Reviewed 12 May 2011

We stayed at this hotel a couple of weeks after the uprising in Cairo had resolved. It is beautiful and the staff were very obliging and friendly. The room was lovely and the beds extremely comfortable with sheets that were actually crisp! Unfortunately the pool was closed when we went to look at it as the hours of operation were reduced due to the low occupancy at the time, and the unpleasant odour from the Nile kept us off our balcony, but the food was delicious and we enjoyed one meal in the lounge with cocktails and another with excellent room service. The hotel is in the middle of Cairo but came through the unrest relatively unscathed, in large part due to its dedicated staff. Cairo is exciting and the hotel itself is exotic and lovely, right in the heart of the city. The hotel arranged for our tour guide, who was a young woman who did an excellent job of taking us to the sights, which we enjoyed even more since there was hardly any one else there. Great time to visit Egypt in my opinion, and highly recommend this hotel for a stay in Cairo.

Room Tip: We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Nile.

We stayed at this hotel in December for 4 nights and returned for a further night before departing Egypt. The staff were fabulous - kind, caring, efficient and helpful. The rooms are lovely, spacious, spotlessly clean and so comfortable with stunning bathrooms . Possibly the only mild negative is that it's not particularly good for walking anywhere with no good restaurants/cafes etc. nearby. However, don't let this put you off staying here, just jump in a taxi, as we did. We love Cairo and this hotel was a definite highlight - a real treat! I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Cairo.

My husband and I went to Egypt for our honeymoon and booked Fairmont over the internet. The room and service exceeded our expectation and the website does not do justice to this hotel!!

We were upgraded to the Club level, and the staff gave us a surprise for our honeymoon stay...they decorated our room with candles and flower petals and left mocktails , a cake and card for us!! The service was splendid, and the room had a beautfiul view of the Nile. The bed was most comfortable and the bathroom was luxurious with different choices of bath oils.

Breakfast, high tea and night cap at the Club Floor are the works! A must stay for honey-mooners!!! We even had dinner at their french/vietnamese restaurant which was an enjoyable experience.

To make it very short: One of the best business hotels I ever stayed in. Excellent rooms, stunning views (if you get Nile-view), excellent food and service and very helpful and competent staff.
Cant add anything more except my utmost satisfaction with my stays there!

Room Tip: nile-view!

I have been in Egypt for easter week with my family and we have spent the last night in Cairo at Fairmont Nile City choosing the special service called "Fairmont Gold" at a little difference in price towards normal rooms.
When we arrived we were accompained directly to the private lounge to make the check-in, being offered juices and coffee and we were accompained directly to our rooms.
Rooms were spacious and confortable and baths were all marble, but the most exciting issue was that as soon I dropped the telephone I was called by name and all the staff was at my disposition.
Fairmont Gold guests have access to a private lounge with Nile view and complementary snacks and beverages at any time during day or night.
The hotel is very clean and has a floor dedicated to a spa and jim, with rooms dedicated to relax after Cairo's awsome traffic.
The swimming pool is on the top of the building and as soon as my children arrived they were offered an ice cream while swimming.
We had dinner in the Napa Grill Restaurant and we enjoied a very good tenderloin steak at a reasonable price.
In the Lower Lobby there were works in progress but there was no disturb for guests.
I think that at this moment Fairmont is the best value worth hotel in Cairo.

We were quite apprehensive to go to Cairo during the political unrest. We didn't need to worry. The hotel staff at Fairmont helped us to feel secure and safe, they got out of their way to the extend of accompanying us (Mohamed Al Aziz) to the Egyptian Museum as the act of good will.
The hotel itself has stunning views on the Nile, the rooms are spacious, with loads of lights for reading, etc. The bed was one of the most comfortable ones I've ever slept in. The rooms were totally insulated from the external noise or light, I am a light sleeper, so all of that enhanced the quality of my sleep immensely.
Everything was immaculately clean, stylish and thought through.
I can't praise enough the staff! Great stay overall, loved it

I just gave three stars because it is what you could expect from the price you paid for this hotel. But this doesn't take away the credit to the staff which are always courteous and efficient. The location is very good and it was easy to catch a taxi to explore the city. The business centre facility is not great and the wireless is not free.

The room has shown some wear and tear although it is still acceptable. I agree with the previous reviewer that said something about the water pressure in the bathroom. The shower room is also not well designed as the water could not be drained completely so guest should be careful walking around the area.

The newly opened spa was fantastic and the price was reasonable. The treatment rooms have fantastic view of Cairo.

So to be honest, I might not want to come back to the hotel again.
