Historical Traveller Reviews of Conrad International Cairo Hotel

Helped make our stay in Cairo great!

from lolabug
I have stayed at a number of hotels in Cairo and I can say that I definitely like the Conrad the best so far.

The rooms are beautifully done with all the amenities you would expect from a five star facility. The room was a good size even with two double beds. The bathroom as big enough for two women to share with ease.

Free bottled water that was replaced twice a day was a nice touch.

The expensive internet access was easily accessible in the rooms.

The breakfast buffet was extensive with all the typical stuff including omlettes made to order.

The location is convient to the Eyptian Museum and other attractions.

Never take the taxis from the hotel. It will be at least twice as expensive as a regular taxi from the street (make you haggle on the price).

The Sangria/ Absolute restaurant and bar across the street is very nice with a beautiful view of the Nile.

Definitely try the restaurant, La Bodega, on Zamalek for some unique dishes in a beautiful atmosphere.

The concierge was helpful but the bellboys were a little slow in bringing our luggage (and even temporarily lost one piece).

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at the Conrad and would highly recommend it.

Nightmare

from WatfordTraveller
Husband is a Platinum Honors cardholder, but says he will never stay in another Conrad again following our 4 nights at this hotel on holiday.

There is a terrible problem with noise at this hotel. We had an Executive floor room, and whenever adjoining rooms used bathroom could be heard. We would have overlooked this except our Egyptian neighbours slept all day and partied from 1.30am. After 3 days of Whitney Houston and the neighbours singing along (especially badly) and complaints every night, moved rooms only to have same problem on another floor. We understand there were repeated calls from other guests about the noise. The hotel seems unprepared to deal with the problem almost blaming complaining guest for expecting to sleep at night. Certainly not the experience expected as husband sadly spends 70+ nights per year in Conrad/Hilton hotels.

Very good Executive Lounge with butler service. Impressed with selection of beverages, food including the best fresh strawberry juice ever tasted. The beds were comfortable but overall these plus points in no way compensated us for a lack of sleep.

Pleasant experience

from Centaur47
Room was excellent on both stays. Counter staff were very polite and helpful. Hotel security box system is not particularly professional, however having forgotten the room safe number the process in obtaining access was very professional and secure. Room service and staff was very good and food and bar service was also very good.

Access to the casino requires a passport for entry.

Tip for travellers: Make sure that you have a stock of Egyptian Five Pound notes for tipping - otherwise it's a US dollar per tip. Egyptian money is often very soiled, and the Five Pound note more so - get some from a bank before you start. Be prepared to tip everyone irregardless of the quality of service - they have the US disease.

Pleasant stay

from Sal123
We stayed at the Conrad for 4 nights last week then 1 more night later in the week. Our first room was a Nile view room on the 7th floor - nice view, clean room, big bathroom completely non-smoking floor, very smooth stay. Leaving at 2.30 in the morning to fly to Abu Simbel was a shock to the system, but the hotel will provide a breakfast box which is handy. Our second stay for 1 night was on 17th floor. The room smelt freshly painted (not excessively so) but I realised that it had not recently been refurbished as the curtains were a bit grubby. This was a pool view room, but you can actually see the Nile pretty well from there too (just a couple of buildings chopping up the view). As we were at the end of the corridor we also had an extra window with a view over Cairo which was very interesting. There was some hammering going on above us in the second room and the guest services sorted this out (although perhaps they might have been able to do this a little quicker or even not have had the hammering at all). Their lunch buffet was nice, the Asian evening buffet was disappointing. Room service was good and prompt, but different chefs seemed to prepare food differently so there was no consistency. Would very happily stay there again.

Best deal in Cairo - Executive Level at the Conrad

from Dreamtc
The Executive Level at the Conrad Cairo is amazing. At least four floors of the hotel are dedicated to grand rooms with amazing balconies. Upon check-in you are whisked away from the lobby and transported to private check-in at the Executive Lounge. My room was grandiose (huge balcony) and utterly beautiful. The bathroom is larger and more luxurious than most hotel rooms themselves, with both glassed-in shower and giant tub (large enough to lie in without touching either end... and I am 6'1"). The Executive Lounge offers multiple food presentations with hot and cold items from breakfast to dinner. Happy hour was unbelievable with unlimited, top shelf beer/wine/liquor. And it is all FREE/included in your room rate. The lounge has an amazing balcony with outdoor seating. Service in the lounge is definitely 5 star. I was in 3 other Cairo hotels, including the other Hiltons... the Conrad is much better kept and definitely of a higher caliber. Good location on the Corniche. I even strolled down the Nile to the Egyptian Museum in a leisurely 20 minutes. If service/value/amenities/room size-quality are important - the Conrad Cairo fits. 5 stars!

