........Ahmed Fathy for reception and Ramadan Ali for Concierge!!!! Any minor issues in the hotel were outweighed by the excellent service from both of these top guys - Helpful, Informative, Caring, Funny and all round hospitality professionals!! These gents made the hotel 7*!!!
Also, Ayman is one of the friendliest chefs I have ever met and properly makes the best Omelette I have ever tasted....A true believer in service with a smile!!!
In the evening I would say be open minded try it even if it does not look that nice I promise you will be surprised! I personally loved the food as did many others I spoke with. Standing out for me in the evening was the Ex Pastry Chef - Didn't get his name but always really polite!
Nabil is a legend with a massive smile and a great friendly barman - I heard some Russians shouting at him for something that was not his fault!! After this he was working during the night and he was missed!!
The last few nights Abdel returned from Cairo on the bar and again - Great guy and true pro!
I would say give it a try. Don't expect the Ritz just yet but in time they will get close to it! especially if the employee more staff like Ahmed, Ramadan, Nabil, Ayman (Chef) and Abdel
Location not the best but manageable with Taxies, Ideal location for relaxation and meeting great people also for the best nice sleeps with amazing beds, bedding and pillows.
Hope you give it a try if you are looking for a relaxing holiday in a fresh, friendly hotel you won't be disappointed - though remember it is not a party holiday!
