4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is one of my favorite hotels in Cairo. Beautiful and historic. The location is perfect- you can find a lot of things within a walking distance. As this was a trip for leisure, with the purpose of relaxing, I spent a lot of time at the property, with its own gym, swimming pool, garden and lobby. However, I have a few comments: 1) the waiting staff at Omar cafe was amazing. I’m sure management reads reviews, so I want to give a shout-out to Mohamed, Mahmoud, Marwa and chef Abdulmenem. It’s the little things and these people were attentive with smiles on their faces. 2) it was odd to me that the hotel doesn’t do much to rowdy guests. I hope this can be fixed in the future. 3) room service staff are great, helpful and friendly. However, and when it comes to cleanliness, I want to point out that the carpets need an update 😅

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
What happened to the glamorous Zamalek Marriott? The check-in was painfully slow and the area littered with left water bottles and waste left by checking customers queuing. The suite furniture and it’s carpents I stayed at were beaten up and will need replacement. Breakfast remains goodbye. Saraya steak house served low quality meat and is not recommended. restaurant food quality have all decreased in quality. Very disappointing. Perhaps it is the economy? But certainly it will take a facelift, renovations and attention to details of services to bring it back to what it was. 3/5.

Amazingly beautiful Property, low class young guests sexually harassing every woman that passes by, poor oversight by Hotel staff and management, lots of prostitutes, not suitable for families at all.

Not suitable Properly for Families, lot of unethical male guests, and prostitutes. I was subjected to sexual harassment everywhere I walked in this male property. Pool area is the worst. Uncivilized unmonitored. Will never stay here again and don’t recommend this property unless you’re looking for prostitution.

The Spot for sexual harassment don’t bring your family here, Hotel customers mostly from Gulf Countries are trashy sexual predators. My wife and daughter were subjected to sexual harassment everywhere in the Hotel. Extremely poor management, HR manager should be fired. If you’re used to real 5 Stars Hotel this one barely is a 3. The Only positive thing is the property is beautiful.
