Upscale, comportable room with good security. Dinner at the hotel restaurant was mediocre, breakfast buffet good. The attached "Mall" had Starbucks, movie theater, and pharmacy, but not much for shopping. Nothing else close by. Free Wifi in lobby only.

We stayed three nights in this hotel and completely enjoyed our stay. We had a large king bed room on the 11th floor with a view of the Nile. The bed was luxurious with wonderful pillows and sheets. The bathroom was large and had both a bidet and a separate tub and shower. The room had good air conditioning and was very quiet. The staff was lovely and spoke very good english. To come into the hotel you must pass through security and a metal detector. The breakfast buffet included in our stay was extensive and included western, middle eastern and asian breakfast items. It had both an omelet and a pancake station as well as hot cinnamon rolls with lots of topping options. There were several dining options in the hotel including both a western and an asian restaurant. You could also dine in the Champagne Bar or they had an extensive room service menu. There was a bank in the lower lobby so exchanging money or using the ATM was no problem. All in all, a perfect stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a view of the Nile.

We stayed 3 days at the hotel at the beginning and end of the tour. On top of being a very nice place, the security was comforting. I read another review of this hotel that said on the pool floor you could see the pyramids. We went up to the floor and told the receptionist that we wanted to see the pyramids. She said, "Oh they are too far away from here. Maybe you are thinking of the other Fairmont Hotel. Meanwhile, my husband went to talk to one of the men working there. He pointed out the window, and in the distance you could see a pyramid in the haze! We showed it to the receptionist, and we all had a laugh over the fact that she was unaware of it. I asked her how long she had worked there, and told her the next time someone asked, she would know how to show them. :-)

The Fairmont Nile City is new, clean and very secure. Bomb dogs, guards and metal detectors may be off putting to some but in today's world we will call them amenities. The staff are gracious and friendly.
The hotels restraints are excellent as well. After a hot day of sight seeing, and given the apocalyptic traffic, settling in can be a pleasure. The Egyptian roof top restaurant has it all, hookahs, mezza plates and a band and singer with traditional offerings.

The helpful staff found me an android phone charger, quickly and with a smile, at a reasonable price.

Well done
