“GOOD PLACE IF IN CAIRO”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

Just left Egypt last week. There are few tourists. The people are extraordinarily friendly. We picked this hotel as it is next to the Nile and the Egyptian Museum (the most incredible place on earth as far as treasure and art -- put the Louvre and Metropolitan and British Museum together and they aren't even in the same planet). But a little bit of a difficult walk through traffic to get there -- take a cab for the 500 yards ( seems silly but you'll understand when in this part of Cairo). We stayed in an executive room -- strongly advised. The executive lounge was the highlight of the hotel. High floor -- wonderful view of the city and Nile -- and about the best food we had in the city. Buffet of snacks and lunch and dinner that easily make a whole meal -- and free beer, wine, ect. Sakara is a quite good beer made in Egypt. Room is rather standard good quality. Pool with cool water in 100 degree temp was a life saver. The staff is what is six star -- amazing. I will write to Hilton about one of their managers who helped us get a small purse my wife lost in Khan el-Khalili -- he went way beyond the call of duty to help us -- Mr.Wafa you are amazing! This is an incredible city and a very good base from which to explore it.

This Hilton is somewhat dated as far as the rooms go. However, Hilton service is in full swing!
The staff is amazing, the hotel is well kept and the location is excellent for exploring the downtown area.

My room was on the 21st floor and facing the Nile river. I was visiting during Ramadan and the Nile comes to life with beautifully lit boats motoring up and down the river. Music is pumping and the beauty of the city is a site to behold. ( I am not Muslim but it was awesome to learn/see how they celebrate)

Again very clean, great staff and good price. I would stay here again!

Room Tip: You must get a room facing the Nile! The views are amazing! Cairo tower, boats and the city!

Hilton Ramses is one of the best locations in Cairo,you will feel once you reached as if it's a two stars hotel because of the surrounding area but actually the hotel from inside is much better than the first impression,the welcoming of the front desk will make you feel better especially if you had a very bad trip,they also let me checked in very early in the morning,would recommend a high floor room especially the ones in the executive floors between 25 and 27th floors...

Spent three weeks here. Very nice facility. Good service. Rooms were clean. Other reviewers have suggested getting one of the rooms on the upper floors. Mine was Nile-side and definitely worth it. Only drawback was the music from the casinos on the other side of the river went well into the night. Good security. We had the executive package, which included complimentary breakfast buffet and access to the executive lounge with complimentary drinks and snacks. Great for the business traveler.

Location near Tahrir Sq made getting to meetings very convenient. Heard that the Tahrir metro stop was going to be reopened, though not sure that it has, which will make getting around town easier.

The breakfast buffet was very good, though after three weeks it did get a little old. The date muffins were my favorite. You can get eggs or an omelet made to order. Baked goods were always fresh. Room service was always prompt and the food was good. Pub downstairs had decent, but not great, pub fare.
