I stayed at the Isis Hotel in Cairo with my two daughters in August, 2008. It was everything that we hoped for. We were in the southeast corner triple room. Being so high it was quiet and the view was terrific. I think we had one of the best views of the Citadel in the city! We could also see the Nile from our room. The views from the lobby/breakfast room were great of the Nile (I think I even saw the Great Pyramid one clear evening across the river in the southwest). The breezes up there were very refreshing and surprising given how hot it was down on the street that time of year. The location was good. We were near the subway and a short walk from the Nile Cornish for evening cruises. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They arranged a reasonably priced pyramid tour (the owner even called our driver while on the tour to check with me on how things were going). We stayed for 3 nights so there was free airport pickup, which was there on time with a good sign. It was nice to see given some of the stories that I had heard. After our stay in Cairo we went by the sleeping train to Luxor. The hotel let us store our bag until our departure time and arranged for our transportation to the train station (even complimentary…THANK YOU). Upon returning to Cairo for our flight out of Egypt, they let us freshen up at the hotel when we picked up our bags and had the airport taxi arranged. It was very nice and truly did feel like a home away from home. It was really a excellant hotel with outstanding service. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
wonderful staff made us feel very welcome. very hospitable and generous a lot of breakfast provided. central location. clean. large rooms. family atmosphere. when family member was sick staff went out of way to help and look after. mohammed ali exceptional manager and overall excellent.
not as good as previously rated, compared with the hotels nearby, you have worse breakfast, greedy manger, expensive price.
