The Windsor Hotel is an oasis of tranquillity amid the bustle of downtown Cairo. The Windsor is also a venerable Cairo institution and boasts a rich history and warm hospitality.
Built at the turn of the century as the baths of the Egyptian royal family, the Windsor served for many years as a colonial British officers club before being purchased by a Swiss hotelier as an annex of the legendary Shepherds Hotel and converted into the 'Hotel Windsor-Maison Suisse.' Today, the Windsor's guestrooms retain an ambiance of faded grandeur and the hotel's famous Barrel Bar remains a popular Cairo rendezvous.
More recently, the Hotel has been featured in a number of Egyptian and Hollywood films.
