Cairo Semiramis

Cairo Semiramis

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Overall yes.

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked rewards nights and got a Nile View King

How are the rooms?
The rooms are a little dated but in good condition and clean.

How is the exec. lounge?
Nice space and great service. The breakfast was very nice and the spread at happy hour was also good. Somewhat limited drinks selection with cheaper brands but very good overall.

Did you receive a welcome gift?
Yes, a notebook/diary.

How was the minibar?
Very limited when we arrived. One local beer, one Heineken, and one white wine. There were other spirits on the menu but not in the bar. Later a red wine was added and, on our third day, a 500ml bottle of vodka appeared.

What was good and what was bad?

-Good
- Service throughout the hotel was great
- In house restaurants - we had the Thai for lunch and Italian for dinner
- Club lounge
- Great location for tourists

-Bad
- Inconsistent housekeeping. We only had turn down one night and they were very cheap with the toiletries. The shower gel and shampoo were only replaced when they were completely empty.
- Mini bar inconsistency

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
Yes. Paid rate was only US$100/night but taxes run close to 40%. Considering that is was decent for 25000/night.
The restaurants in the hotel are also a good value.

Would you return?
