The Cairo Marriot is ideal for an unforgettable romantic getaway with your loved one. It consists of two towers and a palace, dating from 1869. This 5 star, sophisticated and luxurious hotel is ideally located at the heart of Cairo, about 15 minutes on foot from the Egyptian museum. The palace itself is full of history as it was once the home of French Emperor, Napolean III, and his wife, Eugénie de Montijo. The guest rooms are housed within the two towers, built later and located on either side of the palace. The beautiful gardens and the wide variety of restaurants, where you can try an array of delicious specialties, are the gems of the hotel.

    Location 5.66 /10

    This 5 star, sophisticated and luxurious hotel is ideally located at the heart of Cairo, about 15minutes on foot from the Egyptian museum. It is the perfect location for taking advantage of the city centre's tourist attractions. The palace (Gezira Palace) was built on the orders of Khédive Ismail, who wanted to use it to host the aristocrats of the time, but also for the inauguration of the Suez Canal. There is definitely no lack of history here. Its most emblematic guests were, without a doubt, the French Emperor, Napolean°III, and his wife, Eugénie de Montijo. At that time, the building's interior design was altered to suit the tastes of the emperors and make them feel at home. Not only is the building decorated very tastefully, but in addition you will find original artistic works among the furnishings.

    Accommodation 9.45 /10

    The hotel has more than 1,000 rooms. You can choose between the quieter rooms overlooking the pool or opt for more luxury with a view over the Nile (there is an added charge for a direct view).

    All of the rooms are very well maintained. The hotel offers its guests little chocolates free of charge upon their arrival. Every room is carpeted and has a small terrace where you can enjoy the view. The decoration is quite modern, practical and functional.

    The bathroom is small but impeccable. It has everything you will need during your stay in Cairo.

    Access to the lounge, where you can enjoy breakfast or dinner, constitutes the main difference between the standard and superior rooms. You can enjoy continental dinners here in this spacious room while looking out at magnificent views of the Nile. Not only that, it also offers smoking and non-smoking sections, as well as two plasma screens.

    Overview 9.70 /10

    This gigantic hotel is ideally located, at the heart of Cairo. It houses more than 1,000 guest rooms, a fitness room (with jacuzzi, sauna, hammam and massage room), tennis courts and a fabulous outdoor pool. Plus, if you love food, the Marriott Cairo hotel has 16 restaurants offering almost every culinary specialty imaginable. Other facilities include two banks (open 24 hours a day) a beauty salon with a hairdresser and a shopping centre, which, in addition to its many shops, also includes a travel agency (very practical when it comes to confirming your return flight). A show room and a casino are also conveniently at your disposition, where you can spend some of your free time.

    For guests staying in one of the superior rooms it may please you to learn that you will have the privilege of enjoying your breakfast or dinner in a larger but quieter lounge, where the views are even more beautiful. It is also very stylishly decorated.

    If you are travelling with children, it is good to know that the Marriott Hotel offers an entertainment program during the months of June, July and August. A limousine service to take you to the airport is also there to make life easier.

    A nice added touch to the outdoor pool is that a section of it is covered, allowing you to take a refreshing dip in the shade.

    Food and drink 9.70 /10

    The hotel offers 16 restaurants which will satisfy even the most refined palates from the four corners of the world. Average sized, they allow you to dine in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere; a pleasant change to the often noisy, larger-sized restaurants. Most of them are to be found inside the hotel.

    Everything has been thought of, down to the smallest detail. Of course you will love the flowers and the paintings, but you will love the wide variety of specialties offered even more! The restaurants are each decorated according to the type of food they serve. On the ground floor, for example, you will find Country Roy's Kitchen. This restaurant, completely decorated in the American style, gives you a taste of not only typical dishes, but also salads, fresh vegetables and an abundance of other culinary delights. However, the most typical American restaurant is JW's Steakhouse, whose walls are covered with photos of famous American celebrities.

    There is also an Irish bar when you can have a drink and a bite to eat. You will be impressed by the Italian restaurant with its pretty entrance and exquisite dishes. Other choices include Chinese and Japanese restaurants as well as a night club where every evening you will be treated to a live show by famous Egyptian singers.

