In the Area
Cairo is teeming with mysterious wonders and historical gems (starting with, of course, the pyramids and the Sphinx). Within a short drive of the hotel you’ll find the Palace of Baron Empain, built by the founder of the modern Heliopolis area, and Al Kanesah Al Muallaqah (the hanging church), a stunning cathedral laden with mosaics. Shoppers will encounter a number of shopping malls in Cairo, in addition to unusual marketplaces, like the Khan el-Khalili souk for handicrafts and the Street of the Tentmakers—another hub for local artisans. On the other side of town, Saigon restaurant serves Asian fusion with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the Nile. In the evening be sure to catch a traditional belly dance show.
