With its famous rooftop pool – the perfect spot to watch the sun set over the Nile River and gaze out to The Great Pyramids at Giza– this property has been a popular feature on Cairo’s hospitality scene since opening in 1989. In November 2014, Bukhamseen Holding and InterContinental Hotel Group (IHG) took over the existing Sofitel Maadi Hotel site and rebranded it as the Holiday Inn Cairo Maadi. An extensive renovation programme will be completed by the end of 2017, which is a testament to Bukhamseen Holding’s commitment to IHG, the Holiday Inn brand and the growth of the Egyptian economy. The hotel is ideally located in the heart of the embassy district.
