I have been here for ever, everything is good except they have recently changed the inhouse internet service. Good idea put a password system on it and restrict it to residents - great in theory but its a shambles now you cannot get on because there is to many users ? when you do get on you get dropped off after 5 min. You spend more time complaining. IT department either fix it or put it back as it was.

Room Tip: Bring a dongle, and get room facing intercon pool for all the rest bring ear plugs for sleeping

Dear Guest,

Warm greetings from Staybridge Suites Cairo Citystars.

We are very sorry to hear that you encountered some inconveniences during your stay for which we sincerely apologize. It is always through our guests' feedback that we can measure our performance and improve the shortfalls.
As for the internet issue you experienced, we would like to give you a clear picture of what was going on with our internet system. We were in the process of upgrading the internet service at the Hotel. The aim of this upgrade is to secure the Wi-Fi access by preventing non-guests to access the internet, and accordingly maximize the internet speed for a better usage. This happened through a third-party company, and the problem you passed through was during the transitional period of the upgrade. Now, the internet is running successfully and be assured that you’ll not experience such a shortfall in the future.

It is truly a pleasure to serve you and we hope you’ll have a good experience with our service at the Staybridge Suites Cairo Citystars.

Have been here for many months and the staff are most curteous and the other guests are exceptionally friendly. However, this hotel seems to still have IT systems being run by improperly trained people who put system technology above guest service.

Last week the hotel switched to a differant internet software package that runs inbetween the computer and the web. That's right - all computer activity is buffered and tracked by the hotel. Almost as bad, the new system was installed before it had even been alpha tested. The guest complaints caused the hotel to pull the plug on the new system, reinstall the old system and promise to not ever change systems again unless they had a fully tested non-tracking system that had been proved at other properties first.

Afraid this promise was from fantasy of the Arabian Nights, for today the system has disconnected my computer four times, the NOMADIX screen pops up to buffer and track all web activity and critical communications have been lost or delayed.

Guest services five stars.
Room product four stars
Technology - a string and two tin cans would give more bandwidth and reliability.

Room Tip: Bring a dongle so you can connect to the outside mobile phone service.

Dear Guest,
Let me seize the opportunity to thank you for choosing to stay with us and for your time to provide us with your valuable comments. It is always through our guests' feedback that we can measure our performance and improve the shortfalls.

You have covered all the details about the place, service and staff, and this really gives us a clear picture about your experience. First of all, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience encountered while trying to access the internet. This happened during the transitional period of upgrading the internet service at the Hotel through a third-party company. The aim of this upgrade is to secure the Wi-Fi access by preventing non-guests to access the internet, and accordingly maximize the internet speed for a better usage. Being keen to make your time more productive as one of our valued guests, we took prompt response with the IT personnel by visiting your suite personally as soon as the upgrade has been accomplished to make sure that the internet is running successfully and that you’ll not experience such a shortfall in the future.

I would like also to thank you for recognizing our efforts to invest in our people as our goal is to place our guests in the heart of everything we do, and to provide them with the highest level of service.

It is truly a pleasure to serve you and we hope you’ll have a good experience with our service at the Staybridge Suites Cairo Citystars.

I have been living in Staybridge since November 2013. I have opportunities to move out into an apartment but here's what I would miss: Nagwa, Rehab, Adel & Abdullah (two of the chefs), Mira, Sameh, Marian, Amir, Mahmoud(s), Mohamed(s), Amin and so many more supported by one of the most effective leaders I have seen for a long time; Islam. Always a welcoming personal reception, attention-to-detail housekeeping, swift responsiveness to needs among so many other benefits. The key to their success is that they do not see the customers as customers, they treat them like friends (dare I say family?) involving everyone in recreational activity such as the football matches, own-a-plant initiatives, throwing surprise celebrations on birthdays, anniversaries and seasonal events. The complimentary evening buffets on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays create much needed opportunities to socially interact with the Staybridge community which is so helpful to new people. I am a regular user of the gym which is always kept in perfect working condition. Everyone is willing to go the extra mile to satisfy the customer's needs, always with a smile. Situated in Citystars, it is at the doorstep of one of the highest profile shopping malls in Egypt boasting designer & local shops, wide variety of local and international eateries and one of the nicest cinemas in the city. It is also about 20 minutes away from the airport making it convenient for regular travellers. In summary, this really is my home away from home and I thank Islam and all his colleagues for making it so.

