The hotel is very nice, the location is in front of a river, and gives you the chance for great view from the room. Very friendly staff and very polite people. You have many choices of food thanks to the different restaurants you will find inside the hotel. We stayed for 4 nights and we had a great time.

Has all the trimmings you expect from a 5 star big chain hotel. Location fantastic. You can see the Tahir Square as well as the Nile River Panorama, high floor rooms allow tiny view of the pyramids. Club lounge is nice but not great.

As always, the Intercontinental provided superb service in all aspects from rooms to food to concierge. The staff was all well-trained and eager to assist. The room was well-appointed and the facilities were chic but comfortable. The only off note were the few demanding middle eastern seemingly-wealthy and self-important men who demanded a disproportionate amount of time and attention from... More

The staff are extremely helpful, however, the condition of the hotel is poor considering its InterContinental, particularly the bathroom. The size of the bathtub is almost for infant and not for adults. Also, in the bathtub shower is very poor, its like my someone pouring water over your head. I will never stay here again.

Stayed for only one night, we tried pane vino italian restaurant and the food was great along with the warm hospitality of Mr. Hanna and staff. Hotel location is perfect for travelling on foot, room and general condition of the hotel is clean and elegant. Comparing to nile side hotels the price is quite reasonable.

Hotels location is very good. It is located just on the river Rile. Also it is a short walk away from the Egyption museum, El Tahir square and downtown. Security is very strict comparable to an airport, every baggage is scanned and you have to keep your phone and wallet in a tray. Very few things I found lacking: It... More
