Kempinski is to open its first hotel in Cairo, Egypt, in June. The Kempinski Nile Hotel will replace an old hotel on the river banks of the Nile in one of Cairos most strategic downtown spots.

Whilst still holding onto its precious location in the lively heart of Cairo, the hotel was revamped in 30 months, where the dcor and character have been changed, evolving into a more contemporary set-up that captures the essence of style and relaxed elegance. The interior design of the 191-room boutique style hotel was done by the world renowned French architect Pierre Yves Rochon.

Axel Ludwig, General Manager, Kempinski Nile Hotel said, The prime location of the property, combined with its superlative facilities, give Kempinski a great opportunity to positively establish the brand in Cairo. The hotel design, location and views offer a great competitive advantage, positioning Kempinski at the onset of market penetration in the Egyptian capital. Kempinski Nile Hotel is set to offer the key values of City Boutique hotels. The contemporary elegant design combined with the warm charming atmosphere and the tailored service reflect the European luxury and life style blended with the Egyptian culture and authenticity.

With a philosophy of borrowing from the richest aspects of local culture, 500 different paintings and 250 sculptures have been selected from local artists to be placed throughout the hotel.

The lobby is a chocolate lounge, offering a respite from the city with a little bit of indulgence. Multiple outlets are being planned to offer unique food and beverage experiences whether its the rooftop or Floor 10, serving contemporary French Cuisine or a more culturally intimate experience in Osmanly: the ottoman restaurant inspired by Egypts rich history in association with Turkey and the Ottoman Empire.

A hip shisha bar is also on the drawing table to celebrate one of the oldest traditions in Egypt. However next to the traditional Arabic Shisha, Kempinski will offer a collection of Designer Shishas from London, Paris, Moscow and Beirut with selected tobaccos and Oriental chill out Music presented by a DJ in Shishawy.
