In a word, this hotel is superb, offering luxury amenities and rooms in a serene setting. Once through the portal you'll feel like you're entering a modern Venetian palace. Service is smoothly efficient, attentive to the smallest detail and seemingly never more than a whisper away, waiting to meet your needs. The rooms, too, are a marvel of luxury, with marble bathrooms standard. The best rooms face west (be sure to request a balcony), with the lush green tapestry of the zoo just below and the haunting form of the Pyramids hovering in the distance.
