Central but tired

Centrally located hotel 5 minutes from Egyptian museum, overlooking the Nile. Room and bathroom were large with 2 kingsize beds and all mod cons. Hotel is clean but in need of an overall updating. Included breakfast was a huge buffet was every imaginable food type. Yes, I would stay here again.

Top Local Tips for Cairo

Al Azhar Park We really enjoyed the fountains and the view of Cairo from this park. It's a great place to go for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Tipping, market shopping Be prepared to tip for just about everything when you go to Egypt. Have lots of small money on you for this. Be prepared to be haggled when you go into the markets. And BARTER!! We usually ended up paying about 5 - 20 % of the original price they asked.

Egypt taxis Do not be intimidated by angry, rude and impatient taxi drivers. Ask hotel reception what you should pay for a trip and stick to it. Get out of the taxi, shut the door and hand over the money. Walk away. If you are a foreigner you are fair game for a rip off. Be polite but firm and fair. Bargin before you leave if you wish but if you know what the fare should be don't waste your breath and pay what you have been told is fair.
