My wife and I stayed at the Fairmont Cairo Nile City Center for 3 nights in the middle of June. It is a stunning hotel with beautiful rooms, excellent service and great food. The rooftop pool area is something very special about this hotel. You can swim and relax there until very late at night.
The rooms are stylish and the beds are very comfortable. It seems that this hotel can do anything you want. I needed an Egyptian sim card for my phone and the concierge set me up with a new line and minutes. They also arranged my tour of the pyramids.The food was excellent, but I would just be a little careful if you choose to have breakfast in the hotel. There was confusion with the price when we ordered breakfast. We went to the front desk and they waived the price of our entire breakfast. Also, we had lunch in another restaurant in the hotel and they charged about $8- for a liter of Evian water.
Also, on the first night I heard loud, bass heavy music coming from the rooftop pool area late at night. It did not bother my wife and I, but I imagine it could bother someone on a floor closer to the source. They need to get rid of this nonsense right away. It does fit in this class of hotel. These were just minor issues.
The hotel is located on the Nile River, but you will need about 10-15 minutes by taxi to reach the main attractions. This is not really a big deal at all.
The GT manager Amr is very professional and friendly. He gave us an upgrade on our room, which had a full view of the NIle with a balcony. We highly recommend this hotel. This was the best hotel experience we have ever had. A five star experience. We wanted to stay longer. This is a true five star hotel!
