The hotel is very well situated in the downtown not far from Tahrir square;
it is renovated and very well furnished and equipped, the rooms are spacy and clean
the breakfast is excellent and very rich, the restaurants are all good, sabaya an excellent lebanese restaurant, pan y vino a good italian restaurant with a terrasse for shisha and bear
the french restaurant in the third floor is fine, the coffees in the lobby are good and the shops are nice especially "new man"
the service is excellent and the staff is very friendly
the problem is that there is no wifi in the rooms,

Room Tip: ask for the sea view (nile view)

Lovely view of the Nile. Always friendly encounters with staff throughout the hotel. Felt very secure here. Was within walking distance to many great restaurants and attractions. Looking forward to staying again soon.

Room Tip: Nile views are of course best, but really any room would have a great view.

The hotel has improved drastically since my last visit and last review.
Reception, welcoming and checkin process was extremely smooth.
I was upgraded to a junior suit which was really good.
The bellman escorting me to my room was extremely polite and well informed about the hotel and it's facilities.
The room was clean, bathroom was clean.
Only the shower head was leaking water from everywhere but I didn't bother to call anyone cause I fixed it my self.
Breakfast was amazing, great selection and great fresh juice bar
Waiters and chefs were friendly and polite..
Check out was extremely smooth as well.
I would like to highlight only that still smoking is allowed in the hotel's main areas which smells bad!!
Even those who smoke forget and enter non smoking areas like the elevators with cigarets in their hands!! Which spoils the mood of those who hate the smell..
That's all.
People to highlight.
Night shift manager. Mr. Gergess (don't know last name)
And the checkout receptionist I think her name was Marina..
Extremely professional oriented people.
And I'm glad Semiramis intercontinental is back to were it used to be.

The Intercontinental Semiramis offers an excellent downtown location with a fantastic Nile view. Service is flawless and the room is spacious and comfortable. Limo service is plentiful and fairly affordable.

The restaurants available offer a wide variety of cuisines and the attached shopping center is varied and interesting. Flat-screen TV offers a wide variety of services from CNN to the BBC as well as many local Arabic satellite stations for those who want to get a local flavor.

The bed is extremely comfortable and the in-room mini bar is well stocked. Internet is wired Ethernet. Wi-Fi is only available in the lobby. This was not an issue for me since I travel with my laptop. Those with tablets may have an issue with the lack of in-room Wi-Fi.

During my two week stay I felt pampered with the staff offering constant help and soliciting feedback on the service and ways to improve it. The Semiramis is not a super luxury hotel but in my mind it is a superb experience and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Go for the "Nile View" rooms. They cost a few Dollars more per night but the view is spect...
