Whenever I go to Cairo, I always stay at Windsor. It is situated a bit away from the rest of the hotels and is perfect if you want to live in a more popular area but still central. With its quirky elevator, high ceilings, decayed furniture and original switchboard it feels very authentic and boutique but without trying too hard to be so. Make sure you get a room with a balcony onto the quite backstreet so that you have the clatter of backgammon bricks as your background noice. The real gem, though, is the staff, which is genuinely friendly and begins to feel like family once you’ve stayed there a while.
Please visit Egypt these days and support the revolution. Its safe, more welcoming to foreigners than ever, and you have a unique chance of visiting all the historic sites without being in a swarm of tourists.More
