After reading the reviews on tripadvisor I was extremelty concerned, however none of the negative things that others have complained of occurred during our trip.
We booked 5 nights at the InterCon Citystars, with a further 2 later in a 2 bedroom residence suite which was huge. In fact, they gave us a 3 bedroom suite with 3 bathrooms. We had wanted club access but the residence suites are in a separate building across the pool from the hotel. The kitchen meant that we could get food from Citystars next door or the eateries across from the hotel. I recommend Ashrawi that make Falafel and Shawerma!
I strongly recommend the meet and assist at Cairo airport as you are whisked through by someone meeting you at the gate that your aircraft arrives on, and they take your passport to immigration meaning that you don't have to queue. Check in took place in the Mercedes E Class meaning that we could go straight to the room.
The reports of checking in taking over an hour I can't fathom as the reception and concierge serve guests instantly.
The hotel boasts everything you would expect from an InterCon, and is one of the best hotels I have seen in Cairo, and I have traveled extensively.
