The hotel met my expectations, it was good value for money. The hotel is located in a good location and near downtown area, it is very near to Tahrir square but it was safe and not dangerous. Everyone at hotel was nice and friendly, and quite helpful as well. Rooms are really clean and beds are comfortable. I think it...

I enjoyed the wonderful sunset time on the hotel roof. With a very nice food quality and friendly staff with a speedy service despite the crowded place at sunset time in Ramdan(Iftar) .The weather in august was surprisingly refreshing to the extent that we didn't want to leave.

This hotel met expectations as a typical Novotel property. Service all around was friendly and efficient. Included breakfast was very good, with large selection of food. Location is great - central to attractions without being too close to Tahrir Square, where demonstrations take place.

I've been here before and was just here in June and its gone downhill. I would stay here again- as long as the price remained below $60. It's simply not worth more than that. I have to be honest- its fine. There is nothing wrong with it, but its just got so much potential to be so excellent- and its...

Located in the upmarket area of Cairo with an awesome view of Nile, Novotel Cairo is indeed in a great location. Good rooms and good service and good breakfast. We had a lovely time waking along the river and trying some awesome local restaurants suggested by the Novotel staff. The national museum is also at walking distance from the hotel....

Typical Novotel standards - food available 24 hours and good to eat. In possibly the only remotely pleasant part of Cairo and on the riverside. Unfortunately there are a huge number of pleasure boats at night vying for who can be loudest and sleep can be difficult until well in to the night. This probably applies to all hotels on...

The main problem for this hotel is the location. The first room I had overlooked the Nile which although picturesque does not help for a relaxing stay. As soon as dusk falls the neon party boats fill up the river blasting out music that can be easily heard from the rooms. I then moved onto the other side of the...

This Novotel is modern, clean, well situated BUT it should be made clear to guests booking that the hotel is DRY , i.e. does not serve alcohol - of course it is the hotels prerogative, however it really should be pointed out as after a long, hot working day in Cairo I like a cold beer or two in the...
