Egyptian elegance on centrally located Zamalek Island in downtown Cairo
Since the early 1990s, the Golden Tulip Flamenco Hotel has been setting high standards in hospitality on Zamalek Island in Cairo. A green oasis in the heart of the city, Zamalek is an upper class neighborhood known for its excellent restaurants and world-class shopping. The Golden Tulip Flamenco is close to many of the most popular attractions in Cairo, including the great pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. Sample the Spanish menu at Restaurant Florencia while listening to live classical music, or stop into the 24-hour Flamenco Coffee Shop for a snack.
Highlights
  • Home to the popular Carmen Pub Bar
  • On-site Postres Delicatessen, a European bakery
  • Elegantly decorated meeting rooms with high tech equipment
Rooms
Guest rooms and suites at the Golden Tulip Flamenco Hotel are stately and beautifully decorated with classic furnishings and clean, elegant feel. Expect high-quality linens, little luxuries and excellent service. Central air conditioning, a minibar, private bathroom and a television with satellite channels are all standard. Request a River Nile-view room for an added bonus.
Features
Guests at the Golden Tulip Flamenco Hotel find stylish accommodations and a warm, friendly staff in a pleasant, centrally located part of downtown Cairo. Like many locales on Zamalek Island, many of the guest rooms, meeting rooms and restaurants of the hotel offer sweeping views of the River Nile and the city. Restaurant Florencia delights with a superb Spanish menu, and Postres Delicatessen is a European bakery. Guests can browse the shops on Zamalek, visit nearby attractions like the Cairo Opera House and Egyptian Museum, or venture out to the pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, less than 10 miles from the Golden Tulip Flamenco Hotel. Do not miss a trip to the Citadel, one of the most famous sites in Cairo.

Great location, great service

The best location in Cairo (Zamelek, a relatively green and quiet central neighborhood), and great value for money. The hotel could use a sprucing up, but everything was clean and proper, the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful, and the hot buffet breakfast (included with our room rate) abundant, varied and good. There is absolutely no need to pay big-hotel-chain prices for a nice place to stay in Cairo.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Cairo is a very safe city so there is no need to insulate yourself excessively by taking guided tours everywhere. Take local taxis to the attractions you want to see, and bargain to get the best fare -- never more than 10 pounds for a short trip or 20-25 pounds to cross the city. A good guidebook should be all the "guiding" you need. Save your money for nice dinners out and for the souk!

Good Location

This hotel is located in a good location very close to the nile. There is a Spanish restaurant in the 10th floor overlooking the Nile & West Cairo. The breakfast was very good. The hotel staff were very friendly. There is a 24 hours internet cafe right across the hotel. Bank & money exchange is also a few steps away. The only negative thing that I can mention is the morning prayer at 4:10 A.M. from the nearby mosque which I could hear in our room, but this is very common with many hotels in Islamic countries. My guide told me that there were almost 1000 mosque in Cairo with a population of 18,000,000. I guess ear plug is needed. We had the same problem in Istanbul too.

Great Value in Cairo

The Golden Tulip Flamenco Hotel was exactly what we needed after 2 weeks touring down the Nile. First of all I would highly recommend staying in Zamalek area of Cairo and definitely stay at the Flamenco. The rooms were very large and clean with a sitting area. We had a great view of the Nile. It appears that they are renovating the rooms, ours was redone, the bathroom spotless and new, it was a great experience. It was also nice to be able to walk outside and not be bombarded by people to buy something. The area is also nice and quiet with some great coffee shops to hang out in. Great location with some fabulous restaurants and shops nearby where you won't get ripped off, European feel. The staff also were fantatic, we came from the train station, needless to say very early but they did their very best to get us a room asap. The staff was friendly teaching us a bit of Arabic every morning, overall I would highly recommend this place of serenity in a place of chaos, love Cairo, love Flamenco Hotel!!!
