Fodor's Expert Review Fairmont Nile City

2005 Corniche al-Nil, Cairo, Cairo, 11221, Egypt Fodor's Choice

Between two towering office blocks overlooking the Nile, this luxury hotel appeals to both business and leisure travelers, with an interior design that looks to the early 20th century for its inspiration. To balance the yin and yang, rooms have contrasting color schemes—rich black and gold juxtaposed with cool ivories and natural tones.
