We stayed at this hotel in November for 3 nights and were upgraded to the Fairmont Gold Club Floor. WOW WOW WOW!
The rooms were absolutely amazing. They had a wonderful view of the Nile and although you are on a pretty busy road, you did not hear any noise (the windows are double glazed). The urban chic decor was done perfect - there is not one thing that I could fault with the room or the hotel itself.
Complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea is included with Gold Club Floor rooms, and the Gold Club Lounge is a nice, open area where you can sit and read a book or just admire the views of the Nile. Breakfast was great, a good variety of hot and cold options.
Location in my opinion was also great. You were in a quiet location (there is only a very small shopping centre attached to the building but not what I would really call a shopping centre as there are not too many shops but there was Gloria Jeans). Traffic in Cairo is bad at any time, but it was still a short enough drive to the main city centre / Egyptian Museum.
The rooftop swimming pool was just what we needed - after travelling from Australia and arriving into Cairo at 3am local time, our first day was spent relaxing by the pool.
