      The hotel is in a good location and the room was clean, the bed comfortable. If you ask, you can get eggs cooked fresh for breakfast. However, I requested a superior room because the room details stated that superior rooms have a balcony, and mine did not. This was very disappointing since this was the only reason I requested a superior room. Instead, it had a kitchenette which is strange and made it feel like a self contained apartment rather than a superior room in a hotel. I would have been better off with a regular room. Not long after I arrived, after waiting almost an hour past checkin time as the room was not ready, foul smelling water poured from an outlet under the sink, although I had not turned on the tap. The maintenance man did not listen when I explained where the water was coming from and that I had not turned on the tap, and instead fixed what would have been another problem had I done so, the broken pipe leading from the sink to the outlet above where the water came from. He also fixed a blockage which may have temporarily solved the mystery water issue. A young man came and carefully mopped the floor with antiseptic and clean water, but the smell lingered in the kitchenette for the duration of my stay, which fortunately was only one night. When I went to have a shower I found the hot water was barely lukewarm, not matter how long I let the tap run for. There was no hot water in this room the entire stay. Overall, it was overpriced for what I got, even for Zamalek.

      The hotel is in a good location, right next to the Chinese Embassy. It is very convenient to go to various attractions. The doorway is a typical Egyptian street: the two sides are full of cars, leaving only one lane, taking a taxi to get off at a speed and not blocking a lot of cars. The only downside is that the hotel does not have breakfast.

      We really liked the location. A lively street with lots of quality restaurants, shisha cafes, etc. close to everyone and in the center of Cairo. You should know that my hotel's swimming pool is also that of a swimming club, so it is busy from morning to evening. This is a detail to take into account if you think you will find peace and quiet there. There is what they call a large hammam which is more of a pool between a swimming pool and a paddling pool. This did the trick for us to cool off after a day of visiting in the heat. We didn't have time to hang out by the pool with the amount of things to do in Cairo. The breakfast is correct and good. I find the value for money good. We were put in a room on the street side which seemed to be a problem because of the noise and incessant honking, it's a local habit but ultimately no, we slept very well. We went to bed late between midnight and 2 a.m. so it was quieter.

      the hotel and the staff were good, there’s one lady from the reception with curly hair i liked her the most as she went out of her way to help me when i faced an issue with the bank and made sure afterwards that my issue was resolved. My first room had technical issues but they changed the room immediately for us.

      As my recent holiday plans brought me to Cairo with all the ancient attractions and vibrant culture, I found myself a bit lost in the choice of Hotels the City has to offer. Finally I decided for the Om Khaltoum Hotel in Zamalek and was a great deal! To me, Cairo is not Cairo without this Hotel, spreading the feeling of a Diva full of vibrant life and many stories and, as soon as you enter the beautiful lobby, you get the feeling of Om Klathoum discreetly sitting on a Sofa, sipping mint tea and waiting her Chauffeur. The location couldn’t be better, centrally placed, right in the upscale district of Zamalek, close to various museums and some of the best restaurants and only a short drive away from the Pyramids of Giza. Besides the strategic position, the Hotel also gives a fantastic view on the Nile and some of the mosques in the near neighborhood. The Rooms are very comfortable, clean and offer all the amenities you might need and, the bathrooms are really lovely. I booked a Suite and I highly recommend it, if you are travelling with family and/or friends or, if you just like to have lots of space, as the Suites are equipped with multiple beds and separated bedrooms. The price / value offer is fantastic and your clothes get all the space they deserve. 😊 All the Personnel was extremely kind and professional and deserve a special thanks. Everyone was always of immediate assistance and ready to help with transportation or all the request I had with a smile. Well appreciated! You will find delicious food at the two outside Restaurants, one with Egyptian delights and one with European Menu. The Night Terrace is a lively and popular hotspot in Zamalek among locals with higher standards to enjoy a tasty Cocktail and a good conversation. So for hotel guest a real opportunity to meet great egyptians and expats. The perfect place to make new acquaintances. As special remark, I would like to thank the entire Hotel Team ranging from the very competent General Manager Mr Imad to the office Manager Mrs Reem and of course all the staff like receptionists, cleaning team etc whom are doing a fantastic work! Everyone contributed greatly to this beautiful Hotel experience! All in all it was an outstanding stay and definitely the right choice for my stay in Cairo. PS: sorry that I didn't remember all the family names as everyone always spoke by first name, which made you feel even more welcomed.. PSS: Fighting the COVID pandemic, the hotel has implemented high efforts on sanitizing, packaging individually sanitary items and organizing scheduled time for shared area such as fitness and so.. So all measures are up-to date.

