Loved the large room size, Nile view, clean bathroom and a comfortable bed. The best part about this hotel is its staff. Excellent service, this hotel has a staff with a great sense of humour yet very hospitable. The souvenir shop in the hotel is worth a visit. The hotel itself is housed by many restaurants of different cuisines...the one... More

Really enjoyed the restaurant at the Nile Hotel and the first floor shopping. Husband and I, being typical tourists, couldn't resist ordering cartouches with our names on the front and back - it was nice not to have to travel all over to get this done. The breakfast buffet was really wonderful and we had a great time people watching... More

I checked into this hotel last minute after returning from a Nile Cruise. I ended up with a double room on the business floor. The rooftop bar was a relief to visit after a harrowing day. The staff was very pleasant, and the business center was very convenient. The breakfast was ample. The hotel connects to the Museum and stores,... More

The best aspects - Fantastic Nile view - Especially if you are in Nile facing (of course if u love sun in the afternoons) or in the left corners in the high floors with the swimming pool view. The Gym is good. The Swimming pool is fantastic for the family... More

This is a fairly old hotel and has definitely seen better days. Having said that, the hotel is still in fairly good condition. The lobby is large and well appointed, the restaurant at the top of the hotel where breakfast is served is beautiful and overlooks the Nile. The breakfast offers a wide variety of food and is very good,... More

This used to be one of the top hotels in Cairo. The location is second to none. Great views over the Nile river, 50 yards from the Egyptian Museum, and Taylor Square, right in the middle of Cairo, you can even walk to Cairo Tower from the Nile. However, like the decrepit Egyptian Museum (run down like the whole country),... More

We stayed at the Nile Hotel for 2 nights at the end of a tour of Egypt. After the other hotels we had stayed at, the Nile is paradise.
