We did a tour with Trafalgar tours and this hotel was our last stay before we left to go back home. It is a huge hotel right in the heart of Cairo. The view from the hotel was of highways, highways and more highways. If you have ever been to Egypt you will notice that there are so many cars everywhere. From a north American standard, it is crazy. You cannot open your balcony door without hearing the roar of the highway. We were really high up as well.
Throughout my travels I have noticed that a lot of the Hiltons that we stay at are really run down and not 5 stars at all. I was under the impression that the Hilton was a luxury hotel. I guess not. I guess I have to keep in mind the cultural difference in each place I visit. The service at this Hilton was not so good. They were not so friendly.
If you are looking for a place right in the heart of the city that is safe, this would be a good choice. There was a lot of security at the hotel. Lots of metal detectors.
The food at the hotel was nothing special either. It was so unmemorable that I cannot even remember what I ate.
The biggest downside for me was that we wanted to go out of the hotel and walk around but we felt like we were stuck where we were. It was impossible to cross the street. There were no cross walks. You just have to jay-walk and hope for the best among the busy car traffic. They should create something for pedestrians to cross the street with. It can be very intimidating.
