an ok hotel
The hotel was fine for one night, with a beautiful view of the Nile and Cairo's oldest bridges and Tahrir Square from the room. It is also located in a great location. You won't be able to sleep at night due to the noise from the street and the music from the Nile cruises which lasts till 3 am. A slow service, you have to ask repeatedly and wait for a long time to be done, and you may have to follow up more than once. Make sure your minibar is empty, since they will accuse you at the end of taking something from it. It is probably due to the fact that the room was not prepared correctly before you arrived, the last person did not refill the mini bar and they tried to charge you for it. The parking lot is quite a distance to walk to and drive to, so if you have a car you should drop your luggage at the main door before parking. They do not have valet parking. Wifi is too slow, you won't be able to open and surf the internet.

Great Staff - Beautiful View
I intended on booking the Novotel by the airport but accidently (luckily!!) booked this one. The staff (Ahmed in particular) we're AMAZING! They offered to help me with transportation from the hotel I accidentally went to and made my check in experience a dream! They were so hospitable and kind. I stayed in a suite and the room was clean with an AMAZING view of the water and city at night! The bathroom was large and spacious. In the morning I left out early for the airport and they gave me a to go breakfast bag and helped me with transport to the airport. The hotel is lovely and the staff made were the cherry on top that made is Fantastic!
