Property is in a once very prominent area, that stills hold the glory of the grandiose architecture of the early 20th century. Area about the size of a couple of city blocks is closed off to cars, with very charming atmosphere. Major financial institution reside there, so there are seated pleasant police officers at every entrance to the area and in the internal roads. As a tourist, you are untouchable and not allowed to be molested by anyone, not even the police, as a policy by the government of Egypt. The government is undertaking major rehabilitation efforts with work in progress not greatly affecting the charm of the area. Hotel on first floor of one of the old buildings, in the center of the pedestrian-only area. Old trees line the wide corridor between the rows of historic buildings. Some of the most popular and upscale shopping streets sourround the area. Outside of the Hotel is run down but the hotel itself, the floor where the hotel is, is in up-to-standards good shape, with modern new plumbing and electric. Working wi-if everywhere and in rooms, Satellite TV, comfortable and clean rooms and beds. AC units are relatively new and effective. Small family of staff serve you with great respect and courteousy, are eager and happy to run errands for you, but don’t forget to tip them, as wages in Egypt are low. They can wash and iron your cloth, cook meals especially for you, etc.. again tip them, Egyptians are happy with smaller tips than anything you maybe used to.
