Boutique hotels are generally defined as small properties with distinct design and architecture, at unique locations offering guests a personalised service.
Located in the heart of Fatimid Cairo, Le Riad brings luxury boutique accommodation to the city’s oldest neighbourhood. Amongst the narrow streets, covered markets and timeworn buildings, Le Riad is inspired by the history and culture of its surroundings making it an ideal launch pad to discover the mysteries of the old city.
Le Riad is the brainchild of Veronique Sedro, whose passion is reflected in every detail of the design; and the industrious Youssef Takla whose dedication and hard work are behind the creation of this unique boutique hotel. Sedro and Takla transformed the 160s apartment block into the Old Cairo’s one and only luxury boutique hotel.
Each of Le Riad’s seventeen uniquely designed suites boast a private balcony with views of the famous Beit El Sehemy and its exceptional Ottoman architecture. Each suite is a reflection of Old Town Cairo architecture, interpreted in rich warm colours adorned with Fatimid fabrics and local artwork and paintings, dating back to a bygone era.
At Le Riad guests receive a myriad of modern day comforts in addition to luxurious amenities, a personalized butler service, complimentary WIFI access to name just a few. What’s more, guests at Le Riad are invited to sample traditional Egyptian cooking at their roof top terrace restaurant Zahir.
