Barcelo Cairo Pyramids, Cairo, Egypt

Our rating: Medium

With 187 hotels worldwide, the Barceló Cairo Pyramids is the Spanish owned chain's first offering in Egypt. The hotel is situated on one of the most famous streets of the Middle East, the Pyramids Road, which is just a few kilometers from the Giza Plateau. Although this good value hotel is fairly simple, the mixture of traditional and modern styles provide a pleasant contrast to many of the more bland international hotels in the city. The rooms, pool area and restaurants are thoughtfully designed and the hotel makes a good base for a short stay the city.
