2/10 Poor

Very disappointed and misleading
After check in the room was clean, however after the first day no one cleaned it again. We asked for the room to be cleaned, no one ever came. We asked for clean towels, and no one ever came. We asked for bottles of water and no one ever came. As you can tell the service is lacking especially for the prices they are charging per night. The price of breakfast vs the quality is lacking especially for Cairo. I would highly recommend a different hotel. Absolutely zero wifi in the room.

Nice stay
I saw there was a free airport shuttle to the hotel, so after booking I put a comment for free shuttle. But received a message telling me that I would have to pay $15. So on arrival, I took a taxi: it cost me $10. And day before I leave, I asked the reception and was told it was free, and it runs every 30mins!.And $15 it's for assistance at the airport! The message was so confusing! So I took the free shuttle back to the airport. Wi-Fi was very poor. Also I booked a double bed, was given 2 single beds instead.But I still enjoyed my stay, thanks to the swimming pools.

Great option near the airport
Very convenient option if you need to spend a night in Cairo without being stuck in traffic as its 6mins from the terminals. Free shuttle every 30 mins approx. Good food.

Better in picture than in real
I booked a room with double bed plus sofa bed, for 3. I got a crappy room with no sofa bed. The door was opened when we arrived and was hard to lock. Bathroom was ok. Breakfast was not very good, and does not worth $10. Good thing is free shuttle but you have to call to get it.

Great hotel near the airport
I spent my last 5 days in Egypt at the Novotel Airport Hotel with my child. We had a fantastic time there. The room was very clean, lots of free water for us to drink and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the pool every single day as well as the gym. The only issue we had was that the wifi was very slow and would often cut out completely, however, we encountered this issue everywhere we went in Egypt not just at the hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Egypt.
