I like this hotel because the rooms are clean and pretty well kept. Breakfast is included in the price, and there was a nice selection of meat, cheese, and other items for breakfast.

The hotel is located on an island, and it takes forever to get out of the island especially in Cairo traffic.

My wife and I had a great stay here. We arrived from a long flight from the states and the staff was helpful and accommodating to get us into our room and ensure we had everything we needed. We had dinner down by the poolside which was very good. They have good security and checked everyone coming an going from the hotel. We felt safe the whole time staying here. The hotel was great making us a breakfast box for our busy days when we were leaving early. Great stay.

For any business stay I would strongly recommend Hilton Cairo. It has a very central location and very helpful staff. I suggest a breakfast included stay. The rooms with a nile view offers a really facinating view of city and Nile itself.

The location is very good. It is a safe area. The view of Nile from the guest rooms is excellent. The breakfast spread is adequate. Do not be fooled by the Indian dishes though, the Indian dishes at breakfast were nothing like what the names suggested. For e.g the Dal Vada placard had some potato concoction in the hot dish which is nothing like a Daal Vada. The hot dish labelled Utthapam had some vermicelli thing which is NOT utthapam. Rest all....excellent place to stay.

An island of calm and comfort, the Hilton Residences located on Zamalek is a home away from home. From the moment you arrive the front desk, through to your workout and hitting the comfy pillow, you feel service par excellence. The restaurant offers a full-on tasty breakfast, filled with super foods and healthy choices. Led by a veteran General Manager Incomparable Medhat Samir, I was impressed by a highly attentive and trained staff, particularly Guest Relations Extraordinaire Farida El-Sawy, and a crackerjack security crew befitting the Hilton marque standard. My only regret? I didn’t stay longer than the anticipated week – looking forward to staying again at this gem of residence located on the Nile.

This Hilton is on an island in the centre of Cairo. An oasis - sorry - in the middle of a traffic filled city. The swimming pool overlooks the Nile river and is a great place to relax - after spending an hour or so stuck in traffic trying to cross the city. Due to the current situation in Egypt the hotel is practically empty and so it was a shame given how few guests there were the hotel couldn't let us stay in the rooms overlooking the river for the same price as a standard room.

My room was fine with lots of polished wood, a really comfy bed - with lovely Egyptian cotton sheets of course - and a balcony overlooking Cairo's high rises. The hotel has acres of marble and has a colonial feel to it and all the staff are lovely and really try to help. The towel sculptures - with petals - are a delight to come back to.

The breakfasts and dinner in the hotel restaurant was nothing more than mediocre which was rather disappointing. The bar did a good Egyptian Stella beer but £25 for a bottle of wine???

I am happy to know that you have enjoyed your stay with us, and you liked the hotel location, you are absolutely right, the hotel located in the middle of Cairo however it is away from all heavy traffic and noise it is just set on the bank of the magnificent Nile River. Next time you should stay in one of our deluxe rooms overlooking the panoramic view of the Nile. Thank you.
