The Ramses Hilton on the edge of Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo is a very good choice. We felt very safe, its clean, brilliant views of the nile river &/or Tahrir Square - you can watch the ridiculous traffic from the safety of your balcony for hours! Its actually very entertaining. Make sure to include the buffet breakfast in your stay. Room service is very reasonable and the serving size very ample. There's banking faclities in the lobby for currency exchange and its so close to the museum. We stay for 7 nights in total (luxor visit in between) in room 1321 & 1713. Dont be surprised if you dont see the pyramids from the hotel in the distance..... you can if the smog clears (not common though). We would say the Ramses Hilton is about a 4 star aust equivalent so dont expect absolute luxury, but its very good regardless and the staff are friendly throughout. I wouldnt stay anywhere else whilst in Cairo and Ive been there a few times over the past 10yrs. Also, Egypt is basically a dry-zone and you'll find it very very hard to buy alcohol unless you go to the hotel bar and pay accordingly. Buy your alcohol at the duty free shop at the airport BEFORE you get picked up. A further tip .... NEVER let anyone help you with your luggage at the airport ...they only want money. They dress in a uniform but dont believe them.

Room Tip: Ask for a room higher than the 15th floor to get the best views - Nile or Tahrir Square - theyre jus...

It is the generic staple of the HIlton chain hotels. The staff is friendly, the room was big and had a very nice view. The room was also clean and the beds were comfortable. You can walk to places but I wouldn't say it is an easy walk but is easier to cab because what they say about crossing the streets in Cairo is true--It is like being the frog in frogger. You are amazed you made it across alive without getting squished. There are really no sidewalks that I could see when we walked around there.

The breakfast has a lot although much of it was just ok in terms of quality. One thing that was great was that the waitstaff was really great with my friend's child, which I thought was really nice.

As stated in other reviews, the hotel is dated. The Nile view is beautiful but noisy. And I do think the walk really isn't a walk. Therefore, while the stay was perfectly fine, I do think that it is overpriced.

Room Tip: View of the NIle

This was our 4th visit to The Ramses Hilton as we love the location, the hotel itself and the shopping centre attached. On arrival I was a little disppointed as we approached theb desk at 9am, early I know but our flight had landed at 8am. I asked the receptionist if there was any chance of an earlier room and apologised that we were there so early. She didnt ask my name and simply said that check in was at 3pm without even checking if there were any rooms available. I think she realised that I was a little unhappy and advised that meybe at 1pm or 2 pm rooms may be ready but this really didnt help the situation. We stored our bags with the concierge and had them book us a car to the Pyramids which was great as always. Upon returning to the hotel around 3pm, a little weary as we had been up since 4 am to get our flight from Luxor we were told that still our room wasnt ready - no problem we said we would go over to the shopping centre and get some food before a well deserved afternoon nap in our rooms. After an hour we returned and our room was still not ready, this time however the team on reception were friendly, apologetic and one girl in particular with bright red lipstick and black shoulder length hair was amazing and gave us her full attention until our room keys were handed to us. The rest of the stay at the Ramses was perfect as it always is and we soon got over our arrival mishaps. We love this hotel and will continue to return year in year out. A special mention to Nancy in Guest Relations who assisted us during our stay and a thank you to the Duty Manager that called us to apologise for the wait for the room.

Room Tip: Everyone seems to want a Nile View which is great but dont be afraid to get a City View which spans...

Wherever i travel there's always something comforting about using the premuim Hilton hotels. This one is no different and a great escape from the wonderful muddle and choas of Cairo! A seveties (sixties?) skyscraper it stands out on the banks of the Nile like a beacon welcoming the traveller to its door.