      This hotel was better than expected. We didnt stay at our usual hotel as the prices for Cairo currently are very high so this was the first time at this hotel. The location is really good - pharmacies, restaurants, kiosks and a Metro market all with 30 seconds walk of the hotel and of course Zamalek is really central so a good hub for Uber and getting around the city. Prior reviews are pretty bad but we found the hotel incredibly clean, the side nile view room we had was large, well appointed, the furniture was certainly not tired and we were pleased with the room from a comfort and business perspective. WIFI worked well, a desk in the room and settee and the bed was GREAT. They really dont have any facilities and there is no gym which is an issue for us but we knew this before booking but there are many gyms close by so dont let this be an issue - just GOOGLE! The breakfast by Egyptian standards was alright. The big plus is the omlette/egg station and they also do morning crepes. Fruit, hot food section, breads,, salads etc and frankly it does the job. Egyptians do breakfast really well so although this is a bit below par on an Egyptian level - on a European level it is very good compared to your travelodges and Holiday Inn Express's in the UK. The staff as always are friendly, attentive and yes you need to tip but this is the same in all Egypt - average tip is 20 EGP. Leave something to housekeeping and you will get lot of extras eg extra coffee etc. I liked the hotel, the other reviewers I think may have been there as tourists expecting something different but frankly this is a good tourist class hotel and its always a good sign when you see Egyptians staying which there were.

      After experiencing some problems on our first day arriving in Egypt, we managed to find this hidden Gem in Zamelek. We were welcomed with happy faces from the staff especially the doorman who was super friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and matched the photos provided by the hotel. I would recommend this as it is good value for money and right by 26th July street where you can shop and eat till your heart is content.

      Picture perfect hotel, it was my first night in Cairo, and I didn't even realize at the time how good I had it. Compared to other properties, even other Marriott group properties this one is above and beyond on food and service. Location is beautiful, they awarded me early check in and late check out. As a Titanium Elite they upgraded me to a beautiful room, though I did use a suite night award for it, but it was epic. Room service was very nice, indoor pool and outdoor pool very nice. Indoor pool is amazing just beautiful, feels like your swimming somewhere very unique. The spa facilities can use also the sauna, jacuzzi (many options) overall a great hotel, and would definitely stay again in Cairo. Wish I stayed longer. I will share to all my families and friends

      This is a great hotel for proximity to Cairo International Airport and good value for a 4 star. They supply a free shuttle service every 30 minutes to and from the airport that is only a 5-10 minute ride. The condition of the mini-bus was somewhat tired but it does the job. I used this hotel on my outbound journey whilst transferring flights and again on this inbound one. It is very good for its category level and has a very decent pool in a spacious courtyard area. For both my visits, all the staff were really amazing and accommodated my requests, in particular Noor on reception, who was a credit to the Accor brand.

      This is a top class hotel in a top class location. The staff in all departments were fully trained and very professional. All our requests and questions were promptly dealt with. The buffet breakfast was sumptuous. The only slight disappointment was the rather modest swimming pool with limited seating area, but this is to be expected for such a central downtown location.

      General impression - a normal place to stay for a few nights. Perfect location nearby Egyptian Museum and the Sadat subway station. But this causes a very noisy surrounding: honking cars move just beneath the windows all day long. Helpful staff. A very nice cafe La Poire accessible without leaving the building. Good breakfast, a lot of options changing daily. Coffee could have been better though. The room was cleaned (I moved two beds together and found no dust underneath), but it's quite weary. The window lock didn't work, the fridge was loud. Black mold in the shower was upsetting, too. No iron nor ironing board in the room, but ironing service available at a reasonable price about 50 EGP per piece.

      Nice breakfast on one day. Clean room. Convenient location to train with good walkability. But I expected more from the staff's local knowledge. They had absolutely no idea where a post box was, even tho I'd seen one myself a few days earlier and simply couldn't remember its exact location. Then, no help whatsoever in mailing a postcard bc post offices would be closed for several days. One day's breakfast was disappointing compared to only the day before - the place was inconsistent. Great walking location also meant Uber driver had a difficult time reaching us at one point in the evening, and we walked to them after some confusion. Lively downtown area also means a LOT of street noise. Hotel's wooden floors, doors and hallways were incredibly loud at all hours, and staff was loud in the morning. Bring earplugs.

Not only give me free change, but also give me a subway ticket for free. I found that buying a ticket is really too Seriously, if there is no hotel to give me a ticket, I wait for ten minutes. I am very very grateful. Although the hotel has been a long time, the location is super and sincerely recommended.

The pool is avarage size-not big, not small and the deep is around 165cm. The water needs to be cleaned. But its very good for kids and also for adults. In the night there were swimming courses for kids from outside the hotel, which made the garden area very crowded and noisy. Our big thanks belongs to Mai from reception. She was very proffesional, helpfull and made our stay comfortable.

      Loved the Gabriel Miami!! Let me first start by saying customer service is superb! The minute We pulled up to the property We were greeted at the car with the bell man waiting to collect our bags and guide us to the front desk. Izzy who works at the front desk, had everything ready and waiting for our arrival, she was 10 steps ahead lol and I can appreciate that. Thank you Izzy!! They try their best to accommodate your requests. 5/5 for customer service and staff. Cleanliness of the room 5/5 and comfort 5/5. Did not like that the bar was close for the nights we stayed there so that really was our only con about our stay. I definitely recommend the Gabriel, two thumbs up!