    Omar's Café is the hotel's main restaurant where you can dine on Oriental cuisine or one of the many specialties served daily.

    Near the gardens you will find several splendid restaurants where you can enjoy snacks and drinks throughout the day. This spot is very sunny, pleasant and surrounded by green spaces.

    To know

    Dating from the 19th century, the palace is very old but has been renovated. Measures are taken regularly to ensure that the hotel functions smoothly (the elevators are tested every two years, for example).

    As for the guest rooms, you can choose between a view overlooking the Nile (there is an added charge for a direct view) or one overlooking the swimming pool (these rooms are much quieter).

    Animals are normally not permitted in the hotel but exceptions are occasionally made, especially for visually handicapped guests.

    The hotel also has 3 rooms especially equipped to accommodate physically handicapped guests

    Evening shows are held in the Empress Show lounge.

      This hotel, as its name suggests, consists of 2 towers. One of these has just been renovated and the second is currently closed for improvements but will be reopened shortly. The best things about the hotel are its location, right in the heart of Cairo, and its incredible view of the Nile. The advantage of staying in the middle of the city is that you will be close to many of the tourist activities.

      • Location 5.32

      The Intercontinental Pyramids Park Resort can boast having the largest pool in Cairo and there is no doubt you will greatly appreciate it, not to mention the hotel's proximity to the pyramids. The hotel has 420 spacious guest rooms distributed throughout one 2 storey building and one 3 storey building, but neither has a lift. Every room has a view of the garden, except for the 6 suites overlooking the pool. The common areas and amenities (reception, cafeteria, restaurant and pool) are all in good condition. The corridors, however, as well as some other parts of the hotel, have been a little neglected. This hotel is perfect for a short stay if you wish to unwind in a peaceful setting, but don't expect to find yourself in the city centre.

      The main assets of the Conrad Cairo are its strategic location and the superb views it offers over the Nile. This is a genuine 5 star hotel, located at the very heart of Cairo and just a stone's throw from the Egyptian Museum, as well as many other tourist attractions. It is a great destination for those who really want to get the most out of their time in Cairo. After a hard day's sightseeing around the city, what better than to relax in a peaceful and luxurious hotel which, in addition to its superb guest rooms and facilities, offers highly elegant surroundings and very tasteful decor.

      • Location 1.0

      The main advantage of the Pyramisa Cairo Hotel is undoubtedly its central location, close to the Egyptian Museum, the opera, Cairo Tower, and the Khan El Khalili souk. The neighbourhood also includes a vast selection of restaurants and shops where you can taste Egyptian specialties or buy anything you might need. The hotel doesn't count many Europeans among its clientele; the majority of guests at the Pyramisa is made up of locals, which will give you the opportunity of totally immersing yourself in this fascinating culture. The building is rather big but also quite old and a bit noisy. The marble-clad entrance hall is both majestic and huge, and the interior decor of the hotel is oriental in style. There is a huge difference between the rooms that have been renovated and those that are still waiting their turn. When you book, don't hesitate to insist on having a renovated room, as these afford the nicer view.

    • Ramses II hotel and hostel Ramses II hotel and hostel Ramses II hotel and hostel

      • Value for money 6.99
      • Location 8.97

      The best thing about the Ramses Hilton, located in the heart of the city and on the banks of the Nile, has to be the view it affords of the river, which you can admire from certain parts of the hotel. The hotel occupies a triangle-shaped building, which is why the Nile is only visible from certain rooms. If you choose to stay here, you'll be close to all the touristic activities on offer, such as the Egyptian Museum and Cairo Tower. The VIP area is considerably different from the standard rooms and floors. Don't expect much in the way in luxury if you opt for a single standard room. There is doubt that this hotel does not satisfy the expectations one might have of a 5 star establishment. However, if you decide to stay in a suite or in a superior room, you'll enjoy a spectacular view of the Nile from your room or the lounge area open only to VIP guests. The facilities (the swimming pool is small and badly located) and cleanliness are not on the list of this hotel's strong points. however, it is well located in the centre of Cairo.
