“Beautiful hotel in Cairo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 November 2011

We were supposed to be staying in a different hotel in downtown Cairo, but our tour company moved us due to the demonstrations in Tahrir Square. We were very pleased with the accomidations here. Room was large and comfortable. There is a great selection of restaurants - 6 of them! We ate at several of them and found the food to be very goosd. We had a chance to use the spa and enjoyed the sauna and steam room. The service and personnel were great - I had a problem with an ATM machine retaining my debit card, and the Manager was very helpful in resolving the issue. The only issue we had is that we found the room temperatures were too cold, and the heat/AC was impossible to figure out. The location is great if you want to be near the airport.

We stayed during day 3 of the revolution in January. The main advantage was the close location to the airport. This was not selected by our tour initially. We were very pleased to be at such a beautiful hotel. Our rooms were large and luxurious. It was a busy place with all the restaurants open. That did change but it was the circumstances. I think we were in the newer part. If we ever return, this is a good selection for its amenities and location to the airport. As much as they were able, the people were trying to help us all, again circumstances were difficult for all of us.

Have stayed at this hotel for 10+ years as Sheraton. Other than a refurbished rooms and better restaurant selection, it seems the same. I did not stay at the Towers. Value of room was great at old hotel side. Check in and anything at the front desk always seems confusing and complicated, but very friendly at check in. Lebanese restaurant is always good, but if you want a quieter dinner or have business discussions, make sure you are not there for the music and belly dancer. Past visits have used the pool and gym, which are ok. Great location for in/out of airport. Free wifi a plus.

This hotel was amazing! The food, service, rooms, location near the airport are all great. I haven't seen staff that understand customer service this well but a few times in my life.

We were staying in the old section of the hotel - not the towers. The rooms were big and were very clean with a nice view overlooking the 2 hotel pools.

A lot of the restaurants in both this hotel and the towers next door were closed as we were told the hotel was only 35% full and was very quiet.

It was a good hotel especially if you want to be very close to the airport as it is only a few minutes drive from the airport. The downside of that is that it's a long way from Cairo city centre.

Just came back from this hotel where i have stayed for 2 days only. This is very nice place very close to the Cairo Internaitonal Airport. Nice and helpful stuff, big and wonderfull designed rooms.
I am not quite satisfied with the food in the restaurant (i tried Italian) but suppose it is better to order there only seafood.
If you can't find dental kit there - ask the receptionist, he will bring that for free.
The pool is not so big to be expected in such big hotel but there is more than enough sunbeds here and pool guys could are very nice
