Food, and room accommodations were as fine as any higher end hotel, but at a very economical price given this desirable location. For example, it was half the price of the Four Seasons Hotel only a block away. The health center was being refurbished so...

We checked in with our Expedia booking. No hello, no welcome, just a miserable man repeating that our kids were not children. Children or not, I had put their ages (13 and 15) correctly in the search description on hotels.com and the room was booked online. He insisted that we could not stay with them in the room and insinuated...

We visited Cairo and stayed at the intercontinental semiramis. They welcomed us as high tier members of IHG and were welcomed so nicely.

We as a couple were given two single beds even though we had asked for double in advance. The cleaning was haphazard, towels...

we had one night in Cairo and this felt like a great oasis in a difficult place. The night and day restaurant was wonderful for the buffet dinner and breakfast. The hotel staff and those in the restaurant were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble
