Excellent hotel in great location. Try all the restaurants as they are excellent. I think this is the best hotel in the area as it is quiet and right on the Nile. Only downside was noises party boats, mostly empty, with music all night.
I have stayed at this hotel before, and it always delivers. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed rather than bustling, but there is plenty of excitement to be had for the more intrepid travelers. The staff are EXTREMELY courteous and professional, often going out of their way to help. The restaurants are staffed by world-class cooks, and there are several terrace cafes where you can dine and puff on a shisha as you gaze over the Nile.
Very well located, on the Nile and very good restaurants in the hotel. Don´t forget to go around in the hotel to see some old ladies making egiptian bread in a very rustic and antik way, very delicious. If one day I´ll came back to Cairo, I will stay at Grand Hyatt Cairo for sure. Very convenient.

Really excellent location and the free parking is a real bonus! The buffet breakfast is excellent and the roof top terrace has the most fantastic views. Have stayed in far more expensive hotels with out the benefits of this hotel. Only down side is the pool is vey small but at least it has one. Would recommend this hotel and will return.
Excellent property. The hotel is very nice with many amenities. Several different restaurants to choose from with various menus and all very good 5 star Hilton quality food. It is built so that all rooms overlook the Nile River. Rooms are very clean and comfortable and the housekeeping staff are very accommodating. Hotel has a pool and a spa with a Thai masseuse available. A few clubs with dancing on weekends at the night club and a small casino in the basement. Security on the property and in and out of the property is also very good. We felt very comfortable throughout our stay. They do not nickel and dime you to death like so many other hotels nowadays. But then again, I am partial to the Hilton chain of hotels. The concierge on the other hand leaves much to be desired. It is the only reason I gave the staff four stars instead of five. He stands next to the check in desk. Most of the time I found no one there. Even when we called they were hard to get ahold of. They provided very little valuable input to help with local sights. There are no brochures. They printed pages of current local tours which we used as guides. We did their Dinner Cruise which was excellent. There is another desk next to the front door, for tours from an outside company that provides cars, taxis and tours, but they are more expensive. The concierge should have a nice desk with comfortable chairs for guests to sit in, plenty of accessible or available information, a good staff, smiles and patience.
The hotel is beautiful and save. It has a Mall in front of that came out very handy.
The beds are supper comfortable so is the AC, very needed in Egypt. One minute walk to the Egyptian museum and tons of cheap taxis in front of the Hotel. Very nice.
