Minuses and pluses...Booking promises were not met. We arrived to be told that the manager had not reserved a room and therefore we lost our anticipated nice room with balcony. No refund. Then offered a room where the a/c was clearly broken and needing repair and other open wiring around the room. I was not happy. Although newly married, my husband has learned that he better take over or I will give the hotel hell. He sorted a different room that required ejecting a guest into the other room. Hilarious. Kidding. The new room had a better bathroom (the other one had a huge part of the wall missing; very romantic! Hmmm...breaky we took in our room cos there is no area except for a bar in reception and not pleasant. Ordinary and waited a long time. Fresh and clean however. Taxi had trouble finding.
Needs a jolly good clean. I checked three bathrooms and they were all the same. Scum build up etc. Needs some Jif and a good scrub. Sheets clean. We survived!
The pluses. Good location at the back of the Four Seasons. Easy walk to the Nile. Beds very comfortable, at least for me. My hubby likes them firmer. He liked the staff and spent a bit of time chatting to them when he went to have a tea and cigarette. The cost is reasonable and keeps this hotel on an ok scale. Generous late check out.
In summary, if you are ready to pay a little more then I suggest you go to the Nile Season which is the other side of the Four Seasons and I've reviewed previously. Overall a better option. BTW I read reviews on this hotel hence the decision to try. The more recent reviews are more accurate.
