I really enjoyed my stay here. The pool area was beautiful along with the entrance. The buffet breakfast was outstanding. The only fault I have is with the hair salon in the shopping area. They quoted me 165 pounds for a haircut. The next thing I knew they wanted 385 pounds. No one could speak English so I had no...

I spent 5 nights on a business trip to Egypt at Semiramis Intercontinental. The hotel is pretty perfect for business travelers: fast, reliable and free internet access, many comfortable spaces where to have meetings, centrally located in Cairo. The service was excellent, even though the check-in and out process could have been a little more rapid. I had a problem...

We enjoyed relaxing and watching beautiful sunsets. The room had everything we needed including a French Press coffee pot. That's what we use at home so it was...

The hotel was definitely renovated. the rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. The staff very helpful but no Lobby!!! Great and varied breakfast.The main disappointment was the traffic while going in and out during rush hours. the view from the room was amazing.

It was Christmas day in Cairo (Epiphany in rest of the world) when we checked into the Intercontinental Semiramis Hotel in downtown Cairo, overlooking the river Nile, on a cold January evening. The first thing that struck me about the room is its awesome view of the Nile. Another high point of our week-long stay was the sumptuous breakfast spread,...

Excellent Hotel in heart of city cairo! The hotel is fairly big with lot of hustle bustle, restaurants, casino, pool, spa, shopping area. The rooms are good and clean, though they are very outdated. Infact the whole hotels looks very old. Nearby hotels Sofitel & Kempinski score much higher on this factor! The views from higher floor are excellent. The...
