  • Abdel Rahim Koueider omneya wrote: One of the best places I have ever been to, it is very quiet and beautiful place. This place is characterized by its desserts & ice cream beside that they serve nice pizza, croissant, and also fresh juices. There are tables inside and outside the shop, you can take your order wherever you prefer, its prices from moderate to expensive to fit every budget, so if you want to have a nice day at the end of the month you can go to Abdel Rahim Koueider.

Cafes and Coffee Shops

  • Villa 55 Restaurant & Cafe Mohamed Salah wrote: Villa 55 is yet another choice when you want to hangout in a nice place in Road 9 maadi. It is a cool place both in the morning when you can have a nice sausage and eggs breakfast or at night where you have a square looking pizza and smoke a shisha. I would also recommend lasagna...... What makes this place unique is the fact that you are sitting in the garden of a villa or in the terrace of the villa, they haven't changed much of the look and feel of the original villa 55 in road 9, actually this is what the place is named after. The place is only good when the weather is nice as it is open air. More >>

Playgrounds & Amusement Parks

  • Dream Park momo wrote: I love you so much because you are the only place in the world where I want to go when I want to have fun and spend a fantastic day cheering. All your games are fantastic and make me happy just seeing them. The rocket game is unbelievable and also the death train, wow. You have so many games that I can't finish them all. My family and I wait until a vacation day so that we can spend it at Dream Park. You are easy to reach. I am waiting for your new games, you are the best. More >>
  • Dream Park Mico wrote: It's the biggest fun park in Egypt. You can spend all the day in it without getting bored; I like to go to it with my friends from time to time to have fun & to change my routine. But the problem that it is getting very crowded in summer & vacations -:( More >>

Cinemas & Theaters

  • Golden Stars Cinema Mohamed Salah wrote: Well i think its the best cinema because it offers the best experience. first no one under 18 allowed... So there are no kids in the cinema! AMAZING!! The seats are so comfortable and the spacing between them is more than enough even for a chubby person... I have to say that if i want to go to cinema i don't just check for the movie names, i check for the movies that are being displayed in the golden stars cinema. More >>
  • Stars Cinema newtocairo wrote: My husband and I enjoy going to Stars Cinema Friday mornings, as the theater is empty. If you are like me and don’t like crowds, I recommend the 10:15 or 11:00am VIP showings. A VIP ticket is about 100 LE and you can select your own seat (only around 30 seats) and relax in a comfortable leather recliner! You can order lunch or dinner from a special menu and have it delivered to your seat while enjoying your movie. There is also a concession stand with popcorn and candy. The staff always prepares a fresh batch for us and it tastes just like it does in the states. Also, the bathrooms are very clean and modern. Make sure to bring a jacket, as the theater is freezing!

Fitness Centers

  • Worlds Gym besso wrote: I work out there...it is awesome....They offer a perfect atmosphere for exercising...i just hope if they open much earlier so people can go to practice before work. More >>
  • Gold's Gym fido wrote: I've been exercising at Gold's in Maadi since 1998, so fair to say it's a pretty good gym. The weight lifting equipment is good and relatively new. The music is always dependent on the front desk clerk's personal taste though ... in my case i sometimes have to listen to hip hop or rave music at 6 AM... not really my thing at 6 AM - management should agree on an appropriate type / selection of music for all times of the day and make certain that staff stick to their rules. The cardio equipment is on the older side and is not well maintained and the cardio built in TV screens are notoriously renown for not working ... when you step onto a cardio machine you never know what to expect ... screen may be burnt, volume not working, the channel you like to watch everyday is all of a sudden gone and nobody seems to understand how the satellite system works. They open very early and close very late which is good. On a final note, they could learn something about customer service; i go early in the morning and there are extra rooms such as the circuit room which i would like to use and when i asked if i could, the front desk clerk said "no". So i said "well why not?" so he said "because it's not open in the morning" and i replied "well i pay the same fees as others and i would like to use it too" ... anyway, a pointless discussion which did nothing other than irritate the heck out of me. In the end the clerk said "if you want to complain, write a complaint". More >>

Spas

  • Mandara Spa Marie Lou wrote: One day suffering from a case of “Pharaonic Phatigue “I decide to pay a visit to the Mandara Spa in the Marriott Hotel. Relaxation starts when you step in to the foyer where you are offered a tray containing tea, a warm scented towel to refresh yourself and the list of treatments to choose from. The decor is tasteful Asian, the lights are dim, and a lovely citrusy fragrance and soothing music waft in the air. Even under the closest scrutiny what is most remarkable about the spa is the cleanliness, it is spotless. Once you have picked out your choice of treatment an attendant escorts you to a changing and shower room, then to the area where it will be administered. The same serene, tasteful decor and outstanding cleanliness is present all over the spa. I had a Moroccan bath and a rejuvenating facial both executed by a tiny Asian technician with hands surprisingly strong when giving a body massage and as light as butterflies when working on facials. The experience was a vacation within a vacation and worth every penny. Always best to call ahead to make an appointment and specify what you want done so they can set up and be ready for you when you arrive. More >>
  • Mandara Spa Family man wrote: Update to my previous review; I recently went again to Mandara spa and the place itself as well as the massage is still one of the best in Egypt. I had a 90 minutes sports massage and the massage really went deep into my knots and I felt refreshed and relaxed afterwards. The lady was really great. However the small things often make a big difference and the towels and bathrobes smelled really bad and even after exchanging them the replacement also smelt really bad. The very nice Thai lady who brought us the towels smelled them herself and the face she made when she smelled them said it all. I almost laughed. She explained that the laundry service of the hotel is not working properly!!!! WHAT? I wonder what they do with all their sheets. Not a nice thought. Besides that you take of (almost) all of your clothes to get a massage and then you walk to the massage room from your locker room. They used to have the one time slippers that all 5 star hotels have in their rooms but this time they had a pair of plastic slippers that really looked as if they had been worn by a construction worker for years. No way am I going to put my feet in those. I guess the times are hard and they need to save where they can but saving on towels and slippers is not the right place. It really ruins the whole mood.

Doctors

  • Dr. Hisham Atta Family man wrote: I sprained my back during a shoulder workout with the result that I was bed ridden. Constant pain and whenever I moved my neck a shooting pain flared up through my neck and down my back and into my arm. You realize how often you actually move your neck when it hurts. Dr. Hisham Atta was recommended to me by a friend and I called him up and explained my situation. He was very helpful and I set an appointment the same day only a few hours later. He was relatively punctual and he even called me on my mobile to explain that the reason he was late (20 minutes) was that there had been an accident on the Corniche in Maadi and traffic was blocked up. The treatment took app 45 minutes and I left a different man. I wasnt 100% cured but at least I could move without constant pain. His clinic is on the 16th floor of Maadi Hotel and parking around this area is very easy. Dr. Hisham speaks fluent English and has several educational certificates from the US. He specializes in sports injuries and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need for help in that regard. More >>
  • ODC - Osman Dental Clinic Family man wrote: I started going to Dr. Osman approximately 3 years ago because my daughter had a problem with an overbite. We went first to several other dentists and none of them instilled confidence in me or my daughter. Dr. Osman is great with kids and my daughter immediately fell at ease with him and so did we. After everything was done the invoice was less than 10% of what the other dentists had quoted. We were very (pleasantly) surprised. Since then we have been going regularly to ODC and I have recommended this place to my friends as well. In the clinic they also have the best dental hygienist in Egypt, Dr. Jackie. She has been cleaning my teeth for many years (she works in another dentist clinic as well) and now she is also cleaning the teeth of my wife and kids. Best dentist in Egypt. More >>
