“Perfect Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The hotel was comfortable, fairly quiet given its location....Breakfast is good. For eating out, shopping and even the sights it is in a very good location. The only criticism I have is that the bed linen seemed only just to fit the bed,,,,,and my husband had to complain because the gym was not open when he went there and he had to wait 20 mins for someone to open it (even though it was supposed to be open), Tea and coffee facilities in room and complimentary water daily.

Room Tip: if you ask for no smoking room, it is actually a no smoking floor

This is the economic version of the Intercontinental City Stars hotel (& Convention Center)... It is ok but Not fancy. The location is excellent being adjacent to the City Stars Mall complex (the largest in Egypt), provides convenience for food shopping and entertainment. The airport is 10min by Car. Gym and pool are small but have the necessary stuff. My room had no view..

Room Tip: 6th floor next to the Gym & pool, you may ask for a street view, but may be noisier..

I stayed in Holiday Inn from 14th December to 16th December 2013. The rooms are great, the pool is small but it's good , the food provided is wonderful , the location is the best ever in Cairo near to the airport and beside the largest Mall in Cairo " City Stars".

The staff is really friendly and especially the support i received by the Concierge Desk (Mohamed Said , Akram & Peter) for a city tour was really wonderful.

I would recommend the hotel for all the travelers to Cairo, Egypt.

Front desk and front office staff were helpful, friendly and constantly acknowledged my elite status with the IHG group.

Rooms were comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was sumptious.

Location is by far their biggest asset, it being located near the airport as well as next to one of the best malls in Cairo.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

I generally don't expect much from this chain, but this hotel, especially in Cairo, proved surprising. The rooms were nice, the gym was actually pretty great (minus the busted AC a day or two, but the very nice attendant tried to make up for it by offering free training) and breakfast was decent. The room service was ok, but the restaurant downstairs generally lacked a lot of options and the service was painfully slow - 45 minutes for a bowl of soup, and no, they weren't busy. If you need to be in Nasr City, you have a lot of options, but this one, while not the swankiest (I believe there's an InterCon nearby), it provides more than enough bang for the buck.

Room Tip: You'll want a non-smoking room. Trust me.
