Changed our usual Cairo hotel based on seeing their main building and gardens. These are great and seem to be the main reason the hotel hast 5 stars. Unfortunately the 1970's annexes on either side do not live up to these standards. My room had traces of thick dust on the edges, on the phone and hair drier, the bedsite phone did not work and the additional-charge internet connection was slow and kept cutting off.

The main reason why I like this hotel is that you are able to sit in the extensive gardens in the evening ater a long day (this should not be underrated!!) and sit on your balcony looking down on the Nile. However, if you don't plan on doing these things and rate the hotel purely on room quality, size, cleanliness, etc, Cairo Marriott falls significantly short of other hotels, such as Fairmont or others.

Room Tip: Ask for a high-up room to avoid street noise.

We stayed one night in this hotel in early November. Despite being one of the largest hotels in the Middle East, it certainly lags behind in terms of service. There were only 3 receptionists, which seem to take forever to check-in guests. We were Platinum Rewards members and despite that, we were told to wait since they were busy! I can clearly see that they are taking their time in checking in guests and they should work faster!

The location of the hotel is good, in the island in the middle of Cairo. The rooms, bathroom are showing signs of age--definetly not the best in Cario. We were in a upgraded room which had LCD TV's, but the room looked below average--certainly not the hotel rooms we see in Dubai or Doha.

The breakfast was in the club lounge, which was good; the food is adequate and plentiful to choose from.

The view was amazing from the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get the higher floors as the floor on the lower floors are noisier. Try to upgrade to a bette...

Atmosphere and grandeur are key in this location. Nile view rooms have great link with the famous river and its city. Rooms need refurbishment. Minus is that both at check-in as check-out, time was unacceptable due to bureaucratic procedures (ID-card issue and Expedia tariff differences).

We had our wedding there, it was a masterpiece, the service is perfect and the staff there are really helpful, cooperative and understanding, were always helping us to solve all the unexpected problems we faced that day, moreover the food quality was amazing and all the invitees were really happy with it, a very large variety, but actually we didn't go to the swimming pool it was a small one and we didn't had time for it, just we stayed there for 2 nights and then left the hotel, but indeed it was just amazing experience there

This is a beautiful hotel without a doubt especially the common areas e.g. meeting rooms, etc. The hotel includes a 24 hour bank which comes in handy if you need Egyptian pounds or change for tips etc. It also has several shops that looked interesting if you have time to explore.
The rooms are comparable to other high end Marriott’s. We traveled on Marriott points and had executive level access. The room balcony in the city was also a nice plus. We had a room with a view of the pool as well as a bit of the Nile. We didn’t eat at the hotel but enjoyed the fruit basket and sweets left in the evening.
The pool is as wonderful as it appears in pictures. However, I felt the least comfortable in Egypt at the pool as an “uncovered” woman (maybe Sex in the City 2 was in the back of my mind). That being said, I enjoyed sitting by the pool while my nephew swam and could easily imagine enjoying a leisurely day by the pool. Security was posted outside the elevator on our floor. We were told every exec floor had security. They also had metal detectors at the entry. A few other drawbacks include the lack of signage directing guests to registration. Because this is a very large hotel this is important especially if you arrive exhausted. I didn’t visit the casino but it is a nice to have if that is your thing. The staff was helpful and friendly (not overly so).

I was very lucky to stay for 2 days at Cairo Marriott Hotel in October .i stayed at a DBL room which was huge we had two beds each was a queen size .the room had all the necessaries anyone may need to have the room service was very punctual the food was very tasty .on the 2nd day we ordered breakfast in our room it was an American breakfast which was great the portion was huge.we really enjoyed our stay and I would definitely stay again soon at this hotel .our room was overlooking the Nile and you could see all the scenery from high above as we were on the 16 floor . We were given the Marriott Rewards card as soon as we checked in so we could use it easily in any Marriott Hotels all over the world .great experience .

Room Tip: Choose the rooms on the 16 or 18 floor the scenery is spectacular .

I was pleasantly surprised by the "comeback" made by this wonderful Marriott property. I was attending a wedding with my family, and we spent the night in one of the newly renovated diplomatic suites at the Zamalek tower. I must say the hotel management managed to get this hotel back on its feet in terms of service. All the staff members that I dealt with during my stay were excellent and very efficient. Food was excellent and room service and house keeping were swift. The newly renovated suite was very keenly appointed with an array of ameneties. I believe if this hotel manages to keep up this quality of service it will win back all the clients it lost in the past 10 years or so. Very good job Marriott Zamalek.
