If you love modern architecture and design, you'll be in your element at the Fairmont Towers. This is a truly modern, elegant and very exclusive 5 star hotel, complete with indoor plants and fountains, rivers running throughout the building, wooden bridges, decorative lighting, etc, not to mention some magnificent facilities and a highly personalised guest service. Despite the distance that separates it from the centre of Cairo, the Fairmont Towers (only 3 mi from the airport) is undoubtedly one of our favourite gems in the city.

    Location 4.0 /10

    Located in Heliopolis, a residential area just 3 mi from Cairo International Airport, this hotel is a real oasis of tranquillity, a far cry from the chaos of Cairo. It may be some way from the tourist attractions, but it does seem to be a very good option for spending the first or last couple of days of your stay in Cairo, particularly if your departure flight is early in the morning or your arrival is late in the evening, as you can spend the night just a few minutes from the airport.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    Whether you're visiting for business or for pleasure, the Fairmont Towers provides all its guests with an extremely high level of comfort to ensure a truly idyllic stay at the hotel. This establishment has 247 luxury guest rooms. Some of them have adjoining doors and are therefore ideal for families with children who want to enjoy the privacy of having two separate areas while at the same time keeping an eye on the children. There are two different types of rooms, some more modern, others more traditional. Overlooking the lobby, the modern (Deluxe) rooms are done out in a minimalist style, complete with leather armchairs and brightly-coloured modern furniture. The classic rooms overlook the street and are done out in a very smart, traditional style, combining classicism with modern touches. The colours used in these rooms are a little more low key than those in the Deluxe rooms, although both types of rooms have parquet flooring. Whatever the style of your room, it's sure to be very nicely decorated, with all the amenities and services you will need (including slippers and bathrobes) for a pleasant stay, with just the right balance of luxury and comfort. The bathrooms are very well designed and come with both a bathtub and a shower, and a separate toilet for greater privacy. The walls are tiled in light colours and hospitality products from prestigious London-based brand Miller Harris are provided.

    Overview 9.20 /10

    The hotel offers its guests a wide range of conveniences and personalised services that will be useful to both business travellers and tourists alike.

    The ultra-modern facade of the building is just a small taste of what you can expect inside the hotel, starting with the abundant little details in the very impressive entrance hall. Decorated with fountains and palm trees, with water snaking through the lobby, little wooden bridges and decorative lighting, it might, at times, feel like you're in the middle of a botanic garden rather than in the reception of a hotel. There's no denying that the decor in the entrance hall has a very unique charm!

    With regards to accommodation, the Fairmont Towers houses a total of 247 luxurious yet rather minimalist guest rooms. Every one of them is spacious and offers all the comfort you would expect of a 5 star hotel with these characteristics.

    This really is the perfect place for a luxurious and relaxing stay. One of the hotel's many facilities is a beautiful outdoor pool, complete with a thermostat that allows you to adjust the temperate of the water so the pool can also be used in winter, as well as a jacuzzi area. Meanwhile, in the Health Club, you'll find a gym equipped with modern exercise bikes where you can watch television on the built-in plasma screen as you pedal away.

    The main restaurant has a private area that functions by reservation only. The restaurant is quiet and the tables are very well spaced out, offering greater privacy to its diners. Lunch is served as an international buffet whilst dinner is à la carte. In addition, there is a pizza bar and a few other appealing bars and restaurants, where you can grab a snack and a drink in lively surroundings.

    The hotel also boasts a brand new modern business centre, complete with the latest generation computers, and 7 conference rooms.

    The hotel shares its facilities (swimming pool and restaurants) with its neighbouring sister hotel, the Fairmont Heliopolis, which doubles its appeal! As there is no bank in this building, for example, guests can use the one at the Fairmont Heliopolis, which is open 24 hours. The same goes for the tennis and squash courts, the swimming pool, and the restaurants, which guests at both hotels can use.

