“Impressive for Cairo”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Very new hotel that matches the five star properties in Asia. Nice bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, good location right next to a mall with a Starbucks. Good breakfast buffet and a nice rooftop pool. It was such a treat to return after a day of very tiring sightseeing in Cairo, which is dirty and noisy. I doubt there's a better hotel in Cairo. Make sure you sign on the the Fairmont points program (which is free) as that gets you free wifi.

We stayed here for 5 nights and can't complain about anything.
The nileview from the room was absolutely fantastic. Rooms always very clean and nicely decorated.
Staff at breakfast area was very helpful and friendly. They were very awake and took our dirty plates away after a few seconds.
Also reception staff was professional.
I would however not recomend to take the overpriced tours that the hotel offers to the pyramids, etc. Just get a driver with van (50$/day) and an egyptologist (50$/day) from any travel agency.

I stayed here a couple of nights. Omnia was great at checking us in. We had a room in the 11th floor. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was really nice, with bathtub and rain shower. There were some minor stains in the bathroom, but housekeeping problems seemed to be consistent throughout Egypt (at least in the hotels we stayed at). There was also an issue with the bathtub (got clogged), but they came to fix it right away. Service was very good in general. Regarding location, it was not close to anything touristy, which we liked because we were not close to the protests. Breakfast was amazing, omelette, pancake and waffle stations, fresh juices (strawberry, mango, orange), great selection of pastries...

We had dinner at the Saigon restaurant (Asian), very good but not cheap (100USD for one appetizer, two main courses, one dessert, one wine glass). The Saigon restaurant has a sushi bar too, but we did not try it. The hotel has another two restaurants, an Egyptian one and a 'California inspired' one, did not try those.

There is an HSBC in the hotel to exchange money but it was closed at 4:45pm even though the sign there said it was open until 5pm.

I still cannot understand how hotels can get away with this, but there is no free Internet anywhere in the hotel and it is very expensive. For this reason alone I would look for another hotel next time, which is a shame because I really liked the hotel.

The Fairmont Cairo Nile Hotel is directly located next to Nile River. Easy to access from the airport. Just around 45 min drive. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Rooms are spaceous and very well equiped. Would again stay there.

Was here as part of a tour but normally I stay in much less upscale places. The staff is ready and quick to help in whatever way they can. The room was beautiful and the bed maybe the most comfortable I have ever slept in. A rooftop pool is romantic with staff and bar there though it closes at dusk. There are complimentary hors d'oeuvres in the afternoon in the chic lobby/bar area. Breakfast buffet is beyond belief in its offerings of American and Egyptian bounty from fruits and pastries of every description to honeycomb, omelettes, chicken sausage and items I can't name and some I don't know what they were beyond being delicious. And the juices! Fresh strawberry, orange and mango juice were among them. Lebanese restaurant was good and interesting for dinner. It's open air which is good with the smoking (there are hookahs).
The only downside if you can afford the price of the hotel is its location. Though on the Nile River it's in a poor area. It is not inviting to walk out onto the street. Security is extremely professional, classy and tight tight for the hotel and the attached mall that has restaurants, shops, bank and a cineplex movie theater.

I stayed here several nights on an Egyptian trip . The room I had was a Nile river view which was nice . I went to the roof on a clear evening and got some pictures of the pyramids in the distance. It had several choices of restaurants and the breakfast buffet was very good . The only drawback I could see was location , there isn't anything close by .

We stayed here over the summer and absolutely loved it! I have been to many '5 star' hotels and this is by far one of the best that I have seen. From the exemplary service, to the scrumptious breakfast to the professional and wonderful staff everything was as it should be. Any small request was dealt with efficiently and with no fuss. They accommodated for early check in and upgraded us to a nile view room. The room was very comfortable and clean The look of the hotel was very classy and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. I am a very nitpicky type of person when it comes to hotels and working in retail customer service is something that is drummed into us 24/7 - so for me to be satisfied takes a lot. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. If I had to make a negative comment is that there are no nice restaurants near by/ walking distance although taxis journeys were not that long and if you know the price of where you are going is relatively reasonable.
