Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Cairo Hotel, Towers & Casino Giza
Among my best stays in Egypt
My SPG room on the upper floor was both spacious and spotless with a large bath and incredible views of the Nile. The entire could not have been more helpful.
The public areas were huge and pleasant. The location on the West Bank was an easy walk over the Nile to the Opera House and the Egyptian Museum. Lots of restaurants in the hotel. For breakfast buffet I would suggest the 1st floor rather than the Garden.
For one thing, it has a no smoking area. With the exception of the less than speedy checkout I could not find one negative.
On my return to Cairo I stayed at one of the 5 star hotels on the the other side of the Nile. The Sheration Towers was definitely a better experience.
Over rated for sure!
Beds are so old that boards are put under mattresses to keep bed from collapsing. The buffet food was less then average . The hair dryers in the room were dangerous they are so old. The refrigerators were not properly cleaned, mold was apparent. The pipes leaked in bathroom when the sink was filled with water. They moved me 2 times and I still was not satisfied. I noticed that other people were complaining as well. The pollution in Cairo was unbearable and the dirty terraces were just simply a turn off. This hotel is not even 3 star. Stay at your own risk.
I stayed in Cairo for 8 days with a few good friends during the summer of 2004. You must be specific as to which Cairo you are staying at when taking a taxi from the airport, as there are 3 in the greater Cairo/Giza area.
I stayed at the Cairo Sheraton for 1 week in September. Overall it is a god hotel, very much of the standard you would expect from the Sheraton brand in Africa/Middle East. The Rooms were serviced quickly and without problems of housekeeping knocking whilst in the rooms, the restaurants were good, along with the bars! Also being a gambler, the 24 hour casino is an added bonus!
We stayed here in September 2005 and were very impressed with this hotel. The location is fantastic - right on the Nile and just a 15 minute walk to the Egyptian museum.
The room we stayed in had a wonderful view of the Nile. The room was spacious and well decorated with a balcony.
The swimming pool area was well maintained and there were numerous staff serving to take your bar order. However, there is no escaping the noise of city centre Cairo here.
The only let down was the spa - it is in desperate need of an update. We were very concerned that the electrics for the jacuzzi were about a foot above the jacuzzi itself!
Above all we had a great stay here. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
We stayed here on our honeymoon in June this year - we had a room in the Nefertitti Tower which seems to be the newest part of the hotel. The room was very big with an excellent view over the nile - it was also very nicely decorated and had a lovely marble bathroom. All the staff were reallly helpful and we reallly enjoyed our stay - I would definately recommend this hotel. The hotel offers a good choice of restaurants, the Japenese one is excellent - however we did not really enjoy the others too much but I think that is just our taste and not a reflection on the hotel.
Very nice hotel, good location
My wife and I stayed in the Sheraton in March 2005 for 3 nights at the end of a great tour round Egypt. We were given a room with balcony overlooking the Nile, what a great view. The non-Towers side has better views it seems. Good size room, very clean and much above some of the Sheraton's I have stayed in the USA. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good too. Italian restaurant OK but not brilliant. Location on the Giza side of the Nile was very good, about 5 mins to a subway station and actually quite walkable from the city centre. Overall a good recommendation.
Great choice in Cairo
This is what you expect when you visit a Sheraton hotel. Rooms are big and nicely decorated, most will have a view of the city and the Nile. The staff is very helpful and nice, and the restaurants are the best part in my opinion, we visited the Lebanese and the Moroccan ones, both offered excellent service and food (which appears to be the standard according to an earlier review). Given the fact Cairo is so big, location was not that important to us since we hired a driver for our stay, but in case that matters, the Sheraton Cairo is within walking distance of the Egyptian Museum.
stayed here in the executive room level in "apparently" refurbished rooms.
Two hotels in one
Have stayed in Sheraton Towers for about 3 months.
The hotel offers two options, the new and the old tower. I would recommend the new as it is cleaner, with bigger rooms and better decoration.
Excellent italian restaurant, and the best japanese in the Middle East (so say the locals).
