What a great time to visit Cairo and a great time to stay at the Intercontinental! Stayed for 3 nights in a club level room and could not have been happier. This is a tough time for tourism in Cairo: visitors are down and everyone is struggling for business. We were well-treated at the Intercontinental, got a great rate, and could not have been happier with the room, service and the club level breakfast and happy hour. The room is decorated in a more European style, not particularly trendy today, but was very comfortable and had a luxe feel. The hotel overlooks Tahrir Square and the Nile (our room had a Nile view.) The concierge was always pleasant and helpful. The breakfast is top notch....lots of variety and very fresh and delicious food. This hotel is in a great location, a short walk to the Egyptian Antiquities Museum...the big must-see. Also close to the garden city area and the Four Seasons. Dined in the Italian Food restaurant and the food was very good, the service excellent. I am a big fan of the Intercontinental chain generally. I find that they tend to be well-located, great service and well-priced. Security is high at this hotel, which I appreciate.
Occupancy does not seem particularly high, given the uncertainty in Egypt now. So go visit!
