We had visited the Ramses Hilton at the beginning of our 2 week tour of Egypt - to watch the Chelsea V Man Utd football match in the Sherlock Holmes Pub.
When we were delayed in Cairo for 5 days (I can think of a lot worse places!) there was only one place to stay - The Ramses. The staff looked after us extemely well and were very helpful. When I asked for the address of the airline office not only did they print off the details but also wrote in Arabic so that we could ask someone if we could not find it! They also showed us on the map the best way to get there.
The rooms are very spacious - we had a Nile View Room on the 12th floor and spent quite a bit of time just watching the chaos which is Cairo traffic! The public areas are very comfortable - if I have one minor gripe it would be the rather fierce air-con!
Food prices are reasonable and the food was excellent. I can especially recommend the Sirloin Steak in the Citadel Restaurant - cooked to perfection and the best I have tasted in years and not much more that you would pay in a good pub back home.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely - I wouldn't stay anywhere else in CairoMore
