With just over 130 rooms and around 50 suites, the Kempinski has an intimate feel to it. Rooms are elegant, spacious and equipped with all the modern amenities you would expect. This includes air-conditioning, coffee and tea making facilities, free Wi-Fi, and 24/7 butler service. The interiors could use an update, although rooms benefit from being bright and expansive. Rooms boast floor to ceiling windows which look out across the city or Nile. Suites have a separate bedroom and living area and are roughly double the size of the rooms. Suites are a great option for families, although interconnected rooms are also available.


The Kempinski Nile Hotel Cairo is situated in the heart of the affluent Garden City historic quarter, on the east bank of the Nile.
