“Great location. Great Service. Hard to fault.”
Reviewed 25 February 2012

An excellent stay at Ramses Hilton. The hotel is located in a great location with the Museum only a short 5-min walk. Whilst the hotel's decor is not modern by all means, it has a rather classy feel coupled with excellent service from the moment that you arrive.

The restaurant options are great, a very good irish style pub and a "sheesha" cafe which gets busy with locals on Friday nights.

We booked an Executive Room which had sensational views of the nile! We were even fortunate enough to have beautiful clear skies and could see the pyramids in the distance! The Executive Room is definitely the option - pay a little more but have access to private check-in, the executive lounge which serves breakfast, a large selection of evening food (you won't need dinner) and top notch service from some of the best hotel staff that we've ever come across!

Room Tip: Executive Room - pay the little extra, it is great value.

We stayed for four nights in late 2010 and had a good experience. The rooms were very clean and staff were excellent. Breakfast was delicious and the hotel is in a great location. We loved Cairo and hope the situation becomes a bit safer soon.

We stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our wonderful trip in Egypt. It has a great location, about 5 minute cab ride to the Cairo Museum, and the breakfast was delicious!
Our room had an incredible view of the Nile and the staff was very friendly.

I gave it a four star because although the rooms were very clean, they could use a bit of a face lift. Although, if you're in Cairo, I doubt you're spending too much time in your room!

Room Tip: Ask what time would be the ebst time to go to Giza and see the pyramids with your tour guide. We sat...

Staid at the Ramses Hilton for 4 nights and from arrival to departure was welcomed with smiles and helpful gestures. Staying on the Executive floor is a must as you can take full advantage of the wonderful food and free drinks in the Executive lounge. Staff were absolutely amazing. Sami who booked the tours for us was very nice and the ladies in the executive check in were outstanding even helping to change my flight when I was sick. Housecleaning was friendly and even made a crocodile out of towels for us. The location of the hotel is excellent also as it is right near the Museum and Tahrir Square. An excellent hotel with excellent staff and I will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Executive Floor. Also ask for a room with a Nile View, Tahrir Square view and Pyramids view all from...

The hotel is typical of older Hilton hotels. Security was very good as this was a concern being in the hot spot of the protests. We could not go out on the streets after nightfall but then we were too tired to do that anyway. The room was nice and had a balcony which over looked the busy streets, not a place to sit. One night the protestors marched enforce down the street by the hotel. My room had a broken mini-fridge and one day they used some chemical to clean the room that smelled terrible. The bed was very comfortable, bath was adequate. The biggest issue was that out of the 10 restaurants in the hotel only three were open. The hotel manager told me the hotel is being renovated and will be modernized 'next time we visit'. Overall, there are newer hotels but this one was okay.
