The Kempinski was this perfect haven of calm and quiet after the chaos of the city and sightseeing. We upgraded to a 1-bedroom suite and it was totally worth it. We skipped the "Nile view" price....but still had a lovely view of the Nile, without the noise. Wins: Fabulous suite with two bathrooms and enormous tub. Comfy beds, beautiful rooms... More

We stayed in Madina Junior Suite and had also side view on Nile. Suite was extremely clean, well furnished, beige with modern green touches. 2 bathrooms, one with tube, one with shower, 2 built in closets, complimentary mini-bar, as well as coffee and tea service. Pool is small, but quiet, and it is oasis in a crowd city. Pool boy... More

Me and my family (3 of us) were at the Cairo Kempinski Nile hotel during the 2nd week of May for 3 nights. The hotel deserves its star rating. While booking there were many mails back and forth so the manager himself mailed me for my mobile number and made an international call to me so that I could clarify... More

great hotel, very luxurious. We loved it. The hotel staff always smiled and were very friendly, the pool area is beautiful, and the location is away from the touts you get in other locations, and just across the road from the Nile, and a small walk to Tahir Square. Thanks again to the friendly guy from the front desk area?... More

Through my 3 night stay in the Kempinski I found both the room and the location to be great. The concern I had was the level of service, which left me underwhelmed, particularly given the reviews I had read. One of the reasons I choose the Kempinski was the included wifi which would allow us to keep contact with the... More

We stayed at the Kempinski, Cairo for three nights earlier this month. What a wonderful experience! We checked in, and got a Deluxe room which overlooked the Nile. We were on the fourth floor and the room felt dark and too close to the noisy traffic. I asked for a room change, and we were promptly given a room on... More

My wife and I celebrated our 25th Wedding anniversary at the Kempinski hotel. We agreed that it was one of the best hotels we had stayed in.

I stayed 5 days at this hotel with my wife and found it really pleasant. The rooms, service, and facilities corresponds to a luxury hotel. Very comfortable in every aspect. Only would mention that the lobby is surprisingly small, but I didn't found it crowded at anytime although. There is a gorgeous swimming pool at the roof with amazing views... More

We booked the Kempinski after having a negative experience with another hotel made us determined not to go back there and having seen the great reviews of the Kempinski on Tripadvisor.

I stayed at this hotel on multiple occasions in 2011 on business. Unlike other Cairo hotels it is quite small and this is very much in its advantage - you feel completely insulated from the city outside unless you choose to go out onto the balcony or the pool deck. Also unlike other hotels in Cairo, all the facilities in... More
