Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We just came back from 10 days in Cairo at this hotel. It really was fantastic. We actually walked to 7 other hotels right in the area and going in each one confirmed that we had made the right choice. Nine different restaurants in the hotel are all first class, staff are always there to assist and make you stay better. Clean, room cleaning staff friendly and do a great job. Sitting on the patio watching the boats on the Nile, lit up, was always fun. I couldn't recommend this hotel more. The others we wondered in, looked around didn't even come close.

BEST IN CAIRO! Being frequent business travelers to Cairo, we have stayed at several of the top 5 stars hotels there, but the Intercontinental Cairo Semiramis comes on top of all of them, Definitely the best that Cairo has to offer, it is a very special hotel that offers a large selection of rooms and suites (726 rooms) that will suit different kind of tastes and budgets, it features 8 restaurants, a full-service spa, a casino, 2 bars/lounges, a 24-hour fitness center, and a beautiful outdoors pool and breathtaking views of the Nile. Rooms are very clean with comfortable beds, room service is available 24/7 with a variety of exquisite cuisines, breakfast buffet is one of the best in Cairo. Our overall experience after 2 stays is superb, and as in any business, leadership is what makes a difference, after encountering serval minor issues with our first stay, and saw how management handled our concerns, we realized that the success of this hotel is attributed to its effective management, especially Mr. Samer Gameel, Executive Assistant Manager, he was most professional, prompt and ready to swiftly address any of the guests concerns, he will make sure that you will leave with a smile, and comeback without any hesitation We give this hotel, its management, and staff a well-deserved 5 stars. Weather it is business or pleasure, family or single, we highly recommend the Intercontinental Cairo Semiramis without any hesitation.
