Best Luxury Hotels In Cairo

Cairo has long been a city of wonderment and mystery, and its rich history and cultural vibrancy make it an exciting place to explore. The iconic pyramids of Giza, standing proudly against the backdrop of the desert, invite travellers to discover the stories of ancient civilisations, while the bustling markets and somewhat chaotic charm of Khan El Khalili promise an insight into the Egyptian way of life, and the sounds of Muezzin’s calls to prayer echo through the air weaving their way through the intricate minarets that dot the skyline. Be warned, this city is busy (it has over 22 million inhabitants) and it never stops so be ready for action, however, if you are seeking a place pulsing with energy and you can keep up, Cairo may just be the perfect city break for you and we have a great selection of luxury hotels from which to choose. Some of the best, are those that offer green spaces, roof top terraces with sea or Nile views. Read on to discover more.
