Cairo Marriott Palace, built...
Cairo Marriott Palace, built as it is around a magnificent royal residence that was constructed, and with no expense spared, on the orders of the Khedive Ismail, to mark the opening of the Suez Canal, in 1869. Elegantly detailed and lovingly restored, its antique-adorned interior forms the core of a grand hotel which marries traditional grace with the contemporary panache of dramatic twin towers offering the finest of modern accomodations. The setting is fittingly grand--amid six acres of lush and tranquil gardens on an island of the mighty river Nile, at the very heart of Cairo. The Cairo Marriott Hotel & Casino brings a whole new dimension to the art of good living; 12 high speed lift whisks guests to the cosseting comfort of 1,250 luxury rooms, including executive and corporate suites, in addition to seven presidential suites--all tastefully furnished and equipped to the most demanding international standards.

IBEROTEL Grand Sharm El Sheikh: Divine!
IBEROTEL Grand Sharm... after all the dusty desert roads and armed checkpoints from Cairo to Sharm El Sheikh... this was one Oasis I will never forget.
This extensive and newly built four-story resort hotel, on the edge of the Red Sea, invites you to relax on your beach vacation in an exotic atmosphere with the cultural sights and sounds that you would expect to enjoy on a trip to this ancient land.
Tastefully furnished you can choose rooms with a sea, pool or garden view. Each room features a balcony or terrace... perfect for watching the sunrise over the Red Sea!
Our room was equipped with shower/WC/bidet, air conditioning/heating, direct-dial telephone, satellite TV, mini-bar, hairdryer and safe. I've heard this is a standard feature in the rest of the hotel rooms too.
Room service is available 24 hours a day.

THE MENA HOUSE...
THE MENA HOUSE OBEROI
Pyramid's Road. Giza. Cairo. Tel: +20 2 383 3222 Fax: +20 2 383 7777
If you can afford it, this mytical hotel is a real luxury. One of the joys of staying at the Mena House Oberoi is that as may of Egypt's magnificent treasures are but a stone's throw away. The Sphinx is literally on the other side of the golf course, and the site of the Step Pyramid of Zoser and the legendary Tomb of Ti only a little further.
In its 40 acres of jasmine scented gardens with the Great Pyramid towering above, the Mena House has seen enchanting distinguished guests ever since it opened in 1869. There's even an old story the staff love to tell about a guest who asked where the Pharaohs stayed when they were building their Pyramids. 'At the Mena House of course, where else?' was the happy reply. Beautiful and arabesque furniture inlaid with mother of pearl, hand-crafted mosaic tiles, exquisitely carved brass-bound wood doors, original works of art and magnificent antiques all speak of a degree of care and attention to detail rarely found in a modern hotel. Though barely 20 minutes by car from the center of Cairo, the Mena House Oberoi is a positive oasis of quiet good taste, luxurious living and delightfully attentive staff.

I stayed at the Cairo...
I stayed at the Cairo Marriott, in Zamalek. I'm not sure I can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel, but at least the neighborhood and the hotel's courtyard area were nice. Although multiple people familiar with the city told me that the Marriott is the best hotel in Cairo, I was underwhelmed by the run-down rooms and really poor food at the restaurants. Usually I am not the type to stick to hotel restaurants at all, but since I was traveling alone and didn't feel all that comfortable eating by myself in this city, I caved in and ate at the hotel. Big mistake. The food was terrible.
I spent about US$130 per night at this hotel.
The Marriott does have a great view of the Nile and the city, and on a clear-ish day you can spot the Pyramids from the upper floors. This photo was taken out the window of the hotel. Another great feature is the hotel's courtyard, which is a great place to sit and take in 'haute Cairo' enjoying a day in the sun. It's one of those places where if you don't have a tiny cell phone and a big pair of dark sunglasses, you feel like there's something wrong with you. Still, it's very entertaining and a good way to relax for a few hours.

On my first trip to Cairo, I stayed at the Noran Hotel, 13 Mohamed Khalak Street. Given that this was in 1994, I will give the number I have for it but it may not be up-to-date: 20-2-360-4448 or -4447. It was a nice place and relatively cheap. The second trip I stayed at a very, very nice hotel that was within walking distance of the pyramids. I raved about the hotel in my journal but failed to write down its name, however. I will try to locate in my mess of travel stuff someday so I can post it here, but that will be quite an undertaking!

Well, I just stayed at the Youth Hostel most of the time, which was fairly basic, but i met some lovely people there. I also stayed at Rose Hotel on Sharia Talaat Halb for a couple of nights... that was when I found out about a fascinating anatomical display at University. Not for the faint hearted! Hmm....
For good accomodation, I have to say the Marriot looked rather appealing!

In Cairo you can find many...
In Cairo you can find many hotels of different quality and price. I must admit that I do not prefer hotels located in the Pyramids area because they are far off the centre of Cairo. All you have there are the Pyramids, nothing else.
Starting with Five Stars Hotels:
Marriott Hotel - located in the centre of Cairo, on the island Zamalek, Sarayah al Gezira Street, close to Cairo tower. The hotel's basis was built as a royal residence for the opening of Suez Chanal in 1869. It's very much modified today with modern towers surrounding the old palace of Khedive Ismail. To me it's the best hotel in Cairo.
Le Meridien - downtown Cairo (there is another one in Heliopolis). A beautiful hotel, located at the northern point of Roda Island, right at the banks of the Nile. Great panorama view over the downtown Cairo Nile area.
Nile Hilton - located at Midan (= place) Tahrir, right of the Egyptian Museum. In the very heart of the city, but needs a renovation, very nice inside courtyard with terrasse bar (minimum charge!).
Ramses Hilton - located behind the Egyptian Museum. Everything quite proper but very much unpersonal.
Mena House - located right in front of the Pyramids. It even includes an old palace from the opening of Suez Canal, once built for the French Emperess Eugenie. Hotel is very large with a nice garden area. If you pay a lot of money and stay in the rooms of the old palace it's great. If you pay normal price and stay in long buildings around the garden - don't do it! These rooms are not worth the money, everything is focused on masses.
Moevenpick Pyramids Hotel - if you want to stay near the Pyramids take this one. It's much better than Mena House, with modern and very good Moevenpick management, not more expensive and you can see the Pyramids as well.
Salam Hotel - it's located in Heliopolis, at Gizr as Suweis Street. Heliopolis is a modern part of the city (with 2.5 million inhabitants) with very beautiful areas. The hotel has 19th century flair, it's very calm with a beautiful garden.
There are several Four Stars Hotels, many of them located at Pyramids Street in Giza. I.e. Green Pyramids, they are quite ok, but I would prefer lower or higher category.
Victoria Hotel - is located in the centre of Cairo, close to Esbekiyya place (15 min by foot from Midan Tahrir and the Egyptian Museum). It's proper and good, no luxury but everything you need. Costs about $20-30 per night and rooms (may be a bit more now?!)
Tulip Hotel - located in the very centre at Midan Tala'at Harb, just 5 min from Midan Tahrir. Small and very cheap hotel, still proper, equipment is ok, only few rooms with bathroom included, otherwise bathroom on the floor. Breakfast is poor - Egyptians don't eat a lot in the morning. Price about $10.
