We've just come back from four nights in this hotel on a mixture of business and pleasure and it was fantastic. The service was impeccable and the attention to detail was fantastic. The pool area was very quiet and calming and the staff were very happy to help. The breakfast was excellent quality as was the buffet in the evening....

I returned to Cairo, where I used to live, with great pleasure in spite of the recent and continuing upheavals there. The Four Seasons was suffering from the tourist and business downturn, offering unbeatable rates. I was given a lovely room, and, as so often in Egypt, service was tremendously attentive and warm. Breakfast was hugely varied and delicvious. The...

Great facilities - restaurants, gym, pool, business centre - allied with nice rooms and friendly staff make for an all round pleasant experience. I recommend the Thai food - the shared starter platter is a MUST! - and the buffet breakfast is very good.

I travel to Cairo at least once a year for leisure and have spent the past ten years staying at either one of the Four Seasons' in Cairo so I am a dedicated guest. I decided this year to stay again at First Residence rather than Nile Plaza due to the location (being further away from Tahrir Square) which turned...

This property was immaculate. The staff cannot do enough to make your stay perfect. They gave our children a special check in gift and small bathrobes. They would bring floats to the pool and have towels ready. The restaurants are wonderful. We walked thought the buffet area and when we did not particularly care for anything, the staff had menus...

One expects the very best of Four Seasons, but by any standard, the Four Seasons First Residence, Cairo, excels. I stayed for 5 nights in April 2013 and encourage you to visit, and stay here. The accommodations are immaculate. The design and furnishing - a delightful mix of European and Middle Eastern Luxe. The staff superb - unobtrusive, yet responsive,...

Cairo can be a rather hectic city with crazy traffic and constant attention from hawkers, so it's important to have a peaceful place to return to at the end of your day. The Four Seasons at the First Residence is the ideal choice for this. The staff is beyond wonderful: they will answer all your questions about the expertly prepared...

Very average hotel. Probably quite good for Cairo, but don’t go here with high expectations. The reception staff are professional, but not particularly sincere. The rooms are getting a little dated whilst the bathroom was big and quite modern. The pool and the surrounding area is quite pleasant, but drinks and food there are expensive even by hotel standards.

Dear Sakabuna, Thanks for taking the time to respond on Tripadvisor. Thanks you very much for your constructive comments. I am sorry that the room decor, and food and beverage pricing on the pool fell short of your expectations. I would like to assure that we constantly strive to achieve the highest level of service and I truly regret that...
