    Historical Traveler Reviews Le Passage Heliopolis Cairo



    Wir verbrachten dort die letzte Nacht vor unserer Abreise und als wir im Hotel ankamen, war das Zimmer noch nicht fertig. Wir mussten also eine Weile warten. Der Rezeptionsbereich war sehr schön und es war viel dort los. Unser Zimmer war dann dreckig und das Bett sah so aus, als wenn dort gerade jemand geschlafen hätte. Ein wenig Staub ist ja kein Problem, aber Fußnägel... Der Restaurantmanager war sehr unfreundlich, man kann es fast schon rotzfrech nennen und das Essen hat dann auch noch fade geschmeckt. Auch hier waren die Tische dreckig und die Angestellten unterhielten sich lieber als die Gäste zu bedienen. Ich weiß, es handelt sich nur um ein Flughafenhotel, aber trotzdem erwarte ich einen gewissen Standard. Ganz schlecht. Es scheint fast schon die Regel zu sein, denn das Mövenpick Resort in Aswan war genauso schlecht.



    Dieses Hotel gehört ohne Frage zu den besten Hotels, in denen ich in Kairo bisher übernachtet habe und in die Top Ten meiner Lieblingshotels auf der Welt! Ich war jetzt schon drei Mal dort und jedes Mal bin ich aufs neueste begeistert über die anständigen Zimmerpreise, die sauberen und komfortablen Zimmer (minimalistischer Chick), das superfreundliche Personal und die sehr lockere Atmosphäre. Ich wünschte, es würde in jeder Stadt auf der Welt ein Mövenpick - Heliopolis geben! Das Essen ist auch super dort. Es gibt dort so viele unterschiedliche Restaurants zur Auswahl. Frühstück ist im Preis mit drin und auch das ist sehr gut, vor allem der Kaffee. Tun Sie sich den Gefallen und gehen Sie mal hin.

    Un ottimo hotel


    Ho soggiornato dal 14 al 17 agosto 2006 all'hotel Movenpick Heliopolis del Cairo e ne sono rimasto veramente soddisfatto. L'accoglienza è cortese e sollecita e il personale è sempre sorridente, presente e disponibile. Ottima l'insonorizzazione delle camere, la mia dava sul parco dove in tre giorni vi sono stati tre o quattro banchetti di nozze (chi ha assistito ad un matrimonio egiziano sa quanto siano "sonori")! La cucina ha ampiamente riscosso il mio plauso sia per la bontà delle pietanze che per l'ampia scelta di piatti internazionali ed egiziani. Non vi perdete i dolci locali una vera e propria leccornia. Consiglio anche il bar dove potrete gustare un vero, profumato e gustoso caffè espresso. Per ultimo vorrei parlare delle splendide composizioni floreali disseminate per l'hotel, sempre curate e con bellissimi fiori freschi, danno un tocco di eleganza e di colore che rende l'ambiente ancora più piacevole ed accogliente.

    I hate this hotel


    I've been guest of this hotel for 4 months. Each night they celebrate 2 or 3 weddings in the GARDENS. They play LOUD music there until 2am. If you are planning to go there for business, forget it!!! Its the HELL. Imagine yourself awake until 2am and then standing up at 6am to go to the office. 2 weeks ago they decided to change the internet provider, now 30 minutes cost 20USD instead of 5USD.

    I warned you!!! now it is up to you!!!



    This hotel is hands-down the best hotel I have stayed in Cairo and I would say it would be in my top-ten favorite hotels in the world!

    I have stayed there 3 times now and each time I was blown away by the reasonable rates, very clean and comfy rooms (minimalist chic), super-friendly staff and very relaxed atmosphere. I wish there was a Movenpick - Heliopolis like this in every city in the world!

    The best thing you can try is their food as, so many restaurant choices and different delicious cuisines .

    Breakfast is provided, and very satisfactory it is. The coffee still lingers in my memory as outstanding. Do yourself a favor, check it out.

