Four Seasons at the First Residence
Coveted Nile views are enjoyed by most of the rooms at this older of the Four Seasons hotels in the capital. With 271 rooms, it’s a sizeable property but the design keeps it feeling like a boutique escape. The rooms facing the city overlook a green park, and guests are well looked after with three restaurants and a wonderful pool.
Almost biblical in its atmosphere, it’s hard to imagine a greater collection of the world’s most interesting antiquities. The city is somewhat chaotic, but that adds to the feeling of adventure as you hunt down the pyramids, sphinx and incredible museums showing off the greatest archaeological finds of an age.
