Being a Four Seasons property, each of the four styles of rooms and six types of suites is spacious, well-appointed and elegantly designed.

Floor-to-ceiling windows and a large terrace provide guests with breathtaking views of the Nile from every angle. Don’t miss watching the sunset while listening to the call to prayer.

Restaurants

The hotel’s nine on-site restaurants and lounges offer something for every type of dining.

For authentic Egyptian food overlooking the Nile, any meal of the day, visit Zitouni. The extensive breakfast buffet with traditional savory options such as full meladies (stewed fava beans) or sesame falafel with hummus – along with sweet options like hot and flaky feteer meshaltet pastries served with cheese and drizzled with molasses – are so delicious you won’t be able to leave the hotel for breakfast during your entire stay.

Maintenance

Even among the most highly regarded luxury hotel brands, Four Seasons is known for raising the bar on guest service, a perk that I had the opportunity to explore during my stay at Four Seasons Hotel Cairo in Nile Plaza.

The hotel’s warm and welcoming staff went out of their way to make every detail of my stay exceptional, from planning cars to arranging excursions and a top-notch guide.

During my stay, an incredibly attentive and considerate waiter also took great care in securing my favorite table overlooking the Nile, and every morning asked the kitchen to add a few extras from the menu to my favorite breakfast dish .

And when I had trouble finding a Covid testing facility that could deliver test results in time for me to make my flight home to the United States, the concierge graciously dove in to smooth out the travel problem that threatened my travel plans. derail.

Pyramid experience

Of course, no trip to Egypt is complete without a visit to its most majestic destination, the Giza complex. To see the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx in luxury style, book the hotel’s once-in-a-lifetime Dine at One of the Seven Wonders excursion. Enjoy unparalleled views of the monuments of Egypt’s pharaohs as you sit high on the Giza Plateau. Enjoy live music and local entertainment during a globally inspired dinner prepared by a Four Seasons private chef from the comfort of a stylish private tent.
