Cairo is a must for anyone fascinated by the magnificent Great Pyramids and the Sphinx of Giza. Situated on the Nile, Cairo is exciting, vibrant and fascinating; it is a perfect blend of old and new. Take time to explore the treasures of Tutankhamen in the Egyptian museum or take a stroll around the bustling Khan El Khalili bazaar. Away from the city centre, there is still more to see from the capital of ancient Egypt at Memphis to the Step Pyramid at Saqqara.
An elegant hotel, opened in 1869 and formerly a royal hunting lodge. Luxuriously furnished with arabesque furniture, carved brass-bound doors and fine antiques, it is an oasis of calm set in 40 acres of jasmine-scented gardens.
Close by the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, 20 minutes by car to central Cairo.
