In Cairo there are some fabulous luxury places to stay. This is mainly becuase it gets so many tourists. There is a famous place called the Meridean. It over looks the Nile and is fit for a star!
I am not sure of the exact price range but for one of the best hotels in Egypt I think it's going to be quite expensive!

It is so unique because of it's location and is so beautiful inside and out! It had marble floors when you enter and beautiful stairs. It all seems to be perfect. One thing I remember is at the reception on the wall is the time of each country!

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!
