Cairo Marriott Hotel & Omar Khayyam Casino

Hotel in Cairo
Image by

Historical atmosphere is thick in the lobby and public areas, which all occupy a 19th-century palace. The rooms, though, are all in two modern towers; many have tiny bathrooms, but touches like plasma-screen TVs and extra-plush beds make up for them. It also has a popular garden cafe – a great place to people-watch – and a good pool.
