one poor recpcionist man
Amazing Nile view from the balconies in the Nile view rooms. Perfect location.
Staff isn't nice at all. Bathroom is very old. Price for the room is extremely high, but it doesn't include anything except sleeping. Everything else is extremely expensive. It's impossible to imagine how you can pay 19USD for breakfast in Cairo! To print a single page in a business center costs 5 USD! And so on. But we found free internet in a lobby still ;)
Convenient location, comfort, cleanliness good service, friendliness.
On previous visits the hotel offered three restuarants, the Asian, the Terrace (rooftop) and the Napoleon. For many years, the Asian provided excellent fare, both Indian and Chinese and the Terrace authentic and high quality Mid-East food prepared on site. Regretably, the sole remaining restuaratt, which also provides room service, is way below an acceptable standard with the result that we were forced to have most of our meals from other locations. It is understandaple that with the current downturn in occupancy there must be cutbacks but there is a reputation at stake and these must be addressed more selectively. We hope that there will be a return to a more acceptable service in this area.
The room was spacious and spotlessly clean, with a perfect view out onto the Nile. The hotel has character and is furnished in a distinctive, old fashioned style. The restaurant staff at breakfast were efficient. The location is ideal for visiting the Egyptian Museum and crossing the bridge to Zamalek. Some reception staff were friendly and helpful.
The Napoleon Bar was closed during Ramadan when we stayed - this should have been made clear before we booked! Some reception staff did not speak English and some staff were not very helpful. Service on the rooftop terrace was very slow and the waiter clearly did not want to be there. The breakfast was quite expensive for what it was. Being close to Tahrir Square is NOT an advantage!
It is central. It has history. It is friendly. I will stay again
The taxi service is extortionate. About three times the cost of the white cab service. It is exploitation of the vulnerability of unwitting visitors.
Good location and beautiful view; paying extra for the view is really worthy. The room and the hotel areas are clean, refurbished and quite.
I felt asif very important to the hotel staff, they did all they could to be at our service and to make us very comfortable. We enjoyed the food very much, the best we could have longed for, the location is also perfect.
Nothing, we liked everything!
Its very nice times
Overall positive experience
Overall, the hotel is decent but some of the services were not as advertised. For example, we signed for a tour provided by Hotel but our driver just took us to the locations and not give actual tour or guide. During check out one of the check out staff must have thought that I was going to check out without paying. He asked me to come over and check immediately. At the time, I was waiting at the lobby with our suitcases for my husband. Even I told him that he told me to get my husband to check out. Thankfully, a more experienced staff took over the situation and took care of us later.

The location is very good. The hotel is nice but needs renovation.
Well they gave me one of their worst rooms I guess. Most of their rooms have nice good size balconies with chairs except mine which has a small ?!standing balcony, so I think they give che prices but not there standard rooms?!
Faded grandeur - nice interior, elegance in the midst of this hectic city. Polite, friendly staff - all very helpful. Excellent location, great views of the Nile and all key parts of the city very accessible. Easy stop for taxis.
