We were given a very warm welcome at the hotel which is in the Giza borough of Cairo. We were upgraded to a Nile view room which was spacious, standard Four Seasons quality and the bed was extremely comfortable. My husband and I were greeted with a papyrus gift which was generous. We tried the room service which was excellent in terms of quality, price and choice. We also used the hotel guided car tour. We had a BMW with a driver and egyptologist. The guided tour was informative, professional and considerate. I am pregnant and the driver was happy to drive us between the sites at the pyramids and the boat museum. There was perfectly chilled bottled water constantly topped up which was very welcome in the 36 degree heat. The restaurant recommendations given by the concierge were excellent however if you like to get dressed up and fine dining it is almost impossible to find such a place outside the luxury hotels in Cairo.
The swimming pool was lovely and the pool attendants were attentive and considerate. The poolside cafe/bar was excellent and reasonably priced. The spa was small-ish but more than adequate for a city hotel. I was not able to take advantage of the spa due to being pregnant and they did not provide maternity treatments. My husband spoke highly of it nonetheless.
I would certainly recommend this hotel as the best in Cairo!
