Stayed at the Semiramis for the second time in December, 2012. We decided to initiate our holiday family reunion at Cairo, despite of the difficulties that transition to democracy has posed to this charming and beautiful country. Since protests had recently taken place at Tahrir Square right before our stay, we communicated with hotel management to request an upgrade to a Nile view room and they responded to our request in a swift and accommodating manner.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff, including front desk, concierge, room service, club lounge personnel for their professionalism and excellent in client service. They have made our stay at this hotel very enjoyable and pleasant, consistently, every time.
Semiramis offers an oasis of peace in frantic Cairo. The property has all imaginable amenities, including top restaurants, beautiful spa, top quality hair salon, bank, Egyptian cotton store, handcrafts store and more. You don't need to look for handcrafts anywhere else, the Ali Baba store offers high quality and fairly priced souvenirs, and handcrafts. Ladies, indulge at the hair salon, amazing deals and top quality.
Rooms at the Semiramis are spacious, well equipped with luxury bathrooms, mini bar, elegant furniture and balcony, some of them facing the Nile with a movie like view. Please, do not hesitate to get an upgrade to club lounge status which includes free soft drinks and a selection of alcoholic drinks all day and three meals. Breakfast is probably one of the best I've tried.
I am grateful for having the opportunity to visit this hotel for a second time, and third is a charm... looking forward to it.
