Hotel recommendations

In September I’ll be traveling to Hurghada for a scuba liveaboard. Afterwards I’ll have a Sat afternoon, and all day Sunday in Cairo before a flight at 2am Monday.

My goal is to see the Egyptian Museum, Khan El-Kalili, and lPyramids in Giza during this time. I’d like a good location for these, and ideally some western food as I’ll prob be missing food from home after 7 nights at sea.

Looking at the Holiday Inn CityStars. Any other good recommendations?

You may find City Stars out of the way / inconvenient for what you want to do.

Personally I would proostay downtown in any of the places already suggested, enjoy the evening either on the Nile or around it. Because of traffic on a Sunday I would head first to the pyramids, then the museum then Khan el Khalili. You could either go back to the hotel which wouldn’t be far from the souk to collect your bags or hire a car and driver, leave your bags in the car and go straight to the airport.

Sorry Catherine... but I think my suggestion works better... Khan Khalili on Saturday and so not trying to cram too much in on the one day on Sunday...

There’s no right or wrong way to do it, all we can do is give suggestions and each person decides on what works for them... quite often completely different to what was suggested!!

Thank you all for the recommendations. I think I’ll stay closer like most you suggested.

I’ll be landing at 12 on a domestic flight, so assuming it is on time I was planning on dropping stuff off at hotel, then going to museum, then Khan el Kalili. Next day pyramids (early), museum if I needed more time, then shop before going to hotel to shower and head to airport. I’m flying to Dubai-JFK-Tampa to keeping hotel 2 nights so keep bags safe and have shower facilities.
