  • 8.0.Very good

    Nice staff.

    Steigenberger Hotel Cairo 19-22 October 18 Reception was fast and professional, thanks to Mazuo, and the concierge service is great. The room was clean, and while not large it was adequate. A good three star level room. Sadly higher floor level rooms tend to be smoking floors. I had a queen bed and a good size TV, with several English news and entertainment channels. The room is well appointed, and the bathroom had a shower cubicle but no bath and worked well. Again, not a large bathroom but adequate. House keeping was good. The Wifi works well and while slow at times, it was good. The location is one of the hotel‘s best features as it’s next to the popular Medan El Tahrir Square and the many nearby shops and restaurants. Views are limited and no where as good as the more upmarket and nearby Intercontinental and Nike Ritz-Carlton hotels. Security in the hotel grounds is good and almost airport like. The staff are good and try to please when possible. Taxis are easy to get and other public transport options are also nearby. Overall, a good hotel with three star rooms in a four star hotel that is in a very good location with a four star reception. Thank you and well done to the staff.

    Great location, good hotel, not catered to tourist

    Hotel location is great and close to main attractions and other top hotels. Therefore, it was sad to see that the hotel itself makes no attempt at connecting to the large number of tourist attractions in and around Cairo. No concierge or other service to support tourists. Clearly a business-only stay hotel, also given the overpriced transportation offers, especially considering local taxis and Uber work great.
