We stayed three nights here during our stay in Cairo where we had a group rate. I thought the rooms were very nice, and having a private balcony is a big plus. The outdoor pool was lovely although we did not have the time to enjoy it. The food offering from the breakfast buffet restaurant was good although there could be a problem when all groups come at the same time as the refilling of the buffet items would take time. The Chocolate Hour was also enjoyable, something I missed when I stayed at the Movenpick Jeddah. Lastly, the food was very good in the Japanese and Italian restaurants, with reasonable prices too. Overall, we had an enjoyable time in this hotel as the room was nice and the staff were friendly. It was just sad that there was no easy access to the Mall of Egypt which is located just opposite the hotel.
