Hotel Pyramisa Cairo Hotel and Casino Hotel 5 star
Easyexperts
60 El Giza Street Cairo, Egypt
Amy Adejokun Section editor

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.

    Location 1.0 /10

    The main asset 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 try Egyptian specialties or buy anything you might need. This is an ideal establishment for people who want to stay in downtown Cairo and remain close to the tourist sights of the city. Its 100% Arabic atmosphere will plunge you into this fascinating culture.

    Accommodation 6.45 /10

    The hotel includes some 377 guest rooms and you may choose between a view of the swimming pool the city, or the Nile. The standard rooms (most of which have not yet been renovated) afford a swimming pool view. Located on the bottom floors of the hotel; these rooms don't let in a lot of natural light and the terrace is small. Both the furniture and the wall-to-wall carpet are in reddish tones boasting oriental patterns, which further darkens the space. The bathrooms are equally dark but include all the necessary amenities. As in the rest of the room, everything is clean and well kept. If you choose a renovated room (with a Nile or city view), the difference in the level of comfort and the esthetic value of the furniture are obvious. Everything has been redone, the interior has been tastefully decorated and the furniture seems to have been chosen for its European style. These rooms are bigger than the standard ones and they afford a view of the city and of the Nile in the distance. They occupy the upper levels and, thanks to their clever layout, benefit from a flood of natural light. They include a plasma screen TV (a rare feature in Cairo hotels) with foreign channels.

    Overview 6.20 /10

    The hotel houses some 377 guest rooms, 2 swimming pools, a nightclub, a casino, a sauna, and a business centre. The entrance hall is a splendid marble-clad area with oriental motifs adorning every corner. The building is a bit old but was undergoing renovations during our visit. Try to stay away from the rooms that haven't been renovated yet.

    The rooms start on the first floor, but you should really ask for one on the upper levels if you don't want to be disturbed by the noise from the street or the swimming pool when you are trying to relax and get some rest. The hotel has 2 swimming pools, and although they are quite small, they allow guests to enjoy a quick dip and escape Cairo's sweltering heat. The area surrounding the pool is covered with artificial lawn and boasts deckchairs, chairs, and tables for some relaxing moments in the sun. The hotel also has 7 conference rooms (ideal to conduct your business) and a piano-bar where you can enjoy the evening dances and concerts. If you'd rather dance the night away, we recommend that you try out the nightclub. The hotel has 4 restaurants with the main one having a capacity of 190 seats. It offers a buffet of international specialties, a show cooking area where you can see how your meal is being prepared, and an oriental corner where you can taste local specialities. If you feel like enjoying a Chinese, Indian, or Italian restaurant, you'll be pleased to know the hotel has all of these. Finally, if you are looking to get into shape, the hotel has a large fitness centre with an enormous bay window and a very friendly trainer. As for the casino, you should note that you're not likely to meet any Egyptian guests, as they're forbidden from entering these types of establishments.

      • 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 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.
