we had one night in Cairo and this felt like a great oasis in a difficult place. The night and day restaurant was wonderful for the buffet dinner and breakfast. The hotel staff and those in the restaurant were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble

The rooms need renovation. Bathroom too small. Check in is way too slow, even at 1 AM. Concierge service very friendly. Good location and nice view of the Nike. But breakfast is fantastic. Great FOUL. Excellent service at the breakfast restaurant. If renovated it will be a very nice place to stay in Cairo

We recently spent two nights as part of our tour. We were in a very well-appointed room on the 11th floor with a spectacular view of the Nile. At night the colorful lights up and down the river were a treat to see. We enjoyed two wonderful dinners at the restaurant, and the very reasonably priced wines was a pleasant...

Was upgraded to Nile view room. Hotel lobby is a little big to be cozy, but it looks nice. Breakfast in the club lounge was really good. Thanks to Ashraf for nice service. If you travel with 4 taking a room with club access for free food and drinks is a no-brainer. I will be back

The lobby is very busy and connected to a small shopping arcade that is handy, however downtown shops are less than a 10min walk, so location wise, Intercon is much better. I had a nice stay at the Intercon for a night, was upgraded to a suite, that was very spacious. The two hotels i would consider are Marriott and...

Service was quite amazing, prices are high but good enough for the value, it is in the middle of the city, right in front of the Nile and beside of the downtown, the Egyptian museum is right behind it

Just stayed here and after a long day of business travel for one night. First of all the staff was extremely rude and not attentive. I waited on line for over 15 minutes and multiple people cut ahead of me with no regard and nobody in the staff seemed to care. After that I went up to my room which...

I stayed there recently on points. Overall, it was a good experience - room quality was comparable to other international business-class hotels I've stayed at. The location is convenient and one can easily walk to the Egyptian Museum. Service overall was very good, including in cafes in the lobby and in the Thai restaurant we ate at one night. Food...
