                      The location was excellent and the staff was very accommodating.

                      Booked.net hadn't faxed over my reservation so there was some delay as the hotel confirmed things with them.

                      Rooms are spacious and luxureous; Upgrade to Fairmont Gold and its lounge access is worth it; Late 6pm check-out request was accommodated

                      Despite prior arrangements no Meet & Greet at the airport; No airport pick up; Bars had many private functions with no access for hotel guests; Key cards go faulty 2, 3 times a day; Sushi chef left the bathroom without washing his hands... ; Limited availability of limos without prior arrangements; Rooms with partial Nile view literally provide very little partial Nile view; Emails were leaving my computer but never reached the recipients

                      When we checked in we were upgraded to the Fairmont Gold Lounge. The extra's we got with the Gold Lounge was excellent.

                      Comfort,friendly staff and allowing for early check in and late check out.

                      We felt the spa treatments were overpriced in relation to other hotels we stayed at.

                      We have staed in the Fairmont Nile twice in the past month. Each time we have found the standard of service and the cleanliness of the room to be excellant.

                      Our most recent stay was spoiled by continuos banging which didn't stop untill 10:30 at night. It seemed to be coming from one of the rooms on the floor above us. Maybe one of the roomsup there was being re-furbished. We were on the point of making complaint when the noise stoppped. Also......I observed that English afternoon tea is served in the hotel. Being an international hotel I would expect that in the rooms milk would be on the tea tray as the English take milk in tea and coffee. Both times that we have stayed at the Fairmont we have had Tea, Coffee and sugar in the room but no milk or creamer.

                      The view is incredable and the room is amasing.

                      The back area of the hotel is very old houses and scarey.

                      Just wonderful : great room with an amazing nile view, very nice staff, excellent food, the fairmont gold lounge. Plus we were upgraded to fairmont gold, which was simply amazing (although we dont really know why...). Value for money was great.

                      This hotel is first class and the staff could not do enough to make our stay perfect for us, the room was beautiful with state of the art bathroom.The top floor swimming pool and bar/restaurant was superb with breathtaking views of Cairo. We had dinner delivered to our room and it was very nice. If I stay in Cairo again I wouldn't even look at other hotels there. When I left I wanted a taxi and the staff took the taxi number, mobile number, driver name etc for our safety which made us feel that we were being looked after.

                      Staff was there for you, waiting for you to request almost anything.

                      1) Clock on the the bed table and IPTV box were very cheap, doesn't live up to the Fairmont excellence standards. 2) Towels were very dry, unlike other relative hotels serves them extremely soft. 3) Loud and noisy in midnight, you can't sleep from the clubbing music in the roof of the hotel, felt that I'm staying at a cheap motel and not the Fairmont, such a disgrace and shameful.

                      it was luxury, the staff was fine, the room was wide, its a new hotel.

                      extra tax and fees showed in the last balance summary.

                      View over the Nile, breakfast, quality of the room and finishing

                      Room service not very adequate

                      The service was excellent. We were there for a total of 4 days (2 separate times). The food was great--we never got sick. However, as with any foreigh hotel, we never drank from the tap. There was always plenty of complimentary bottled water provided. They have security around the building entrances (due to the current political troubles). Anything that needed fixing (once our shower didn't work and a light fixture wasn't working) was fixed immediately. The complimentary buffet breakfasts that were provided in our tour package) were excellent. This is a bad place for someone on a diet! The dinners were priced at what you would pay for dinner out in the states--about $50 American for two. The dinners were excellent. If you upgrades to the "Gold Club" package ($40 a night) you get full access to the internet (although I had a hard time getting iPhone access to it in my room--one had to go downstairs to really make use of it). But mos timportantly, you get to eat your dinners up on the 14th floor. There is also a business center there where we printed out our boarding passes. So I think the $40 Gold package is a good value if you're concerned about eating out in a strange country. From the top of the hotel (where the pool is) you can see the Pyramids on a clear day.

                      Hmmm...no not really. The hotel staff really is very friendly. Of course, like many countries (e.g., Greece) they have a covered trash bin in the bathroom to place your soiled toilet paper. There's no requirement to have to use it, but "when in Rome, do as the Romans." Also, as with any Third World country the juxtaposition of rich and poor are very close to each other. There were slums quite visible from the rooftop.
