Lovely location & hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 12, 2005

The hotels public rooms are lovely, very grand. This is a very large hotel with lots of restaurants. we went to the pub they have and had a great night with Karaoke, it was a bit weird for a pub though as they have waiter service. For a city hotel this had the best breakfast selection I have ever seen. The rooms were a slight let down compaired to the rest of the hotel, though very well sized & clean they belonged in a 3* hotel. Would still recommed this hotel.

Unique Quality: Built around an old palace

Directions: On the nile

Marriott Hotel is one of the best hotels that I have stayed to, in my trips abroad. It has incorporated the old Gezira Palace, built in the 19th century and is perfectly renovated, with golden mirrors, chandeliers in all its old glory. The prices that you pay for food or accomodation are very small compared to European standards. You would pay similar prices for a 2 or 3* hotel in Europe. The breakfast is one of the best and most abundant I've seen. It has a beautiful garden, as a reminiscence of the Khedive Gardens that used to cover the whole of Gezira island, made by special landscape architects brought from France and Italy.

Unique Quality: The hotel has a very good selection of shops.
- It has an amazing french bakery with croissants (amond croissant is extraordinary).
- Also the Nomad shop is very good with handicrafts made by local ethnic groups.
- Another very well hidden secret is the NewMan clothes shop which sells products made by the NewMan brand in Egypt at a fraction of the normal prices. For example instead of 50$ everything that you buy costs 10-15$ from jeans to shirts, t-shirts, trousers etc.
- The Egyptian restaurant at the garden is fantastic. You can sit there even in winter, as they cover it with tents. It has very good kebabs. The 'Mixed Grill" plate is particularly good. The prices are not expensive for European Standards and you can also smoke a sheesh there.

Eventhough i live in Cairo but still i like from time to time to spend couple of days in a haotel atmosphere with a swimming pool.
Marriott is my favorite if talking about cairo hotels. The view is a nice one on the nile.
the hotel is 5 minutes away from downtown.
I normally spend the early morning in the balcony having my turkish coffee while watching a bright side of cairo. I then can enjoy the swimming pool which has an outdoor and indoor facility as well as a health center that includes a gym.
A shisha is fine near the pool area.
At 6 pm you can enjoy a couple of drinks at the harries pub on happy hour from 6-7pm daily (buy 1 get 1 free).

Unique Quality: They have a huge garden area with tables and in winter time it is the best hang out for Egyptians in the sun and while smelling and eating the grilled meat.
If you have kids then it is ideal to stay in Marriott cause it is spacious and secured well.
There is the harries pub night show with a live band, so dont miss it if you dont feel like sleeping.

Just another hotel in Cairo

It is a beautiful hotel, the gardens are splendid. The casino looks really nice. Several nice restaurants inside to hotel's garden. The service in general is good.

The only thing that disappointed me was the tones of dust under my bed. And on the top of that, if you look carefull in the dust you would notice a note saying: yes, we look here too :)

Unique Quality: In the heart of Cairo, on the Nile
Six acres of lush, tranquil gardens

Directions: Cairo Opera House (1.0 km)

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Originally built in 1869 as a palace for the French Empress Eugenie, this gorgeous hotel in a tranquil setting on an island in the Nile remains fit for royalty,its rooms are fully equipped.

Two modern towers encapsulate a lush garden with pool and ornate golden palace facade—a truly magical place at sunset.

Unique Quality: Many tourism professionals consider the Marriott one of the finest examples of western style hotels in Egypt. So many of these show little in the way of Egyptian architecture, but the Marriott stands out among chain hotels as a splendid example. It makes one feel that they are indeed, in Egypt.

We stayed there back in 1996,I was pleased with everything,it's a child friendly hotel (as most places in Egypt),they even have a baby sitter service incase you wanted to go out by night.

Directions: located on the Nile

If you want to go back in time, Marriott Hotel in Cairo would be a good choice. It is an old palace that has been rennovated to be a luxurious
