    Location 7.03 /10

    The hotel is located in Heliopolis, a residential area just 3 mi from Cairo International Airport, and is a real oasis of tranquillity - a far cry from the chaos of Cairo. It may be some way from the tourist attractions, but it does seem to be a very good option for spending the first or last couple of days of your stay in Cairo, particularly if your departure flight is early in the morning or your arrival is late in the evening, as you can spend the night just a few minutes from the airport.

    Accommodation 8.95 /10

    The hotel has a selection of 588 guest rooms, all decorated in a traditional yet elegant style. Despite the fact that the building can accommodate some 600 guests, the employees do their utmost to provide a personalised and exclusive service.

    The rooms come in Suite and Cabana categories and are very quiet and fairly large with a huge bed. The light wooden furniture is rather modern and the colours used in the decor consist of lighter shades, which makes for very bright surroundings. Amenities include everything you could need for a luxurious stay: a fully stocked mini bar, a television broadcasting international channels, and even a water heater, all in perfectly clean and very well-maintained surroundings.

    The good-sized bathrooms are fitted with a granite counter and a huge mirror, which increases the feeling of spaciousness. You'll have everything you could need to meet your hygiene and personal care needs, including a selection of Miller Harris hospitality products.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    The hotel offers its guests a wide range of conveniences and personalised services that will be useful to both business travellers and tourists alike.

    The entrance hall is welcoming and, like the rest of the hotel's facilities, is decorated with particular charm.

    With regards to accommodation, the hotel houses 588 guest rooms, all decorated in a traditional yet elegant style, and despite the fact that the building can accommodate some 600 guests, the hotel employees do their utmost to provide a personalised and exclusive service.

    This really is a great place for a luxurious and relaxing stay, not least due to the presence of a well-being centre, complete with relaxation and massage rooms, a sauna, and jacuzzis. If keeping fit is more your thing though, fear not, as the hotel also has a gym, 3 outdoor clay tennis courts and 2 indoor squash courts. Of course, you could always take a dip in one of the 2 outdoor pools (with a special children's area), one of which has a bar so you can enjoy a refreshment without having to get out of the water! There is even a thermostat so that the temperature of the water can be adjusted according to the time of year.

    If you're looking to rebuild your strength after a day of intense activity, why not relax in one of the dozen or so bars and restaurants at the hotel? You can sample a few of the exquisite dishes on offer from around the world (Lebanese, Japanese, Italian, etc.) or enjoy a cocktail in very lively surroundings.

    Last but not least, the hotel also has various garden areas, a small children's park, a functions room, a bank (open 24 hours a day) a business centre and several event venues.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    The hotel has just short of a dozen bars and restaurants from which to choose, giving guests the opportunity to sample some exquisite dishes from around the world (with Lebanese, Japanese, Chinese and Italian restaurants), not to mention the very lively cocktail bar. All the establishments are very originally decorated in an elegant and exclusive style and some, such as the Egyptian Night bar/restaurant, provide live musical entertainment with dancing every evening starting at 7:00pm.

    The Italian restaurant is also not to be missed, particularly for those who love their pasta, as what you'll find here is some of the best pasta in the world, in all its forms! Remember not to eat anything before you go, though, as the cuisine is not only delicious but also very copious! If pasta isn't really your thing, why not try one of the salads, the fish soup, or one of the other exquisite dishes on offer. Whatever you go for though, remember to leave room for dessert - it'll be worth it!

    The main buffet restaurant is open 24 hours a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner). It serves a variety of international cuisine and even has an area set aside for show-cooking and live cooking demonstrations - the perfect opportunity to watch your favourite dishes prepared before your very eyes. This restaurant also overlooks the swimming pool and has classical music playing in the background.

      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.

      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 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 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.

      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.
