“Comfortable stay for those doing business in 6th of October”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

First of all, the location of the hotel cannot be described as Cairo, it is located way beyond the city, about 45 minutes drive from the airport, assuming that the Cairo traffic doesn't live up to its reputation. I had business in the relatively nearby Smart Village technology campus and stayed here as the hotel there is not yet complete. On request, the hotel was able to organise safe and punctual transport there, in fact every request I had of the front desk staff and concierge was met and I felt they were happy to help. The entire staff were very friendly and I really felt welcome at the hotel.

Given the price of the hotel, the facilities exceeded expectations, the hotel is set in a nice ground with BBQ facilities and a great looking swimming pool. Despite the early time of year, I was tempted to take a dip! I was also happy to find an ATM and a shop which sold essentials along with much tourist tat.

The restaurant was also excellent, with a varied menu. Room service is offered too, and I found service took maximum 30 minutes call to door. The room price included breakfast, which was consisted of a wide variety of cooked food, including a Chef who would cook eggs to your desire, and a wide selection of pastries and breads.

Room was also suitable given the price, by no means luxurious but has all the basics including room safe and shower but not bath.

The only points of criticism was a bed that was a little too firm for my liking, curtains that did not close all the way along the window, and internet access that was expensive, 155 egp per day and absolutely appallingly slow. I was annoyed to pay for something that was not suitable to achieve what I wanted.

All in all, would definately recommend the Novotel.

Away from the airport. Clean ok rooms and service. Average food. The pool is the focus. Just about makes it worth your bucks.

I have stayed here a few times in the last couple of years whilst working just outside Cairo.
The hotel is modern, clean, has a decent gym and swimming pool, we are happy to return on most trips.
The only small area of criticism I would have is of the food, the buffet is generally not inspiring, and the bar only serves very basic bar snacks such as burgers, club sandwich etc. The one exception I found was during one stay, I think on a Tuesday night they move the buffet outside and there is some entertainment, on this occasion the food was excellent, dont know why they cant offer that quality and variety every night.
I usually end up ordering from the room service menu which is more comprehensive, not too expensive and actually quite good.
Comparing it with the Cairo Airport Novotel it is much more modern and pleasant at 6th October City, but the choice of restaurants is better at the Airport hotel.
You can get a taxi direct to anywhere in Cairo from the booking station at the front door, and there is nearly always a taxi outside waiting anyway, I think its about EP300 to the airport.
If I was coming to Cairo on holiday, I would stay closer to the center, for the price they ask, for us it is convenient to use for business.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool, the view the other side is of dusty wasteland, and if you get a roo...

This hotel is quite a way from the airport. We had arranged a transfer in advance rather than negotiate with local taxi drivers, but unfortunately, our driver couldn't quite locate where this hotel was!! It's new and not very busy (yet). To be fair, it was fine, but nothing special. Good value for the money; we paid around 67Euro per night for a family room via a discount hotel booking site (rack rate is advertised at $250 US). It wasn't a very big room, I think they class 'family' as having two small children (ours are 13 and 10) but it was just about big enough. Nice pool, friendly staff (especially considering it was Ramadan), food ok (buffet style or a la carte). The hotel is walking distance (if you can stand the heat and the constant beeping of car horns) from the Mall Of Arabia, which is an upmarket shopping mall of vast proportions. Don't book any taxis from the hotel though; they advertised at 55 Egyptian pounds for a short taxi ride to the next mall along (HyperOne), and even then the booking clerk tried to get 75 pounds for it! Hailed our own one on the way back, who asked for 20 Egyptian pounds, which we happily paid.

We stayed in Cairo one week.The hotel staff were very friendly and incredibly helpful. Our pre-teen daughter has Coeliac Disease and the chefs in the restaurant went out of their way to create a lovely gluten free meal for her every time we dined there (coeliac disease is not well recognised in the middle east) - she was treated like a VIP!

I used Novotel 6 october hotel about a week ago for a conference, the hotel is an excellent venue for conference compared to the rates they offer, the service is really good and the staff are so helpful and polite and they are so flexible just to satisfy you.
The lunch was nice for a conference but not really what you look forward to if you are on leisure. There is a very nice pool that is not heavily used by tourists due to the fact that the majority were attending conferences. The hotel is in 6 october city which is almost 30 kilometres away from down town however a new mall called mall of arabia l has opened like 15 min walk from the hotel with a big hyper market and many shops like gap, monsoon, tramline, vodafone shop and several popular coofee shops.
