When he inaugurated it in 1959, President Nasser wanted to bring Cairo into modernity and attract investors. Its geometrical lines are typical of the architecture of the 1950s and earned it its current modernity, since that period corresponds to contemporary tastes, including those of Europeans. If you love places with style, this is where you should stay.
Bought by the Ritz Carlton group, it was first refurbished and recently reopened with rooms every bit as bright and spacious as they had been before. Their decoration is simple and elegant, perfectly highlighting the captivating views of the Nile.
Imagine your feet in the thick carpet, reading Lawrence Durrell by moonlight, until it's time for a delightful dinner overlooking the legendary river. Just before, you will have glimpsed the Giza pyramids in the mist while taking a few relaxing laps in the pool, the most beautiful in Cairo.
