Good mid-range well located hotel in Cairo
Good rooms, good location, good breakfast
This was our second stay at the Barcelo. This time we paid the extra for a "superior" room which was much larger and allowed for time in the room away from touring etc. The hotel is well positioned one third of the way to the Pyramids and about 20 minutes by taxi to the central. Main drawback is a very noisy street front but also means good taxi access. Excellent breakfast and good responsive staff.

Excellent mid-range hotel in Cairo
Good value, good rooms, excellent location
Good hotel with friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast, good rooms, reasonable (free) wifi connection and a good location mid-way between the pyramids and central Cairo. The street is noisy but it fades to the background eventually.

Not 4 star
Stay at the hotel was not the greatest. Staff were not friendly, there was no hot water kettle or cups in the room. The hotel was clean, however.

Great Hotel
friendly staff, pool, and amenities
I really like this hotel and would stay here again. The location is in a bad area but I think all of Cairo is like that. The staff and price of hotel definitely makes up for the poor surrounding. The rooms were great too. There were some low points too (like the water coming out brown (it was fixed on the spot) and the fridge not being stocked like other rooms) which I wouldn't expect in a 4 star hotel but this is minor for my overall experience.

great experience
staff food pool
The hotel was very nice, the staff were very attentive and assisted us with many things. The hotel taxi service was very professional albeit quite expensive for what you get. Along with the usual being taken to special places to see nice views and instead ending up in shops. Despite that overall I would return.

Great in Cairo / the Great Pyramids
(1) Professional and friendly staff from the General Manager to the Room attendants (2) Very comfortable King size bed (3) a Wonderful roof top pool and every monring = the best coffee!!!!
with my wife at the Barcelo Cairo Pyramids for 14 days was a "Dream Come True" . The hotel staff was very professional and friendly . They spoke English for my wife and me but they also spoke Arabic and French . We stayed for 14 days so we used the entire hotel. the Gym / Spa was great. the Pool was great . the Coffee cafe was great . the Formal Restaurant was great. And from the hotel , It is a 3 minute walk to Cairo Mall with a McDonald's . And with a 15 minute taxi, You can tour (1) the Great Pyramid of Giza (2) the Great Sphinx of Giza (3) the Egyptian Museum with the mummies and golden everything (4) the Cairo Zoo where you can feed the hippos . I had a great time in Egypt

Comfortable, relaxing stay.
Staff, Internet, Bathtub.
This hotel saved my life from a taxi driver from hell. Long story short, hailed a taxi from Downtown Cairo, and what was supposed to be a 15 min drive turned out to be a 2 hour "city tour". No amount of screaming at the taxi driver helped, and having a GPS in my hand was only a painful reminder of how much time i'm wasting. Only after the meter hit a 100 pounds was he willing to drop me off at my intended destination. Obviously, no way was I going to pay him for this unsolicited "city tour". I threw a 50 pound note at him and ran into the hotel, only to have him come after me. Thankfully, security at this hotel was first class stellar. As far as I know, while I was up in my room chillin' out, security had to argue with him for well over an hour. Mind you, this was no business of the hotel but they have gone beyond the call of duty and stood up for me. A kind gesture I will forever remember. Aside from that, the room (and bathroom) is worthy of a 4 star hotel. The hot water is consistent, the showerhead is pretty fresh, and the bathtub is clean. I went on to stay at a 5 star hotel the next day, but it was nowhere near Barcelo in terms of cleanliness and room condition. As for food, you have a good variety available at the restaurants. Portions are way too big for an Asian though. Only word of caution, if you go out at night so best to have your dinner in the hotel. They have shisha by the pool too, so that's a plus.
