I cannot comment on the hotel, as I stayed with a friend, but I do have a couple of other recommendations on things to see
- Aside from the Giza pyramids, visit the ones at Saqqara - older than Giza, you can see the development of the design.
- I stayed in Maadi, and used the metro to get to and from downtown (1LE - £0.10 per ride). I also visited Coptic Cairo, an interesting quarter, and the Nile Meter, on the tip of Rhoda Island
- The Citadel, including the military museum
- We ate at TGI Fridays one evening, overlooking the Nile, in Maadi. Nice views, standard food though. We also took a ride on a felucca, traditional sailing boat (bring your own beer!)
Not much to go on, I'm afraid, but have fun! Note that the grand bazaar / souk, you will be hassled constantly, unless you sit at a cafe for a drink. A friend of a friend claimed not to speak English, only Basque - no fear, the traders found a Basque speaker to hassle him...
