    This is a truly distinctive property. The hotel has done an excellent job of preserving the heritage of the building and one can't help but feel that they have stepped back in time when entering. The rooms are spacious and have been updated with modern amenities and are very comfortable.

    If you do stay at this property and choose to book online via Sofitel, be sure to reconfirm your reservation with the hotel directly. The property does not seem to be fully connected to the Sofitel system. We had a confirmation via the website but the hotel itself had no record. We also had a similar problem with the Old Cataract in Aswan (Sofitel let us book via the website but the property was actually closed!). Management was smooth in handling the problem and quickly found rooms for us; however, my guess is that this could be a big inconvenience in the peak season when the hotel is fully booked.

    The breakfast was adequate but we found the food at the Italian restaurant to be quite poor (freezer burned pizza, low quality ingredients, poorly executed attempts at Italian recipes without access to the necessary ingredients). Stick to local food. If you need a break from Egyptian food, take it somewhere else.
