little strong. The hotel did not have free internet services, although at some points during the day we could watch CNN World on the CRT television. If we are in Cairo again, we would stay at this hotel. It was quite comfortable and was, indeed, like a gated Oasis in the middle of a bustling city.
