Can't get it... why this place is so high ranked? Just because of the direct access to the mall?
The hotel isn't new anymore, it's old style with its beige/green design. When I saw the room I decided to upgrade at $ 80 to a newly renovated Club Room (which was nice, with iPod station & a fantastic rain shower). The Club is "okay", old style - nothing to talk about.
The worst @ the Interconti is the food. I've been there attending a seminar & all the food they served was cold!
Outside they do have a nice shisha bar, but it already closed 12 o'clock.
Cairo has such fantastic & modern hotels such as 2x Fairmont, 2x Four Seasons, Kempnsiki, a Ritz Carlton is coming up.. so no real reason to stay @ the Interconti.
