    Masood, ie1 night business trip
    Very good 8.0
    Some rooms need a refresh but overall a good stay
    This hotel is located very close to the Egyptian Museum (5 minute walk) and has everything you'd want in a hotel really. Our room on the 23rd floor was certainly acceptable but it was clear that it could use some updating. The windows are single pane so we could easily hear street noise although fortunately it didn't bother our sleep. The in-room heating controls sisn't seem to work but as the temp was close to what we wanted anyway we didn't bother notifying the hotel. Presumably they'd have fixed it for us. The most impressive thing were the restaurants in our opinion. We ate at Pane Vino (the Italian restaurant) and the Bird cage (Thai) and both were excellnet although we'd give the nod to Bird Cage. But both provided very enjoyable meals with great service! Some have complained about the complimentary breakfast (may not be included in all rooms) but we found it to be more than adequate. It was sometimes difficult to get service (for tea or juice) but we didn't try too hard either. They have fruit, pastries, breads, fresh omellettes and hot options as well. If you can't find something to eat here you're not hungry! Security was tight so be prepared to have your bags searched on arrival and to go through a scanner each time you enter the hotel. This is no big deal in my opinion, it's typical in Egypt as tey take tourist safety very seriously while trying to rebuid their tourism industry. Our only complaint would be the smoking in the hotel which we didn't like.

    Great hotel. I didn't like the location though as one needs to cross many road intersections and Tahrir Square to get to Talaat Harb and DT
