We stayed in the Four Seasons for four nights on an Egypt holiday in June 2008.
Since our travel to date has been limited to the US and Western Europe, we were admittedly a bit intimidated by the city, and as such spent a great deal of time in the hotel as we acclimated to the surroundings. And what a hotel! It was difficult to leave sometimes, so sumptuous and comfortable was it.
Security around the hotel is tight: metal detectors, dogs that sniff the approaching cars, so safety is never an issue.
Location is pristine. It is situated across from the Nile which has lovely walks. It is a five minute walk from the Egyptian Museum, and is surrounded by banks and shops.
We had a room on the 26th floor facing the city. Beautiful view, and we could see fireworks at night. The room was pristine, enormous, and had a gorgeous bathroom with huge separate bathtub which I used daily. Unbelievable closet space and great one hour pressing service which comes in handy for all of the linen you brought to Egypt.
We used room service daily, and it always arrived hot and within 20-30 minutes. Minibar was well equipped and regularly filled. Turn down service gave us four free large bottled waters every night which we took on our excursions.
Internet was expensive (31.99/day) but worked perfectly and was wireless.
We were overwhelmed by the number of dining options in the hotel. There is a restaurant to suit every taste here and we sampled most of them. We never felt the need to venture out into Cairo to eat, which was a bit of a shame, but fine by us. My favorite was eating by the pool. Lovely light menu and gorgeous setting, especially in the late afternoon when the entire pool is shaded by the building. The pool itself is lovely. The chairs are oh-so-comfortable with thick mats and padding. The service on the pool deck was outstanding.
Hotel amenities were good. There was an ATM on site, so we could grab egyptian currency. We would have liked to find a sundry shop to buy sodas, snacks, and magazines. The book claimed they had one, but we never found it.
We couldn't find a single thing to fault at this hotel. We loved every moment that we stayed there, and hope that we will be able to return one day soon!
