... I finally spotted two women in niqabs. I had been expecting to see a lot more women completely covered up, but even in my flight I counted only three women wearing colourful headscarves, which seemed more of a fashionable ascessory to me than a symbol of female oppression.

After I cleared immigrations I seized my chance to go to the toilet, before my efficient guide showed up again with his next commands. Indeed, as soon as I grabbed my luggage from the belt, there ...

... Yesir', appears in shorts, flip-flops, an apron and a broad grin – certainly the most hippy thing I've seen since arriving in Egypt – and the two embrace heartily like uncle and nephew. Yesir, I decide, is one of those people who make you feel instantly at home, and we trundle down the track being greeted by a bundle of bouncy puppies as host and friend talk news from round here and news from the Capital.

At the bottom of the track the two stop and turn to ...

... Pyramid of Khafre (Chephren) and the Pyramid of Menkaure (Mycerinus). From a distance Khafre's pyramid looks larger than Khufu's, but it is simply built on higher ground. When they were built they were covered in gleaming white limestone - now most of the casing stones have been removed but you can still see some on the apex of Khafre's pyramid. I stand by my earlier statement in that Abu Simbel was a more fantastic experience, but the ...

... Then multiply, and multiply and multiple. Relief is the enclosing trees on leafy avenues of Giza punctuated by little tea shops full of Egyptian men in white gowns sharing a yarn and a shisha.

King Hotel is in amongst the leafy streets and we secure a room on the 4th floor. We have a day to simply explore the local streets. We don’t actually get that far, we’re accosted by tour guides who have a pretty shmick routine down. Something about how they ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Concorde El Salam Hotel Cairo

    Family friendly

    from

    Very nice welcome. Polite and helpful staff. Spotless. Good size family rooms. All requests responded to immediately. Inexpensive meals and room service. Concierge very helpful and great advice.

    Accueillant pour les familles

    from

    Accueil très agréable. Personnel serviable et bien élevé. Hôtel immaculé. Des chambres de famille de bonne dimension. Toutes les demandes sont satisfaites immédiatement. Repas et service des chambres peu onéreux. Concierge très serviable et de bon conseil. Côté négatif, le quartier la nuit. Probablement sans danger mais des rues très animées et mal éclairées.

    Nice hotel with good customer service

    from

    After reading some of the reviews of this hotel I resigned myself to - not expect much! However my concerns were put at ease. My reservation was made via email directly to the sales team which was subsequently confirmed with prices within hours of my initial enquiry.

    Genau richtig!

    from

    Aufgrund einiger Bewertungen, die gelesen hatte, war ich etwas unsicher, was mich im Concorde El Salam erwarten würde. Allerdings war meine persönliche Erfahrung sehr positiv. Es hat eine gute Lage in Heliopolis und der Flughafen ist einfach erreichbar. Die Lobby ist elegant, die Zimmer sind sauber und komfortabel, das Essen im Restaurant ist vorzüglich und der Service gut.

    Just right!

    from

    Based on some reviews I had seen, I was a little uneasy about what I might find at the Concorde El Salam. However, my personal experience was very positive. Good location in Heliopolis convenient to airport, elegant lobby, clean and comfortable room, excellent food in the restaurant, good service. Only caveat is that rooms in the main hotel are better than the poolside rooms with sliding glass doors. We stayed in two different rooms for separate stays over five nights and much preferred the main building. The poolside rooms have thin walls and noise from nearby activities carries into the room. Also, our sliding glass door in room 088 had no working lock from the inside. I recommend the hotel and would definitely stay there again.

    Big Dissapointment

    from

    We had a splendid experience at our first hotel we stayed in Cairo when our tour started. We ended our tour with a stay at this hotel. Rooms were clean and comfartable. We went for supper at the Italian Restaurant and requested a table in the non-smoking area. To our dissapointment we realised that there is nothing seperating the smokers from the non-smokers. One of the guests were sitting there smoking a cigar. The whole restaurant was filled with his smoke and smell. When we complaint we were told that he was a very important guest. In short, our meal tasted like tobaco leaves and our clothes were stinking.

    Un hotel fantástico

    from

    Acabamos de volver de un viaje a El Cairo. Nos alojamos en el Concorde El Salam durante ocho noches. El hotel era fantástico. El servicio era bueno. No teníamos que ir dando propinas a todo el mundo. No sé si eso se debía al hecho de que pensaban que éramos egipcios. A mi sobrino de seis años y mi sobrina de nueve les encantó la piscina y los columpios, y el pequeño patio de recreo que tenían en los jardines. Tienen una piscina pequeña para los niños, así como una piscina grande. Era relajante solo estar sentados en el jardín. El hotel tenía varios restaurantes y su desayuno de buffet era excelente, servían comida caliente y fría (que se incluía en la tarifa). Los camareros y camareras eran educados y entendían bien el inglés. Las habitaciones estaban limpias y cambiaban las sábanas cada día. Tenía un problema con el aire acondicionado, pero vino un hombre de mantenimiento y lo reparó enseguida.

    Está bien

    from

    Ciertamente, es práctico para el aeropuerto, lo que está bien si, como nosotros, llegáis y os vais temprano por la mañana. El autobús lanzadera del hotel era práctico.

    OK

    from

    It is certainly handy for the airport which is good if like us you arrive and depart in the early hours of the morning, hotel shuttle bus was useful.

    Fantastic hotel

    from

    We have just returned from a trip to Cairo. We stayed in the Concorde El Salam for 8 nights. The hotel was fantastic. The service was good. We didn't have to keep tipping everyone. I don't know if this was due to the fact that they thought we were Egyptians. My 6 year old nephew and 9 year old neice loved the swimming pool and the swings and small adventure playground they had in their grounds. They have 1 small pool for the kinds as well as a large pool. It was relaxing just sitting in their garden. The hotel had variety of restaurants and their buffet breakfast was excellent, serving hot and cold food, (which was included in our price). The waitors/waitresses were curteous and understood English well. The bedrooms were all clean and sheets were changed everyday. I had a problem with the air conditioning but a service man came and repaired it straight away.
