Easily recognised among Downtown’s many iconic buildings, long-standing luxury hotel, The Nile Ritz-Carlton, has witnessed so many eras of the city, that it has become a landmark in its own right. The 61-year-old hotel has always been a synonym for excellent hospitality, hosting several international household names including American politician Nelson Rockefeller, and artists like Jane Russell, Elizabeth Taylor, and Mr Blue Eyes himself, Frank Sinatra.

Indeed, the hotel’s walls have witnessed an endless trail of memories of some of Cairo’s most lavish events. One ballroom that has seen it all is The Nile Ritz-Carlton Cairo’s Alf Leila We Leila, where many of the city’s lovebirds from the 60s and 70s celebrated their happily-ever-after moments among a breathtaking setting of glistening chandeliers and luxuriously upholstered walls.

Turning back time is impossible, but The Nile Ritz-Carlton revives the ballroom’s good old days, opening its doors to host your weddings. The vast Alf Leila We Leila, which, accommodates up to 600 guests, is ready for weddings of all shapes and sizes as the adjustable ballroom can be divided into three different venues, which is perfect for pre-wedding ceremonies, intimate receptions, and more.  

What’s a wedding without the traditional Egyptian Zaffa? The Nile Ritz-Carlton cherishes the country’s heritage, and proudly presents its historic staircase that has delivered over 50,000 brides to their grooms.

Having witnessed these many weddings doesn’t mean you can’t have a unique wedding at Alf Leila We Leila Ballroom; the hotel’s expert team of event planners know what it takes to make every single wedding special. The team will guide you through the process of choosing your preferred setting, theme, flower arrangements, and more.

When it comes to food and menus, there’s no need to worry, because the hotel’s very own Executive Chef, Bugra Keles, and Pastry Chef Jean, Francois Lavialle, will lavish your guests with some of their best culinary creations.
