“A modern luxury hotel with a fantastic location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2009

The Safir Suites Zamalek is located right on the River Nile. The rooms are spacious and newly renovated and all the facilities are 5 star. I would highly recommend this Hotel.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2009

Room was beautifully appointed and clean. Everything updated. Comfortable king-sized bed. View overlooking the Nile. Friendly staff. Quiet atmosphere.

Restaurant food was good. Service excellent. Beautiful pool area.

Checkout was a little slow.

Overall, better than the other two 5 star hotels we stayed in Egypt

2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2005

Right on the Nile River bank, overlooking the water and other skyscrapers.

24 floors, but only 7 are being used.

Yes, all suites, but old, really old furniture, carpets, beds.
Most of all, though, there are millions of mosquitoes -- well, maybe only thousands in the bathrooms. Kitchen in grungy state.

Every night we had to spray to kill them so we could take a shower.

If you have lots of children, big family, and don't really care about where you sleep and wake up, then this place is a good deal in Cairo.

We paid $100 per night, 2 bedrooms, kitchen, dining and sitting rooms, 2 baths.
