  • Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino

    Situated in the pulsating heart of downtown Cairo, the Cairo Marriott Hotel forms the perfect base from which to explore. It also offers all the mod cons you could want and need, from ultra-fast Wi-Fi and air conditioning to a wide range of eateries suited to every palate. It’s a stone’s throw from the Egyptian Museum and the Khan el-Khalili bazaar. Oh, and did we mention prime views over the Nile?

  • Kempinski Nile Hotel Garden City Cairo

    Towering above the shimmering Nile River, a stay at the Kempinski Nile Hotel ensures that you’re never too far from the main attractions in Cairo. After a busy day of exploring, there’s really no better place to put your feet up. Comfort is the name of the game here, with a list of added features like the Jazz Bar, rooftop pool and Chocolate Lounge. Yes, you read right! This hotel has its own Chocolate Lounge!

  • Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at Nile Plaza

    Welcome to one of the finest residences in the city. The Four Seasons Hotel lives up to its reputation of high-calibre service and swanky suites.  It also boasts a stellar location, and there’s really no better place to kick off your shoes and watch the city change colour at sunset. When you’re in the mood for a quick dip, head upstairs to the three-tiered rooftop pool – no kids are allowed here if that’s your travel preference. 

Frequently asked questions

While there are plenty of ways to get around Cairo, car transport is convenient and easy to organise, if not quick – it’s always peak hour in Cairo. Prepare for some short walks between sites, as it may be quicker than driving!

You could tick off all the major landmarks in two or three days, but why rush? Allow yourself four or five days to take in Cairo at a more relaxing pace. 

The best time to visit Cairo is from October to April, when the sun’s out but it’s not stiflingly hot. If very hot and arid temperatures aren’t your thing you may want to avoid the height of summer in Egypt (June / July).

Visit the Pyramids of Giza, get a selfie with the Sphinx, wander the Egyptian Museum, take coffee and haggle at Khan al Khalili and sail the River Nile. You will not want for things to do in Cairo!

Comfortable shoes and clothing are essential in Cairo, as it can get hot and you’ll likely be doing some walking.
