We are located on the banks of the river Nile in the downtown area, within walking distance of the major shopping, commercial and diplomatic areas of Cairo.
Old Cairo is probably one of the most fascinating parts of town. It contains the oldest buildings going back to the years 800. It is also home to one of the largest and oldest bazaars in the world the Khan al Khalili. Old Cairo is 10 minutes away from the hotel by coach.
Closer to the hotel is the Egyptian Museum, a 5-minute walk. The museum contains all of the pharaonic history of the country. The downtown and garden city areas are around the hotel and offer a fascinating insight into art deco architecture constructed during the occupation by the French and the British at the turn of the century. 5 minutes by taxi is the old palace of the last King of Egypt, a fascinating step back in time.
The Cairo international airport is located 25 KM North-East to the hotel, within 45-60 minutes drive away.
