IC Cairo Citystars (the one close to the airport)

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
At first no, later yes

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked cheapest.
At check in the agent told me that my upgrade would be a 'Diplomatic Suite' without Club. Asked for club. Ni club rooms available but he offered to change to a club room next day.
Next day I called to change, they promised to call back and never did. Went to reception in the afternoon and asked to speak to the hotel manager. His response: of course you have club access as an RA, you can keep the suite.

How are the rooms?
Showing age, but relatively well kept. Separate living room and bedroom, extra toilet, around the size of two normal rooms.

How is the exec. lounge?
Nice, great service. The have me late checkout until 7:30 pm and then allowed me to stay in the lounge till 11 pm (had a late flight). Above average selection for breakfast, high tea and at dinner time.

Did you receive a welcome gift?
Relatively large fruit basked, refilled the next day. No gift or water.

How was the minibar?
Average, nothing special

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
+ Location close to the airport (hotel car is less than 10 US$)
+ Huge shopping mall next door (indoor connector)
+ Upgrade suite and club after inquiring

-Bad
- No club upgrade at first

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
Price was reasonable

Would you return?
Yes when I start my next RTW there
