Fodor's Review

The circular tower has been gracing the Cairo skyline for well over two decades, but the interiors here have been brought up to date, and the hotel has reemerged as a must-visit place among expats and visitors for its bars and restaurants. Contemporary luxury and understated style are the watchwords for the public areas. Rooms are decorated with cool neutral shades and pale pastels. The hotel sits on the southern tip of Gezira Island surrounded by parks and residential districts.
