We've Arrived!

We've arrived... But I'm ahead of myself...it's a longer better story!

We began our journey with a stopover in Calgary -- a 6-hour stopover! -- the result of using Aeroplan points. You get available flights. Ah well. We took a shuttle bus downtown but found the city core totally dead. Most shops were closed and just a few people were on …

Cairo Stopover

A travel blog entry by craigandlauren

Even though Cairo was just a stopover, it needs a quick little blog to mark it as another country we have visited. Granted we haven't seen anything more than the airport and an airport hotel, but given we needed to pay for a tourist visa to get into the country in my book that counts!

So very little to report on Cairo. Lauren commented on …

Fraser's reply "2000 and she's yours, or 2 elephants" We left Dahab on a very long bus ride up to Cairo. The driver was the worst yet and almost had many accidents. We were very glad to get off it. We got dropped off at the 'bus station' which was on the side of the road. Then the taxi war began. We had drivers physically fighting with each other …

Alexandria, Cleopatra's legacy.

Alexandria is north of Cairo about a 2 hour drive. Along the way we saw the President's palace, guarded by bodyguards, alongside the road. It must have been very uncomfortable for them to be it suits in the heat of summer in Egypt. When, we finally reached Alexandria , we were taken through the Alexandria Library, or the Bibliotheca Library. It was …

Free shuttle ride back to hotel. Walked to hostel to find out they have no room.  Had no idea where i was going to end up sleeping. Chill day: guitar lessons and updated blog.  Met up with the guys from Boston to see if I can stay with them at their hotel Novotel.  Success, i'm in.  But, the taxi ride there was interesting.  We didn't actually make …

    Good rooms and food, but terrible service

    Pros: value, breakfast, rooms
    Cons: service, service, service

    At the end of our Africa trip, we had a long stopover in Cairo and wanted a cheap property we could relax and clean-up before a long flight home. For $100, you can't go wrong with the Novotel who offered modern and clean rooms with a great buffet breakfast and amenities like a pool and gym.

    The initial service at check-in was good - they let us check-in early and even get breakfast on our first day - but the service stopped there. My wife was rudely dismissed by numerous male staff including frontdesk trying to track down hair conditioner which wasnt provided in the room. Our dinner was also poorly served. Lastly, the airport transfer driver was 15 minute late for departure, which wasn't as big of a deal to us as we had adapted to Africa and their reading of time, but could be troublesome without such expectation.

    All and all, the poor service doesnt outweigh the positives, so I'd still recommend the property for stopovers given its modern rooms, breakfast, cost and proximity to the airport.

    upon arrival staff was helpful and spoke good english. The rooms were provided by our airline due to long layovers. The food buffet made an interesting dinner and breakfast was delicious. very nice pool area as well.
