This hotel gets some harsh comments from some west bank residents, but I think that this is probably out of jealousy. The Nile Valley was the only building in the central area of Gezira to avoid demolition when the area was redeveloped. I like the rooftop restaurant for its excellent views, and the food and service is acceptable. On a recent visit they tried to add an extra Stella (LE16 + 10% service) to my bill, but of course they did not get away with it, and lost out on a tip. Only the pool-level floor or the new wing has been finished off so far. I guess that cash-flow may be poor!
