We stayed at the Conrad Cairo for three nights following a cruise on the Nile. We booked as part of a package so transfers from the airport to the hotel were all included, which was useful as it is quite a distance.
There was a problem at check in as the hotel computers were down which meant that we couldn't get our room key. The staff were very helpful though, and let us into our room and brought the key to us when it was ready.
The rooms are huge and really nice. The bed is one of the comfiest I have ever slept in - a really good nights sleep.
We had room service on one night and the prices are quite steep compared to what you can pay if you leave the hotel, however it depends on how brave you are feeling. The meal was large and there were lots of free extras. There aren't many places to eat by the hotel and on the first night we walked to the main cafe area which took about 35 minutes and I have never been so scared. Crossing roads was mental. I would recommend you take a taxi (don't pay more than 15Egyptian pounds one way) and even though the traffic was crazy I felt much safer.
The hotel pool was stunning. It was large, with plenty of sunbeds and very rarely busy. All the staff at the hotel were lovely.
The only problem we had was the fact that although there were smoking and non smoking areas in the breakfast room, that didn't seem to stop people smoking wherever they were sitting, which for two non smokers wasn't great, but it's only to be expected in a country where you can smoke anywhere.
The pyramids are an easy distance away to get to, again we booked through our holiday provider.
While we were there the hotel restaurants were undergoing renovation, which meant the lobby area got quite noisy with work going on overhead. It also meant that a lot of the restaurants weren't open. However once work has finished I am sure they will be as nice as the rest of the hotel.

Staying at the Conrad was a great experience for me. The service is great, the breakfast's delicious and so varied. I'm eager to go back and have a swim in their foot-shaped superb swimming pool!

We loved the Conrad - they helped us with transportation to and from from the airport and even organized tours of Gisa, Memphis, Saqqar, Islamic Cairo, and Coptic Cairo while we were there. Outstanding tours and well worth the money you pay for them. But if you are looking for an authentic Egyptian experience on one of the diner cruises on the Nile, don't book through the hotels. It was totally cheesy. Exquisite rooms and 5-star service from all of the hotel staff. The breakfasts were amazing - try the fresh watermelon!

Booked Conrad through the company as we were scheduled to attend a conference. We picked Conrad as it is perceived as the higher end of the Hilton chain but it was far from it. Incredibly SMALL lobby. Pool is too small and crowded, coffee shop in teh lobby is no better than a 3 star. The fitness centre is equipped with enough stuff but rather small. Having been to other hotels during this stay including Sofitel, Grand Hyatt and Marriott I would say try them instead. Even the Hilton Ramses has more life to it than the Conrad. Speacial thanks to the concierge Mr Amir though.

We spent 3 days in Cairo at the Conrad commencing 27th January. We had booked an executive room with access to the Executive Lounge which provides continental breakfast and sandwiches, tea, coffee and soft drinks free all day plus 2 hours of free alcoholic drinks each evening.
Getting from the airport by the Cairo Airport Shuttle Bus was very easy and we had the bus to ourselves for 80 Egyptian pounds.
The check in at the Conrad could take place at reception or at the executive lounge. As the reception was not busy we checked in there and were quickly in our room. The room was quite a reasonable size with comfortable beds, settee, chair, desk and TV (although not many English programs). There was a view of the Nile and the Pool. The bathroom was spacious with large shower and soaking bath.
The location of the hotel was OK and although you could walk to the Museum you really need to take a taxi for about 20 Egyptian pounds (make sure you have change as the taxi driver will claim not to have any). The Museum is very interesting although the price of entry to the Mummy room felt like poor value at an additional 100 Egyptian pounds compared to 60 Egyptian pounds for admission to the whole Museum. Crossing the road by the Museum is a nightmare and not only from the traffic. We had a number of locals who wanted to show us the shortcut via the underpass which would turn out to be a souvenir shop and in the opposite direction to the one you wanted. The traffic pollution is very noticeable and I was concerned at one stage about being out of doors in the smog. However on our second day it was much better and we spent a couple of hours around the pool which was very nice after a morning at the Pyramids.
The waiters in the restaurant and executive lounge and the room boy were excellent as was breakfast in the restaurant and the snacks and drinks in the Executive Lounge. There were separate sections for smokers in the restaurant and executive lounge so you could get smog indoors and out if that is your preference.
The fixed price hotel car round trip to the Pyramids was very expensive so I asked them to call a taxi. The concierge and doorman tried hard to promote the hotel car telling us that there would be no way to get a taxi back etc. but I stuck to my guns and the hotel car was offered at 120 Egyptian pounds for a one way trip. We had a great time at the Pyramids after getting rid of the aggressive self styled official guide – this was no easy task and he needed a very firm talking to. We had no problem finding a return metered taxi who charged us 40 Egyptian pounds including tip.
We had flown with BMI which was excellent as was their new lounge at Heathrow. The premium economy seats which we had on the return journey are very spacious however the economy seats for our outward journey were quite adequate for the 5 hour flight.
