“Very good hotel with wonderful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

Cairo has not been getting good reviews lately in the news, but you should not let that hinder you from going. The Conrad proved to be a wonderful hotel with a fantastic staff.

Breakfast - They setup a wonderful selection of foods in the 2nd floor restaurant. It was complimentary to me, but that may be because I have status with Hilton Honors. I tend to think it is the same for everyone, but do check.

Internet - The internet was very good. I did not try Netflix, but Skype worked fine for me.

Location - First, let me say that the view of the Nile and city was quite nice. However, the location was my biggest disappointment. I did not feel that it was practical to walk anywhere interesting. Others could correct me on this. Generally, I walk all over when visiting a city, but the politics of Egypt did give me pause on doing so. I would be inclined to investigate the Hilton on Zamalek Island next time. I hear that it is a better walking location. Please note that I NEVER felt any concern for safety at the hotel.

Staff - Absolutely superb. Everyone (Bellman, Front Desk, Executive Lounge, Concierge, Pool Staff, Room Service, etc...) were fantastic. There was NO except to the wonderful service I received. On check-out I asked one of the front desk staff if they had any coins that I could acquire. (wanted souvenirs) The gentleman gave me two for me to have. The cost of those 2LE were minimal, but he did not have to do that. Just a wonderful example of a caring staff. These folk strive to provide excellent service, and take enormous pride in their work. I could give several great examples.....

Concierge - They did a wonderful job of arranging a drivers for me. I credit the Concierge with the fantastic service because they developed the relationship. I did not have to worry about being hassled or troubled during my jaunts. Again, I give credit to the Concierge for keeping high quality service vendors.

Pool - A heated pool on a breezy day is a great thing. You can get in without feeling like you need to swim laps to keep warm. Very pleasant with a helpful staff nearby. I did not notice if you could eat at the pool.

Room / Facilities - The room and facilities are quite nice. They are not spectacular. The TVs were nice flat screens. It will not be too long before they should consider updating the furnishings in the room or undergo some remodeling. That will be hard with a low tourist visits due to bad stories in the news. Still, I have NO complaints with the property.

Without question I could recommend staying here for your visit to Cairo. You can feel secure, relaxed, enjoy wonderful service, and take advantage of a great concierge service to plan your ventures throughout the city.

After my 2 stays in Conrad Cairo I have to say that the value for guests is very high. You can experience a perfect cuisine as well as the quality of fitness and relax services. The pool is amazing and service of the staff take care about all of your hotel stay. I have a very good experience with business centre. On he other side I will appreciate the higher internet speed and more stable connection.

Albeit dangerous condition in Egypt, it was worth to stay in Cairo for sight seeing. The hotel is located in the downtown. They always do the safety check at every entering. I felt safe in the hotel, although I couldn't hang around by myself at al.

The hotel staffs are very nice and well trained. They know what customer oriented mind is. I stayed here for 3 nights, and they exceeded my expectations in every aspect.

The executive lounge in 22nd floor is great. If you can, get a room at executive level. it will pay for itself. After 6pm, they serve some finger food. It so nice that we keep staying untul 8PM. Again, great value and service.

The breakfast was nice. the staffs were very helpful and friendly. The choice of foods is plenty. I loved their fresh pita bread made right on site.

We stayed with 2 youngs kids, and they did put an extra bed in our 2 double room. the room was spacious even with an extra bed. the bedding was very comfy. House keeping day and night was great. View of Nile river is unforgetable. the house keeping crews alwyas asked me whether I need anything else.

Bathroom is large and modern. The water pressure in a separate shower is great. I alwyas had a great shower every morning. All bathroom amenities are well stocked (far more than enough). Again, great service.

This is one of few hotels I never found any negative points. All are great and this hotel is highly recommended if you plan to visit Cairo. The staffs will do all they can do to help.

Room Tip: ASk for a room with river view. If with kids, ask for an extra bed. Executive floor is nce.
