Top tips for finding the perfect Cairo hotel

A trip to Cairo is not complete without a visit to the Giza pyramid complex, otherwise known as one of the most famous archaeological sites in the world. If you plan on visiting the pyramids during your stay in the city, book a hotel nearby, such as the Pyramids Overlook Inn which, as the name suggests, offers breath-taking views of the archaeological masterpieces.
If you are a history enthusiast, make sure to select a hotel within walking distance of the Egyptian Museum, such as the Nile Ritz-Carlton. The Egyptian Museum covers over 5,000 years of history and contains artefacts related to a multitude of time periods, including Tutankhamun's treasures.
Hoping to do some shopping during your stay in Cairo? If so, choose a hotel near Khan el-Khalili, a large outdoor bazaar that has vendors selling jewellery, clothing, spices, and other assorted souvenirs. The Arabian Nights Hotel is located a 9-minute walk away from Khan el-Khalili and is a 12-minute walk away from the Al-Azhar Mosque.
To see a particularly scenic side of Cairo, pick a hotel that is close to the Cairo Tower, such as the chic Hotel Novotel Cairo El Borg. Known for being Cairo’s tallest building, Cairo Tower is composed of over 8 million mosaic pieces and has a revolving restaurant that allows visitors to see panoramic views of the entire city.
If you enjoy performing arts, book a hotel near the Cairo Opera House, such as the 5-star Hotel Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah. The Cairo Opera House is in a landmark building that contains a museum, music library, art gallery, and several different performing theatres, making it an impressive sight to behold.
