just returned from a fantastic week in Cairo at the Marriott on Zamalek. Excellent rooms, service, food and best of all the pool and gardens. Did all the usual tourist stuff and thoroughly enjoyed the warmth and hospitality at the hotel .

loved the cab drivers who discueed politics, football and their crazy driving habits ( eg why do you turn off your headlights at night? answer; becouse we don't need them!

Good food at Abu El Cid, and wonderful entertainment on the Nile maxim cruise.

Ran into a real Egyptian wedding at the hotel...amazing spectacle

Would return to cairo and the marriott in a flash

The hotel is a former palace and is really beautiful. The rooms are excellent. The restaurants are great. The breakfast buffet at Omar and the dinner at the garden restaurant was just marvellous. The only downside is the size. It takes forever to move from the rooms at the extreme end to the main building. The staff are a bit snotty to people of colour. If that bothers you, look elsewhere! I requested a non-smoking room with a king size bed and ended up with a twin bed room! I hate it when I get twin beds all on my own. The Middle East guests just smoke without so much as please may 1! The hotel needs to protect non-smokers better than that!
All the same it is value for money and I recommend it to all.

A suberp top of the class hotel. We've booked 2 rooms from Athens through a travel agent.
We've stayed 4 nights. We've got 2 renovated rooms with excellent room & cleaning service. The 2 first nights we were booked by mistake of the travel agent in a fround floor garden appartment. We express our desire for a Nile view room and the managment of the Hotel gave us (with no extra cost) 2 rooms at 12th floor overlooking the Nile. They did that for free even though that was not their mistake.
A place to stay in Cairo!!!

P.S. Don't forget to book for a mini-cruise dinner in the Nile Maxim. Price for 2 hours in the Nile with dinner, drinks, salads, fruits and dance comes only around 35-40 Euros p.p. (!)

Love this hotel, especially as we were upgraded to a suite on arrival. The suite was fantastic although I believe that the rooms are very very nice also. Very, very comfortable and great restaurants to choose from within the hotel. We ate in the Italian and it was superb.

My wife and I stayed here for five nights during a brief city vacation. We arrived very late at night (early morning) were welcomed by the desk staff and upon asking for (after reading other reviews) were given an upgrade to a room in the renovated zamelak tower with balcony and nile view. The other tower block (Gezera?)is undergoing renovation and during the day work is underway and is noisey so I would definately suggest until the work is completed to avoid it. We had booked through the internet and I expect had been allocated the 'old block' however we were moved despite being told to begin with that the hotel was full. We did not experrience any outside noise from the road as we were on the 20th floor and the windows were effectively double glazed.
The room was spacious and clean, beds and pillows were comfortable and everything in the room worked. Despite some of the comments within previous reviews our room and its contents were 5 star quality.
The hotel itself is outstanding with public rooms formed from the old palace. There are many resturants and bars within the grounds for those unprepared to venture out into Cairo itself. The swimming pool and surrounding area is excellent and a welcome relief after a busy/hot/dusty sight seeing day.
There are a number of local resturants within walking distance of the hotel (Abu el sid, L'Aubergine, La Bodega, Maison Thomas) in Zamelak best accessed from the hotel exit near to Harrys Pub. We enjoyed local food and wine at a more reasonable cost than at the hotel with no ill effects. The River Boats are also located across the road.
Prices within the hotel are expensive for Egypt but less expensive that in 5 star hotels within the UK.
Our room rate included breakfast. The breakfast choice was vast and of good quality and if included within the room rate excellenat value.
Due to our late flight back to the UK the hotel allowed us a late 5:00pm check out which we felt was a good gesture.
We organised our own tour guide via the internet before we left the UK ( a recommendation from within this site Ranny Mostapha [--]) , were met by his representive at the airport,taken to our hotel hassel free and then taken on our two day tours. He has excellent English, provided a clean and comfortable aircon mini bus and took us to everything we wanted to see adapting our tours as we discovered new sights. I would recommend if staying for a short period to organise tours/guides before you arrive as Cairo can be a little intimidating.
We were pleased with the hotel, its facilties and its location close to the centre with the abilty to leave it and walk within an area of Cairo (Zamelak) with restaurants and some western style coffee shops.
