We are now in full-on tourist mode. I've always wanted to go to Egypt. I thought that the pyramids would be awesome. I was half right. The pyramids are pretty awesome -- the pictures here don't capture how monstrous they really are. What I got wrong is that the pyramids were probably number ten on the list of cool stuff we saw. We started and ended …

... barricades... Scary. What was even more scary was the staring, like huge groups of men staring at me and the other blonde girl as we were walking past. Walking past the tanks, they had little windows and all you would see was people's faces looking out staring. Scary. It was only because we were white with blonde hair but it was still a bit unsettling, having such blatant staring.
Inside the museum we were the only people for a good hour and a bit, ...

It occurs to me that Islam is one of the most ingenious religions on the planet. Don't worry, I'm not converting, but hear me out. What other religion asks its devotees to pray five times a day, every day? Not only asks, but reminds through the broadcast of the Call to Prayer? These days, the broadcast ...

The show was an hour long and was OK. The lights and projections were not bad, but I think they need to update the story and the voices. It seemed disconnected and I did not understand what the point of the stories that had been selected.
We returned to the van on good time and did not have to deal with much traffic. We ...

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Citystars Cairo
Este es un hotel bonito. Las habitaciones son de buen tamaño, están bien equipadas y de las duchas sale mucha agua caliente. Las conexiones a Internet eran buenas y rápidas.
Hotel is really lovely has everything you could need. The staff can be a little slow at doing things but are really helpful.
The room has great internat access at a reasonable price.
The bar and restaurants are very good and again very reasonable.
I think for the price, abour £70 per room per night it is a great hotel and a great base for exploring Egypt.
I did stay in this hotel for one day only as I had such a late flight.
5 stars for the hotel 1 star for employees
I am a member of starwood and priority club
i stayed in the hotel for one night and that was enough
first the reception would not give me a hotel room over looking the swiming pool and gave me above the street which i hated. then they gave me a no smoking room even though my booking was for a smoking room and when i called to change the room to a smoking room and after calling three people and waiting 45 minutes they sent me an ash tray. the people at the reception were not very helpful but they serve european and americans with a huge smile and i think i paied more than them. I do not recommend this hotel if you are asian or african.
What an amazing stay we had in the Citystars Intercontinental in Nasr City, Cairo. We actually are foreign residents of Egypt, so it was a great getaway for us. Sometimes when we are tired of all the noise, dust, pollution, culture, etc., we take a weekend off and go swimming and relax.
A class above the rest
Was here on a business trip and stayed in the InterContinental Citystars for six nights. And what a glorious experience it was! The hotel is definitely a world class act. The lobby area is stunning, service flawless and the rooms and facilities - top-notch! And did I mention the largest shopping mall in Cairo conveniently situated beside the hotel? True, it's a good 25-30 mins drive to downtown but that shouldn't deter you. It was nice to escape the hustle and bustle that is Cairo and retreat to an oasis that is the IC Citystars. The breakfast is legendary and the pool area was excellent. All in all, a superb hotel that's definitely a cut above the rest!
The CityStars Intercontinental Hotel is part of a growing complex that includes, in addition to the hotel, a residential hotel for longer stays, an Holiday Inn under construction and the CityStars Mall that houses about 100 stores, a fast food court, 15 theater screens, and an Egyptian 'bazaar.' The Mall is advertised to grow to 500 stores in the future.
I stayed here alone as a female business traveler last summer for about a month and was overall very impressed with the hotel. My room was always immaculately cleaned and was really a sanctuary above the noisy Cairo streets. The person who cleaned my room always left (or handed to me in the hallway) extra bottles of water and went out of his way to ensure that I was comfortable. The staff throughout the hotel and in the restaurants were extremely welcoming and frequently offered extra perks and complimentary dishes. I didn't spend much time in the mall but I can see how it would be an attraction to many people.
Immaculate Hotel with A1 Service
We stayed at the Intercontinental Citystars Heliopolis for 1 night on 8th November. The hotel is still quite new and has a very good standard of rooms and reception areas. The service from all staff was impeccable. Room service was a particularly reasonable and memorable experience with a hot trolley that converted into a table complete with crisp white linen and flowers. The hotel is situated next to a large shopping centre more akin to America and Europe than Egypt.
The only downside is that this hotel is a good 30 minutes of hair raising driving from the centre of Cairo so if your priorities are the ancient sites and Egyptian museum a more central hotel may be better.
I recently went for a week to Cairo to experience Egypt and its hiostory and culture. I stayed at the new Intercontinental Citystars in Heliopolis which was only 10 minutes from the Airport and 25 minutes to downtown Cairo and the Nile.
