The Nile Ritz Carlton, Cairo

For a first glimpse of Egyptian culture, The Nile Ritz Carlton comes hard to beat. Perched on the banks of the legendary river and with views over the renowned Egyptian Museum from the 331 rooms and rooftop cocktail lounge, you’ll have a good grasp of Cairo before even setting foot in it. Taking inspiration from the style and grandeur of the pharaohs of ancient Egypt and intertwining modern luxuries, the Ritz is a flawless introduction to this enchanting country.


Addresses in Cairo don’t come more iconic than at The Nile Ritz Carlton. With the Nile on one side and one of the city’s main highlights, the Egyptian Museum, on the other; you’ll never need to walk far. Should you need to hop in a car though, it’s just 30 minutes from the airport in one direction and 30 minutes from the Great Pyramids of Giza in the other. Ticking off an Egyptian bucket list is a breeze from here.

Your Room

Inspired by Pharaohs and designed for modern day travelers, the 331 rooms at The Nile Ritz Carlton strike the perfect balance between traditional style and sumptuous comfort. Floor to ceiling windows give way to views of either the River or the Museum whilst hues of duck egg blue, burnt gold and ruby red give a subtle nod to the bold colors favored by the Pharaohs. Meanwhile, king-sized beds are topped with the finest Egyptian cotton sheets and oversized bathtubs take pride of place in the bathrooms.

Why we like it

In a city with so much to see and do, spare a moment to relax and unwind at The Nile Ritz Carlton Spa. Lit by the soft glow of candles and delicately scented with jasmine, you need only step inside to feel your stresses slip away. With treatments inspired by ancient therapies, experience life as a Queen for a day with an exfoliation and mud wrap created in honour of Cleopatra herself.
