I was last in Cairo 2 weeks before this trip and stayed at another '5 Star' hotel on the Nile, at a marginally cheaper rate. There was no comparison. The check in staff at the Semiramis were friendly and very professional, and I really appreciated the fact that they didn't insist on taking my small trolly bag from me, just... More

We enjoyed the Nile view hotels. Very busy lobby downstairs. ...has coffee shop, business center etc. in the downstairs. Our rate included breakfast-which was an amazing spread! There was freshly baked cookies for hte kids every afternoon. The restaurants on site were pretty good. Let our family of 5 stay in one room with an added bed...which was great! We... More

Our stay was for for six days in mid January. We booked the Seminaris because of its great central location, adjacent to the Nile and a short walk to the Cairo Museum. We booked a Club room, which for the most part is similar to the standard bedrooms, and found the rooms spacious, comfortably furnished in a tasteful Egyptian motif... More

We arrived at this hotel the day before the Cairo demonstrations began with Odysseys Unlimited, our 24-person tour group. Our immediate impression was one of a quality establishment--very clean, and our room especially was nicely furnished with very white and fresh linens and towels. Hotel provided slippers, robe, and bottled water. We were on the 28th floor with a balcony... More

This is a beautiful well kept hotel with very nice rooms and baths. Balconies are large with great Nile views. Bar and lobby great. Small spa and exercise area but nice pool. Good choice with a 10 location. Much nicer than some of the chain hotels. Don't think you would be disappointed

We were part of a large tour group and had rooms on the 7th floor with a partial view of the Nile. The hotel lobby is very spacious and the staff courteous. Our room was very nice and modern, but there are no top sheets on the bed...just a heavy down comforter. (Egyptians think 60F is cold and we saw... More

The hotel is very clean and well-run. Good service. A place this clean is a nice thing in a dusty environment like Cairo. It's important to be able to relax after a day of dealing with the realities of Cairo and this hotel provides that relaxation. The breakfast is excellent and priced very reasonably. Room spotless. Quiet. Try to get... More
