                    Excellent location,staff and Care.

                    The spa changing room wasn't clean, some restaurant's are closed, swimming pool very small.

                    I was so impressed by how helpful, friendly and respectful the staff were. Noting was too much trouble. The hotel's attention to detail is amazing. I would say the service as good as the Ritz in London. Nothing was too much trouble It was a true 5 star and I would say deserves a 6 star..

                    I am staying in 5* holels usually around 10 nights per month, mostly in Europe, sometimes middle-east. This was my first Kempinski experience and although I heard before that it's good, it really exceeded my expectations. Staff is proffesional, room had no mistake. I appreciated extra free services (welcome drink, minibar, in-room cinema).

                    Pool is opened from 7 A.M. to 7 P.M. only. But I guess that it's only my problem that I can't unstick the laptop from myself sooner than in the middle of night.

                    Amazing staff… amazing service… the best location in Cairo right up front to the Nile. Many great surprises such the free movies in all different languages and free soft drinks all day long in the room! It was my first time enjoying a butler service: what a great idea! Why other hotels don’t do the same?? I have used the wellness center: great view from the Gym and you feel like a VIP at the pool overlooking the Nile. For sure the best 5 star hotel in town!

                    What makes the hotel exceptional is not merely the aesthetic physical structure and comforting atmosphere of soft music, art and clean, marble- like classical architecture, but, most importantly, the cheerful, friendly and helpful Egyptian staff.

                    Alcoholic beverages were 300% overpriced.

                    This hotel is my new favourite in Cairo! The service is much higher than the one proposed in the old dusty 5 star hotels towers available downtown. The room was spotless, free minibar, free movie library and free WiFi. They have a business center with free internet access also. Spa is beautiful, and the outdoor swimming pool is probably the best in Cairo offering amazing view on the Nile. The rate was great in comparaison with the other properties in town as are they are quite similar but there is real value for money at Kempinski. Location is the best in Cairo as perfectly located on the Cornish within Garden city. Great job there! I will come back to Kempinski.

                    Excellent staff, room service, comfort, cleanliness, staff attentiveness, wonderful welcome when arriving at hotel.

                    Rates very expensive, Internet access quite slow, pick up and drop offs from and to airport and the hotel, very expensive, no breakfast included in the rates.

                    Excellent very welcoming personal atmosphere! Free internet wireless, free coffee and tea brought to the room (butler service).Small but nice pool with one of the best views over the Nile in Cairo.

                    Die "Nile Junior Suites" haben zu kleine Fenster und keinen Balkon und keinen sonderlichen Blick - also besser Nile Deluxe Räume, die zwar kleiner sind buchen mit Balkon - das ist das um und auf dieses Hotels! Oder die grosse Partie - Nile Deluxe Suite.

                    Honestly everything, the cleanness, the location, the staff, the food, and most of all the nile view.

                    Rooms are relativly small.

                    The breakfast was excellent and really great fresh juices were served

                    Booked a Nile suite with view to the Nile and was told that it was not ready although we arrived around 16:30 and that we were getting an upgrade. Was happy to wait half an hr when I heard upgrade but when entering the room, it had no view to the Nile. We changed for one with a view and guess what, we had to pay an extra. Asked to keep the room till 12:45 on the eve of our departure but was told not possible and that they needed to clean it before next guest arrive and I had to leave the room at 11:00. And it seemed to me that they didnt even know their own check-out policy was 12:00. Had often internet problems and from my room the guy called the it admin on his mobile with the room phone and while checking out, they were charging us this. Of course they removed it when we asked what it was but find this really cheeky.

                    I've stayed at over 4 different Kempinski Hotels and hundreds of 5 star hotels , this by far had got to be the worst hotel experience. The staff were all very confused and not helpful , except for the checkin staff. Was there for a new year weekend , which was ruined by rude and incompetent staff. It was difficult to get someone to get me a newspaper which I ordered at check in , I had to call for the luggage 3 times without anyone ever showing up. Ordered breakfast inroom , I got used Jam, and dry and stale bread. Thank You for ruining the Kempinski Experience by not being able to get me my small requests
