    I normally live in my flat in Cairo in Mohandaseen , or stay with freinds. This time travelling with my family I decided to try out another hotel in Cairo. The room we had 910 was perfect for my couin, uncle and my self. With a set of stairs separating us we had our own space, a great balcony view of the Nile, Fridge, Free internet, two televisions. Breakfast choice was fantastic, Front office staff were very helpful and delightful. I asked for help ordering Koshery for my family who had not yet tried it. Asked for a late check out so my elderly uncle could rest before his flight home. Rooms are spotless, bathrooms big. Location is amazing with a Metro grocery store open for water, juice and things we needed. Close to great restaurants, the Nile in one of my favourite places in Cairo, the Island of Zamalek. Only two things that ruined the perfect experience.
    1. The woman who works at the restaurant are rude, unfreindly, impolite.. irritated and never seem to smile. When you asked for something the high pitched respons was WAIT. Instead of I will get that for you in just a minute. Instead of would you like coffee or tea. It is What you want. Irritating.
    2. On April 25 I had an early morning train to catch to Alexandria. I looked for a taxi but not wanting to be late I asked if it would be possible to pull a taxi up while I got my elderly uncle. Instead of telling me before hand that the taxi would cost me 3 times more. Since I have lived in Cairo I know what taxi cost. Intead of the 5-7 Egyptian pound which I should have paid. I paid 35 Egyptian pound for a short ride. Neither the door man nor the receiptionist told me that the cost would be three times more, then the door man still expected a tip for deceiving me. That was annoying. Its too bad because after a great experience it left me with a bad taste and mistrust. If they had been up front when I asked on the phone it would not have been a problem but 1 minute before I left was to be deceiving and dishonest.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Golden Tulip Flamenco Cairo

    Great value for money - loved the Golden Tulip Hotel

    from

    If you are looking for a good hotel in Cairo, let me take some of the guess work out for you. I have just returned from 2 weeks at the Golden Tulip Felmenco Hotel in Zemalek - Cairo. It is a great location, central for most things. Very clean and comfortable, good service and represents value for money. Their websight is a good reflection of what it is actually like. It will suit couples, single and families alike.

    There is a supermarket and Internet Cafe opposite and just round the corner is a very small and cosy Italian restaurant called Dido. Fabulous pasta and a good meal with drinks for two of us cost £2.40!!!! You can't do better than that!

    I will definately return to this place -

    Good Luck

    Very good hotel

    from

    Very good value. The location is great. The hotel can also provide you taxis if you want to travel around the city, or to the pyramids (Giza, Dahshur or Saqqara). Ask for Sayyed Heffny, the driver we used. The restaurant is pricy, considering that Zamalek has good cheap restaurant outside. There is an internet cafe across the street.

    Good location

    from

    Request a room above the 6th floor. Our room was excellent but staff could be unhelpful at times. Doormen let the side down by trying to charge excessive prices for taxis- a journey to the end of the street was 20 times more than it should have been and when I refused , he let me struggle out with 2 suitcases to find an alternative. You know who you are!!

    Great location,small hotel

    from

    stayed here for 5 days, fab hotel!however, i should point out, it is not a 5star hotel...but i found the rooms clean and pleasent. Staff were very friendly, and rooms were as clean and comfortable as other rooms i have stayed in cairo (including sheratons,hiltons etc)

    there is a pizzahut located just outside! which kind of makes up for the hotels lack of facilities. Wasnt impressed with the restaurant..

    Satelite channels limited too

    Also just behind the pizza hut is a great supermarket called metro so u will find everythin u need in there!

    I would definatley recommend this hotel, area is fantastic (zamalek, loads of great restaurant, upper class part of cairo so very safe and quiet)but if your looking for 5* unneccessary luxuries like huge pool this might not be for u!

You will be better off if you carry your toiletries with you.Bon Voyage..

    Good value in Cairo

    from

    While I was not amazed by this place, it lived up to expectations. My organization put on a weeklong workshop and had a number of people staying at this hotel, along with the meetings being held here. All went very well-- good-sized and clean rooms, helpful and responsive staff, nice meeting facilities, and all at a good price. Also, we had our lunches taken care of by the hotel and they were all very good. The location was also good, and the evening group Nile dinner cruise that the hotel set up for us was very nice.

    Good Service and helpful staff

    from

    The hotel is perfect place to whom goes to Cairo for work and for plasure also.

    It's directly on the great Nile River and it's in the middle of Zamalek Island and it's near to down town of Cairo and in the night I used a good bar in the lobby of the hotel otherwise I ent out some time to walk in the streets whtch is ver safe.

    Also you can see the smily faces of the staff specialy of the restaurants and they are professional doing there works. (Not like the other hotels the ask for tips but in Flamenco NO)

    I recommand this hotel to all the europian people whom want want to work with plasure in Cairo the town of the PHAROES

    Best Location in Cairo

    from

    Very convinient location, close to a lot of restaurants, markets, Egyptian Museum, Opera

    Friendly staff

    Expensive, uninterested staff: a very tired hotel

    from

    The Flamenco is like most Cairo Hotels - high room prices are justified by location (in this case, in "high class" Zamalek), but service is slovenly and unfriendly. The staff are simply uninterested in serving guests; but just watch how they react when their own Management turn up for breakfast - all stops are pulled out. It is also annoying to know that, as a foreigner in Egypt, you are paying discriminatory prices - Egyptians pay much, much less for the same service. But you have no choice - so grin and bear it, I guess!

    An unexpected treat!

    from

    Stayed at the Flamenco in January this year and was overly pleased with the service as well as the hotel itself. We stayed for two days prior to our week long cruise on the Nile and then returned for two more days. The staff was above par every day and even remembered us when we returned. After the first day at breakfast, we never had to ask for our chosen coffee drinks! They were on our table the minute we returned from the sumptuous breakfast buffet. My luggage was late in getting to me from Prague and the hotel upgraded us to a suite for the trouble even though it was not their fault. There is a 24 hour internet cafe across the street as well as a market for all the things you forgot or midnight snacks. The location in Zamalek is very accesable and taxi service was readily available. The food they serve was extraordinary and the small bar downstairs was cozy and friendly. Maid service was great and the front desk was very helpful with information. Although they do not cash travellers checks, they knew exactly how to get to the nearest bank. Being two single women travelling, we were cautious about our surroundings, but at the hotel, we felt very safe and taken care of. If I ever return to Egypt, I will surely stay at the Flamenco again!!

    Egypt! Last night we touched down in Egypt, bought our visa and got our luggage along with our second passport stamp (I guess the Greek government doesn't need to stamp your passport if you visit on a boat). The temperature was nice and it was dark at 7:30 at night. This morning we got up early, 6:30 and the sun was already up and it was hot out there. It's Ramadan and the country is mainly muslim which will present challenges and opportunities for our visit. ...

We were so tired now but pushed ourselves to walk back to the hotel rather than cabbing it. I checked out facey and liked to see all the Anzac Day comments and to hear that Marg (my sister) had watched Sam's football. David and I enjoyed a relaxing shower and those plush bath ...

From there, we began the main adventure of the day - our desert safari. What is a desert safari you may ask? Well, it consists of driving to the middle of the desert, then taking our four wheel drive jeep off-roading through the giant sand dunes to see the sites ...

We talked about his thoughts on Turkey, saying that he thought the country was very sad. I told him I thought it was more quiet and relaxed. I could tell that by the way people just sit and drink tea for hours. Everyone talks so quietly. The Greeks are full ...
