This hotel is in El Dokki district. The closest metro station is Dokki. You can easily get from here to the Egyptian Museum by metro (2 stops only). A ticket is only 3LE (Egyptian Pounds). There are shops, restaurants and banks around. The McDonalds and Pizza Hut are around and plenty of local restaurants includes next to a hotel and inside the hotel. There is a nice pool open from 9 am until sunset. My room was big with bed, desk, TV, coffee/ tea/ kettle, mini bar(no alcohol), sofa, coffee table, balcony. And a bathroom with bathtubs as well. And air condition as well. The best breakfast ever is served on the mezzanine floor. So many choices, hot food, cold meat and cheeses, pastry, yoghurts, jams, fruits and freshly made omelettes made by a chef. I was during the Ramadan so there were so many beautiful decorations and colourful lanterns. I did enjoy stay here. Highly recommended.
It was a short family trip but tbe experience was amazing as hotel was located on most attractions. All staff are helpful and attentive to all our needs. The hotel itself was really good and room service was fantastic.
I recommend this hotel for those who are looking for affordable price & have no issue with location and Amenities. My experience with this hotel wasn’t pleasant. The Amenities was so old beside the location wasn’t really that good. Breakfast was nice
Welcoming and hospitality from the first moment especially reception and sequrity individuals, restaurant and room service also kind people. Rooms are clean in general abd house keeping was very good and helpful
Safir is an excellent hotel. It is quit & clean, it is very near from cairo down town. Staff are very friendly and professional. It has a very clean and good pool, nice pool cafe. Good food menu, clean and quit restaurant, friendly and helpful restaurant staff. Nice music player at night. This hotel are very good for families and students and excellent for business trips.
it was very great & wonderful staying. I lost my bag in the taxi during my way to the airport although the taxi was from outside the hotel and they didn't know the driver ,I informed the hotel about my problem, the hotel management investigated and I surprised they brought my bag and returned back to me again I was very happy. they are really excellent management and very safe hotel. thank you all. this is my home.
I was impressed by the hotel. The decor and room size is very nice. Buffet breakfast was good and the buffet dinner was amazing! My complaint is that we paid for a triple room for 3 adults but were given a normal twin room with a third bed squeezed in. This made the room feel small and we didn't have much space left. Also the housekeeping was inconsistent. When the lady made up our rooms, it was done very nicely to a perfect standard and left us a water bottle each. When the men made up our room they would only leave 2 towels instead of 3, even though we had 3 beds in the room. The gym was decent enough for a quick workout although it can't be compared to the gyms in other 5 star hotels I've stayed at. Swimming pool was nice too but wasn't heated - it was freezing cold in the morning. The wifi was decent enough for whatsapp or casual browsing but not fast enough to stream videos. We used the wifi to call Ubers which was very helpful. Reception staff were good and so was the bar staff. I would return to this hotel if I came back to Cairo. There are just a few points that need to be addressed to truly make this a high quality 5 star hotel.
We spent a lovely week at this hotel. security and all staff were welcoming . we had a room upgrade and were very impressed with the variety of traditional Egyptian and international meals available at all times for room service , at the different restaurants in the hotel and even at the pool. breakfast buffet was vastly immense, mostly traditional options but the live omelette station was a welcome treat. Spanish omelettes daily made infront of you. We were never asked to prove our marital status which I know other hotels in Cairo are sticklers for so check before you travel. The hotel had so many amenities in sure, even its own bureau did change which came in very handy so we travelled without money in UK pounds or euros changed 50 to 100 at the airport just for tipping en route especially our driver then throughout the week we could change little and often to use as we needed get as many five and 10 Egyptian pound notes as you can for tipping. As a general everyone who provide your service requires a tip which includes housekeeping but it’s money well spent as our room was spotless always with a fresh large bottle of water daily. Other amenities at the hotel include a small souvenir shop cafe sushi bar small gym and small spa which is split into men and women and many other things we only discovered unfortunately on the last day would recommend exploring the hotel internally when you arrive. The foyer is stunning! I’d recommend a travel guide for excursions. We used EMO tours Egypt from gettyourguide website and we can’t recommend them more highly! Especially a Ahmed! He was so knowledgeable and picked us up from the hotel and back everyday with snacks and a water included! I would only advise women ( this is through your visit to Cairo not just this hotel) to dress modestly with flowy clothes and arms and legs covered down to elbow and below knees if not fully covered. Female Tourists aren’t expected to wear head coverings but you will attract less unwanted looks if your clothing is not figure hugging. Cairo is not a beach resort weee locals are used to seeing bikini-clad tourists so for your own enjoyment., that’s my top tip. I’d avoid the jacuzzi personally and steam room smelt abit mouldy but other than that, had a great time and we would return. You can also settle your room service bill and any currency or credit card which is very handy on last day
