The hotel is downtown right by the Egyptian museum, However, there really is nothing else around it that is within walking distance. Restuarants are pretty good and better food than room service. The staff (reception and concierge) were NOT performing at the expected level of the Egyptian hospitality experienced everywhere else. Seemed almost bothered to be asked questions and for... More

I was especially pleased at the hospitality of the Semiramis. I met Christine from guest relations and she was delightful to get to know. She was very helpful and informative about Cairo. All of the staff were kind. It was a wonderful experience. If we have the opportunity to return to Cairo, I would come back for sure.

Very nice hotel. We stayed for 3 nights in a Nile view room and two balconies on the 14th floor. The view was amazing. Everything in the hotel was clean. Free wifi in the room is a notable feature. AC seemed powerful enough but we stayed in winter. The bathroom was fine but a bit dated. Apart from the usual... More

The overall quality of the hotel is fair but the guest relation officer Christine is very helpful and made my bad experience with the hotel a good one. The food is good and so is the nile view. Hotel Lobby is old though and meeting rooms for business are overpriced.

The hotel is wonderfully central overlooking the Nile and practically on Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum. The downside of this however is that security is tight in the whole area and whilst some may find this reassuring, I found the roadblocks, tanks and machine gunned security a little off putting. I now realise the location and the recent years... More
