The Nile Hilton in Cairo doesn’t compare with the Burj in Dubai, but it’s still a comfortable hotel. It’s conveniently located close to the museum and Tahrir Square. It also sits right along the Nile River, so it’s easy to leave the hotel, and, crossing the street while dodging completely insane drivers and their toy cars, walk along the corniche.
But the pyramids were beckoning! I took a cab early on Monday morning out to Giza. The pyramids are easy to get to: they sit right on the outskirts of Cairo.
