The smelly old man next to me offers his hanky and sends me a worried grandfather look of concern. In broken English he asks if it will be my first time in Egypt (duh) and kindly comforts me with a crooked grin and a pat on the hand. As he smiles and introduces himself as Wafik, I can't help but think that this man looks exactly like Gandhi. No …
... supplies? We have an entire store room - like a warehouse! I feel like I've died and gone to Teacher Heaven. We don't have a budget, we just fill out the form and request what we need; they trust we will take what we need and not be greedy! Then, if something needs to be fixed or moved in the classroom, there is another form and the workers show up and do it. The principals try to get the forms signed within the same day and the workers are there the next ...
... very little. Items I purchased included two trash cans, 5 notebooks (composition books), 2/6liter bottles of water, collagen cream, hand cream, hair conditioner, a modular 2 drawer contraption for small items, a water bottle, 3 wash cloths, canned beans, rice, dry lentils, sticky goo stuff to hang pictures on my wall without making holes, adapters for my phone, a power cord, hangers and I can't even remember what else. In the States, I would have paid as much for ...
... than the one given to us by our Coptic (Christian Orthodox) guide. They both agreed that the country´s economic situation was really bad after the revolution. However, they had completely opposite perspectives on the story around the revolution. For example, when the revolution was taking place, prisoners were let free. What Joseph told us initially was that the military, the police or the government (don´t remember who exactly) thought that prisoners were ...
... In the evening we met our travel talk group of 26 Aussies 4 kiwis and 2 Americans and got a run down of the itinerary before heading out for a Nile Dinner with traditional belly dancing and Egyptian flag twirling. I met a guy I went to uni with who was in another group on the diner boat. Very small world. Sunday morning was the first official day of the tour and we woke and headed to the pyramids of Giza built on the West Bank of the Nile. They are built here because the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Concorde El Salam Hotel Cairo
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
