Recent guest reviews
as a European the general allowance of smoking in Egypt and also in the hotel is meanwhile a strange thing. the rooms are very good. the food (breakfast and lunch) was excellent. The pool could be open for longer in the evening.
Dear Friends, While going to Kenya, I thought to take a detour to visit Cairo, specially for Pyramids, so I reached Cairo and stayed in Safir Hotel which is in main downtown. I stayed there for three nights from 24th Apr to 26th Nights and on 27th Apr I stayed till 3 pm because my outbound flight was 7 PM, in spite my check out time was 12 PM and the hotel did not charged any thing extra for that. It is a very nice hotel and food is very good specially there break fast which is very elaborate and good. Staff was very helpful and cautious, in fact I did not have any kind of problems and being in right heart of the city it was very easy for commuting from any where. Rooms are very specious and even the bath rooms are very big and specious having a bath tub and a separate bathing area besides standard amenities. Maintenance of every thing is perfect and I will highly recommend this hotel. Rajeev
I would like to thank the staff of the hotel especially Mohammad hosny, Abeer Fahmy, Kitty, hamees and Mervat. The hotel is clean and safe and near to the center of Cairo. Nice pool, lobby and rooms.. thank you Safir Cairo Hotel
Stayed here for 2 nights. The hospital location in an old, reaching some distention was taking time The lobby is nice and clean Rooms are clean and neat Staff are very nice helpful Food for breakfast was good Free wifi all over the hotel Overall a good stay
Safir Hotel is very clean and has good WiFi connection. They have 3 restaurants, one that serves buffet with plenty of options, Asian restaurant with Sushi and Lebanese case with barbeque. We had free breakfast at the buffet everyday and each day had different options. The food here was so good, we didn't venture off to other restaurants in the neighbourhood. The rooms were clean and smoke free, although you could tell they used to allow smoking in the rooms due to the discoloration on the walls and the smell of the curtains. Otherwise, pretty clean. The bed and pillows were also very comfortable. Every one here is hospitable, it's a shame that terrorism has decreased the number of tourists visiting Egypt. You can tell howe much businesses here suffer. Although the food was very good, there was hardly anyone at the buffet.
Everything with the hotel is perfect, rooms, services, facilities, just missing babysitting. We enjoyed very much, and my 19month daughter enjoyed play ground by the pool, while I was drinking coffee or eating dinner, Stuff is very friendly and helpfull. Hotel is clean, lobby is very nice. Food overall is very good and tasty. Breakfast was various and everybody can find something good to eat. Twice I ordered room service (food) and I was suprised how tasty is food and how reasonable are prices, also for minibar. It is not expensive as you normally expect for minibar. Beds are very comfortable and room is not loud at all. My main opinion is that this hotel offers so much (more than you expect) for very good price. We just didn't like very much location, next time I will most probably choose hotel on Zamalek without pool, because area is much more convenient for me and cleaner.
Lots to say about this hotel; in the midst of a rather difficult time for Cairo, this hotel continues to serve their customers with a big smile! The staff could not do enough to please us. Housekeeping in particular were excellent. Yehia and all the front desk courteous, professional and at times cheeky - with a good sense of humour. Security at the front as you arrive at the hotel is also tight but as pleasant an experience as can be. The pool was very pleasant to relax near with all sunbeds and towels provided. the service at the Blue Sky Cafe also fabulous. Breakfast was always delicious with every member of staff working hard there. Egypt is safe with all their checkpoints and this hotel is a breath of fresh air.
I stayed with my wife at Safir Hotel. The room and toilet were very spacious but the furniture looked dated and, in fact, unclean. The hotel location is very good but it will do well to refurbish the rooms. The restaurants also need improvement.
Really enjoyed my visit, friendly staff, cleans rooms, great breakfast and free use of the sauna/pool. Although not very close to the centre, the nearby metro station makes it very easy to get around. The surround area felt very safe and there are some supermarkets/bakeries in the area
I stayed at this Hotel twice, once in Nov'2106 (7 nights) and recently in Mar'2017 (24 nights). Hotel is quite close to a standard 5-star property. And a good choice around Giza especially if one considers the relatively low cost. Pros: 1.Very good value for money without being cheap. 2.Quite impressive breakfast spread. 3. Very friendly & helpful staffs (from Restaurant, Bellboys, Housekeeping & Room service). 4. Housekeeping & Room service go extra mile to make your stay comfortable (a little tip helps more exclusivity to you also). 5. Most rooms are quite spacious, especially the ones with king beds. 6. Cost of food, etc are very reasonable considering the high quality. Cons: 1. No alcohols in the hotel, so if Bar is a must have for you then look aside. 2. While the mat quality in rooms are good, they seem quite old & dirty. At least they are not smelly. But this is my common crib at most hotels. 3. Speed of Internet, even the highest paid plan is erratic & pathetic. But internet seems to be a common issue almost all Cairo hotels. (yes, they have free wifi also but I gave up on that within an hour of my first stay) Special mention: I fell sick at the middle of my stay (for more than a week). Thanks to the Room service & Housekeeping staffs for all their help which helped in recovery. Included daily changing of linens, daily sanitizing the baths, plenty of bottled water, customized food & beverages and what not.
