Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence £££££

The Four Seasons Cairo at the First Residence is a beautiful, five-star hotel situated on the west bank of the Nile with impressive views of the Great Pyramids and over the canopy of Cairo’s ancient Zoological and Botanical Gardens. The service is excellent and the attention to detail in the 269 beautifully decorated rooms is second to none. The hotel has a spa offering relaxing treatments using Egyptian techniques, an outdoor swimming pool and a gym.

Marriott Mena House £££££

  • Egypt
  • City

With a superb location adjacent to the Pyramids of Giza, The Mena House was originally a royal hunting lodge used by the King of Egypt. In 1869 it was sold and converted into a hotel and today, the comfortable rooms are surrounded by 40 acres of grounds. The decor within the Palace Wing is elegant with many antiques remaining as well as evidence of the rich history and famous guests it has hosted such as Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin.

Four Seasons Nile Plaza £££££

  • Egypt
  • City

The Four Seasons Nile Plaza is the newer of the two Four Seasons hotels set in Cairo’s oldest district. Constructed from scratch, unlike its neighbour the First Residence, you get much bigger bedrooms and a more contemporary feel, with all of the charm and attention to detail as you would expect from a Four Seasons. Located on the banks of the Nile, the views are pretty impressive from almost every angle. There are numerous restaurants to delight all manner of tastes, and the rooftop lounge is a great place to enjoy the views whilst enjoying freshly made tapas & cocktails.

Our guide in Cairo was obviously one of the best and did wonders for our knowledge of the ancient history of Egypt.

Egypt

Thank you so much for assisting us with all of the planning. We wouldn't hesitate to go back to Egypt again. There is so much to see there.

Egypt

The choice of accommodation was absolutely excellent throughout! Mohamed Saad, our guide from Luxor onwards, was outstanding and should be recommended strongly. We also hired an ornithological expert ( Shaban ) for a morning - excellent.
