Reviewed October 19, 2012

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.

Room Tip: Get a room near the elevators, specify for non-smoking if you don't like the smell. A higher roo...

I came here to do an event (I use to be an event manager). I chose to have a product launching party at the Conrad out of all the hotels in Egypt. They were offering us great rates for the guest rooms, catering and event hall.

The hotel is huge and very well maintained. The guest rooms were spacious and very clean, the bathrooms were sparkling!

Event hall is spacious and also well maintained. I had some extra high tables and chairs rented from a store. The hotel had no problem with us using the hall as a small stage for the show. The staff was unbelievably helpful throughout the procedure.

I would recommend this hotel to any traveler who is going to Cairo!

We used the pick up service from the airport which was great. It was really efficient and soon enough we were back at the hotel. We had been upgraded to an Executive Suite from a Nile suite which was lovely. We had an amazing view of the Nile and our room was huge.

The breakfast was plentiful and service was good.

The Executive lounge was nice. It had a balcony you could sit on with a great view over the city. Good food and drinks in here too although happy hour was strictly 2 hours in the evening so alcohol wasn't available after that in the lounge.

The Concierge guy recommended a nice restaurant at the top of the Cairo tower. Although the taxi driver tried to rip us off (wich most taxis in Cairo do) we had a lovely evening.

For a short break in Cairo, I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel. I stayed there at the end of August and on arrival found I had made a mistake with my booking. The reception staff and duty manager could not have been more helpful and resolved the issue promptly.
My room was spacious and immaculately clean. The bathroom was very large and well equipped. The bed was huge and incredibly comfortable.
The breakfast was excellent and the meals I ate in the hotel were of a very high standard and very well priced. I was able to use the internet in the business centre for 20 min each day free of charge, which is great for accessing emails etc.
The location of the hotel is very central and taxis are cheap or the hotel can provide a limousine service which is quite reasonable. The location was fairly quiet for Cairo and I was never disturbed in the night by noise.
You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Get a Nile view room, it is worth the extra cost.

Great property and solid service from reservation to passing through immigration at departure! Used the Meet and Assist service and Wael, the gentlemen who helped me, was fantastic. Got me through and into the limo in minutes! Needed a car hire service and the hotel's service was excellent and affordable. My driver, Sherif, did a wonderful job getting me through the afternoon Cairo traffic. Used the shisha bar and the shisha was great, although the Wi-Fi signal could be stronger in the smoking area. Room service dinner was outstanding as well! I want to also recognize Alla from Guest Services and Mahmoud from the Concierge for their outstanding service. I will be back without question!

I've stayed at the Conrad a number of times only ever for work. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, the breakfast is ok, nothing special, nothing awul. As with most Egyptian hotels, alcohol is extremely expensive, butis served. The Hotel itself has nice views from the front rooms over the nile, the rear views are somewhat questionable, and on the higher floors this just wasn't for me.

There is a disco in the basement which does get quite noisy, but on the middle floors you can't hear anything.

Cairo itself is horrendous for traffic, so being quite central in this hotel does have its benefits, but as this was for business only I cannot comment on the suitability for sight seeing etc.

Room Tip: Middle floors with nile view.

This review was for Sept 2010
I was here as part of an organized tour group trip. Check-in was seamless, rooms were very comfortable, location was very central, and the views of the city and the Nile river was spectacular. The staff was very friendly and the concierge was very helpful in advising us of appropriate taxi rates (so we wouldn't get ripped off) and good local restaurants.
