After doing a tour of Egypt, I stayed at this hotel for one night before catching an early morning flight out of Cairo. I read many Cairo hotel reviews and chose Fairmont Towers Heliopolis for its close proximity to the airport, the reviews and the excellent price I found on a hotel booking website.
I arrived in the morning and was able to check in. Though if a room was not available I'm sure I would not have a problem killing time in the hotel's large lobby. There are restaurants and seating areas that would have made it easy to spend time till a room was available.
I was given a deluxe room on the 3rd floor with a view of the pool and was very impressed with the size of the room, its decor and amenities. The images on the Fairmont website provide a true likeness of the room and hotel itself. The king-sized bed was the most comfortable I`ve had and there was far more space & seating than I could possibly use, with a couch, a desk and two armchairs. The tv had a good variety, including local, english, news, movie and music channels.
But I was most pleased with the washroom. It`s size is large enough for a separate tub (which had more than enough space, I thought), a large water closet and shower room. The contemporary design of the washroom reminded me of a luxury spa -- for eg. the bathroom ceramics (sink, tub, &c.) were Villeroy & Boch.
I used Room Service and my order arrived within 30min. Much attention was put towards with the table setup to make the setting perfect. Though unfortunately the food was cooler than I would have preferred. A second call needed to be made to Room Service to have the table-tray taken away.
Check out was easy and the front desk advised me that there was a free shuttle to the airport, which I wasn`t aware of, but it was fast and efficient.
I expect a high level of service and accomodation from all Fairmont hotels, but Fairmont Towers Heliopolis went beyond my expectations.
