Cairo Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Cairo

From city-centre hotel rooms to large-scale luxury resorts, Cairo is a city that caters for all kinds of tastes. It has something to suit all budgets - whether you’re looking to tick-off bucket list sights as cheaply as possible or treating yourself to a luxurious city holiday.

Home to thousands of years of history, Egypt’s capital city is a destination that’s brimming with culture and eclectic stories on every corner. It’s a must-visit for culture-lovers thanks to its close proximity to the famous Pyramids, while the Nile snaking its way through the city provides endless opportunities for local and faraway cruises. If you’re looking for a holiday destination that’ll please all the senses, then Cairo ticks all the boxes.

Where to stay

Haram

Those holidaying in Cairo with the Giza pyramids in mind may want to stay in the Haram neighbourhood - otherwise known as the Pyramids District. Accommodation is mostly mid-budget and affordable, although there is the possibility to splash out on 5-square luxury. Many of the accommodation options around this area will benefit from incredible views over the Pyramids, and are well situated for trips further afield to Saqqara and Dahshur.

Zamalek

A full range of hotels to suit all holiday budgets can be found in Zamalek. The district is found on Gezira Island in the heart of the city, with branches of the Nile river on either side. Owing to its popularity with expats, the island has plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops on its doorstep, while the Cairo Tower is also slap bang in the middle. It’s relatively quiet during the week, although at the weekends it’s a popular place for tourists to head to.

New Cairo

Located to the east of the city, New Cairo, also known as the Fifth Settlement, offers a less frenzied vibe. Although it’s home to a few company headquarters, the district is fairly residential. Hotels are large in scale, often featuring outdoor pools and spas for those who are seeking a peaceful getaway. It’s also an area that has plenty of shopping opportunities, with Cairo Festival City and Concorde Plaza Mall offering both shops and those all-important food stops.

What to see

The Giza pyramid complex will be on the radar of most travellers to Cairo. It’s home to some of the most recognisable sights from your school history lesson, including the three Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx. The complex can be visited independently or you can opt to take a half or full-day tour to explore the entire site in detail. A visit to the observation deck at the top of Cairo Tower, the tallest in Egypt, will give you unparalleled views out across the sprawling metropolis and beyond.

Of course, the Nile is the heartbeat of Cairo - as such, it’s impossible to visit on holiday without getting onboard a boat to see the city from a completely different perspective. Options are plentiful, depending on how much time you can spare; there’s everything from an evening dinner cruise to a multi-day journey over to Luxor and Aswan. Those looking to get their fill of history will also love a tour around Old Cairo. Despite its relatively small size, the area has lots to see - including the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization and the Coptic Museum.

Nightlife

Despite being home to swaths of ancient history, Cairo is no stranger to raucous nightlife. There’s everything from jazz clubs to pubs, rooftop terraces and casinos, catering for all kinds of evening entertainment. Both on dinner cruises and within hotel resort is where you’ll find a number of traditional belly dancing shows which are a must-see before you head back home. For partying into the early hours of the morning, check out the venues around 6th October Bridge - there’s even one club, Zigzag, that’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

What to eat

If you only try one thing in Cairo, make sure it’s koshary. As Egypt’s national dish, it’s available all over the city, and is popular with locals and tourists alike. Made with rice, lentils, macaroni, chickpeas, onion and a tomato-vinegar sauce, the dish is hearty enough to keep you full for hours! While in Cairo, take the opportunity to try some traditional shawarma from one of the many street carts dotted around. For something a little sweeter, order Om Ali, a bread pudding that’s made using pastry, nuts, raisins and cinnamon.

Shopping

Cairo offers a selection of modern and historic shopping opportunities. For a wander around national and international stores, head to one of the city’s grand shopping centres such as Cairo Festival City Mall. It’s got virtually everything you need under one roof, from department stores to clothes shops via stationery stores and electronics. If you’re wanting to get a feel for the authentic shopping vibes of Cairo, make sure you head to Khan el-Khalili, a souk that’s based in Old Cairo. There are dozens of stalls dedicated to selling everything from souvenirs through to homeware.
