“Simply Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

After three stays, I can easily qualify this hotel as one of the finest in the world. The service is world-class and it is obvious that the management recruits the best and invests well in training them. Everything is clockwork efficient.

There is always this incredible ambiance and social activity which makes it feel relevant and modern. This is seriously contrasted by a lavish classical interior and architecture that even a minimalist like me can highly appreciate.

The rooms are very clean and I was mostly impressed by the crisp white bedding and high hygiene.

The views from my room which overlooked the Nile on the 14th floor were spectacular.

Finally, the concierge Tamer was of tremendous help and resourcefulness

This is definitely a great haven in Cairo

Dear Claudioemiratey,

I am delighted to hear your experience went above your expectations. We have been implementing modern Egyptian contemporary artists, relevant music and events to our atmosphere which contrasts with our classical interior and architecture, like you said so it is great that a minimalist like you can appreciate it. I will be sure to pass the word on to Tamer at concierge I am sure he will greatly appreciate your comments.
We are greatly looking forward to having you stay with us again soon.

Sincerely,
Randy Shimabuku

Stayed for 3 nights while on a business trip. This hotel leaves nothing to be desired!
Sitting around the pool area at nights is very pleasing, and from the (higher level) rooms that go out to the west you can see the pyramids, if smog doesn't prevent that.
The food is good, and everything is extremely tidy.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
I would always choose this hotel again!

Room Tip: The higher the better. Rooms that go out to the west have pyramids view (if the smog allows it!).

Stayed for a week for work and though I didn't have time to enjoy it like a holiday, the hotel offers a great level of comfort, some luxury, an amazing pool / dining area, plus staff that are really amazing at their jobs - everyone seemed to know my name wherever I went! And genuinely they provide the best buffet breakfast i've ever seen anywhere. Corn flakes, mango yoghurt and fresh honeycomb, for instance. Worth it if you can afford it.

Have stayed here several times and a very good hotel. Quite central (by Nile in Maadi) and in a good location from a security perspective. Staff are really attentive and maintain Four Season standards despite the relatively low occupancy. Food is good and rooms are large. Gym is perfectly acceptable and pool is good and quiet.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the Nile

We've just come back from four nights in this hotel on a mixture of business and pleasure and it was fantastic. The service was impeccable and the attention to detail was fantastic. The pool area was very quiet and calming and the staff were very happy to help. The breakfast was excellent quality as was the buffet in the evening. The tea room on the third floor is delightful - try the African Nectar tea, delicious. I've seen a few comments on the rooms being a little dated, and yes it is not a recently built hotel so the rooms are not brand new but they still have amazing style, beautiful furniture and the bathroom was obviously very new and to a very high standard. The right side of the hotel has views over the Giza pyramids but is next to a road so unless you are high up there may be noise. We stayed on the other side overlooking the Nile and the pool which was splendid. We organised a trip to the Pyramids for half a day which was fantastic, the guide was excellent. All in all a fantastic hotel.
