I stayed here as part of a pre-paid tour package, so I cannot comment as to price. This is by far the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was extremely clean, spacious, and pleasantly appointed. The bathroom was very comfortable with lots of counter space and a big tub/shower. Nice toiletries and high quality towels. Large TV with English-speaking news channels. Several desks/tables to work at. The bed was enormous (king-sized) with top quality linens -- extremely comfortable. The decor was very nice. In fact, the entire hotel was beautiful, most especially the inner courtyard and pool. It was very enjoyable to have a swim in the pool and later return to dine al fresco under the palms. There were several dining options from which to chose. The hotel also offered the convenience of an ATM and a bank for money exchange. There are several gift shops and a bar, as well. The breakfast buffet was superb. This hotel did not seem to be far from the airport.

My wife, 5 year old son and myself visited Cairo in October 2008. We flew Egypt Air out of Bahrain directly to Cairo. We had booked an Executive Suite at the Concorde El Salaam Hotel, which was a 5 star hotel according to their website. We arrived in Cairo and were greeted at the airport by their Airport Manager...yes an airport manager that meets and greets you before escorting you through customs and to your ride to the hotel. The hotel was comfortable, although NOT, I must stress, NOT child friendly at all. The executive suites have the additional luxury of access to an executive lounge that serves snacks and drinks throughout the day, however children are NOT allowed access to the lounge. After much debate, we were allowed to collect snacks and drinks from the lounge and enjoy them in our room.

The room was mediocre without the expected facilities such as a jug kettle. Furthermore, the hotel catered a wedding party on almost every evening that we were there. These parties were extremely loud and could be heard clearly on the 1st floor where our room was situated.

Don't even consider going for breakfast if the hotel has tourist groups, I suggest that you delay breakfast until 09h00 or 09h30.

The mini Khan El Khalili bazaar in the hotel premises is worth the look, but bargain until a price is reached that you think is worth the souvenior!!! The hotel gift shop is overpriced, however prices are also negotiable.

We booked a tour via Emad, whose name we found on tripadvisor. We met Amira, one of the guides that work for Emad, on the first morning of our vacation. She picked us up at the hotel in an air conditioned vehicle (with a separate driver) and planned our day as we drove out. Amira was absolutely brilliant with an amazing knowledge of all the sights. We visited the pyramids of Giza and Saqqara while stopping at a carpet factory and a perfumery as well. The perfumes are really worth the look. Ask Amira to take you to the papyrus company as well as the shop that sells the kartouches (gold pendants). We spent 2 days touring, and the highlight was certainly the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum. Another highlight was the recreation of Tut's tomb at the Pharonic Village and the Sound and Light Show at the Sphinx.

This hotel is a 10-20 minute drive from Cairo airport (depends on how bad the traffic is). There is a complimentary shuttle bus to/from the airport, but we weren’t aware of this until we had reached the hotel (by taxi; LE55). As with all the hotels that we stayed at in Egypt, security was impressive with bags x-ray screened and metal detectors on entry. We stayed in a room that included access to the Club D’elegance lounge as we felt that this was good value for money. They lounge entitlements includes breakfast (good selection and quality, apparently you can also have breakfast at one of the restaurants downstairs which has a larger selection), water/softdrinks/tea & coffee during the day, high tea from 3-5pm (horrible attempt at sandwiches, though), happy hour serving alcoholic drinks (beer, wine, spirits) and canapés from 7-8pm and also complimentary pressing services for 2 pieces of clothing per stay. We were granted on request a late check out of 6pm for an additional US$30.

The room had a small balcony, large comfortable bed, desk, tv, sofa, airconditioning. The bathroom was moderately sized with a bath/shower, hairdyer; the complimentary shampoo/conditioner etc were really poor quality. Some complimentary fruit and cakes were provided in the room, but no bottled water. There was a sign in the room that claimed that the tap water was safe to drink, but we did not risk this.

There is a large swimming pool with plenty of sun lounges and umbrellas – a nice area to relax. There is also a shopping area, equestrian facility, tennis courts, fitness centre and a business centre.

There are heaps of restaurants to choose from at this hotel – our favourite was “Italiano”.

Service was clumsy – staff availability was haphazard and aloof. There was often no one available at the reception desk or at the club lounge. On several occasions there were staff present in the lounge, but they were too engrossed in watching TV or talking on their mobile phones to attend to hotel guests. When we were served, the staff were slow and seemed disinterested.

This hotel is a good choice if you are in transit due to its proximity to the airport and the shuttle bus service that is provided.

We spend two days in Concorde El Salam during our staying in Cairo, in September. The hotel itself it's not that bad. The rooms are clean and the italian restaurant was quite good.
It also has a shuttle bus from/to the airport which is almost in walking distance. There is another one shuttle to museum three times a day witjhout return.
What was big disadvantage, was the position of the hotel. Close to the airport, in one of the "best" neighbourhoods in Cairo, as National Geographic writes, Heliopolis, but realy filthy and unpleasant place, with nothing to do around and highly overpricing everything, from the water to the food.
The price is really high for what you buy. Imagine that finally, including taxes and two dinners, without breakfast, we paid about 280 euros. For sure doesn't deserve that money.
What was out of the plan and really annoying was the Ramadan Celebrations. At 5 pool was being closed and everybody was preparing for the "breakfast".It's not about the religion, respect, but in the other hotels Ramadan didn't affect the non-muslim guests.
Concorde El Salam is a good choice if you must be close to the airport but for vacations in Cairo is not value for money. You can find something really better downtown and possibly cheaper.

I arrived at the Concorde for one night before an early flight the next day to London. I was met outside by the doorman who took my bags and pointed me towards reception. Inside, as I rounded the corner to the reception area in the lobby, I ran smack into the middle of a large group of well dressed revelers, accompanied by a band of six tambourines, a trombone, trumpet, several drums and various singers and dancers. As I approached the reception desk, the band blared up, lights for two video cameras fired up and the noise cranked up. The bride and groom descended the central staircase (beautifully attired) and then the wedding party went on in the lobby for 30 minutes or so before going downstairs into the ballroom. Meanwhile, through the back windows of the lobby, I could see the belly dancing and musical performance going on in the the restaurant table-filled central courtyard of this U-shaped hotel. And this was at 10:30PM. How often does this go on, I asked reception. Every day was the response. In summary, this place is a wild, noisy party all the time and if that's what you hate in your hotel public spaces, stay away. However, the rooms are nice, are very clean, the location is extremely convenient to the airport (they have a free shuttle bus every 30 minutes 24 hours a day) and the staff is very nice. I found the entertainment (including the wedding) a nice Egyptian cultural experience and thought the wedding music, while a bit loud, quite good. There is a wide variety of restauarants in the hotel (Asian, sushi, italian, others) and the main restaurant is open 24 hours a day with a varied menu. If you want to get to bed early and get some sleep, I recommend asking for a room on the outside of the hotel rather than an inside room facing the courtyard (where the summer entertainment goes on). The pool looks nice, but seems to close early (sunset) to get ready for the nightly entertainment. If you are doing sightseeing in Cairo, they have a free shuttle bus into the city, but I would NOT recommend this hotel if you are doing the tourist sites -- traffic would make the trip downtown a daily nightmare at most hours. However, I think this hotel is perfectly good and reasonably priced for a pre-airport stay or if you have business in the surrounding area of Heliopolis.
