We booked this 28 day, Bed and Breakfast, deal with Accors Hotels. Please always check when booking what you are actually booking, i.e. if you want B&B make sure it says so! I think you get value for money.
Rooms - They are large and airy with fairly large balconies on which you can sit and watch the sunrise/sunset or call room service and have breakfast/dinner on it (if breakfast is not included)
Room Service - We had a few meals in our room. Do not order two full meals for two, since you will get far too much food. We used to order one salad, one main course and one dessert which did both of us. We always found something to eat.
House-Keeping – Wife wished she could get them home to do the flat to the same standard. We used the laundry quite often. Not sure what Mrs eLaReF would do without it. Prices seem to have stayed the same over the last couple of years, so when we go home, the only dirty clothing is the last two days’ worth.
Reception – Mr Oraby, who is the ‘main man’ there, will be retiring this year - unfortunately. If anything is wrong, he gets it sorted. Whilst we look forward to meeting his replacement, his shoes will be very hard to fill.
Pool and Pool staff - The pool is heated from October to the beginning of April. You sign your name and room number in a book and the pool staff will then take you and towels to any sun bed which is available. If you want extra shade they will move the movable umbrellas to you. Nothing is too much trouble.
Snacks, drinks and lunch are served from the Pool Restaurant. You can just order water and they will bring it to your sun bed in a wine cooler with a glass. You can even order your lunch to be brought to you if, like me, you are too lazy to move.
Breakfast is served in the Corniche just now from 5:30 to 10:30am. They cater for all nationalities so they have something for everyone in the buffet. They will bring you fresh hot water for your tea and coffee and hot or cold milk. Again ask if you require help - the staffs are there to help and they do it well. They may be reopening the Pavilion’s own restaurant, the Bougainvillier, soon, so you will get your breakfast in it, rather than walk through the gardens to the Old Winter Palace.
Wifi – Was available in our room and was free.
I am always amazed how many people go to Egypt and expect everyone to speak English. Many of the staff do have 2nd or 3rd languages, but they aren’t necessarily English. We met many other European nationalities there. Again, if there is a problem, let them know so they can sort it.
