  • Service
    4.0

    The service was ok. Some of the staff members were incredibly helpful, whereas others were slow and less friendly. Check in and out took half an hour each, which is way too long. English was very well spoken. Room was well cleaned. Concierge was helpful. Restaurant service was very slow.

    The hotel is an hour from the airport, half an hour from the Giza Pyramids and a few meters from the Nile... Albeit across a very busy, difficult to cross road! No shopping faculties within walking distance.

    Swimming pool was lovely on the roof top with a great view of the Nile. Water temperature was lovely and warm compared to cool air, which was excellent and great for the kids. There is a basic gym as well.

    We had a marina suite, which was very big and plenty of room for 2 adults and 2 children. Room was fairly quiet, although could still hear the Cairo traffic. Air conditioners were very effective. Coffee and tea was meant to be complimentary but, even upon asking numerous times, it was not replenished. There was a little kitchenette, fridge and safe. Room was clean although hotel smells very smoky because smoking is allowed everywhere.

  • Gastronomy
    4.0

    The food was tasty. There are two restaurants- an all day dining (with western and grill food) and an Arabic restaurant. There was also a jazz bar and pool bar. The all day dining also did the breakfast, which is not included with the room. Food was good but service was terrible. An hour to get lunch when no one else was in the restaurant! Also there was no kids menu. It was fairly clean. Pool bar was generally un-manned and you had to go and find someone to make an order.

Ideal safe location in Cairo across from the Nile

The name of the hotel is very fitting because the Nile Kempinski is indeed right across from the Nile Review. Before booking, I had debated whether I should book the Four Seasons instead but because of price, settled on the Nile Kempinski. I was generally pleased with the hotel although I didn't find the interior of the hotel overly inviting. I felt like it needed more atmosphere, it seemed hollow. However, the service of the hotel was phenomenal as was the food offerings. There is a lot of security at the hotel entrance which is extremely important in Cairo. My ... room was wonderful. I had a balcony view of the Nile. The room itself was very clean and very large. The bathroom was a little on the small side but manageable. Although the Four Seasons may be a tad nicer, for the price, the Nile Kempinski was a great choice! read hotel review

Kempinski stay- nothing special but good

My stay in hotel was fine. I stayed just one day but I could say that hotel is not special at all. It is good location and connection. Hotel is near Nile so you have a nice view off dirty city but you can not expect much from third world country. read hotel review
