Ramses Hilton
Ranked #14 of 139 Hotels in Cairo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 29, 2012

The Ramses Hilton in Cairo just around the corner from Tahrir Square is in itself, a smart, comfortable hotel. Ideally situated if you need to be near the centre of town. Staff are excellent, but this has been my experience throughout Egypt in all the hotels and restaurants no matter size or class.

However, the pool is too small and situated on the road side of the hotel thus making it a very noisy pool experience not to mention windy, which would be fine on a sizzling day were it not for the dust and grime that hits you from the passing traffic, its as though you’re being sandblasted!

Also, internet is very pricey but worst of all, is the noise from the pleasure boats that are moored on the river just in front of the hotel. Around 4pm music is blasted from some mega music system and continues to pound through the night into the small hours, sometimes until 4am.

This, despite the double glazing, makes sleeping at night something of a hardship and a cross between living in some kind of Moulin Rouge nightmare and the CIA’s attempt of perforating General Noriegar’s eardrums with Iron maiden 24hrs a day.

Room Tip: dont go for a Nile view as you wont get much sleep unless you've got ear plugs from the noise of...

Ramses Hilton is one of the best hotel I have seen. We stayed for 10 days in one of the executives suite and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Breakfast at "the windows on the world" is great. You can see the Nile, the Cairo museum and tahrir square. The restaurants serves a diverse selection of local and western foods. Griled pigeon, Fatah with lamb are are one of the best.
But the best touch of the hotel- friendly hotel staff. Every time we come back to the hotel, they always greet us like we are home.

We could not have been made more welcome. Everyone went out of their way to help us and ensure we had a wonderful stay.
The food and accommodation were out of this world and the security in a time of unrest in Egypt was fantastic.

I have been there in August 2010.. the hotel doesn't looks vry dusty from outside and looks like a bad location in the first place. but its just the opposite when u reach inside the hotel. The rooms are gr8, the staff is very caring. On our request they arranged the Nile river view room. I had fever and bad cold when i landed in Cairo. The hotel people arranged a doctor on call and gave some strangely named medicine which worked wonders and I could njy the trip. Another "BEST" part of the hotel is the Hilton Mall opposite the hotel. It has souvenir shops and a movie theatre and good places to eat..

Room Tip: Ask for the Nile river facing corner room. It gives you a good view of the Cairo tower at night and...
