Very few experiences can beat staying in a suite (courtesy upgrade) overlooking the Nile. The staff was extremely friendly and made me truly feel like a valued guest. The worst part of my experience was that I only stayed one night at the hotel.

To start with, the customer service provided by the hotel employees is marvelous. I only went there to visit the all-time famous restaurant "Bird Cage", which is considered by many to be the most famous Thai-food restaurant in Cairo. The greeting, the service, and the locations given to me by the staff furthered my delight in the hotel. The experience... More

I have visited the Semiramis many times on business and always found the hotel a pleasure to stay in. The restaurants are provide excellent food and service especially the Thia one. The beds and bedding are first class. A Nile view is well worth the extra.

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in Cairo! With great value for money, the Nile view rooms are simply superb. We were a group of 30 people so the hotel threw in a complementary Nile cruise one evening with free soft drinks! The breakfast that goes with the room is oneof the best I have ever... More

Good place to stay in Cairo. Nice restaurants. The high floor room with river view and balcony was very good. New room services as well. It is a business oriented hotel, so the services were nice and efficient but not quite that personal.

Great location next to the Nile and the Egyptian Museum, really good service and room amenities. The bed was so comfy and the air conditioning worked well. The bathroom and the balcony are a little tired and it would be nice to have a few movie channels available. The breakfast, restaurant options and room service were very good. My only... More

This was our first trip to Cairo and this hotel made it a very pleasant experience. To go see the sites at dusty hot places by day and to come back to an oasis with a hell of a view is an awesome experience. The rooms are fabulous with fabulous bathrooms. The water pressure in the shower is ridiculous. Truly... More
