Amy Adejokun Section editor

Although it is marketed as a boutique hotel, this 11-storey tower has 191 guest rooms, which doesn't really make it a cosy place. However, there's no denying that the Kempinski Nile Hotel is a beautiful example of international-scale luxury in the centre of Cairo. Reopened in 2010 after being closed for 20 years, one of the most recent luxury hotels to grace the scene in the Egyptian capital will not fail to disappoint the most demanding of guests.

    Location 4.94 /10

    750m south of Tahrir Square and the Egyptian Museum, on the right bank of the Nile (which is 50m away), the Kempinski has a very central location.

    Accommodation 9.70 /10

    The 191 guest rooms and suites are divided into various categories. The 'Madina Deluxe' rooms are actually the standard rooms and have a city view. To have a Nile view, you have to choose either a Superior or a Deluxe room. What you can be sure of is that there is no lack of space (the rooms measure between 33 and 36m˛) or amenities, which include: a large flat-screen television, large safe, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, Hi-Fi stereo, mini-bar with free non-alcoholic drinks, film library (also free), concierge and 24/7 room service. The decor is of the contemporary European style, but is more plush than it is minimalist. The first impression it gives off is one of comfort but, unfortunately, overall it lacks a bit of personality. What we really liked, though, was the free room service for hot drinks, cold water and non-alcoholic beverages. You might like to keep in mind: only the Deluxe rooms (Madina or Nile) have a balcony.

    In addition to the 136 guest rooms, there are 55 suites that are divided into 6 categories, ranging from the "simple" Madina Junior Suite (65m˛) to the very exclusive Imperial Suite (300m˛). The Deluxe suites (Madina or Nile view) measure 100m˛ and are simply lovely. The more traditional decor, the kitchen, the balcony, and the separate bedroom are perfectly pleasant - if you can afford it!

    Overview 8.70 /10

    There is nothing particularly charming about the 11-storey building itself, which has a more or less triangular shape. It is one of those buildings that is better appreciated from the inside, where you will find a contemporary European style with a touch of local colour. Add to this the omnipresent artwork, ranging from French sculptures to Egyptian paintings, and high quality service, and you will see that the Kempinski has everything it takes to seduce its guests. The interior design is neither minimalist nor kitsch, but rather exudes comfort.

    We were also pleased with the facilities, the rooftop terrace with a small swimming pool and a beautiful view of the Nile, the gym (which also has a beautiful view but not very much equipment), and most of all, the very pretty little spa on the top floor.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    Guests at the Kempinski Nile Hotel can choose between two restaurants. First, there is the international restaurant called The Blue which serves traditional cuisine like Caesar salad and grilled meats, but also some more creative dishes. With grey-blue armchairs and large paintings on the walls, the setting is very cosy. Meals are served from 6:30am to 11:00am, midday to 4:30pm, and 6:00pm to 11:00pm.

    The other option for lunch or dinner is The Osmanly, where you can go on a culinary journey through the Ottoman Empire. Here, Turkish cuisine is served in a dining room with a contemporary Eastern-style decor.

    There are also three different bars where you can enjoy some tea or spend part of the evening. The aptly-named Chocolate Lounge proposes a special chocolate menu, pastries at tea time, and a large selection of hot drinks. The settings are all very cosy. The Jazz Bar on the 10th floor offers a warm and relaxing setting either inside or on the terrace, where you will have a beautiful view of the Nile. A Mediterranean dinner with live cooking is held here every Friday night. Finally, the Cigar Lounge will delight those who love their belvederes!

    To know

    This luxury establishment is also very accommodating for families, with communicating rooms, the possibility to add a child's bed in the rooms, and special menus in the restaurants.

      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.

      The Fairmont Heliopolis is a new and elegant 5 star hotel located in Heliopolis, just 3 mi from Cairo International Airport, making this the perfect place to spend the first or last couple of days of your stay in Cairo. Of course, its location is also particularly handy if your flight leaves early in the morning or if you're arriving in Cairo late in the evening, as you can spend the night just a few minutes from the airport. The hotel employees provide impeccable and personalised service and, as for the hotel itself, it offers wonderful facilities, fine restaurants, and a very charming decor.

    • 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.
