The views from the top of the Cairo Tower are good, you can see a great deal of the city. But, the location isn't great to get to, with nothing else of significance near by. There's not a great deal to do once there, other...More

Stay in a ugly place and don't have any thing to do near it. If you stay in any hotel in the Nile River, you dont need to go here.

Very old fashioned set up with a serviceable elevator and long queue but nonetheless worth it. The view is breathtaking and if you squint very hard in the hard you just might be able to see the shapes of the pyramids.
