Great Overnight Stay

Overall excellent, BUT the hotel drivers -- we took two, one for a 3 hour excursion to Western Cairo, the other to the airport -- did not know where they were going. I know Cairo well since i lived here in the 1970s, so could direct the first. But the second, who took us to the airport, almost got lost -- he seemed to have no idea where the International terminal was or how to get there. Frankly, this is something that needs to be corrected. Thank you,

Very pleasant, reasonable value

My wife and I stayed at the InterContinental for one week while visiting family. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The lifts worked perfectly at all times. Our interactions with the staff were professional and friendly. We did not use the dining room as we ate with family or at restaurants. The area is very safe and convenient. I would stay there again. Although a number of museums are nearby also a big mall attached to the hotel , we didn't do any sightseeing this trip as we concentrated on spending time with family