    What an experience


    I had the time of my life good food excellent service and fabulous property

    Tres bien


    Nous avons sejourné une nuit au moevenpick heliopolis car nous devions prendre un vol le lendemain matin. nous avons apprecie cet hotel qui possede plusieurs restaurants, 2 piscines chauffées 28 et 30°C (nous avons un bb de 5 mois), une aire de jeux pour enfant.

    Malgre qu'il soit proche de l'aeroport nous n'avons pas entendu une seul fois le bruit d'un avion.

    Seul reproche, c'est leur systeme de paiement en fin de sejour qui ne nous a pas plu. en fait ils vous debitent le premier jour une certaine somme qui est fonction de vos nombres de nuitées en garantie (ex:200 eur pour une nuit) et vs recredite ensuite la difference par rapport a ce que vous avez depense, et cela a duré 20 mns pour attendre la machine.

    Sinon tres sympa

    Polished marble, cheerful staff


    I stayed for a week in March 2006. The room was modern European and quite small. It was tight enough for one person, not good for two.

    The public areas are very nice. I enjoyed sitting in the lobby bar and watching the world go by. Each table had a martini glass full of water with petals floating. There was a string trio every evening, a nice touch. Lots of polished marble give the place an expensive feel. There was frequently a member of staff hoovering, polishing or dusting. My room was only one stair up so I took the stairs rather than the elevator. The stair carpet was threadbare at the edges.

    Restaurants maintain a good standard but not exceptional. The lobby bar was not as good. I worked my way through the menu but all of it was reheated and not as good as it should have been. How can you reheat deep-fried shrimp or tempura veggies? Even the mezze was mediochre.

    Staff were cheerful and friendly. Unusually today, they are all local nationals. Try that in London, New York or Toronto. Security is tight. Vehicles cannot enter the driveway without being inspected first and there's always a couple of guys with mean-looking guns on hand. Entering the hotel is like getting on a flight - there's a metal detector and baggage X-ray. Sign of the times, unfortunately. Overall, I was happy with the experience and would stay there again.



    We arrived for our last night before flying home and our room was not ready.

    Had to wait for the room to be prepared.

    Reception was very smart looking and busy.

    Shown to our room which was dirty and looked like someone had slept in the bed already.

    A bit of dust is acceptable but not somebodys toe nails.

    The restaurant manager was most unfriendly , almost snotty , and the food was stale.

    Again the tables were dirty and the attendants were busy talking.

    I know it is only an airport hotel but I expect certain standards.

    Very poor.

    Seems to be a theme because the Movenpick Resort in Aswan was of the same poor standard.

    Convenient, close to the airport


    We used this hotel, for our last night in Cairo. Rooms are good, although very small. The breakfast is excellent (one of the best which I experienced), the pool is also great, to spend the last morning in Cairo, away from the hustle and bustle, before catching the intercontinental flight. Very close to the airport, with the added convenience of the shuttle bus.

Makes you wonder why they can't get along. Then again, I remember reading about how the greatest hatred and violence is commonly committed by people most similar to one another. I also got to hang out with 2 Palestinian families who are staying at our hostel. They arrived around the ...

    ... they don't stop and keep following you. There tactic consists of three phases. First, they just bug you, asking if you want a ride, to buy something, whatever they're selling. It's the polite approach: what's your name, where are you from, etc. failing that, they try the sob story: there are no tourists, my horse needs to eat, I need to feed my family, etc. not saying its not true, but they try to manipulate your emotions. Failing that, they try the angry and yelling ...

    Unfortunately, we are on a curfew and have to be in our homes by 7pm. We follow the curfew religiously. Many days so far, my roomies and I have gone out shopping to get necessities and found ourselves in a dilemma because it's 4:30 and we haven't planned for dinner and the restaurants and shops will be closing by 6:00 or 6:30 to let their ...

    In the Maldives, women in full Muslim dress smiled at me as they played with their young sons, while people on the street would say 'hello' in passing. In Dubai nobody batted an eyelid at my presence, apart from the occasional nod and smile on the subway. And in Egypt people have shaken my hand in the street (without wanting anything in return) and shown nothing but good manners. Our tour ...
