I stayed at the hotel for two four-day stays through our tour company Overseas Adventure Travel. Nice rooms with balconies overseeing the Nile. Housekeeping takes good care of rooms. Showers are narrow and low. The hotel has a wonderful panoramic view of the Nile. They provide an excellent breakfast with a wide variety of offerings. I couldn’t get enough of the hummus, labne, warm fresh baked pita and fresh fruit. The local watermelon, oranges and guava are tasty. The almond croissant stands out. You have to try it! There is an omelette station. Good coffee and a variety of juices including hibiscus, strawberry and orange. Had the dinner buffet which was excellent, with some incredible tarts. Service at the hotel was accommodating. Staff that I met in the elevator asked if I was enjoying my stay and then drilled down to specifics. A few times in the elevator someone would violate the hotel’s policy on no smoking in elevators. At one point a security person asked the smoker to put out the cigarette. I wish the hotel was nonsmoking throughout. Not too many smokers, but some of them. Few of the guests wear masks if that is a concern for you. Only minor fillip was when I asked for the hotel concierge for a recommendation for a cab to the airport (I booked my flight privately). The company the hotel recommended charges 2-3 times what I paid to a local well regarded and well reviewed cab service. I understand that five star hotels work with more expensive services. With the stunning panoramic view of the Nile we were above where the hotel has weddings and heard loud party boats into the night. I had no trouble sleeping through that. Some tour members had difficulty sleeping through the noise. The hotel was situated right by a bridge that was sweet to walk across as it attracts many young couples. It was a nice respite during the times I walked across the bridge. The shops in the hotel were excellent, especially the cotton clothing store. The gym is open 24 hours and has a good variety of machines and equipment. The pool is fun. Would’ve been nice to have a lane for lap swimming. Pool staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful. The pool was a great place to meet people from throughout the Middle East. We met people from Saudi Arabia , Dubai, Kuwait and other parts of Egypt. Very easy conversations with people in a great setting.

we arrived at the hotel on may 13, 2022. we had two rooms reserved for five people. both rooms had two beds. Then, we asked at reception for a thirth bed for one of the rooms because we had paid for 5 beds. After 40 minutes waiting, they tried to enter to the room a box spring and a mattress that seemed to be taken from the garbage, full of stains and very deteriorated. we refused to have it brought into the room and requested a new or sanitary mattress. After more than an hour they told us that they would bring us another mattress but when they brought it we saw that it was the same mattress but covered by a sheet and It happened the same with the box spring. We refused again and that night we shared a bed with two people. The next day we tried to put a written claim but the receptionist suggested the change of the bed and he assured to us that this time there would be a different one and in a good use. ensuring that the mattress change would be that same night. After 2 hours waiting and around 12:30 at night, we decided to go to sleep as we had no answer and no one came to the room. We have been the three nights that we stayed in the hotel sharing a bed with two people

Staying here for several months on business. The staff are friendly and helpful. I've reviewed restaurants separately and have to mention the housekeepers who have been really good. Shabana always asks if I have everything I need and has gone out of his way to make things comfortable, as have others. The hotel has long-stay suites that are more like serviced apartments -- very comfortable and convenient for someone here for weeks or months. Location is good -- steps to Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum, easy walk across the bridge to Dooki and Zamalek. Also easy to catch Uber or a cab from outside the rear entrance of the hotel to go whichever direction you need. Only downside: noise. If you are on the Nile side, and a light sleeper, bring earplugs. The pool is closed from time to time for wedding receptions, which can get really loud. Also, Nile party boats cruise up and down with music blasting at all hours. But the view is great, the rooms are nice and it's a very comfortable place.

Yesterday, I had the worst experience ever in their restaurant, it was my birthday, the waiter and the managers were the rudest i’ve ever seen, they force you to order things that you don’t want and if you don’t, they start accusing you of not knowing what restaurants are! There was this girl that noway i would call her a manager, when i told her that no one told me on the phone that i must order food she told me you’re in restaurant in a hotel and by common sense you must order food, and i’m not obliged to tell you this, you should already know this because you’re in a fancy restaurant! Okay let me tell you something, this place is awful and i’d never recommend it to anyone. I went to a lot of places, never seen such rude people. Very very bad experience.

Our whole stay in Semiramis was fantastic and there are a few special mentions. Check in process was very nice and due to the busy reception hall, the lovely Ereni gerguis treated us so well, taking us up to floor 18 for a special check in process. She sat us down in the lounge, providing us soft and hit drinks along with a selection of sweets and Canepes. She answered all our questions and we will temper her smile fondly. In addition, Hanna was the excellent waiter at the night and day restaurant. He's a fantastic and cheerful person, who provided his service with a smile. He was always on hand to provide tea and coffee and proved engaging conversation with helpful suggestions on sites to see around Cairo. Taha Ali was responsible for the housekeeping for our 2 rooms, including the suite. He did an admirable job and kept everything clean and looking pristine as well as helping set up the sofa bed in the adjoining room. I look forwards to coming back again. The staff in the hotel including the special mentions above made the stay memorable.
