This place is amazing, the rooftop pool and the concierge service were definitely the highlights. As well as the room service.

A few tips:
1. The view from your room if your on the nile is amazing, but be prepared to deal with honking horns almost 24/7.
2. The butler service is almost TOO much, they are always calling and asking if you need anything.
3. Utilize the concierge service, they are good at what they do. They did everything that we asked, including a dinner on a feluca (spelling? sail boat on the nile). They also have access to some of the greatest guides that speak excellent english. We took one to the pyramids and the museum. He taught us a lot and kept the hagglers looking for tourists at bay.



Excellent cigar, food and liquor selection.

You must stay here, when we go back, we will! Enjoy!

For a three day stop over in Cairo we relied on trip advisor and everything "was as advertised" The Kempinski was a wonderful choice beds and sheets as well as overall decor and cleanliness as good as any hotel we have stayed in. For touring we used Walid from Mohammad Bahaa's group and the arrangements couldn't have been better or more accomodating. In a long day we say the Giza pyramids , the old city of Fostat the Coptic Church and Ben Ezra synagogue, visited a papyrus gallery where we bought some Egyptian themed papyrus art work, an essential oil store ( jasmine and papryrus flower were our chices), had a local lunch at a lunch counter , toured the museum and a dinner cruise on the nile with a dervish and belly dances a bit touristy but fun. This and an airport pick up and drop off for $335 and a genrous tip as we couldn't be happier with our day. Both Mohammad Bahaa and Walid Fazy especially as tour guide were great and the drive was a god send with AC after walking around in the heat.We felt completely safe in Cairo and would recommend the above hotel itinerary and tour guide for anyone who is doing a quick stay- we came on a Tuesday had a wonderful dinner at the Turkish Middle eastern restaurant at the hotel , spent all day Wed touring on Thurs back to the airport. The hotel was quietly elegant on a reasonable scale and they were nice enough to send a birthday cake for my wife. Thank you to the new person who checked us in- I forget her name unfortunately but wish her to receive mention. She accompanied us to our room from reception and check in .

The room service Egyptian breakfast was outstanding as well.

Room Tip: Had a nile view suite prepaid at under $200/night

My wife and I and my daughter and her husband spent three days in Egypt in January 2012 as part of a three week holiday through Europe and a stop over to see the pyramids in Cairo. The accomodation we chose in Cairo was the Kempinski Nile Hotel. I cannot say enough about this Hotel, luxurious, opulent, and nothing less than 1st Class. Everuthing about our stay was perfect, you could not fault the rooms, staff, restaurants, facilities in any way. From the roof top pool you have an inceridible view of the Nile River, or the view is just as spectacular from the Cigar Room and Bar. I cannot recommend this hotel enough. A stay at the Kempinski is the perfect compliment to a trip to see the pyramids. One more thing ticked of the bucket list.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cairo at the Kempinski. It was a beauiful hotel, with all the "fancies" (including those awesome Kempinski beds and pillows), and our room faced the Nile, but the most impressive thing about it was the service. We were treated like royalty (which we're not) by everyone we talked to at the hotel. Dinners in the Blue restaurant were wonderful, and service was unbeatable. My wife was a bit sick one night, and so I ordered a sandwhich from room service, and the server asked if my wife would like some home-made chicken soup, and he brought it to her without charge. Everything about the hotel was beyond expectations.

We have just returned from a 10 day stay at the Kempinski, long enough to know a hotel and its staff very well, and the verdict, perfect. Everything was as it should be for this class of hotel. The staff were unbelievably friendly, the food was glorious and the service superb. We booked this hotel on the strength of its ranking on Tripadviser and we quickly realised why the reviews are so good. It must be emphasised that we were not there for just a night or two. During our lengthy stay our regard for this establishment only grew. Do not hesitate, use this hotel in Cairo if possible,you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Nile view with balcony well worth the extra.
