nice hotel but little expensive. You can find many resturants at the hotel and you can enjoy also at the casino.

The hotel is huge but, the lobby and the security is a put off. The staff at the check-in could be more friendlier, the bathrooms need updating. Even though there were hardl many guests there, they refuse to upgrade our room to nile view. There was a "co-operate/business" like atmosphere there, where I did not feel valued. On plus side the holtel is at the heart of cairo and we could go to all the attraction easily and cheaply.

I was staying at the club floor during a business trip to Cairo and MUST say that the staff at the 18. th floor is beyond fantastic. All are kind, helpful, patient, and create perfect sorroundings needed on a business trip.
I warmly recommend Semiramis with its dedicated staff.

I stayed in 1 month ago with my wife and kid for 3 nights!!
The experience from arrival till departure was very unpleasant.
starting with the NO smoking sign!! and everyone is smoking everywhere!!! even at the lobby!! and reception check in!! there was a man smoking and cause he is a guest no one dared to tell him to put it off!!
breakfast was a disaster!
the hotel became extremely poor!!
i am Egyptian by the way.. and i know how this hotel was like before now.. its extremely POOR!!
Room view is nice specially the nile view, rooms are small, but clean.
i would recommend Marriott or Sofitel el gazeera
PLUS!! to eat or drink in any of the restaurants!! is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE for no good reason!!
and if i didnt pay cash or credit card! i.e. if you let them add the bill to the room! they add 3%!!!!
one more thing!! i gave the laundry my brand new shirt to iron it came back with a blue pen marking the shirt's pocket..well to be honest they cleaned it after i bashed them!! but still!! why would i give them a new shirt and they give it back to be marked!!

Room Tip: if you still insist on going, choose a nile view to feel the difference

Against all recommendations, I decided to visit Cairo between the 12th and 16th of June 2012. EVERYTHING you see on TV is false, the city is very, very safe and friendly for tourists and i felt that in the hotel as well.

I specifically chose the Semiramis as it was behind Tahrir Square and on the nile road, so if i needed a quick getaway I can just hail a cab on the road and head to a safer place; but i never needed to do that since nothing remotely dangerous was happening in the area.

The hotel is staffed with very friendly, professional and welcoming staff. Check in was a breeze and the room amazing. I should mention that I got a free upgrade to a nile-view room on a high floor before I arrived to the hotel, so this was a major plus. However, as a lone traveller I would've expected a king/queen size bed, but was given two queen sized beds instead. Ah well, can't complain really.

Breakfast was part of the package and it was just delicious to say the least. The shisha cafe was also pretty good and had excellent food, shisha and overall ambiance.

I highly, highly recommend a trip to Egypt and a stay at this hotel, which is within walking distance to Tahrir Square and Talaat Harb street, a major street-shops area that is very busy at night.

Thank you, Semiramis, for the wonderful accommodation.

Room Tip: Chose a room on a high floor so you can sleep at night as the nile road can be quite noisy at night (Thankfully though, the curtains come with some sort of grey sound-proofing material that keeps the light and noise out for a very comfortable sleep).