    Food and drink 8.95 /10

    The main restaurant has a private area that functions by reservation only. The restaurant is quiet and the tables are very well spaced out, offering greater privacy to its diners. Lunch is served as an international buffet whilst dinner is à la carte. There is also a pizza bar in addition to 2 other appealing bars/restaurants, where you can grab a snack and a drink in lively surroundings. The dining options here may seem somewhat limited, but the fact that guests have the option of dining at any of the 10 or so restaurants at the Fairmont Heliopolis (the neighbouring hotel of the same chain) greatly improves the situation. This is undoubtedly a good thing for guests at this hotel.

      This hotel, as its name suggests, consists of 2 towers. One of these has just been renovated and the second is currently closed for improvements but will be reopened shortly. The best things about the hotel are its location, right in the heart of Cairo, and its incredible view of the Nile. The advantage of staying in the middle of the city is that you will be close to many of the tourist activities.

      • Location 5.32

      The Intercontinental Pyramids Park Resort can boast having the largest pool in Cairo and there is no doubt you will greatly appreciate it, not to mention the hotel's proximity to the pyramids. The hotel has 420 spacious guest rooms distributed throughout one 2 storey building and one 3 storey building, but neither has a lift. Every room has a view of the garden, except for the 6 suites overlooking the pool. The common areas and amenities (reception, cafeteria, restaurant and pool) are all in good condition. The corridors, however, as well as some other parts of the hotel, have been a little neglected. This hotel is perfect for a short stay if you wish to unwind in a peaceful setting, but don't expect to find yourself in the city centre.

      The main assets of the Conrad Cairo are its strategic location and the superb views it offers over the Nile. This is a genuine 5 star hotel, located at the very heart of Cairo and just a stone's throw from the Egyptian Museum, as well as many other tourist attractions. It is a great destination for those who really want to get the most out of their time in Cairo. After a hard day's sightseeing around the city, what better than to relax in a peaceful and luxurious hotel which, in addition to its superb guest rooms and facilities, offers highly elegant surroundings and very tasteful decor.

      The Cairo Marriot is ideal for an unforgettable romantic getaway with your loved one. It consists of two towers and a palace, dating from 1869. This 5 star, sophisticated and luxurious hotel is ideally located at the heart of Cairo, about 15 minutes on foot from the Egyptian museum. The palace itself is full of history as it was once the home of French Emperor, Napolean III, and his wife, Eugénie de Montijo. The guest rooms are housed within the two towers, built later and located on either side of the palace. The beautiful gardens and the wide variety of restaurants, where you can try an array of delicious specialties, are the gems of the hotel.

      • Location 1.0

      The main advantage of the Pyramisa Cairo Hotel is undoubtedly its central location, close to the Egyptian Museum, the opera, Cairo Tower, and the Khan El Khalili souk. The neighbourhood also includes a vast selection of restaurants and shops where you can taste Egyptian specialties or buy anything you might need. The hotel doesn't count many Europeans among its clientele; the majority of guests at the Pyramisa is made up of locals, which will give you the opportunity of totally immersing yourself in this fascinating culture. The building is rather big but also quite old and a bit noisy. The marble-clad entrance hall is both majestic and huge, and the interior decor of the hotel is oriental in style. There is a huge difference between the rooms that have been renovated and those that are still waiting their turn. When you book, don't hesitate to insist on having a renovated room, as these afford the nicer view.

    • Ramses II hotel and hostel Ramses II hotel and hostel Ramses II hotel and hostel

      • Value for money 6.99
      • Location 8.97

      The best thing about the Ramses Hilton, located in the heart of the city and on the banks of the Nile, has to be the view it affords of the river, which you can admire from certain parts of the hotel. The hotel occupies a triangle-shaped building, which is why the Nile is only visible from certain rooms. If you choose to stay here, you'll be close to all the touristic activities on offer, such as the Egyptian Museum and Cairo Tower. The VIP area is considerably different from the standard rooms and floors. Don't expect much in the way in luxury if you opt for a single standard room. There is doubt that this hotel does not satisfy the expectations one might have of a 5 star establishment. However, if you decide to stay in a suite or in a superior room, you'll enjoy a spectacular view of the Nile from your room or the lounge area open only to VIP guests. The facilities (the swimming pool is small and badly located) and cleanliness are not on the list of this hotel's strong points. however, it is well located in the centre of Cairo.
