I stayed in the Scheherezade in 1975, and it was modern, clean and light, with interior fittings rather like a Western-style motel, light wooden veneers and a squeaky clean floor. There was a sun-filled restaurant upstairs on a mezzanine floor, where you could look out at the eucalypts along the Nile and drink coffee. Lots of wonderful ambience, which local... More

I just want to share my review now even though 1 year already passed since i went to Cairo to tell you like the gentlemen above (NEVER EVER GO TO THAT HOTEL). The reasons for that warning are the following: 1- It is for sure not a 4 stars hotel as they claim. My classification for it will take it... More

This hotel is brilliantly situated along the bank of the Nile and has in its day been a grand and palacial place, however on my visit it was in a state of decaying grandeur, but an unforgetable experience non the less. Staff were polite, especially the lift attendants who risk their lives daily in the lifts with no doors! Food... More

Before paying for the 10 days we requested to see the rooms and our request was denied. We were told the second we pay the full amount we can see the... More

I stayed with 3 friends in this hotel. It is few minutes from the down town, so this saved us taxi hussles and so. We demanded nile view rooms which had an amazing view. I think service & staff are generally ok. I loved the night club with a beautiful belly dancer there!

I travel a lot, and this has to be one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in. What a pity, it could be so nice, with that Nileside position. Everything is filthy, breakfast is terrible, there were cockroaches crawling over the tablecloth in the restaurant. I feel sorry for the staff who work in these conditions. You can find... More

horrible. so dirty, no ac, human hair all over, floor not swipped, water in bath tab didn't drain, dirty bads and sheets. staff was very friendly, but that's the only positive thing to say about shahrazad. do not go there unless all you're looking for is a roof above your head and a smiling receptionist.
