"Take me to the Meridian...." Cairo Favorite Tip by kenmerk

Favorite thing: If you want to go to the Hard Rock Cafe in Cairo for a burger and/or a t-shirt, it is located in the Hyatt hotel, which is one of the tallest buildings right downtown on the Nile...

One would think that taxis drivers would easily know where the Hyatt is, but this is not the case... (I tried 4 or 5 different cabbies)

But if you tell them to take you to the Meridian, they will take you to the Hyatt....(I guess the Hyatt is relatively new there... or used to be called the Meridian or something like that...)

Another strategy would be to say " Take me to the Nile", and then point at it, and say "that tall one over there...."
