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.
