Triumph Hotel
Ranked #90 of 138 Hotels in Cairo
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I ended up at the Triumph Hotel with complements of Egypt Air. But did I regret it!

This Hotel has some grandiose glamour from earlier days - quite something to see with pretty impressive initial appearance and public areas inside. Check-in was quick.

The rooms are however a different story, these are small, very old-style, mine with two (too) soft twin beds, very old TV (although with some variety of channels, including CNN) and old furniture. The fixed cable internet was very slow (the cable point is situated on the bed's side table and not the study table!). WiFi not working. Bathroom was also old but nevertheless functional. The room was basically clean, but too warm on arrival as the aircon works with your access card.

The restaurant is way below average and has a set meal for the evening, the food pre-served so you get whatever quantities the chef thinks good! The basic salad, minute steak and grilled chicken breast served with rice and veggies were all very average. Had to pay for water. That's it. No dessert.

Great gym – large and well equipped (really looked inviting). Pity I didn't have gym clothes with me!

Note that the Hotel is ridiculously far from the airport (about 30 mins drive!) and I wasted a huge amount of time (about 3 hours) organising the hotel, getting there and back with the Shuttle (you know Cairo's traffic….!?). If Egypt Air offers you this Triumph Hotel for only a few hours transfer, don't bother to accept it as it is way too far from the airport, especially traffic considering. Then the Hotel's quality is also below standard. It really looks to me that the Hotel tendered cheap for Egypt Air, but it will do Egypt Air well to rather use a better hotel closer to the airport!

Room Tip: Don't bother to sleep here!

Was not happy with the hotel at all, from the outside the hotel looks ok. However the staff are not friendly or helpful. The bellboy tried to kiss me (not cool) and the rooms are not very clean. Rolled up the carpets on the floor becuase they looked old and never been cleaned.

Hotel not recomended

This is a hotel where Egypt Air brings all the passenegrs with a lot of time between connections

The hotel is far from anywhere, though in a quiet part of town. Rooms average.Restaurants are inside the hotel. One is a good restaurant, one is a quick food restaurant.
No intenret availbale. A ncie lady in the souvenir shop, and very kind.

A distinguished location near to Cairo Airport & also to Roxy, a commercial area . You can easily get to khan EL kalely, downtown. I heard about the housekeeping problems but I find nothing .Apparently they have been taken care of. Mentioning the food , it was delicious& they are renewing the restaurant. All in all I enjoyed my brief visit there.

Room Tip: Very good Room 732
