Lonely Planet review
Formerly known as the Nile Hilton, this midcentury-built modern monolith has been around long enough that its sleek concrete look is coming back into style. Fortunately, the recent renovation that accompanied its corporate rebranding has made the Nile Hotel more attractive than ever. The unbeatable location, off Midan Tahrir and adjacent to the Egyptian Museum, completes the package.
Our independent authors have visited Nile Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Cairo.
