    Location and the staff, especially the front disk team, MS. Fatima and Mr. Tariq. The balcony view is fantastic 😍 . They gave me free lounge access. Also, the Morroco restaurant is a live band.

    Busy buzzy hotel with great character. Nice areas outside to sit and pool area is small but nice atmosphere. Great spot on the Nile. Amazing views. Good sized rooms which have a certain retro charm that comes with the hotels age being built in...
