After some shall we say "variable" standards of high star rated accommodation in Egypt, the Fairmont towers renews your faith that hotels can be seriously nice places to stay.
Yes it's vast. Yes it's a bit soulless and shopping mall (but what a mall). Yes it's an airport hotel. Yes you'll be arriving late and leaving early: my advice is try to spend a bit more than 9 hours there.
Brilliant room: immaculate. Huge bathroom with great toiletries. Loads of space. Comfy+++.
Excellent, if predictably pricey room service. Top notch burger (yes I know that's boring, but sometimes you need a burger and a beer and that's that).
Very helpful staff.
I'd consider using this as a base for Cairo and taking the hit of extra taxi fares if I go back.
The best 5 hours of sleep I've had in a hotel ever. Honest.
