Le Meridien Heliopolis
This property has extensive meetings facilities making it attractive for business travellers. With an international branding, leisure travellers will appreciate the choice of restaurants and the spa facility. The pool terrace is small in comparison with the size of the hotel but most guests are in meetings or sightseeing during the day. There is a popular late night club. A suitable choice for leisure travellers. Only limited facilities for children.
A high hedge separates the property from the main road. The gatehouse opens on to a tarmac driveway that runs in front of the property and on to the underground car park. The predominantly white facade has few windows facing the busy road with the majority facing either to the sides or over the central terrace within the u-shape building.
