Second visit here and so pleased we chose Raffles again. My first visit was last March with my sister and this year I was travelling with my husband.
We were greeted warmly once again and taken to the Club floor for a flawless check in with Mark who was very welcoming and enthusiastic about the hotel building itself and all that is Egyptian which I loved.
We had been upgraded too on this visit to a Diplomatic suite which was situated on the corner of the building with wrap round balcony and furniture and a huge lounge and dining room, office and bedroom with walk in wardrobe, dressing area and beautiful bathroom - simply stunning......
Breakfast in Azur was as good as I remembered with ample choice and freshly cooked items. The waiters were attentive - especially Archie who could not do enough for us.
The pool area had been refurbished from my last visit even though I didn't think it needed it and it was soooooo tranquil and the service great - bottled water with ice brought around, iced towels and fruit skewers...... Heaven...
The club lounge was busier this trip which was good although one night it was a little difficult to get a table. The staff were friendly but clearly had a little difficulty keeping up with demand as it was full. The food quality here was good but a little sparse compared to say the Grosvenor Hotel which has a huge buffet. If Raffles could re look at this area I think they would be totally un beatable.........
