Fodor's Review

In a word, this hotel is superb, offering luxury amenities and rooms in a serene setting. Once through the portal you'll feel like you're entering a modern Venetian palace. Service is smoothly efficient, attentive to the smallest detail and seemingly never more than a whisper away, waiting to meet your needs. The rooms, too, are a marvel of luxury, with marble bathrooms standard. The best rooms face west (be sure to request a balcony), with the lush green tapestry of the

zoo just below and the haunting form of the Pyramids hovering in the distance.

Too far from the action

I liked the hotel very much. But, it location is too far from the action. There was nothing outside the hotel in the evening. The zoo across the street was a horrible demonstration of animal cruelty. I have been to Cairo many many times. I would opt for one of the downtown hotels on my next visit rather than the out-of-the-way Four Seasons.

We Felt Like Ceaser and Cleopatra

Just got back last week from the Four Seasons. We stayed there for 2 nights on our way to Sharm El Sheik and then one night on the way home. Awesome!!!! Some of the best service in the whole world. They do not know the word "no". Hire one of their drivers to get around---they help with everything and saves u a ton of time. Our driver even reached into his own pocket when I was out of Egyptian pounds. The spa was amazing. You get way more then

you should for your money there---I went 3 times. If you feel like a lite dinner go to the bar and just order a ton of different appetizers---great atmosphere and the service is great. Also, let them pick u up at the airport---they are the only hotel allowed by the gate---they get u thru customs real fast and u don't have to wait in line---the rep in the airport does everything for you---then he walki talks to the driver who meets u out front---he notifies the hotel when you are a few minutes away---8 staff met our car---you truly feel like a Pharoh here. Also, the hotel is on the none tourist side of the Nile by the diplomatic residences. Very safe and when you walk along the Nile at night no one tries to sell u anything. Male sure u ask for a room over looking the zoo---the other side faces the Four Seasons First Residence Apartments. Really made our trip a dream---would stay there in a heart=beat again.