Room Tip: The Staybridge team will allow you to check out more than one room/apartment (subject to availabilit...

I've been here for more than 2 years and I just love the place. Very professional, nice and helpful staff, great rooms, good amenities, I really feel at home with the benefits of a hotel. In addition, there are other long-term stayers and it really feels like the 'StayBridge family'. Yesterday we organized with the staff a birthday party for 3 of the guests, it was a lot of fun. A special thanks to Eslam, Mira and Ahmed for the good management, to Sameh, Mahmoud, Marian for being always pleasant at reception, to Nagwa who always makes sure everyone is happy at breakfast and dinner, Wael (security) who sends you off to work smiling thanks to his nice poems, Mohamed, the best room attendant who has just been upgraded to supervisor (I was happy for him but so sad to loose him!), and of course everyone else who's names I don't know and who contributed to making my stay unforgettable.

Stayed for three nights at the end of a tour of Jordan and Egypt.

I was upgraded to an Executive One bedroom suite and all I can say is wow. Nice layout, fully fitted kitchen, balcony if you can ignore the noise from the streets below and powerful shower.

Another bonus is the basement laundry, the fitness room and the close proximity to citystars shopping mall - literally twenty meters across the basement parking lot. There is a Hypermarket Spinneys in the Citystars mall, where you can stock up on groceries, there is also a pantry at the hotel reception - they sell wine and beers, for those who wish to indulge.

There is also a fabulous shop in the mall called Mobaco - they have some very nice cotton trousers, shirts and sweaters for very reasonable prices.

The staff at reception were very efficient and friendly.

Note I came from Giza in afternoon rush hour and it took me close to two hours to get to the Hotel and I am still amazed I am alive - Egyptian taxi drivers have a unique way of driving - not for the fainthearted - it was a EGY Pound 40 ride. I took the hotel limousine to the airport for EGY Pound 60 but the driver will in all likelihood charm a hefty tip out of you.

Would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.

We would like to thank you for staying with us at the Staybridge Suites and for your time to provide us with your valuable comments. It is truly a pleasure to serve you and we’re glad that you had a good experience and were satisfied with the accommodation, service, and staff.

Being a Platinum Priority Club Member, we are more than happy to always offer you an upgrade from 1 bedroom standard suite to 1 bedroom executive as part of our recognition in case we have this type of suites available.

The layout of our Hotel is designed to make our guests feel cozy and comfortable like home. That’s why it's all provided with comfortable furniture, fully equipped kitchens, and self-laundry.

We’re also keen to have an internal entrance from the Hotel to Citystars Mall for the safety and security of our guests and to save their time as well.

Once again thank you and we look very much forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

The Staybridge suites are awesome! The price is half of that of the intercontinental hotel, the breakfast is included so is free coffee in the lounge 24hrs! U get a full kitchen in the suite and instant access to the mall and the intercontinental amenities and pool just by using the inside connections :-) laundry machines r also free to use which I very convenient!

Service was great the wifi was fantastic.

Best part about this hotel however is really the safety. As a Canadian Egyptian and a woman going to Cairo alone I felt safe and secure all the time no exceptions. Whatever was going on on the street I never felt a thing :-) great place and its where ill stay in Cairo from now on!

Their slogan " Feel at home" and they do their best to make you feel it ..You live in a building with 24 hours security and easy access to your free parking.. From the parking area you step directly into one of the best malls in Cairo.. The suites are very well furnished and equipped with an elegant kitchen.. Everything like new .. At the reception everyone is helpful especially "Amir and Mohamed".. In the morning you enjoy a nice breakfast with a smile from "Rehab"..
