      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.

      ... my short jaunt back in the US, I boarded my flight from Boston to London and from there my (delayed, of course) connection to Cairo. I arranged a pick-up through the hostel, as I was supposed to land around midnight and didn't feel like dealing with the taxi mafia after a transcontinental flight. And with the delay, good thing. I got settled into my room and had my grand plans of what I would do the next day...which came to naught as I woke up at 2pm. So, no sight seeing or ...

Over the years, the service changed hands, going to Meratt's nephew and eventually to the Egyptian government in 1864. Once in the hands of the government, the postal service was operated under the Ministry of Occupations, then to many other ministries, until in 1865 when it was transferred to the Ministry of Finance. Over the next several decades, the postal service was again transferred ...

      ... that goes with doing something independently. Had we gone it alone not only would we have learned nothing from the sites, but we would have been ripped off by cab drivers at every turn. Stop being a pratt and take the damn tour.

      None of this is a statement against Egypt at all - it's the same in most other places in the developing world. Sometimes you can go it alone and it'll be fine but sometimes an offer of something all-inclusive is better value and worth taking.

      ... Yesir', appears in shorts, flip-flops, an apron and a broad grin – certainly the most hippy thing I've seen since arriving in Egypt – and the two embrace heartily like uncle and nephew. Yesir, I decide, is one of those people who make you feel instantly at home, and we trundle down the track being greeted by a bundle of bouncy puppies as host and friend talk news from round here and news from the Capital.
