Lonely Planet review
This busy seven-storey palace managed to survive conversion to a midrange place without completely losing its old-fashioned luxury character. The hundred or so rooms still have good parquet floors, and there a few remaining art deco flourishes about, though the shiny white-tile bathrooms are a wonderful modern addition. Entry is around the back in a tiny plaza.
Our independent authors have visited Grand Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Cairo.
