“Not what I expected...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

When staying on a high category hotel, you expect premium service. We called the Butler to fix the "shower door" if you can call it a door because the water was running out leaving the whole floor wet. They didn't care and therefore we had to dry and clean the bathroom floor by ourselves two times.

Bad service!!!

Stayed March 2014, traveled as a couple

I cannot rave enough about this fabulous hotel. The rooms are stunning and the beds incredibly soft. The location is fabulous sitting right on the Nile River with gorgeous night time views. The in house restaurant is tasteful and a beautiful jazz lounge is part of the set up. An amazing value for the money in any case. Must stay! Also - FREE WIFI !!

I was there in 21st of Feb 2014 for one night and I decided to stay after having a very good dinner at the international restaurant with a very helpful stuff.

I am searching for all its branches in all over the world to be my first choice wherever I travel.
Really we had a very good and kind service in this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better Nile view and rooms No. 5 in each floor from the 6th is the best

I spent couple of days with my family. The service is really excellent. Chef Said in the Italian restaurant is a role model. Room is very nice. Kids will have nothing to do except the pool. The location is very convenient in downtown and security is super. We had a promotional package but not all the stuff is aware of the detail so we have to explain over and over. Breakfast is very nice with quiet some healthy choices.

Room Tip: Nile view is a good option and higher floors

I have been very impressed by hospitality and facilities in this particular boutique hotel. Location is very good too. It's very easy to get to any sights like Egyptian Museum, Citadel, Coptic City, Giza etc.

This is just a wow hotel... Not sure if I found this hotel to be great because I didn't expect it, but well located with great service. I loved this 5 star hotel. Book early and ask for their early booking deal.

This is now my 6th visit to the Kempinski Nile and I have stayed in other 4 and 5 star hotels here over the last 4 years. But the service and attention to detail here is just second to none. The staff are incredibly polite and helpful, absolutely nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are excellent, the beds are probably the most comfortable ever (sorry Premier Inn!!) and the butler service is fantastic. Special mention must go to Shady who manages the Jazz Bar on the 10th floor with fantastic views over Cairo. He is really working hard to bring in non-resident guest with events like Blueberry Mojito (yes, you read it correctly) and big band evenings. If you come to Cairo, you must stay here.

Room Tip: Medina Deluxe Rooms or Junior Suites are really good value. If you have a bigger budget then a Nile...
