I'm Goin' To the Pyramids!

A travel blog entry by nicoleanderson on May 30, 2013

I arrived at the airport a little earlier than expected, around 9:20pm. I got off the plane and went to customs, who sent me to the Egyptair desk to get a voucher for a visa, who then sent me to the visa counter, and finally I could go back to the customs officer. I found out from Egyptair that I got free accommodation because of the overnight layover, but I had already booked a hostel for the night. I walked into the arrivals area and there was a man waiting for me ...

... is darker and they really have only been identified as Egyptian in the past 100 years ie passport, driving license, money. They live a very simple life mostly in the south of Egypt. The food was nice and they had crocdiles in their living area! Bridge and some of the other girls got a henna tattoo from one of the woman. Tuesday morning was a 3am trip to Abu Simbel, a place 280 km south of Aswan bordering Sudan. Why 3am? Because we had to go with other buses under police escort ...

... lot. But staying still for a few days gave
me time to find some good people and realize that sometimes letting my guard
down to trust someone can be a good thing.

At the port I fought with Allan down the jetty and into the dim, boiling corridors of the boat, eventually finding a comfy spot on deck and prepared to defend my portion of hot steal till the
morning. It would be my home for the next 24 hours until ...

... of carpet making by one of the students and of course we can buy a carpet if we want to and will even get a 20% discount and free postage. Somehow I have heard this before. The silk and cotton/wool carpets are very beautiful but we don't need one. However a lady from our group buys one for $3500. My concept of Egypt is changing rapidly as we drive along the dusty roads beside the filthy canal. Collection of rubbish is a public service problem in Cairo so ...

    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.
