Visiting Cairo – A City Guide

Egypt’s largest city stretches along the winding Nile River, an energetic metropolis seamlessly integrating the old and new. Gleaming skyscrapers and shopping malls sit alongside serene mosques and lively bazaars, while distant views of the Giza pyramids are a constant reminder of the city’s ancient heritage.

Cairo’s city layout

Wherever you stay in Cairo, the city’s pleasures and history await.

The downtown area, Midan El Tahrir, has 19th-century architecture and a concentration of modern Cairo hotels. The district’s heart is Tahrir Square, site of festivals, events, and protests. East of downtown, Islamic Cairo’s warren of twisting streets is home to medieval buildings, historic mosques and lively souks (markets).

Zamalek, on the Nile’s Gezira Island, now offers boutique hotels, fine dining and nightlife. South of downtown are the embassies of Garden City, plus Old Cairo, with many Coptic Christian sites.

Cairo’s top attractions

Apart from the pyramids, the Egyptian Museum is Cairo’s biggest attraction. More than 120,000 artifacts here span 5,000 years of Egypt’s history, and include Tutankhamun’s life-size gold funerary mask. You can redeem IHG® Reward Club points for a stay at the InterContinental® Cairo Semiramis, right on the Nile, a short walk from the museum and Tahrir Square.

Zamalek’s 613-foot Cairo Tower resembles a lotus flower; its observation deck offers panoramic views of the city and the pyramids. On Muqattam Hill, the Citadel of Cairo was home to Egypt’s rulers for 700 years. Within the fortified complex is the 19th-century alabaster Mosque of Muhammad Ali. Another favorite pastime is to drift along the Nile on a traditional felucca sailboat.

Visiting the Pyramids of Giza

Only 11 miles from downtown, the Pyramids of Giza honor the kings Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure. Guarded by the Great Sphinx, the structures date to 2,584 BC. You can tour the site on horseback and watch the pyramids glow at sunrise or sunset. An ideal Cairo hotel for exploring Giza is the Holiday Inn: Cairo Maadi, which sits beside the Nile in suburban Maadi, with panoramic pyramid views across the river.

Eating in Cairo

Cairo’s hotel restaurants are among the city’s best dining options, but fine-dining spots and street vendors alike offer high-quality dishes. Zamalek is the spot for trendy, upscale food and international cuisine. In Islamic Cairo, you can sip mint tea at a café after taking in the sights and aromas of the local fruit, vegetable and spice markets.

Cairo’s favorite specialties include: hamam mahshi, roast pigeon stuffed with rice, wheat and herbs; koshary, a blend of spaghetti, rice, black lentils, chickpeas and garlic topped with spicy tomato sauce (a popular street food); and taamiya, Egyptian falafel made with fava beans.

Shopping in Cairo

Cairo was a key stop on the 15th-century spice-trade route. Many souks selling local spices and gold still operate today. In Islamic Cairo, browse hundreds of stalls at the famed medieval souk, Khan al-Khalili. Charming vendors in crowded alleys beckon you to colorful stacks of clothing, jewelry and spices.

For a more modern shopping experience, the Citystars megamall has more than 600 stores, indoor theme parks and a multiplex. We offer three hotels in this sprawling Cairo complex: the spa-like Intercontinental: Citystars Cairo; the family-friendly Holiday Inn: Cairo Citystars; and the apartment-style Staybridge Suites: Cairo Citystars.

Nice Hotel on a beautiful view
By Ymn Boss
This hotel is actually nice. The rooms are a bit outdated, but everything was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff are amazing and accommodating! I have a bad experience with the 4th floor [More] restaurant. The food wasn’t good ( cold, bland), the bar tender lacks the experience to make mixed drinks and the service is not friendly nor welcoming. I recommend to have female servers or make the existing male servers more friendly to customers and to check on tables every once a while. [Less]
Wonderful stay on the Nile
By HishamS
I recommend Semiramis Intercontinental to everyone. It is a gem on the Nile. Every time I stay there I feel relaxed and totally isolated from stress. [Less]
