The most valuable feature is, if you get a room on 2nd or 3rd floor, is the very nice view of the Nile river.
Also, the staff is very friendly although they don't speak much English. The hotel is on the east coast of the Nile whereas the city is on the left side. So, everything is far away, and you need to go by taxi.
The place has had better times and can benefit from better cleaning.
There is a large restaurent with low prices. We didn't eat there.
We wanted to go to restaurent. But, they told us police will not let us go by ourselves, and they want to take us.So, we sat in the police van with armed guards. They were very nice to us. They waited upon us until we finished eating and drove us back. It was an interesting experience.
