    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.

    Partying with a de facto head of state

    ... number, when I get confused at our rapport and am glad to be beckoned over by Seif.

    He points out to me a table of serious-looking men smoking on the table next to the bride and groom's. 'See that guy?' He points to one particular wiry older man, 'That's General Tantawi. He's the field marshal who was de facto head of state after the revolution last year: basically he ran the country after Mubarak went'. Yet again, my jaw drops. 'Those are all his body guards.' ...

    There were many good examples of common Coptic Orthodox Church characteristics:
    Many icons (images of religious figures painted on wood). There were 110 icons in this church, the first was St Catherine, dating back to the 8th century.Iconostasis (wall of icons, separating the nave from sanctuary)
    Beautiful wood work without glue or nails. Here it was ebony inlaid with ivory

    ... us up from the airport and I asked him to advise me on how to dress and on how to behave in the country. My friends and I were worried that, because of a cultural misconception, we might offend some Egyptians with the way we dressed, expressed ourselves or just by how we were behaving. He said we needed to chill and that if he found we should change something or act in a certain way, he would advise us.

    We stayed in Cairo for the first days and then went ...

    ... confidence and encouraged us to trust him. He posed as a trustworthy person seeking other trustworthy people. Like a typical confidence artist, he exploits the human traits such as natural desires, honesty, vanity, compassion, irresponsibility (or laziness) and na´vetÚ. We were suckers and can’t figure out why we didn’t leave at the first sign of a rat.

    Many things just didn't add up, just the bill.
