I have been staying at the Lotus Hotel for the past 3 years, I visit twice a year in April and October for a 2 week holiday. I find the staff very friendly and very helpful, breakfast can be a bit hit and miss, but if you want something, just ask.
I don't have dinner at the Lotus, but eat out at Snobs, Dave's Bistro and Jewel of the Nile, very good food at reasonable prices. I usually have lunch by the pool, Alaa is very attentive as are Nazer, Ashra and Mahmoud.
The Calesh drivers can be a nuisance when you step out of the hotel, but just ignore them, it may seem rude, but is effective.
I go for a Falucca boat ride during the heat of the day, very relaxing, drinking mint tea, I always use Mohamed Sayed and his co-owner Hamdi Saadi, they come to the Lotus in their Falucca to pick me up and drop me off at the hotel in the afternoon. The sunset cruise is delightful, as is the trip to Banana island and Crocodile island. You can contact Mohamed on 002-01003846912 and Hamdi on 002-01064894044 they are both lovely guys, and their prices are very good, they will fit in with you and pick you up from the Lotus.
Am going back to the Lotus in April 2013, can't wait to get there and get some sun!!!!!
