Great hotel in heart of CairoPosted Jul 5, 2015
I really enjoyed staying in this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful (they called to wish me a happy birthday). There are plenty of things to do within the hotel, so there is no need to go out to find food or drinks.

Hotel near City centrePosted Jun 10, 2015
Pros: The rooms are quite delightfully furnished and spacious. Security is very high level.
Location: We visited the Cairo museum the Giza pyramids, the Sphinx, the papyrus showrooms did the Nile river dinner cruise and etc, should have stayed longer
We arrived at 8pm after a flight from Rome to be advised there was only a smoking room available and we would need to wait another half hour at least for non smoking. So,,,we finally got our room at 8,45 but after waiting for luggage to arrive finally went to h lobby and found our luggage and took it up ourselves. A requests Thefollowing day for an iron and ironing board was completely ignored. Again after waiting over an hour my husband went down to get the items needed and was treated with dress ion by the staff on duty, so much so that he then had a confrontation with the duty manager. All over an iron!!!! By then of course it was too late anyway. The iron and ironing board arrived just as we were walking out the door To a dinner engagement that we then had to attend with clothing looking as though it had just come for a jumble sale. Not a matter of earth shattering importance but also not what one expects from a supposedly 5 star establishment.

Central, noisy, dirty and construction work 24/7Posted Jun 4, 2015
Pros: Checking out
Cons: Interior decor, cleaning, rooms, beds (terrible), linen (far too old and threadbare), wifi connectivity (too slow) - it's a hotel living in the past
This could be a nice hotel - it's missing so many of the things you'd expect. There was loads of construction work inside the hotel, in the lobby area and the security screening - well, it was a joke. The hotel is dated and needs an overhaul

Safe & wonderful hotelPosted May 24, 2015 on Hotels
It was fantastic! They are a little slow on pouring you coffee during the breakfast buffet, but it was otherwise wonderful. The Birdcage restraint was delicious as well. The people of Egypt are exceptionally friendly and kind. We felt exceptionally safe.

Old but classyPosted May 2, 2015 on Hotels
Stayed only in the club rooms This should include quick check in on the 18th floor, but there is no such thing! 2 out of 3 bookings were not done properly and had to change the room!! Checkin on average 1hr, the worst for an intercontinental.

My stay here was great.Posted Apr 30, 2015
Pros: It felt very secure and was very accomodating.
This was my first time in Cairo. The hotel was very accommodating. I would suggest they advertise that they are within eyesight of the US Embassy.
