It was a nice stay but the hotel is already a bit old. The rooms are small as well as the pool at the roof top. I expected a better breakfast for a Kempinski Hotel but the bars are ok. The location is good and the staff is helpful and friendly. I give 4 stars for the hotel.

Agoda suite booking was downgraded. Stay at the 4 Seasons”

We booked the Imperial Suite via Agoda and called to confirm the booking prior to arrival but when we arrived at 1 in the morning the night manager told us we had not paid enough for the room (we paid in full through Agoda) and proceeded to downgrade our three night stay to 2 standard rooms or gave us the option for a refund. Unfortunately, at 1 in the morning after a long travel with an infant, a 3-year old, and my mother-in-law we didn’t have a real option. The next morning I tried to sort everything with the day manager but to no avail. I couldn’t be more disappointed in the Kempinski. Putting that all aside, the hotel was in sad shape. The carpets had stains all over and were worn down, most of the furniture is scratched or damaged, the rooms on the lower floors are noisy (street noise) and the Nile view is horrible. Obviously, our opinion of the staff was bad. For the same price point you could stay at one of the 4 Seasons both have a view of the pyramids and the highest standar

Error from Agoda ruined my stay”

I booked nile deluxe room and when came to the hotel I was told that my room is not nile room, it is madina room and that what Agoda had booked for me. I showed the reception my online booking confirmation but didn’t work the hotel advised me to contact with Agoda. After contacting Agoda customers service which is for justice very cooperative and helpful but slow and still haven’t solved the problem. In that time I had to stay somewhere else and didn’t stay in Kempinski cuz the whole travel had been supposed to stay with nile view. Kempinski said that was not our mistake and we’re fully booked and Agoda So far Still trying for the error to be solved with Kempinski for a refund and Iam waiting for this. Only wished that Kempinski were cooperating and understanding and helped me that time in reception.

Worst Service ever for Kempinski”

Pros: It's a beautiful hotel. Clean rooms. Nice heated pool, spa, few restaurants, etc. Cons: Service is most horrible. Will never come back and stay at this hotel. I'm not sure if these people know what service is. Incident 1: We were told by receptionist that swimming pool opens from 7am to 7pm. So we started swimming at 4:45pm. Very nice heated pool. We were enjoying it until a guy disturbed us. A muscular guy in white polo walked by to the pool while we were in the water. He told us in exact words: "Get out. We are finished". What the. So we said we were told the pool doesn't close until 7pm. He said its a mistake and that we need to leave now. We looked at the time. It's exactly 5:15pm. We refused to leave and we asked to talk to a manager. Manager never came because they never called manager for us. Pls take a look at the picture I posted. We waited until 5:35pm for manager. The picture shows that the pool in summer closes at 7pm and winter at 6pm. Picture shows it was only 5:35pm. But we were told to leave at 5:15pm. Take that as a customer service. We called for manager again and a very nice Chief Butler (his business card in picture) came to our room to apologize. He apologized repeatedly and asked for what he can do for us and offer us some drinks. We like this guy. He's very nice to talk to and he apologized many times for something he did not cause. Incident 2: My mother stayed alone in one room. One evening, a guy in suit came knocking on the door to my mom's room. She mistakenly opened the door. He walked in and took the wine bottle on top of the mini bar. She asked him why he took it and he didn't answer. She asked him if she would be charged for it in the bill and he said no. Surely, when we checked out, the wine was in the bill. We told the receptionist the full story and they waived the bill. But the incident goes much further than the bill. They have no right to knock on the door of occupied guest room and no right to walk inside w

Excellent hotel with good service, close to Tahir Square, Egyptian Museum and many restaurants and sights downtown. Nice gym on the top floor with Nile view. Pool is very small, crowded during peak hours. Cafe on lobby floor serves good coffee and food. This is an exciting time to be in Egypt, I had no issues with safety/security, and while there were various protests, they had no impact on movement around the city or at the major sights.
