Overview

Luxe digs on the banks of the Nile, with Art Deco–style interiors, eight restaurants and bars, and a sublime spa

The Lowdown

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.

Best Hotel in Cairo
Duaa A

The hotel is one of the most modern hotels in Cairo. The rooms are clean, furniture is new, a lot of activities and facilities in the hotel. Sometimes the songs from the restaurant down can be heard in the room. The staff are friendly and the lobby is full of life 24/7. There is a small mall connected to the hotel that has Starbucks, restaurants, cafes, ...etc.
