I stayed there during the new year holidays. It is marvilous, everything is perfect, the rooms the services the staff and the facilities, moreover it is connected to citystars mall which i really like it. One more thing, if u care about breakfast buffet, the best is in Narriot Zamalik.

worst 5 nights in Cairo, considering that its 5 Stars hotel the service was awful i think the management is paying peanuts that they have such monkeys working there.
So many annoying things due to the unprofessional staff
For example:
I checked in at 2:00 am and the AC was not working , lights , shower , didnt find a working plug to charge my handy. So i called the the reception and they guy said one hour !
Another day :
We had a group at the hotel and at 3:00 am we asked if the lobby lounge is available and they can serve a couple of drinks , yes they said. They guy at the bar seated us and we asked for our drinks he replied that his colleague will serve us. After 20 min no one came i found another waiter roaming around and asked him if he can look for someone to serve us our drinks , and then he replied no the bar is closed !

That was my first stay at the intercontinental City stars and it will be the last.

Just returned from 4 nights in Cairo. This hotel was generally excellent with very polite and helpful staff. Service was first class. As there were two of us, both male with separate rooms booked, we were very fortunate to be upgraded to a residential suite which had two on-suite double rooms, huge lounge and a small kitchenette area with microwave, fridge freezer etc. There was also a box bedroom with shower and w.c., must have been for our butler!

My only issue was that it was very cold; Cairo had just had snow for the first time in a hundred years, we found out that our air con was faulty and the only way was down as far as the temperature was concerned, our first night the whole suite was no warmer than 15 degrees, in Cairo!

This was very promptly repaired when we reported this on the second day and we then managed an almost balmy 20.5.

Could not fault the beds or linen in any way.

Room service was used only once but was very fast and vey efficient.

We will stay here again on our next trip to Cairo.

A quick note, although there were three TV's in the apartment, two of them could not be switched off from the remote. The batteries were low in the third. Little things, but in a five star hotel they should be checked.

Very good hotel. I had an executive floor check in which was efficient.

The room was nice. The bed was nice. Home automation excellent but a briefing should be given on how to use.

The club lounge was nice. Its breakfast was good even at the club lounge level.

The only problem was the waiting time for elevators.
