I've been visiting Cairo for many many years (more than 30), sometimes for business, sometimes for pleasure. In all the years of visiting, the Hilton Zamalek Residence is by far my favorite place to stay. And now that I've found it, I won't stay any where else. The staff is excellent - friendly, attentive, helpful and very professional. I don't think I've meet a better group of hotel employees any where. The rooms are impeccable - super clean, large and comfortable. The hotel amenities, from the restaurants, swimming pool to the workout facilities were all perfect.
And the location couldn't be better. If you are visiting Egypt as a tourist, downtown Cairo and the Museum is only a 5 - 10 minute cab ride away. The hotel is located on the peaceful and beautiful Island of Zamalek - so you can have some peace and quiet when returning the the hotel after a busy day. Just about everything is within walking distance to the hotel; restaurants, grocery stores, book stores, cleaners and other shopping.
I can't say enough about this hotel and highly recommend you give it a try. If you are a regular to Cairo, I can guarantee this will become your place to stay.
