Worst Customer Service Ever
The worst customer service I've ever experienced. DO NOT book here - they will take your money and not refund it! You wouldn't even believe that this is an Intercontinental!

Beautiful resort
We had to request a new room due to the lingering smell of smoke in the first one we were in. The staff was kind enough to upgrade us to a Nile view room. Very helpful staff, great restaurants, and the spa was an amazing experience. Would return in a heartbeat!

Wonderful hotel in the perfect location. We were able to get a very last minute reservation at a fantastic rate. This hotel is located very close to Tahir square and right on the Nile. I felt very secure at this location and very much enjoyed my stay. However, there was a time consuming problem with the room keys. Every time I left the room I had to return to the desk, on one occasion I even had to return twice, to have the key reset. This was a bit time consuming as the front desk is often busy. Other than this minor problem, the room was wonderful and I will definitely pick this location again if ever in Cairo. Thank you!
