The Nile Ritz-Carlton

Nile Ritz Carlton

Just as the Pharaohs watched over Ancient Egypt for thousands of years, the hotel’s iconic façade pays homage to Pharaonic life, with emblematic carvings, significant during their great reign. Symbols of the key of life and blessings of the River Nile lift the curtain to an ancient civilization. Inside the lobby, replicas of the two most famous Pharaonic antiques found at the mighty temples of Aswan in Edfu and Karnak hang majestically. A gift to the hotel from the late president Abd El Nasser in 1959, both pay homage to the rich heritage and prosperity of Ancient Egypt, providing a beguiling insight into a mystical past.

Today guests will experience the true sense of elegance by the stewardship of The Ritz-Carlton hotels.
