Ive had a beautiful and relaxing stay. The hotel is a great getaway. Staff are helpful, welcoming, and there to assist you in anytime. The breakfast is great, the rooms were great, the ambience was chilled and relaxing, and the value was well received. The location in the middle of Zamalek is a great advantage as well.

The hotel is located in one of the best spots in Cairo, peaceful neighborhood with access to the best dining options in town, everything is 5-10 mins walking distance at the most. You will enjoy the small used books booths, bookstores and galleries scattered everywhere in the surrounding streets. The staff is very welcoming and helpful , breakfast is nice... More

There is no better place to stay, especially for a long trip, than this hotel, right on the Nile, in the Zamalek neighborhood. This is one of the only neighborhoods conducive to walking around and getting the feel for Cairo. The hotel is comfortable. The rooms are not huge but they are clean and comfortable and the staff is lovely.

This is a typical old school Hilton. It was built many year ago when the city was still under developed in a great location and was left like this afterwards. So, the hotel needs major reconstruction, the rooms are terrible just because they are very old. I will not describe the pool because I do not think that someone will... More

My stay at Hilton Zamalek was an excellent stay. The people were welcoming and made us very comfortable. The hotel service was excellent and they catered to all our needs. The hotel pictures are a true representation of the hotel. Most importantly the hotel and neighbor was safe to walk around by myself, at night. The businesses around the hotel... More

Nice, clean, although empty hotel, though.thar may be down to the time of year or recent (ish) problems in Cairo/Egypt. We felt very safe the whole time and the staff and local people were very friendly and welcoming in. You can get a cab easily to/from the airport for $15.

The facilities are great, the staff are very helpful and prompt. The business center was efficient, but the printers were hard to access; had to email the document to the front desk staff to be able to print. Unfortunately, the wifi didn't work as well as we hoped.

The hotel is well located, the safety is OK, good fitness facility (even if only one bike) but ask for a room with a view on the Nile, to be at the backyard is too sad, especially because the hotel was almost empty.