      Lovely smart hotel. Several restaurants. Massage and gym. Staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel nice sbd roomy. Rooms spacious. Would stay there again but if you want to be in the town centre with many shops you need to stay closer to city centre as this, was, about 30 minutes from airport. It didn't matter because everything is a short cheap taxi fare away. Also it's next to a military camp where you can see and hear the soldiers marching from your balcony. If the bugle noise bothers, you at 6am then maybe not for you. Also, but not related to the hotel you'll be woken up at 4am by the, wailing from the mosques but you can't really get away from that can you. The hotel I understand is, owned by the military and so you'll often see soldiers stay there. They weren't any trouble. In fact it made you feel safe.

      Decent staff & cleanliness, nightly rate is okay but they have a serious pricing issue, for example; - WIFI is free but you have to pay for water during breakfast!! - Coffee is double the price of tea!!

      Holiday Inn Citystars, an IHG Hotel

      The hotel is about 20 minutes' drive from the airport. It looks like it should be a relatively long hotel, but fortunately it is clean, the location is good and the service is okay. You don't have to go out of the hotel to get to satars center. You can just turn the corner and go shopping. Very convenient to eat

      Great place to base out of when visiting Cairo. The rooms are clean and the staff (especially Anas) are super friendly while doing whatever they can to make your staff in Egypt the best. They've got connections and can even help with making tour recommendations and reservations. Best of all, there is no pressure to take additional services if the price isn't what you had in mind. They're very accommodating . In fact they are more of a family run business while focusing more on you as a person and less as a customer. You'll come as strangers but leave as friends.

      Prime Residence New Cairo

      New Cairo City
      |5.27km from city center
      Everyone had scared us about taking apartment hotel stays in cairo but this was such a pleasant surprise. The staff Moustafa and Mohammed helped us with our bookings and made sure we had a comfortable stay. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment which was very spacious and clean. The place is in new cairo city which was far from downtown and Giza but it was so easy to get an uber from there and back. The neighbourhood felt very safe even when we came late in the nights. Walking distance from 90 mall.

      Grand Palace Hotel

      I have been staying at Grand Palace for some time. I have been quite comfortable in my stay here, quite happy with my room, and particularly happy with the staff, who have done so much for me. They are now friends of mine and I have no intention of moving to another hotel. I highly recommend anyone stay here, and again, can't say enough about how helpful the staff have been for me.

      Grand Agor Hotel Cairo

      Cairo
      |0.69km from city center
      The hotel is located very close to Tahrir Square, the Egyptian Museum, and a few other old downtown highlights. While the outside of the building looks slightly dilapidated--clearly beyond the control of the hotel--the entrance to the hotel and the interior is nicely done and inviting. Staff are very kind, helpful, and welcoming. The rooms are spacious and have the essentials. In the dining area, complementary tea and water are on offer throughout the day. A few drawbacks: the street noise is very clearly heard from within the rooms (windows are not double paned), and Cairenes LOVE to honk for any and all reasons so you'll still feel very in touch with street life even within the hotel. Breakfast is rather mediocre: expect toast, hard boiled eggs, some jam, and a small cup of yoghurt, accompanied by tea or nescafe. The bedsheets are in serious need of updating (they are extremely rough and scratchy, making sleeping difficult). The bathrooms are an afterthought - just a corner in the room cordoned off by half-frosted glass, so it is recommended that you are very comfortable sharing all bodily functions with whomever you share the room. Despite a clear 'no smoking' sign at the front desk, staff still smoke in common areas (entry, dining area). We stayed in the room at the far end of the hallway (there are only six rooms) and could smell the smoke very clearly from inside our room with the door shut. When I went to pay for our room at checkout, one staff member sat directly in front of me smoking. I called him out on it, pointing at the 'no smoking' sign right in front of us, and he apologised profusely and moved away with his cigarette. I am 100% confident he resumed smoking inside as soon as we left. Some of the basics aren't looked after: the room we were given had no pillowcases on three of our four pillows, and only one towel. The rest of the linens were out at the cleaners, and since there was only one person on staff, we had to stand in for the staff at the front desk so they could run out and pick up the clean linen. Rooms don't come with soap, but we were given a bottle of liquid soap when we asked. Early checkin is USD 25 on top of the regular room charge. The staff offered to arrange a car back to the airport on our departure, quoting a price double of what we paid to get from the airport to the hotel in the first place. It is recommended to just take an Uber instead (EGP 100-125, depending on traffic and time of day). Overall, it's not a bad hotel, and the staff's kindness goes a long way to compensate for the weaknesses noted above.

      The hotel is located on the 5th floor and there are no staff on the floor. The elevator needs a key to get up. So we were unable to do anything when we arrived, and we asked for help. It took almost half an hour to get to the hotel. depressed! The room was clean, but the mosquitoes were super! We stayed late, and the result was temporarily transferred to the bathroom outside the room, not very convenient. The hotel is indeed in the city center, but on the one-way street, playing Uber is very inconvenient, and the driver always takes a long time to arrive.
