The nice thing about staying at the same hotel during a months holiday is that you can leave bags there and not carry everything all up and down the country.
This is one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. When we came back the second time they said "Welcome back" The second visit they gave me room # 803. I requested this room for our 3rd and 4th visit and got it. It had a balcony overlooking the Nile. Later on in October on or 3rd and 4th stay we were able to sit out on the balcony and have a drink.
After one stay we had an early flight and they boxed us up 2 breakfasts to take with us which was nice,

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at the Marriott Cairo after spending a week in Alexandria. The hotel certainly has wow factor on arrival, particularly after spending several hours crawling across the city traffic to get there. The outward facade and lobby were impressive and there was plenty of staff on reception to check in. We found all aspects of the hotel to be very efficient, if a little lacking in personal touch. The staff all spoke good English and were reasonably attentive. The rooms were a bit on the small size, but not bad for a city, and certainly our room overlooking the garden was quite quiet. There was more room factilities than I'd previously experience in Egypt, including a kettle, iron and ironing board. The beds were extremely comfortable and the cleaning was to very good standard.

Food served within the hotel was excellent, be in in the main restaurants, garden or room service. There was an array of restaurant types and you could happily stay within the hotel confines for eating for some days and not get bored. There was also a small shopping aracade where most necessities can be purchased, along with a selection of reasonably good quality gifts. Weary of haggling every time we'd bought anything in Egypt, this was an easy way to get gifts for home sorted, haggling-free!

The location of the Cairo Marriott appeared to be as good as any in Cairo. It seemed reasonably safe to walk outside. Getting anywhere in the Cairo traffic takes time; and some getting used to the Egyptian approach to city driving! If you're a nervous passenger, don't sit in the front of taxis. Whilst the 'dodgem approach' to driving is terrifying at first, it works for them and we witnessed very few accidents. Cairo appeared to be reasonablu multi-cultural and tolerant, but not 'everything goes' and respecting local customs is important. Women particularly need to respect that revealing too much flesh is not the done thing, even when it 's extremely hot.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Cairo. There's lot to see and do in Cairo, but the traffic, noise and heat make for exhausting sight-seeing. The Cairo Marriott provided a welcome oasis to return to each day to build up energy for the next day's activities!

We stayed at the Cairo Marriott for a night at the end of a 10 day tour of Egypt. We arrived at the hotel at 6:30am after the overnight train from Luxor and we were able to check in and access our rooms immediately which was a treat because it allowed us to shower.

The hotel is located in a handy location in the centre of Cairo. It is a beautiful hotel as it used to be a palace. There is about every amenity you could wish for, tennis court, swimming pool, choice of restaurants, ATMs, shops etc.

Our room was of Western 5 star standard, lovely beds, fabulous Egyptian cotton linen, quiet, spacious.

We left very early the following morning and the hotel prepared a breakfast box for us to take with us in lieu of the buffet breakfast.

As mentioned in other reviews the food is expensive but in my mind no different from other 5 star hotels around the world.

If 5 star luxury is what you are after then this is the hotel for you.

The Cairo Marriott was built to house the Empress Eugenie, Napoleon III's wife, at the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. That structure has been expanded with two large towers and a ring of garden and poolside rooms which have all the amenitiies of a modern hotel. It is located on the island of Gezira in the Nile River in downtown Cairo. The rooms are lovely and the gardens beautiful. There are restaurants serving every ethicity within the hotel. A small casino is also located in the central building. Strolling the banks of the Nile right outside the hotel to see the many anchored restaurant and night club boats, the little party boats cruising the river and to see the city blazing with light in the evening is a delightful thing to do after a hard day of sightseeing. While the city is perhaps the noisiest I have ever been in (drivers are apparently grafted to their auto horns) the hotel is a quiet oasis. Security is excellent but not intrusive. Service at the garden tables for cocktails in the afternoon is a bit casual, but this is the Middle East so one makes allowances. The food in the Japanese and Italian restaurants was excellent and the breakfasrt buffet was outstanding. The rooms are large and well appointed.

Arrived quite late in the evening. Front desk was very helpful in giving me access to my room. It's a very large hotel but has a grand garden in a most perfect setting. The room was very comfortable with the best Egyptian cotton sheets and lots of pillows. The room was large and very clean. The breakfast had lots of variety and wonderful service. Ths is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in.
