Stayed here for a short business trip. Confortable hotel with very pleasant and available staff. The room (King) was clean and spacious but with no "wow" effect. But then maybe I've become a snob!
Sufficient seating in the lobby to receive guests/clients which can often prove to be a problem when on business.
The leisure facilities are top notch with a large fitness centre, spa and pool.
For those who are travelling alone, the City Stars shopping mall is a god send. With over 600 shops and plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, bakeries etc you are spoilt for choice and can easily while away those free hours between meetings. There is even a cinema. The mall rivals with many I've seen in the Emirates.
The hotel is not in the centre of Cairo of course but much nearer the airport. It took me 30 mins to get into town one morning and I think that we were lucky. It could easily have take 15-20 minutes more. I suppose it really depends on what you need.
This is not an extremely luxurious hotel but you know that you will be getting the usual level of quality and service that Interconti is known for.
Would't hesitate to recommend it.
