    My stay was very short so difficult to comment.

    A very nice hotel. Access to free wireless internet. A lovely breakfast.

    The shower over such a narrow bath is very awkward to use. The whole bathroom ends up flooded with water.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The service by all the staff was super and, with the car and door security we felt safe. The room was nicely decorated and the bed was very comfortable.

    The balcony is tired and need decorating and the furniture needs replacing but, of course, the view is fabulous. The net curtains were filthy.

    One of the best in cairo, well located, great breakfast, free internet via cable

    As most of cairo hotels, its old. Althought internet (limited speed) is free in the room but u have to use cable. No wifi except at the lobby; Who use cables nowadays !

    while I check out, the lady was not friendly and asked me to sign the credit card without confirming the charge,

    very nice location and view over the Nile, good service and excellent breakfast.I would come again

  • Older travelers

    This hotel is keeping the same stander since it opened, the staffs there are not asking always for money, like other hotels in Cairo do.

  • Group of friends
    2.4

    Location is quite nice! You can see Nile River, Cairo Tower, and great night view. / Break fast is very good. You can take salad, vegetables, many types of bread, fresh juice, and so on.

    I used InterContinental with my friend, and I send message through "Booked.net", "We prefer two beds". But at first, the hotel show us a room with one big bed. I seid front desk, "please give us two beds", then the hotel changed our room.

  • Single

    food and drinks

    Unprofeciency of staff, unavailability of business facilities

  • Couple
    7.8

    The hotel is a good deal; The restaurant selection and food are excellent. The Nile view from the 14th floor was very nice. The location was about 5 minutes walk to the Egyptian Museum and maybe 15 minutes walk to the Cairo Tower. I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Cairo.

    The prices are misleading; instead of $265 a night, it was $334 a night with taxes and service charges added in. And it didn't stop there; it was like this at the bars and restaurants as well. I probably wouldn't have minded paying a few extra dollars knowing how much something costs going in, but it seems a little deceitful.

  • Couple
    8.2

    Good location - standard international hotel.

    Crowded and busy hotel so no personal attention

  • Single
    9.6

    Good facilities and good location. I would like to stay ther in next time.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Excellent breakfast and top restaurants, very attractive location easily to pick up taxis and to move around the city, great swimming pool overlooking the Nile, comfortable rooms and beds

    no centralised light switch in the rooms, out-dated shower, the bank in the hotel for currency exchange can be slow
