We stayed at the Conrad twice during our trip to Egypt. Generally a well located hotel, right on the Nile and if you get the far corner away from the World Trade Center, you get a pretty decent view of the River and the island Zamelek. The check in service was a little slow given that there weren't any other guests checking in but the lobby was comfortable enough to sit in as long as you don't mind the occasional smoker puffing up a storm. The rooms are spacious and if you get an upgraded room, it doesn't look too dated. The fruit plate is a nice touch and of decent quality. The first room we stayed in was an older room on a lower floor (14th Floor) and the interior is a darker furnishing. The shower didn't have a plastic protector placed along the bottom and initially we didn't know so half the bathroom floor was wet after a shower. The bath mat became completely soaked and I had to wring this out in the bath. You have to be careful with this because the marble floors become very slippery and you could fall. The second time we stayed, the shower door did have a protector and I had no problems with a wet and slippery floor. It seems that the hotel hasn't checked the showers to replace these. Another issue I had was that the hotel doesn't offer free internet. You pay for it and you have to hook your computer up with a broadband cable. If you're like me and travelling with a Mac Air, this is incredibly frustrating if you do not have the adaptor, so make sure you bring one (or hotel, please install Wi-Fi in all the rooms for various devices). The hotel provides bathrobes but no bathroom slippers which was a bit strange, but there is a hairdryer, safe and ironing board. The great thing about Cairo weather is how dry it is. It really is possible to wash an item of clothing, hang it on the balcony chair and it will be dry for ironing within a few hours. The bed is comfortable and wide and there is decent cupboard space. If possible, try to get a room near the elevators so that you don't have to walk too far down the corridor. The hotel still permits smoking and this is apparent in all public areas and sometimes in the room. If the weather permits, I advise to open the balcony door to air the room out which works quite well. The fridge is sealed with a sticker so I didn't use it to store anything else just in case they would need to check it for consumed items. The breakfasts are good so definitely eat in the hotel before you head out for the day.
