Day 22 – Long Ride to Cairo

A travel blog entry by meckley


Today was our last full day in Egypt. After breakfast, we loaded up the van and started the long journey to Cairo. We stopped in Marsa Matruh to see Cleopatra's bath. There isn’t much left, but the tidal pools were nice to walk around.

We made a few stops in el Alamain to see the memorials to the WW II battles that were fought here.< …

Day 18 – More Pyramids

A travel blog entry by meckley


Just like AMTRAK, the train was over an hour late getting into Giza Station. We were met by Saggy and quickly put in our van. We were on a crazy ride to Dahshur to see the Red and Bent Pyramids. These pyramids have only recently been open to the public. It used to be on military property. Both pyramids were built by Snefru, father of Khufu who …

Day 10 - On the Red Sea

A travel blog entry by meckley


We had to be out of our room by 2:00, so we got up early. We swam and snorkeled for a few hours and then got ready to go. I have heard about this fashion faux pax before, but I have never seen it. I truly believe that there are some people who simply do not belong in a bikini. I have seen some things that I really did not need to see. There were …

Upgrade, what upgrade?

Our last day in Egypt was spent:

in transit flying from Abu Simbel to Cairo

in traffic from the airport to our hotel

at the Hard Rock café using their free wifi (because it cost $20/hour in our 5 star hotel), where I should have known better than to eat anything, but I hadn't eaten for a couple of days, & what harm …

The cradle of civilisation

A travel blog entry by callyblackie


TRAFFIC! And more traffic. That was our first impression of Cairo. We thought Istanbul had traffic. That was child's play compared to this. There’s no speeding on the motorway – too much traffic. The driver told us Cairo doesn’t have a peak hour, they have a peak day! The roads are busy from 7am until 10pm. If there are 2 marked …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Nile Tower Cairo

    Very good choice


    Stayed in the Hyatt for 4 nights and found it to be an excellent choice having seen some other hotels in Cairo like the Hilton whihc is quite dated.

    Mixed, but mostly positive feelings


    My partner and I stayed for a week in Cairo Grand Hyatt, and enjoyed our stay. I agree actually with almost all reviews below: yes, the facilities are great; yes, the locations is very good; yes, the service is really not too good, even sometimes bad (even though always very friendly, which perhaps is the reason for an overall positive picture).

    Club services not up to scratch


    My wife and I stayed in this hotels club room.Grand Hyatt, Cairo advertises with "butler wake up call with tea/coffee".However this was not available and particularly as there were no coffee and tea making facilities in the room, it meant either ordering it through room service or going down to the club lounge for it.

    Most hotels, if not all hotels we have stayed in, when guests of club rooms, allow the option of breakfast in the main restaurant but not this hotel. This meant having to have the same monotonous breafast each morning.

    The restaurants are lovely though by the Nile.

    Good facilities but average service


    The hotel has a superb location next to River Nile. It also has abundant facilities. However, the service is not great, not great at all, for a Grand Hyatt in particular. One would also experience heavy traffic jam right outside the hotel because of the cramp hotel entrance, especially on Thursday night during which the Egyptians would likely hold wedding party there.

    Superb location for Nile enthusiasts


    Location is superb, right on the Nile River, with excellent river views from most of the rooms. A spacious lobby with a terrace-like feeling, making one feel as if right on the banks of the river. Standard rooms are not big, at least compared to those in 5-star hotels in other parts of the world, but they are well-equiped and the views more than compensate for lack of space. Breakfast was very good, though not unforgettable. The entrance ramp is too small for such a big hotel and it tends to get crammed with buses and taxis. Getting in the hotel through the security portal can take a few minutes if a group has just arrived before you, but once you are in the hotel lobby, claustophobia disappears. The swimming pool looked beautiful, though I didn't have time to use it.

    Excellent hotel!


    My family and I stayed at the Grand Hyatt Cairo during a 4 day visit to the city. We found the hotel to be excellent. I am a very frequent traveller and found it to be one of the best hotels I have experienced. It is located on a small peninsula that extends into the Nile off of a major thoroughfare. The arrangement of the hotel and the geometry of the peninsula gives everyone in the hotel a view of the river and the city. The layout also gives an added degree of security and makes the hotel less noisy than some of the others on the Nile since the entrance to the peninsula is restricted. The hotel is directly across the street from the Four Seasons Nile Plaza (the Hyatt is on the Nile while the Four Seasons is across a very busy street from the Nile).

    Terrific hotel & location


    had a great time here in late january/early february. the hotel is only 4 years old and maintained to perfection. the location is in the garden city district of cairo and so is out of the madness a bit. short cab ride to everything. right along the corniche (great for walking) on an island in the nile, so all rooms have great views. the hard rock cafe is right next door and the 4 seasons across the bridgeway. the rooftop restuarant is revolving and there are several others on the groundflr, even outside dining on the river. stayed 8 nights during 2 different stays and the staff were great, even remembering us on the second stay. most of the clientele seem to be from other arab countries, but as you will find all over cairo, everyone involved with the tourist industry speaks both arabic, english and a third language of their choice. this hotel would be a 5 star hotel in america.

    Excellent Choice


    A fantastic hotel. Located on the Nile with beautiful views, large rooms and connected to a shopping mall. Excellent choice of restaurants, very nice outdoor pool area and good fitness facility. An easy 15 minute walk to the Egyptian Museum.
