GOOD POINTS 1. Staff are very kind and friendly 2. They speak good English 3. The breakfast is good. I enjoyed the juice options. 4. If your room is facing the Nile, you will have breathtaking views. BAD POINTS 1. Room is a bit old and stuffy. 2. The carpet smells like cigarette smoke.

For quality room and good service AVOID this hotel.... overall service is absolutely terrible 00000 stars hotel. Awful experience - for going over my initial deposit (USD 1000) the management locked me out without notice. Upon returning from a long day in the office and unable to access the evaluator I approached the front office only to be told "the...

Living up to the Intercontinental name, the hotel was very good. Located at Tahrir Sq. within 5 minutes of the Egyptian Museum, it has brilliant views over the Nile. Good place for the city-center part of our vacation. Several of Cairo's top 5 restaurants are located within the hotel, so this was a big plus. The Thai restaurant was outstanding...

Stayed in room in 10th floor. Hotel has a nice ambiance and location, being very close to Tehrir square and overlooking the Nile river. The room had a bath tub and facility for warm and cold water. However even after cleaning of the room I found some hairs inside the bathtub which put me off. The hotel lobby is not...

Without a doubt, Cairo is experiencing a lack of tourism due to recent-ish events. Swift check in and recognized for my IHG loyalty. Assigned a club room with club access. The room felt slightly dated, but was very clean and everything functioned - I had some of my best sleep in ages in this bed. The room had a balcony...