Wow what a nice surprise! Sharon-Lake District UK

from Hellings
Conrad Hotel in Cairo far exceeded our expectations.
The reception staff are proffessional and speak good english.
The Hotel was in a great location close to Museum and 15 mins drive to Pyramids.
The Concierge suggested a driver/guide called Hany who had a good grasp of English and showed us around for reasonable rates in an air conditioned car which they refer to as a limousine.
The room was not overly spacious but was very comfortable and well appointed. It had 2 double beds and a beautiful bathroom.
Our balcony overlooked the quiet heated pool area and the Nile.
The 24 hour restaurant served the best food we had tasted in Egypt. Buffet style with loads of options and the food was replaced regularly with hot freshy food.
The Dinner buffet cost £12 for all you could eat. Children were also accommodated. An alternative restaurant was available. No children under 10. There was a fish restaurant that accepted children and the foyer area had a bar and pianist and was also child friendly. The upstairs bar did not allow children but you could walk through to the outside sating with views over nile where there was waiter service. Excellent value for money. Book direct and pay £65.00 per night. We could not contact hotel direct direct for some reason and booked through lastminute.com for £80.00per night. Still good value compared with England.

Lovely Hotel

from Tinadubai
Stayed in the conrad for 4 nights, hotel is very nice, service was excellent. The room was spotless- two very comfortable double beds, internet connection, minibar, balcony with view of the nile. Bathroom was huge separate bath and shower, with bathrobs and slippers. Tried the Italian restaurant in hotel, was nice but not a great selection on the menu. Visited the new Four Seasons Hotel, next time i think i will stay there. but overall the conrad is a very nice hotel.

I loved it!

from Nats_86
Me and my boyfriend stayed here recently for 4 days and i have to say that we were very impressed. We had a room on one of the executive floors, which meant that we had an speedy check-in on the executive floor and a bigger room. The bed was the most comfortable and luxurious I have ever had, and the bathroom was also above standard of even many of the top london ones! We also had access to the executive lounge, where there was free internet, snacks and drinks all day. We ate once in the seafood restaurant, and although it is very pricy for egypt, the food was wonderful. All in all, we had a great and relaxing stay, and it's a perfect base for exploring Giza and the rest of Cairo.

Excellent stay at the Conrad!

from R Ramey
The Conrad is an Oasis of pleasure. Our room was quite large and comfy with a fine view of the Nile. The morning and evening buffet was a delight to both the eyes, taste and pocketbook.
The hotel has a casino in site but it's not worth the effort to get in.
Staff and management was eager to answer questions and assist with tranportation to museums and various sites.
Across the street a falucca and trusty captain can be rented for a memorable afternoon sail on the Nile.
While the Cairo museum is only about a mile and quarter away do not attempt to walk to it. The traffic is chaos and bedlam. Millions of autos, scooters and donkey carts jam the roads. Let the hotel summon a taxi. The pyramids of Giza is about 14 miles from the Conrad but expect the trip to take about 45 minutes or an hour. Again, the traffic!
The Conrad is in the middle of everything in Cairo and I'd recommend the Conrad to everyone visiting Egypt.

Loved the Conrad Cairo

from Aussiehoneymooner
We stayed at the Conrad Cairo in early April. ABSOLUTELY loved it!!! The staff are incredibly nice and helpful. Anything we needed - they bent over backwards for.

The restaurants at the hotel are really lovely especially the Italian one.

Our room was clean, modern and the marble bathroom huge! The bed is one of the most comfortable I have ever had....

Fantastic hotel all round - will not disappoint

Top Local Tips for Cairo

Tipping Protocol Everyone expects a tip - most are not aggressive, but rather grateful. A Five Egyptian pound note is good for minor service - make sure you have plenty. They are hard to come by at banks. Otherwise a US One dollar is OK or multiples thereof. Currencies that are welcomed as long as they are bank notes and not coins include Australian, Euro, British pounds. Coins are useless to them and are usually dumped or not accepted. Don't overtip - North Americans have a reputation as big tippers and have distorted the system - this means Canadians too! Australians and Brits are considered poor tippers - deservedly. Don't tip the children - they are exploited by adults.

Saqqara pyramids are absolutely worth the trip If you can only go to Cairo on your trip, take the time to see the Saqqara pyramids and museum in addition to Giza. See one of the tombs, spend the 50 pounds and get a tour of one of the recently discovered tombs, with indescribably beautiful carvings and paintings on the interior.

From the Airport to Downtown Cairo Our loney planet guide book informed us of the 2LE bus from the airport to downtown Cairo. The big problem for us was our inability to tell which bus went to downtown Cairo. Several very helpful people at the bus station helped us get on the corect bus. It helped to ask for the bus to "Tahrir" (for downtown Cairo). Once we got the bus, the driver gave us too little change and a passenger sitting behind us got the correct change for us from the driver. We reccomend the bus for those willing to depend on the help of others and on a tight budget. But for those who can afford a taxi/car, bargain, bargain, bargain. That said, after several taxi trips in and around Cairo, even that got stressful and taxi drivers didn't always appear to know where you wanted to go or how much it should cost. The driving varied greatly- one driver was far too aggressive and one driver's car couldn't go above 40MPH. The condition of some cars were appalling while others appears to be in good shape.
