The rooms are wonderfully big with a nice balcony providing a view of the city (I am sure there were rooms with a Nile River view, however we dined at the restaurants which provided us with that view). Pool area is beautiful and tidy. No towels laying around. Shopping in the hotel is great and so is the hair salon.... More

Well this hotel is just in the best place it can be, you can stay in and enjoy the restaurants within the great view of Nile river, loose or earn some money in the casino or just stay without doing any of those but again relaxed and comfortable. Be careful while going out on your own, Cairo is not safe... More

I was only here for one night and arrived very late with an early check out, so can only really give a minimal review based on my short stay. However, this is a fabulous hotel right in the heart of Cairo. The rooms are clean and spacious - but definitely have a 90s feel to them (striped wall paper, patterned... More

Housekeeping services were very prompt and efficient. The beds extremely comfortable. The breakfast spread was huge and the staff at the coffee... More

I don't normally stay in the mega hotels, but the price was right and reviews solid. Our family of 4 spent 5 nights at the Semiramis. It's huge, but the personal service makes it feel much smaller. The staff is so friendly and helpful. The hotel is offering some good value right now during this slow period in Cairo tourism.... More

I love this hotel mainly for its breakfast selection. It is one of the best hotels I stayed at in Cairo. Rooms are a bit worn out and need a touch of renovation. The view is amazing and balconies are large enough. I would specially recommend this hotel if you are in Cairo for business.
