I stayed two nights in December with a travel group. The hotel is huge i love that they have two 24 hour banks so you can easily exchange currency. The staff service was excellent. The hotel rooms are fine, spacious, just a little outdated. But they are doing renovations. I would totally recommend.

despite being a frequent regular guest the inconsistent behavior was quite noticable. One rep says one thing and the other rep says something else, especially when it comes to requesting late checkout. my 2 cents, if you're a business traveler like myself and you're looking for comfort and convenience opt for a different option where the staff are nimble and more customer centric. Unfortunately Marriott front desk seemed to have lost that (if they ever had it)

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Zamalek Marriott several times over the past few years--sometimes for several weeks at once. When I landed back late in November for a last minute trip, it was wonderful being greeted so warmly as a familiar face at check-in. After a long day's journey, that is so appreciated! And I was traveling with a colleague who had never visited, and our clerk helped her secure a room with a lovely Nile view. And while I worked off site from early morning to early evening every day I was there, I so appreciated the chance to work out when the excellent fitness center opened at 6am, then enjoy a delicious breakfast, complete with warm cups of my favorite tea, and then, finally, come "home" to crash in my cozy room. Thanks ever so much to the management and staff at the Marriott! Your commitment to excellence and friendliness shines through.

since 18 years I come to the Cairo Marriott Hotel every months and don't regret a single day to have chosen this Palace. It is not only the building, but the staff that serves you. Wheter in the Business Center or in any of the Restaurants.

We stayed at this hotel as part of our river cruise along the Nile. We stayed at the start of the cruise and at the end and did not really have a choice in the room that we stayed in as it was organised by the tour. Firstly it must be said that there are 2 towers to this enormous complex (Zamaleck & Gezira) and we stayed in the Zamaleck tower that had views over the Nile and also over the very busy multi lane roads.Our initial room was overlooking the Nile and this is by far the best option as others from our group had rooms overlooking the roads and it was impossible to open the door to the balcony without being drowned out by road noise. With the view over the Nile we were able to have our door open overnight, a bonus so that we didn't have the air conditioning going all the time as it was a bit noisy. We were on a non-smoking floor but the room still smelt quite a lot of smoke and the curtains and sheer curtain could do with some cleaning to remove the smoke smell. The room was fairly generous with a welcome platter of biscuits and fruit. The bathroom was clean, but the hair dryer had seen better days! Wifi was fast and efficient. Water was supplied. One day they forgot to service our room, but this was rectified immediately. On our 2nd stay in the hotel we were allocated a room on what was meant to be a non smoking floor and given twin beds. With the assistance of the concierge, another room was sourced for us but needed to be cleaned. After having a bite to eat we returned to find the concierge had upgraded up to an Executive room in the Gezira tower with views over the gardens and back of the hotel. This was a large room, with large balcony and had definitely never been a smoking room. The best part of staying in this hotel, once you have learnt to navigate yourself around, is the breakfast! It is an amazing spread of Western, Egyptian and Asian. So much to choose from and the breads and dips are to die for - make sure you get some of the freshly cooked falafels - yummy. There are numerous restaurants to try in the complex and as we were wary of walking the streets we ate only at the hotel. Certainly enjoyed our stay here, but we don't have anything to compare with in Egypt, except a cruise boat (which was very average!). Make sure you take some time to have a look around the palace area which is very beautiful.

Staying at this hotel was GREAT! I had a wonderful stay, from the check-in to the check-out it was five stars all the way!!! From the Decor to the restaurant and the history of the hotel, we were SOLD! Everyone made us feel special! The Bellmen were GREAT! The Hotel has unique antique furnishings throughout fitting for Royalty! We were treated with well, the staff were exceptional. Transportation was good, we had a great time! Breakfast was GREAT also! Enjoy your stay at the HOTEL - it will not disappoint!

My first choice hotel in Cairo .. always nice and clean, on top of that, the service and the staff are the greatest assets of the hotel. The hotel is located in a nice place we you can live the Egyptian history and it is located in Zamalek, you can walk around and enjoy CAIRO

Cairo Marriot is a good property located on the bank of nike ,edive Ismail built the historic Palace Al Gezirah in Cairo, Egypt in 1869 to serve as a guest palace during the Suez Canal inauguration. The palace is undoubtedly an excellent property and worth visiting But rooms are not well equipped and in poor condition which certainly needs renovation to meet today’s need . To my surprise when I asked them for a copy of Cairo map the lady said you can go to the book shop and buy one 😀 I visited their business center and Enquire about a hotel in Alexandria he arrogantly said you should call them directly .

I have stayed at Cairo Marriott in Zamalek three times now. Every trip has been lovely but this one was amazing. The staff are always friendly here and the property is just fantastic. This trip, we ventured into the Billiard Bar. It's located fairly deep in the hotel and is a tad hidden. You walk in and, WOW, an unbelievably beautiful bar in front of the steak restaurant. While the bar itself is a gem, the real gem here is a lovely bartender by the name of Mohamed Radwan. We visited the bar every night mainly because of Mohamed. We told him our tales of the day, showed him our purchases and thoroughly enjoyed his friendship and genuine nature. We told random tourists we met along the way to visit the Billiard bar and say hello to Mohamed. You cannot go wrong with this hotel. Perfect location in the oddly serene Zamalek. the hotel is perfectly maintained and the staff is beyond helpful and friendly. I have no complaints and look forward to my next stay. You could stay at the 4 Seasons or Ritz Carlton but these are typical 5 star properties. This hotel is a vintage gem and offers what I believe to be the best service in Cairo (and yes, I have been to the aforementioned hotels as well). I see a recent negative review and cannot imagine this is the same hotel. The hotel I was in was spotlessly clean, staffed with friendly staff who are incredibly proud to have worked so long in this charming property. Anything we needed was taken care of immediately and with a smile. Again, this was my third incredibly wonderful stay in this hotel in a time span of 4 years. Please visit. Explore Zamalek, walk to the Egyptian Museum (2 American ladies did it just fine with no harassment along the way - just a friendly "good morning" and "welcome to Egypt." To the entire staff and, in particular, to Mohamed Radwan. THANK YOU!!!! We will be back! Quick side note, I have been visiting Cairo for 25 years now. This trip was a cleaner Cairo I have ever seen, a calm Cairo and very easy. Visit Cairo, you won't regret it and the Cairenes are lovely and helpful. The pyramids can be a bit "high pressure" but a sense of a humor, a gentle "no thank you" and you 'll be just fine. Zamalek is fantastic and the Khan al Khalili was easy and hassle free....
