"Sprawling elegance in Cairo "
Checked into the Fairmont for a couple nights on a recent trip. This is quite the relaxing oasis after the hustle and bustle of the the city of Cairo. Lavish atrium with water features and palm trees. The staff was very friendly and immediately greeted and took bags. The grounds are quite large with three pools that I counted, a pretty nice gym with spa, and more than a dozen restaurants. I did eat at the outdoor restaurant by the pool, excellent food at very reasonable prices. The breakfast was excellent with eggs to order and many delicious options. The room was large, clean and provided a comfortable king size bed. Beautiful bathroom with separate shower and tub, and the standard toilet/bidet setup. All in all, it was a nice stay. Having stayed at other hotels in Cairo, I liked this one due to proximity to airport, but for those site seeing, there may be better options. Would recommend to those on business travel as prices are very comparable to other hotels of this caliber.
"First time to Cairo and it was a good experience"
Came here on business for the first time and my stay was more than what I expected, friendly helpful staff, rooms are clean comfortable, there is a variety of restaurants which I am yet to try. Price is good which includes breakfast which I feel has lots of variety With open buffet. I would recommend this for business and pleasure stay.
We arrived earlier this week to attend my brothers wedding being held in Cairo and to our luck my wife broke her leg just before we arrive to Egypt. When we came to the hotel, they took amazing care to ensure that everything was convenient and relaxing for both of us! At breakfast, both Mohamed Eid (the chef) & Remon (the best waiter) were constantly ensuring that we have the best food and service, they knew how to put a smile every day to our face. Because of them, we are coming again to the hotel this month!
"One of the better close to the airport hotels for business"
Traffic noise in room was annoying. Bad pillows,... impersonal staff somewhat,... food is bbb. Bad wifi,... overall acceptable for business near the airport. Great lobby lounges for sitting wiyh guests and nice lobby deco,...many restaurants,...
Even with a reservation made 10 months in advance, when we tried to check in for our prepaid Fairmont Suite, we were told there would be a 15-30 minute delay because we were being upgraded. Sounds good. Local time 2: 15. At ONE HOUR, we asked to please just give us the original suite. More Silent Stalling. At ONE HOUR AND 40 MINUTES, we were finally led to a larger Suite, stinking from cigarette smoke. Instead of initially telling us their excuse that there was a “flaw in the reservation system”, the Rooms Manager acted like she was doing us a big favor. Bottom line: DO NOT LIE TO YOUR GUESTS. IT IS INSULTING. THE TRUTH IS ALWAYS THE BEST ROUTE.
