Nice hotel, nice area”
Situated on the edge of Ard El Golf in Heliopolis, which is a charming neighborhood to walk round in, very Cairene, but at the same time upscale, with many grand old villas – some of them spectacularly renovated. Across the busy facing street of al Ouroba begins the heart of the old neighborhood of Heliopolis, one of the nicest in Cairo. (Trivia note: the hotel is facing the villa once owned by Yasser Arafat on Orouba St.) A very short walk or taxi ride away is Midan Korba (where one of the presidential palaces is located), and Midan Roxy, the two main squares of central Heliopolis. The neighborhood is far from the center of town, but if you want a nice hotel in a lovely residential Cairene neighborhood near, but not right next to the airport, this one is for you.
Meridien Heliopolis - Good Airport Hotel Option”
The Meridien Heliopolis is an excellent option if you need to be the near airport. It is modern, clean, has all amenities, and a helpful staff. There's a free shuttle to the airport on the hour. It is in a residential neighborhood, though, so there's nothing to do outside of the hotel.
Business meetings in Cairo”
Shuttle service to/from the airport, a ten-minute drive away. Ample lounge area for meetings. Rooms, facing the back of the hotel, serviceable and quiet. Workout area small but satisfactory. The dining is overpriced both for breakfast and dinner but satisfactory for those with budget. I stay there because it avoids Cairo traffic and because my meetings are with companies in Heliopolis. It does need a significant face lift very soon!
Meridian Heliopolis Hotel”
Hotel is in a good location on one of the main streets of Heliopolis. If you want to walk after a day's work it is possible as the sidewalks are decent along the street. Hotel breakfast is rich in choice and makes for a good start to the day. Night service is nice as they supply you with a bottle of water which always comes in handy.
Been staying here for years, which is why I return. Facilities and rooms are in need of a full makeover, which isn't likely to happen in Egypt's current economic environment. Good shuttle service to and from the airport. Breakfast service pricey and falling off in quality. It's an option but hardly the only one in Heliopolis.

Good Hotel, ”
Good stay and nothing wrong.If you want to be in Heliopolis area it is a good hotel to stay at.
Would not rate it a five-star hotel”
This is a nice hotel except that it does not seem to deserve five stars. Being there for a business trip I had meetings in the nearby hotel which seem far better but only rated 4 stars. At Le Meridien staff is begging for tips at all times, even when it should be included already in the bill (like for in-room service, as written on their own documentation). Staff English is sometimes hard to understand. Paper documentation does not agree with staff directions like for in room safes. My room had a rusty and old bathtub, and the cleanliness was good but not excellent as expected from a five stars hotel. No one there, including at check-out, seemed interested to know if everything was ok, just asking why I did not use the mini bar (whose prices are without limits, where content is poor, and not corresponding to the list). So in short you can have a good stay but do not expect services up to par with an international 5 stars hotel.
One of the best hotels in town near the city center of Alexandria. Also there is free parking if you come by car. wifi internet is free in the room. For breakfast there is a lot of choice.
Stay in Meridien”
The receptionist are good and quick to check and allot the room without hiccups. I got a clean room, clean toilet and good bed. The room service on order was good and in time. The restaurant on ground floor was average, could be better particularly for the taste of food. The pool side restaurant was managed with less staff, slow to respond and below average quality of food. Billing was fast. I have no problem to go back to this hotel but would like to avoid dining on pool side restaurant.
not bad experience”
check in and check out was not fast due to limited number of employees at reception. room was specious and clean. staff were friendly. I faced a problem with internet connection and I needed to contact business center many times till they solved it
Great potential but not five-star”
The free shuttle bus back to the airport during business hrs is excellent, but difficult the other way. Taxi hire: do not use the hotel's, but simply walk out to the road and hail one. Close to airport. Had a refurbished room excellent, but staff and guests seem to smoke everywhere without worrying about the nonsmokers. The restaurant is open for breakfast until 10.30am - I arrived at 10am and was told it was closing already - the staff do not care! The staff are extremely keen to get tips off you for even the smallest inconvenience. Hotel far from metro and city - airport usage recommended only
OK hotel with costly food”
- It was ok... good staff behaviour - room was good, spacious - Bathroom was not good - Food is tasty but costly with less portions - Airport transfer is good facility
The best buisness hotel in Cairo”
Was very comfortable stay
Good hotel for business traveler Gym is so tiny
Good Hotel,Rooms Small”
The location of the hotel is very good..few good resturants to be added..>Rest all is fine
Dirty and dusty! Be aware of HIDDEN costs = the Agoda price calculation is incorrect! Breakfast is expensive and so-so... Proximity to the airport is good! Well, if you can afford; find a better solution!
Enjoyed staying at the hotel, nice and clean”
Pleasure to stay as it was nice and clean with good staff and good English talking skills
Good experience ”
A bit dated though
