“Short stay but left a good impression”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

I only stayed for one night but I left with a good impression
Check in and check out were fast and smooth, the reception guy was very polite and cheerful, his name was Karim
The room had a lovely view overlooking the Nile, the balcony was spacious and allows you to enjoy the view comfortably
The street can be a little bit noisy in the morning, after all this is downtown, but in the night its ok
Qasr El Nile bridge is only a minute walk and though the stroll itself along the bridge is very pleasant, the people themselves could be a nuisance
The lobby environment is OK but I've seen better
The number of lifts is convenient and you don't usually waste any time waiting for one
The room was nice, clean and well-furnished
The bathroom design was a little bit strange, the shower wasn't comfortable, the tub wasn't wide and I kept hitting the handicap rail
I only had breakfast and it served the purpose, theres not a wide variety of items, and the taste wasn't marvellous, but it was enjoyable
The staff are helpful and cheerful

Room Tip: The room with the Nile view gives a very nice view to the Nile

I loved the place. It was my first time in big Hotels but I enjoyed it. It was a good experience. The big breakfast, the huge and clean rooms.

And the view was simply fantastic.

Good work to the team. The incredible staff who welcomed me and even repaired my card when I had messed it up and it could not open my door. They fixed it. My room yes had the best view ever. I guess

Its a very nice place and its really safe and secured, The staff were all very nice , friendly and so kind. The room have the best view in Egypt....
The hotel restaurants are very nice , food is so delicious and all the waiters welcome us with a smile and trying to help by all means .
we attended a party to Ahmed Harfoush @ Panne vino and it was very very nice the food was more than perfect and the atmosphere was very nice , even the clients were very nice ( by the way the concierge clerk is the one who advised for it ).
My advice to have a dinner @ The Grill , its really a unique restaurant ....

Thanks alot Semiramis Team for everything .

I was very pleasantly surprised at the incredible staff at the Semiramis - from check-in to check-out, everyone was incredibly helpful and polite. The service I received was fantastic, with constant care and attention, and when I needed anything, my requests were dealt with quickly and positively. Great room, although I didn't have much of a view, but everything was working, and the bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows. Bathroom fine, but the shower in the bath was small and quite awkward. Excellent breakfast buffet overlooking the Nile, and the meal I ate in the Italian restaurant was v good, with very good service. Gym is quite dated and small, but fine for a quick workout

I stayed at this hotel with my husband, our son and my father in law. This is my father in law favourite hotel in Cairo, and he knows Cairo very well as he previously lived here for many years! I must say the food, service, location were excellent. The breakfast staff were ALL very warm and welcoming. Especially the lady who makes the Egyptian bread and Samar, the waitress!
I also highly recommend having a massage with Ebtisam, she was fantastic!! I will definitely come back in the future!!
