"Classic yet modern enough" Shepheard Hotel Tip by dutchwindmill

Shepheard Hotel, Cairo: 213 reviews and 6 photos

Modern-ish building on the Kornish, nicely located not far from the Museum. Inside it's a lot more stylish than on the outside, as they have probably taken cues (and whole ornaments and other items) from the old building.

Unique Qualities: Decent breakfast. Good rooms, if not 100%, still 98% in order.
Rack rate is USD 250. I booked through Green Valley Tours (office at the first floor of the arrivals hall of Cairo Int'l Airport, near the exit) and paid USD 90 for a single room (without bargaining - these guys must also make a living after all).

Address: Corniche El Nil Street, Cairo 11511
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: On the East bank of the Nile, close to the US Embassy.
Phone: 20 2027921000
Price: US$80-120
