I didn't choose to stay at the Le Meridian Heliopolis.... I was displaced from the nearby Fairmont where I had reservations because of the Conference on Islamic Cooperation. Knowing a little about the Le Meridien chain I was looking forward to a relatively nice hotel, but the LM Heliopolis is a 2-star wreck, although I would give the service a 4-star rating. The entire hotel is filthy-dirty. I had to clean the dresser drawers with soap and disinfectant before using them. The chairs and sofas were grimy, obviously not cleaned in years. Whether in the public areas or the sleeping rooms, the furniture is broken or very outdated. The pool was closed, and there are no outdoors grounds for escaping the room. In response to other Trip Advisor reviews, management writes that they will remodel in June (but what year?). But even if the hotel doesn't have the funds for a desperately-needed remodeling, they should at least keep the place clean. It is also very noisy because the windows are not sound-proofed. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the Thai restaurant was excellent. The bed was comfortable but the pillows were old, lumpy and smelly. This hotel is not consistent with the Le Meridien brand, but with high LM rates. My advice: Do not stay here.
