“Beautiful Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My husband and I spent a few nights at this hotel after our wedding. The hotel was beautiful and our Nile view was amazing. They even left us a giant piece of delicious cake! The buffet breakfast was very nice. It wasn't huge, but the selection was nice with fruit, cereal, meats, cheeses and eggs. The beds were sooo comfortable and I wanted to take a pillow home with me.

We spent a night here again before I left Cairo and my only complaint is that that room smelled very strongly of mildew. It was awful. For that, I'm taking off a point. It's unfortunate because everything else was very nice.

This hotel does what it says and towers over the Nile. Walking North along the corniche takes you into the centre of the city - mainly for the Egyptian Museum. (King Tut is a must see!) The rooms are spacious, well upholstered and quiet. My balcony door did not lock. Check-in staff seemed a little perplexed about a midnight arrival, and fussed around a lot - when the idea of check in/check out is to relax and pamper the customer! The breakfast buffet overlooks the NIle, but is not really inspiring in its content or service. The hotel has great conference rooms, and seems to run this aspect well. The shopping arcade next door seemed deserted - a shame! I did not try the revolving restaurant up top - but I gathered it was pricey! If you want to feel part of Cairo and in touch with the Nile, this may be a good place to stay. The pool looked quite inviting but was empty.

We stayed at Grand Nile (ex Grand Hyatt) 5 days. Magical Nile view from our room and balcony.Very nice breakfast, don't forget to taste fresh juices of guava and strawberry. Rooms are clean but decoration is not so special. There are some restaurants like italian, indian, we liked Japanese most of all. Very nice pool and spa. We also visited Revolving restaurant at 41 floor. You can see all the city from there. Breathtaking view. Negative : They bind money from your credit card for the bar in the room upon arrival(100 euros for 2 persons).

Staying at the hotel was an absolute pleasure. Despite the fact that there are very few tourists in Cairo right now due to the political situation and consequentially also only a few guests at this hotel, all that the hotel has to offer was kept to extremely high standards. The rooms are excellent, with very good sound proofing. The whole hotel is nice and clean. There is an abundance of friendly staff that will provide you with everything you want and need.

Very good and pleasant hotel.

Fantastic lobby and swimmingpool. Pleasant staff, beautiful breakfast. Clean and fine rooms with balcony, beds to dream in. 'Dry hotel' where double espresso is the strongest you can buy.

Super service and very nice staff.

The premises is located in Garden City - a western styled area populated by diplomats, spouses and affluent offsprings.

We returned from a fantastic trip to egypt that started and ended at this wonderful hotel in Cairo. We spent in total 5 days there and were not disappointed. From the spectacular Nile view to the great food in the restaurants and the attentive service, we had no complaints. The hotel was virtually deserted of guests because of the troubles in Cairo, but we felt totally safe.

Room Tip: nile view a must
