The main advantage of the Pyramisa Cairo Hotel is undoubtedly its central location, close to the Egyptian Museum, the opera, Cairo Tower, and the Khan El Khalili souk. The neighbourhood also includes a vast selection of restaurants and shops where you can taste Egyptian specialties or buy anything you might need. The hotel doesn't count many Europeans among its clientele; the majority of guests at the Pyramisa is made up of locals, which will give you the opportunity of totally immersing yourself in this fascinating culture. The building is rather big but also quite old and a bit noisy. The marble-clad entrance hall is both majestic and huge, and the interior decor of the hotel is oriental in style. There is a huge difference between the rooms that have been renovated and those that are still waiting their turn. When you book, don't hesitate to insist on having a renovated room, as these afford the nicer view.
