Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts has expanded into Egypt and the African continent with the opening of Waldorf Astoria Cairo Heliopolis. 

Located in the ancient city of Heliopolis, Waldorf Astoria Cairo Heliopolis is close to Egypt’s main presidential palace, Downtown Cairo, Khan El Khalili Bazaar and the upcoming Grand Egyptian Museum. 

Drawing on influences from the city’s history, the rebranded and renovated property features ancient Egyptian references interpreted in a modern way.

Newly 252 refurbished rooms and suites feature wood floors and floor-to-ceiling windows. Booking clients into a Rosetta room or suite gives them access to the Rosetta Club, offering guests complimentary food and drinks. 

Waldorf Astoria Cairo Heliopolis' signature restaurant is Brasserie Ayda, serving a Mediterranean menu. The hotel also features Peacock Alley, the brand's signature lounge found at Waldorf Astoria properties worldwide; Bar Raa, named after the ancient Egyptian sun god, and Le Jardin Pool Bar.
