It was okay. The roof was closed for renovation, which was bad. Restaurant portions are not good. Bar snacks are way better ! We enjoyed the pool also

A nice affordable hotel in a good location”
It was a pleasant hotel to stay at with easy access to the city centre while far enough to not have to deal with the mad traffic situation. It was also a really good spot to be able to access the Egyptian Museum and to see the city from. Really nice roof top restaurant with an excellent view of the Nile and the city.

Nile view - Nile noise”
Nice Voew of the Nile, good food menu, proximity to a metro station
I like the proximity to the opera metro and walkable distance to the Egyptian museum. My Nile view room did have a great view, but be aware of those barges along the river that function as a cheap disco and they pumped out unbearably loud local dance hits till 3-4 am at the weekend (Thursday/Friday nights)

Excellent place to stay in a great location.”
The hotel sits over the Nile in walking distance of Tahrir Square and the Cairo Museum ... a really central location.
This was the final couple of nights after a wonderful trip to Aswan and Luxor and was a fitting finish. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room fine and the rooftop 'bar' (alcohol free)was a magic spot to sit and let all the noise of the city to wash over one. Excellent!

NOVOTEL SELL MY PRE-PAID ROOM”
I would never book this Hotel again, i have coming in the morning to check in but the room isn’t ready yet therefore the recepcionist just ask me to store our luggage on the concierge then back again on the check in time, but because we need to go to Giza we only could check in at night.. then in the night, around 10 PM i come to check in, but surprisingly my room isn’t available again as all the room has been occupied.. Hotel staff told me that my reservation already move to Sofitel for 1 night only while the others night they will pick me up again back to Novotel... it is crazy that i have prepaid the room but they sell again the room and they enforce me move to Sofitel... The night before this reservation, i’m just check out from Sofitel, and they enforce me to back again to Sofitel only for 1 night, it is crazy... considering i’m must un-pack then re-pack again my luggage... after debate with the staff (and i enforce him to call his manager) finally after almost 45 minutes they accept my request to have 2 nights instead of 1 nights at Sofitel, as this is Hotel fault instead of mine!!!

Noisy hotel, rude staff”
Location
The check in staff looked like they didn't want to serve me and throughout the 3 days were unhelpful in every ways. No smiles, I don't care, but also surly and incompetent. The whole hotel couldn't break a 100 Egyptian pound note and uninterested in recommending restaurants. Nile facing rooms get all the noise from the party boats 100 meters away and they don't stop till 4am !

Nice hotel overlooking the Nile”
Safe and secure
We landed during the Tahir riots and upgraded from our original hotel. Novotel is a very safe , clean and sits on the opposite side of Tahir square . We requested a room over looking the Nile, this proved to be more exciting than watching the tv as we witnessed daily charges from the riot police in front of the intercontinental hotel. Rooms are modern ,breakfast is adequate with use of hotel computers in the lobby. One minor criticism is there's no free wi if and the charges for a 24 hour connection are extortionate. I would stay here again as its very convenient.

clean, safe, helpfull staff, excellent location
Hotel is close to the Opera metro stop, and right across the entrance to the bridge across the river to Egyptian museum etc. Rooftop restaurant serves pretty good food and the view down on the Nile with the multi-colored restaurant boats as well as across river is nice. Staff is helpful and friendly albeit not very efficient. Only downside may be that there are not any restaurants, internet cafes, shops etc. in the immediate vicinity. The location is excellent however to reach other parts of town as it is close to the subway and on a busy street where taxis abound.

Location!
This is a great, very basic hotel. The furniture is spare and the desk looks like it came from an Ikea catalogue. Clever designs though make up for the small-ish rooms. Because they are a bit bare, they don't seem so small. Excellent views. Great location.

good location, neat and clean, friendly staffs
It was neat and clean hotel. The room itself is not that big, and the bathroom is also quite small. But it was well-maintained, clean, and neat. Especially, it has a great view in a room and the rooftop cafe. On the rooftop cafe, you can look down the panorama view of Nile. It is very close to Zamalek, walkable distance, 10-15 minutes. (But since there's no proper pedestrian road, it might be better to take a cap.) The staffs were friendly, too.

Very good hotel with great location. It will be fine for business travellers & for holidays also. In 2 min one can reach a very nice park & one can have a walk along the riverside. There's a roof which offers to admire fantastic views. Heated pool & jaccuzzi. Breakfast was pretty good, but not the best one. I would stay this hotel again & would ecommend it to my friends.

Great Location...but Poor Services”
Location....perfect position directly on Zamalek Island in the Nile, facing City
cannot beat the location....but you can certainly better the services ! even though the hotel was only about 25% occupancy the rooms were often not ready to checkin, for me at 1pm and my friend at 4pm. the hotel even did my transfer from cairo airport so they knew exactly what time i was arriving. both my friend and i waited half an hour in the lobby for our rooms. also the hotel is "dry"...no alcohol, very strange for a star rated hotel. no meantion is made of this in their listings...and their brochure in the lobby even promotes their rooftop bar...only to find no beer or wine for that sunset drink ! some reception staff good, one or 2 very blunt, even saying "cannot get your luggage from the room on checkout", even though only 25% occupancy. this hotel needs to smarten up its service to match its great location.

It's was a great stay there but the traffic was chaotic all over Cairo. There's is a travel agent tour around Cairo but more expensive than usual price. There is a cafe on the rooftop which offer great view of the surrounding and great cool wind at night. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is an ATM machine located at the hotel lobby. Location opposite the Nile river, which offer nice view and a boat ride too.

Price, Location, Room and bathroom size, service
massage rooms, breakfast quality, lack of sauna and hammam
Ideal solution for a stay in Cairo. Zamalek is a quieter area( compared to others) I was upgraded to Nile View to accomodate my requests for smoking & king bed. Such a gorgeous view!! For the standards this hotel is much cheaper compared to the neighbouring hotels where for an extra star you have to pay more. Rooms decor is a bit "ikea" for my taste but it's all clean and comfortable. I found incredibly funny the size of the bedside table.. enough room for a lipstick All the hotel workers are extremely nice and friendly! Good quality room service but breakfast quality is a bit low.

Location is very near city center, thus it is very convenient.
Breakfast selection is very limited
If the breakfast selection had more variety, it will make my stay more pleasant. The food was a bit cold and not much selection. If the menu is changed daily, maybe it might increase the guest appetite and mood.
