We and our clients have been staying here for many years. You can wander for hours throughout the grounds, palace and shops on this property. Great food, especially outside under an umbrella. Stayed in March 2012.

I loved the location - a quick walk out of the hotel and you are near one of the best bookshops in Cairo, best restaurants. Hotel itself is brilliant.

This is not the typical Marriott hotel, this s much better, the hotel is build it in Egyptian style with a great atmosphere, the rooms are very comfortable and the staff will treat you like sultan. If you have the option of the executive floor the breakfast there is very nice and the perfect start of your day.

Room Tip: Pick a high floor for excellent views

Spent 3 nights at the Omar Khayyam Marriott and thought it was wonderful. Is situated on Gezira Island and although you are within easy walking distance of the museum and Tahrir Square, the hotel is really peaceful and an oasis of quiet in the midst of Cairo chaos The bedrooms are big and luxurious and well equipped - the tea and coffee in the room is a welcome bonus . We used the pool and leisure club every day and staff there were particularly pleasant and helpful although service throughout the hotel was excellent. I would also recommend trying a shisha in the Egyptian restaurant - looking at the stars whilest puffing gently was a great experience and very relaxing!

Even though I usually like to stay in small family type hotels when travelling so I can experience the local "flavour" I decided to stay at the Cairo Marriott because of my interest in architecture, I wanted to see and experience the decore of the "palace built for Princess Eugenie., Was able to explore the various function rooms which used to be the rooms of the palace and that was a delight.

Stayed there for 3 nights and went back at end of my tour for another 3 nights,.even though it was way out of my price range, I ajusted my budget to fit it in. So I wasn't the typical type of guest the hotel usually has, in that I self catering. .Didn't eat in the restaurants, though did buy some ice cream from the hotel's bakery cafe. Plenty of small restaurants outside the hotel, also a great pizza cafe. Did some food shopping in the small supermarkets and fruit stalls dotted around the streets of the hotel. Also the buffet breakfast had a great selection from which to choose from, to set one up for the day.

Travelling on my own I felt safe and was very well attended to by the staff. After a long day of hot sight seeing, it was nice to come back to the lovely pool and extensive gardens and leave the hussle and bussle of the city behind. The entrance is amazing, just beautiful. Security is tight, with guards and guard dogs inspecting all cars as they enter the grounds.

My room was huge, huge comfortable bed, lots of pillows and had a great view of the river Nile, added bonus was the tea and coffee making facilities, nothing like a nice hot cup of tea first thing and at the end of a long day, without having to use room service. Aso complimentary bottle of water each day. Loved the big sliding doors one could open and sit on the balcony, yes a bit noisy with the honking of the cars, but it is Cairo after all. Bathroom was out of this world, everything in it one could wish for. I could have lived in this room for the rest of my life.

Zamalek is a great part of Cairo to stay in, quieter than some parts and I even walked to the Egyptian Museum. Would stay at this hotel again because even though it is a large hotel, it still felt a little like a home away from home. Maybe I was lucky to have attention of some very helpfull staff who always made me feel very welcome coming and going each day.

A bit of a warning about the cost of the internet, it is so excessive and don't charge it to the room as they put a 12% sales tax on it, even the printing, I was caught big time with this as had to use the business centre on my last day.

But all and all a very positive experience, a delightfull stay and many lovely memories.

Room Tip: The Zamalek Tower has the NIle view

I have been visiting Cairo regularly since 1975. Since the Marriott opened, I have stayed there more than anywhere else. My recent stay in late March, 2012, confirmed that my devotion to this hotel reflects sound judgment. The service, restaurants, pool, fitness room, executive floor lounge, rooms with a river view...all add up to a unique experience. Since the revolution, it is indeed THE place to stay.

Room Tip: choose a room with a river view
