Lovely hotel that makes u feel like royalty. Friendly staff. Rooms are lovely and not noisy however, the bathroom could do with a make over. Walking distance to the Egyptian museum. Would recommend this hotel to people visiting Cairo.

The Hotel is close to downtown Cairo with short drive to Egyptian Museum. Some rooms have views of the Nile River. This hotel used to be a palace and then converted to a hotel. It has an Excellent location with walking distance to many places in the city. My room was specious with a nice river view, great ambience, the terrace is lovely, comfortable beds and various amnesties, delicious hot breakfast buffet and free wifi.

My visit to the marriott was an excellent experience everything was perfect if i want to put a grade over 10 it will be 10+ and for sure what made my stay me and my dad unforgettable was Mr MAHROUS SAMARAT and the housekeeping service was remarkable.keep the good stuff you have because they are the reason behind your success.

Amazing stay love this hotel and the staff is great want to thank Mohammed at the Executive level always knew what we wanted and gave us great service and to Raghola Ayman for making us feel welcome everytime she saw me she had a big smile thanks to everyone for a wonderful stay we loved Egypt

I stayed at this hotel 3 nights as a part of a tour.The original palace has two tall buildings beside to accommodate the hundreds of guests.We had buffet style food but there are several other restaurants catering for all tastes.On the first level are gift shops two banks,a bakery and also hairdresser and sweet shops. Outside is a pool and large seating area with a bar.The hotel is close to the Nile and other attractions. Cairo is a city that never sleeps so there is constant traffic around the hotel. All rooms have teamaking facilities and toiletries.I could use my 3 pin plug too.

If you come to Egypt and want to know you’re in Egypt, this is an excellent choice. The former palace has so much charm and detailed decor - inlaid wood, tile work and gorgeous finishings. The staff is so friendly - the folks who work the breakfast in the Executive Lounge go above and beyond. The grounds are lovely and the rooms with a view of the Nile are perfect. I ate at 3 of the restaurants - all were lovely and relaxing - with a wide variety of choices (mostly western dishes as I kept my adventuring to the streets downtown during the day). I will definitely come back to this hotel if my travels take me back to Cairo. Can’t say enough.

We were assigned a room in the R-wing, so our balcony faced the garden in the courtyard but the front door faced the street side... this meant it was very noisy, between traffic on the street and traffic in the corridor. The beds have very firm mattress. The pillows are also fairly firm. This was not the most comfortable sleep I’ve ever had. The rooms do get pretty dark though once the curtains are closed. Our room had a shower-tub combination. There is also a bidet. Breakfast was excellent. It’s buffet style with a large variety of foods. WiFi is free and has a good connection speed. The location is pretty good in the Zamalek area, right on the Nile. Having never stayed in any other Cairo hotel before, I can’t offer a good comparison, but it seemed alright for our 4-night stay.

Lovely hotel, quiet, good air conditioning, nice big rooms, nice breakfast and lovely pool. Good access to the Museum. If you look at it on the map and think - OK - I can walk there- think again. Cairo does have pavements but they are not designed to be walked on! Trees growing out, kiosks on them, motor bikes parked, uneven, dangerous broken sewer covers! Driving anywhere is a nightmare. Takes forever. The air pollution is horrendous. Worse than Delhi. Loved meeting lots of local people. Charming helpful friendly people and I felt perfectly safe everywhere.

I love this hotel since i was a little kid i used to have breakfast with my uncle in omar el khayyam garden and sometimes take couple of days and enjoy the sun and swimming pool This time i was there for conference and they are all great, thank you for great memories and thanks for the staff for being so kind and helpful Special thanks to Mr. hatem and Mr. wagdy

If I returned to Cairo, I would probably stay here. There’s plenty to do the restaurants and shops. Service is good. It’s a converted palace. Nice place to stay. Harrys pub, Roy’s American eatery, the pool restaurant.
