Though a five-star tower, it has the feel of a charming boutique hotel.
This spirit that is the magic of Cairo that makes the city ever desirable can be found here. Its decor subtly mixes the old Arab style with Art Nouveau. The carved wooden ceiling of the lobby is reminiscent of turn-of-the-century villas, while the salons, like the bar, embody cosy chic. As your room or suite overlooks the Nile, some nights you'll find yourself dreaming you are sailing to Upper Egypt.
Nothing is more pleasant than to take your breakfast on one of the terraces and then have dinner in the scent of jasmine on the opposite side of the river. You can go from one to the other by bridges reminiscent of those of yachts, with the pleasing idea of imagining yourself on a schooner while staying in port. The sense of being elsewhere is total, even if it is sometimes fleeting. On the other side of the bridge is a contemporary Cairo that extends its open arms. Another of this hotel's advantages is French service allied with Eastern hospitality.
