Cairo Hotels

 

Cairo is the African Continent’s largest city and is a unique blend of the old and the new.

The city is spread out from east to west, from north to south and serves as a crossroads for travelers from Asia to Europe and vise versa. There are many types of accommodations to choose from grand and luxurious hotels and resorts to more low-key hostels and apartelles.
With each succession of Egyptian rulers, more cities were built away from the old ones and the city of Cairo, when viewed from the air, took on the shape of a question mark starting from the oldest part of the city in the south.
 

It then takes a curving northward direction to Fustat, turns east to Cairo’s Islamic population, and terminates west to the Downtown District where it stretched onto Liberation Square.The center of Cairo is slated to change location as expansion within the city is inevitable.

 

Yet despite modernization come parts of the city maintain its nostalgic air.

 

Islamic Cairo has medieval precincts where families go to eat and smoke during Ramadan after a whole day of fasting.

 

The Citadel and Mohamed Ali’s Mosque are some of the Islamic monuments found in this area. The Hanging Church and Ben Ezra Synagogue are not to be missed in Old Cairo.

 

For exotic shopping, visit the Khan el-Khalili Bazaar. If shopping’s not your thing, you might find the putting near the pyramids in any of the many golf courses scattered in the area. There are also places where you can dress up like the ancient Egyptians to have your photos taken and such. There are also any number of museums you can visit or factories where they show you how to make those beautiful tapestries Egypt is famous for.
 

 

 

Winters in Cairo are mild while summers are hot and dry and spring brings in sandstorms. But inclement weather is not a big problem in a city such as Cairo as accommodations here are numerous and customized to any budget. There are pension houses with historical significance and antique ambience for those with an eye on the dollar. For those with money to burn, there are luxury hotels a-plenty fitted with state-of-the-art modern amenities.
 
Hotels in Cairo

Many of the 5-star hotels in Cairo are reasonably priced and have passed international standards. But for those searching for authentic Egyptian settings, these accommodations may be rather disappointing as most of them are modernized and do not have an Old World atmosphere.

But if you are looking for convenience, most of these hotels are situated near areas of interest such as museums and monuments.

 

Guided tours are recommended as you can get quite overwhelmed with everything there is to see.

 

Nothing says luxury more than a hotel that overlooks the River Nile, Egypt’s most famous attraction. Most hotels near the Nile are just a few minutes walk to the Opera House and the most popular tourist occupation---shopping!
 

 

 

Don’t miss a chance to visit the world famous Egyptian Museum and see King Tut himself along with the artifacts found in his tomb.
