Spied on in room

Posted Jul 4, 2015
2 American women: We returned from the pool to find a couple hours later that our phone was in use and on speaker---who was on the other end? We don't know. It couldn't have been an accident, as pushing speaker means a loud dial tone. That night, a member of the staff came to the door with towels, unsolicited, at 11pm, and despite a do not disturb sign, knocked on the door. When he realized we were on the other side but not answering, he looked mad and ran off. Maybe the hotel should employ only women?

everything is great except reception

Posted May 1, 2015 on Hotels
For our biz trip, we could find chance to try skypool and spa, the facilities are great. Rooms are good and confortable. Location is 5 min walking distance to spectra restaurant where you can find anything to eat with reasonable prices and delicious. Just the problem with the hotel was reception staff as we read here before going. We just asked stamped invoice but all staff at reception reacted like we came from Mars. By our great insistence they had to do what we need with unwilling behaviors. They need more training on customer relationship issue.

Good and Bad

Posted Apr 27, 2015
Good location well renovated rooms with fantastic Nile view, low level floors is well recommended facing the Nile river as you are laying on your bed. But unfortunately at your first step to the reception you'll face low profile staff with long waiting time during your check in and out. Bad room service, accuracy doesn't exist....

This is NOT a Fairmont standard

Posted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: The Food and Beverage department, Staff and food. The decore was nice too, There is a club downstairs, which was nice too, coz i didn't have to go far
Cons: the House keeping Department could do their job better, the Front desk can be more hospitable and informative. more courteous to their guests,
Location: Nile River. And close by you have the Ramsis Square, but other than that, across the bridge thers is Zamelek
Over all, it was disappointing, the room was nice looking, but my sheets were dirty, the shutters in the room were dusty, and the bathroom blind had gum on it. the Front desk staff were uninformative and vague. When I got there the pool was under construction (main reason why I booked),. No one upon check in told me it was out of service, I didn't get any email notifications either. The hotel charges for internet and local cell phone calls, and all of their excursions are charged in American Dollars, I did the same trips, for the same number but in Egyptian pounds when i visited them on my own. The hotel told me to take the cab everywhere, because it was safer that way, although the cab drivers gave me a tour of Cairo before arriving to my destination. So i decided to ride the local bus from Cairo to Giza. With basic Arabic, and a phrase booklet you can get around easily. the only awesome aspect of the hotel was their Food and Beverage department,. The food was AMAZING and the staff was awesome too, other than that everything else sucked! For all my issues that i had, i did get compensated with complimentary breakfast, light dinner, happy hour was included in the light dinner, and complementary internet, which would have cost me 293 CAD. Thats ridiculous. So that was good, but in general, I expected soooooo much more from a Fairmont property. Oh and they did make alternative arrangements for the pool,. but it was in a hotel that was a 20 min drive. :S

Hotel staff needs training

Posted Jan 30, 2015
Nice hotel but the staff is careless and does not know the meaning of service. Could not get drink in lounge with staff members standing around. Same story for breakfast, we had to get our own water and silverware while the well dressed wait staff stood around. Not good for what we paid and when they claim to be a 4 star hotel.
