Definitely not a five star hotel!

The lifts didn't work, the internet is only available in the reception area (and you have to be sitting in a certain position!),cold food with poor selection for breakfast, air con didn't work,staff expected us to find our way to our room with our luggage which was a 5min walk away,fridge was filthy and water wasn't provided unless you asked for it in the room.

Fantastic for the Pyramids

We booked into this hotel for two nights so that we could have a lazy day sleeping, hanging out by the pool and using the spa following an overnight flight, followed by a day at the Pyramids. For these activities it is perfect. The Pyramids are approximately 1.5km away so perfectly possible to walk, or alternatively the cab is very cheap. I would not, however, suggest using it as a location for visiting downtown Cairo since it is a long and fairly arduous cab ride away. We knew this and had booked a different downtown hotel for the remainder of the stay. Facilities are clean and fresh, the rooms all open onto lovely landscaped grounds and there is a good choice of fair to middling food for breakfast. Minor downsides would be it is unsuitable for visiting downtown Cairo, it is on a busy road, and there are only a few restaurants other than those in the hotel itself within walking distance. However overall I think the hotel was good.

Tämä ei ole viiden tähden Mercure hotelli. Korkeintaan neljä, ehkä vain kolme tähteä olisi paikallaan. Henkilökunnan tason vaihtelu käsittämätöntä. Muutama hyvä, loput huonoja tai keskinkertaisia.

Sehr empfehlenswert

Wer die Pyramiden sehen will liegt hier richtig, zu Fuss in 10 - 15 Minuten erreichbar. Swimmingpool geheizt; also auch im Winter zu geniessen. Schade dass der interne nicht gefüllt war. Der Aufgang zur Terrasse, die über dem Schwimmbecken liegt und von wo aus man einen schönen Blick auf die Pyramiden geniesst bedarf der Renovation. Wird wahrscheinlich bis zum Frühling gemacht sein. Gepflegte weitläufige Gartenanlagen und Sonnenwiesen. Das Personal sehr höflich und zuvorkommend und in keiner Weise sich aufdrängend um Bakschisch zu heischen. Frühstücksbuffet sehr, sehr reichhaltig. Standardzimmer: Betten sehr gross und sehr komfortabel. Langes Büropult und kleine Salon ecke. Bei „Groundflor“ direkter Ausgang in kleine bestuhlte Gartenecke und Gartenanlage und von da zum Schwimmbecken. Toilette und Dusche etwas eng. Generöse weite Lobby wo gratis Internetverbindung zu Verfügung steht. Kann auch im Zimmer gegen Aufgeld bestellt werden. Preis / Leistung unglaublich günstig. Hotel wird von mir wärmstens empfohlen.
