StephenQueensland Families - TripAdvisor review

We had awesome hotels right throughout Egypt. However this one was a real shocker. Despite having three rooms booked (& paid for in advance); they insisted we had only a booking with a sofa lounge. They ‘made up’ the sofa lounge for my kids, despite my son & daughter being too old to share a tiny sofa bed. We challenged the checkin staff several times, & only when we got out guide involved did they admit we were supposed to have other rooms. They then mixed 5e rooms up, meaning we were not together. It was a nightmare running up the hallway to share luggage, toothpaste etc, despite us paying more for connected family rooms. Amenities were very basic, & staff were disinterested. The internet, well didn’t really exist. The gym was closed with broken equipment, & the road noise was awful. Despite being on a no smoking floor, all the linen smelled like an ashtray, & clearly people had been smoking in the rooms. The food at the roof top bar was pretty good however. There are much better options this hotel in my view.

excellent location ...friendly staff with above average cleanliness and appearance....i guess i was there at the wrong time since they had road construction and hotel front renovations..the access to the hotel through the main street was horrible for a few days ..the breakfast was ok but remember they use the multi task staff to the maximum so the guy/girl who is cleaning your table at the restaurant is the bartender next door ..housekeepers were more than friendly and the rooms with a nile view were amazing .

Overall the hotel is very good. Staffs are nice. The room we got was the junior suite, and it overlooks the Nile River. Have some hesitations before booking due to reviews however we still booked the hotel. Noise from the Nile Ricer cruise- this was one of the bad reviews but we found it acceptable and it did not bother us at all. Wifi - Yes! this was bad really bad - you cannot connect from your room (luckily i bought a data sim from tha airport) - I called up the reception and asked if I can connect thru Novotel 1 instead but they told that they will send their IT - no one came. Just did not bother to ask anymore. I guess the hotel needs to check this issue since the "checking with IT" excuse is the review i have seen here many times. I hope that they will really check this since Novotel is really a good hotel but this was a letdown. Fast to get an Uber as well.

Good Service very helpful Staff. Specially Abo Malik the Shisha Guy and the Waiter Mahmoud Sayed the Waiter. The location is really close to the Egyptian Museum, the Cairo Tower and the Tahir Square would recommend the Hotel any time. The food in the Restaurant is very good
