Great hotel!

This hotel was gorgeous. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Tarek (concierge) went above and beyond to help us and make sure we had a good stay. The grounds are picturesque it is located right on the Nile. The food at the restaurant was delicious (we even had pigeon). If you are interested in booking an excursion the concierge can help with that. FYI- there are armed guards at the gate and two ATMs onsite.

The hotel was great and had a good view of the Nile. There are other cheaper places you can stay at though with the same level of service. Overall I am happy with the service though. I accidentally left my credit card at reception and the guys found it and delivered it to my door. I was quite relieved by that!
