... They later left and soon the alchemist left Santiago and Santiago went on his own. A few days later Santiago reached the dunes. He climbed slowly to the top, and down below were the pyramids. He knelt down and wept. Where his tear fell he knew he must dig, so he dug. All of a sudden two strangers appeared. They started to beat him and asked what he was doing. They said that he must have stolen and told him to keep digging. "I ...

'This is Eike,' Yesir grabs the first, powerful looking animal by the collar and breaks into English to scold our over-enthusiastic new friend. 'He's a German dog, but trained in English so you can't address him in Arabic' Amr informs me. 'And this is Banda,' Yesir adds. 'She came from Israel so only speaks Yiddish'. Of course…

Historical Traveler Reviews Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza
Calm and Elegant
Cairo can be a bit daunting--but the Four Seasons Nile Plaza is a luxurious and relaxing oasis. We were lucky to have a suite on the 16th floor overlooking the Nile. The views were breathtaking and the soundproof doors kept out the constant street noise. The decor was modern and tasteful and the service was superb. We had dinner at the Spice Restaurant--an upscale Chinese offering-- and it was excellent. The Spa at the hotel was very nice and the work out room had a lovely view of the Nile as well. For the price, the hotel offered an excellent value and I would not hestitate to recommend the Four Seasons Nile Plaza to anyone headed to Cairo.
Hotel was wonderful. Room was huge and immaculate. Pool area is lovely-surroundings are really classy but you do hear the noise from city. Best point about hotel was the staff- very very polite and attentive (if anything-reception staff let the side down, but only slighty.)
We stayed here for four nights in a recent week-long trip to Egypt. The hotel was great; we had a room facing the Citadel and the city of Cairo. Rooms were large and super clean. Had a problem with our shower that was quickly fixed.
We spent 3 nights at the Four Seasons at Nile Plaza, from march 26th. I could not recommend it any warmlier.
Stayed at the Four seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza in January. It was the last leg of our trip that included a small hotel in Zamalek as well as a week long cruise on the Nile. The room was extraordinary and although they did not have a room with two beds for my mother and myself they provided one of the most luxurious rollaway beds I have ever experienced. The location was perfect and the tourist police that assisted us across the street every time we ventured out were great!! The breakfast buffet was to die for but the front desk never mentioned where it was located even though it was included in our room rate. Had dinner our last night there in the italian retaurant and wished we hadn't. Very uppity, even for a Four Seasons. Felt very uncomfortable and was scolded for what I ordered ( I ordered two pastas...God forbid!!). The music in the italian restaurant was the same song over and over. Very annoying!!
One expects fabulous service at Four Seasons. However, this property goes the extra mile and is the best of the best. Upon arrival from a week on the Nile we presented disheveled, dusty, exhausted guests. We were whisked through check in and shown to our Nile view room. The beds were very comfortable, the bath room suite beautiful as well as thoughtfully designed and the service impeccable. My hiking boots were given complimentary cleaning, without asking, and polishing and looked better than new! The only problem that we had was getting a bit lost on the way to lunch but friendly staff is posted at strategic locations to guide one back on the right course! The food was very well prepared and there was a wide selection to choose from. I can not say enough that the tariff is worth every cent. Treat yourself while in Egypt enjoying the splendours of past ages with this modern marvel of good taste and excellent service.
The Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza is absolutely the most beautiful place to stay. I was greeted at the airport by warm staff, and enjoyed a comfortable (albeit long) ride to the hotel in their luxury Mercedes car. Upon arrival at the hotel, I was welcomed into a beautiful, sophisticated lobby bedecked in wood and silk. Check-in was fast, and the staff were very welcoming. The room was unbelievable; I had a Nile view room, and the view from the balcony was to die for, especially at night! Greens and yellows were abundant in the room, technology was state-of-the-art, and the bathrooms (complete with double vanity, bathtub, and separate shower stall) were ultra-luxurious! Room service was delicious and efficient! Visit Bella, the Italian restaurant; the food is seriously unbelievable! I recommend the tomato soup, along with the steak fillets... My mouth is watering at the sheer thought! The health facilities were new and glimmering: the spa (sauna, steam room, and massage rooms) was comprehensive and had something for everyone! As for the swimming pools, there were indoor and outdoor pools to suit all swimmers! Landscaping was relaxing; if it wasn't for the perpetual sound of Cairo traffic, the hotel would be a resort! Check-out was speedy, and the car whisked me to the airport for my flight. The Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza is a true wonder: don't stay anywhere else but here!
Only place in Cairo
First, i lived part time in Cairo for two years, so i know the city pretty well, including the hotels.
The only one where i stayed at is the Four Seasons, for one week, though i visited all the others for different purposes.
Believe me, this is by far the best place to go.
The place is very very beautiful. It's just the greatest place to stay at in cairo.
Rooms are wonderful, service out of this world (I saw many excellent hotels in the world , and this one is among the best). All other places in Cairo are crappy, just good for backpackers.
It's a bit offset from the city "center" if such a thing exists, but anyway, cabs are very cheap (pay less than 8 EGP to get downtown)
We stayed here in February, 2004 for two nights. This hotel does not disappoint! As a member of the Four Seasons chain, you expect five star service, luxury, accommodations, etc. And you get it all here. The location is across the street from the Zoo on one side and facing the Nile on the other side. Our room, on a high floor, had a view of the Pyramids on the days it was not too smoggy to see them. The room was a good size with beautiful, tasteful furniture and the bathroom was terrific--lots of water pressure, shower stall, separate bathtub and plenty of amenities, such as the usuals of shampoo, body lotion, but also, cotton swabs, cotton squares, emery board, magnifying mirror with light as well as plenty of towels. The bar/lounge serves light food and is very pleasant day and evening. We sat here one morning into early afternoon and the servers could not have been more pleasant in constantly serving us. The restaurant breakfast buffet was outstanding with fresh cooked eggs if you wished. We also had dinner there one night (Valentine's Day, which we had no idea was celebrated so widely in Egypt) and the meal was very good. The hotel is attached to a small shopping arcade with not a mass market chain store in sight! There is also a spa in the hotel which offered massages as well as nail care, facials and such. We had massages that were excellent. If you are arriving by plane and must come through customs, the hotel offers a service (for a fee) of picking you up at the airport right as you come off the plane and taking you through customs, arranging for the visa stamps, picking up your bags and loading them into a car which then drives you to the hotel. I would highly recommend this service, particularly if you have never been to Cairo as the airport is all frenzied activity and we would have been very uncomfortable without someone shepherding us through. I would stay here everytime I came to Cairo.
