I booked a VIP stay at this hotel a couple of months ago, and firstly I have to say I have very high standards and expectations as my own home, Carr Hall Castle in the UK won the Channel Five series ‘ I Own Britain’s Best Home’ a few years ago.
My stay at the Fairmont certainly lived up to my standards and exceeded my expectations.
I was met at the airport and whisked to the hotel without any hassle and before I knew it I was in my room, the Presidential Suite.
I like contemporary interiors and this suite was styled perfectly – it has a modern art deco feel , very sumptuous with a living room, dining area and kitchen. The bathroom was open plan and had amazing views of the river nile from the bath.
Staying in the Presidential Suite you are looked after by your own butler, who was fantastic. Very attentive and professional but friendly too.
I love the little extras hotels provide and this suite had a grand fruit bowl, bowls of sweets , the latest magazines and lots of little touches I love. It was great to come back to my suite after the staff had created some hilarious characters out of the towels and used sunglasses and fruit as props - I loved their sense of humour.
The rooftop swimming pool had stunning views of the city and the nile, it was a great place to drink a cocktail and watch the sunset.
There are several restaurants in the hotel –The pan asian restaurant Saigon was worth a visit and I also tried the Napa Grill – Californian cuisine, which was nice too.
The spa is superb here too – I had one of the best massages I’ve ever had anywhere in the world.
Walking up and down the banks of the nile just outside the hotel I felt extremely safe and the people were very friendly. This is not something I would have felt comfortable doing if I’d believed what the media are writing.
In summary a real plush hotel, with fantastic service in a perfect location. I’m definitely looking forward to staying here again.
