In downtown Cairo, the Fairmont Nile City sits on the banks of the great river and offers stellar views across to the pyramids beyond. A favorite with business travelers, the property is in the Nile City corporate complex, a self-contained enclave for meetings and conferences. The hotel is also a one-stop destination for dining, pampering and downtime, with eight bars and restaurants, an enormous spa and 504 luxe guestrooms and suites. All rooms have an Art Deco–inspired look in champagne shades, with floor-to-ceiling windows framing views of the Nile or the city, and spacious bathrooms outfitted with rainfall showers and posh Le Labo amenities. Foodies have their pick of cuisines, from SoCal favorites in the second-floor Napa Grill to Asian fusion made for sharing at the opulent Saigon Restaurant & Lounge. For more casual eats, the Onyx Lounge serves a popular afternoon tea, while O Bar is the spot for cocktails and dancing until 3 a.m. Or, to make the most of the spectacular views, head for shisa at the alfresco Bab El Nil and mocktails by the Sky Pool. Sybarites should book a sea-based therapy or a milk bath ritual at the pampering Willow Stream Spa.
In the Area
Cairo is a playground for history buffs, with ancient mosques, bazaars and a certain world wonder. Craft an urban adventure that includes a stop at the Citadel to see the Mohamed Ali Mosque and the Mosque of Sultan Hassan, and take a tour of the 14th-century Khan el Khalili bazaar. Or go for the classic Giza itinerary and see the pyramids of Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus, and the famed Sphinx — but get there early (around 8 a.m.) to beat the crowds. For a more modern taste of this ancient capital, plan your trip around the annual Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (at the end of March), visit the Townhouse Gallery, an independent art space in a 19th-century villa, and eat at the Vegan Kitchen or hip Seqouia.
How to Get There
I have been to cairo many times, but this stay was exceptionally fantastic. I loved everything about this hotel, especially how well appointed and comfortable the rooms are. House keeping was so professional at what they do, Ali-Abdulkareem and his colleagues from floor 8 were so courteous and made attention to details every single time.
I will definitely stay at this location next time. Thank you.

I stayed with my wife at the Fairmont Nile. We loved it. The people make all the difference. Francesco, the Deputy Restaurant Manager in charge of our breakfast was extremely helpful. Sarah at the Concierge desk helped us secure the best tours and move about safely and her colleague Pansee at guest relations worked with Sarah to ensure we overcame language problems with our drivers and tour operators. WE COULD NOT BE MORE GRATEFUL TO THEM!!!!
My stay at the Fairmont Nile City was incredible. The accommodations were phenomenal, both beautiful and clean. Sarah at the concierge was extremely helpful in organizing a day trip to Old Cairo with a driver/guide for the timeframe I needed. The restaurants located in the hotel are also wonderful with great views. Additionally, it’s easy to access a large upscale mall from within the hotel, which is great for souvenirs or shopping! Highly recommend this hotel!
I stayed for 5 nights in the Fairmont Nile city and just one word to say: perfect. At the arrival a super warming welcome and great sense of service provided by Karim. During the stay, we used to eat in different places at the hotel and the food was really good and service as well. Room clean perfectly all the time. We ask many times to the concierge (Martha) for different advises/reservations and all done with great professionalism. By the way the tour provided by our guide Andrew was amazing.
Thanks again for this wonderful stay we had. Simply magic. Will definitely come back again.
