This was my first time traveling to the middle east and I was very taken back by having all my luggage having to be x-rayed or having a metal detector and wand being used on me. Once I got over the initial surprise of this, I was very happy to have arrived. This hotel is located very close to the...

We were fortunate enough to be offered an upgrade to suites, which were great, although the view was a whitewashed wall. The suite was clean, and nicely decorated, with 2 big TVs, a super shower and bathroom. The bed was ace and we had a lovely lounge with dining table etc. The reception area was lovely, clean and smart, the...

Wonderful 4 days with a wonderful room overlooking a pyramid. Real plus is room service prices are the same prices as the bar prices.

Very luxurious lobby with free wifi, lovely clean rooms with everything you could need. This was the first stop for our honeymoon so they gave us the best room in the place with gorgeous views of the pool and pyramids.

I recently spent 4 nights at the Mercure Cairo. The hotel is close to the Sphinx and Giza Pyramids and far enough away from Tahrir Square for those who prefer to avoid political demonstrations. Keep in mind, though, that Giza is not Cairo and allow travel time to where ever you are going. This hotel is sorely in need of...

We stayed there for two separate days. One while coming from Alexandria and second while coming back from Luxor and moving towards Alexandria.

My experience in this hotel was fairly good. The best thing about it in my opinion is that it's near the world famous Giza pyramids within a walking distance for those who like to walk. The security was too strict for my liking but is understandable in such a country like Egypt to keep away those troublemakers. The only thing...
