      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.

      ... spoke the language, haggled hard with a few taxi drivers to get a good price, but the taxi driver had the last laugh when he pulled over and took another passenger, so there 5 plus a baby crammed into the car. Nevertheless we all arrived safely, not to any house, but a rather luxurious house for Ethiopian standards, in a gated diplomatic community.

      So I ended up swanning around the comfortable loungeroom playing with the baby Declan, going shopping in the marketplace ...

      Cairo, Week 1

      I've been in Cairo almost a week now and have learned so much! My first real culture shock moment was when I learned there was no regular mail service. I asked several people why this was and the answer generally was, there just isn't any. This is never an acceptable answer for me, so, I found it necessary to 'Google It.' I discovered that until the 2011 revolution, Egypt has the best mail service in the Middle East, started as early as 1821, by Carlo Meratt, an ...

In fact, not only should you try it, but you should film yourself doing it and then send me the video so I can laugh at your massive failure, the time you waste arguing with people and the number of times you'll get ...

      The counterweight material must then be manually carried back up to the elevated level so the next block can be raised. There are a number of “shadufs” working ...
