Where to Stay?
Accommodation, of course, is an important thing you are searching for. There are a number of decent hotels you can stay; they are at a fair price, the rooms are clean and the service is full board. For example, you can stay in al-Azar Hotel (Boutique hotel); it is located in downtown, close to the metro station. The Windsor Hotel also is a perfect place to stay amidst the downtown; it is near to many prominent attractions such as the Egyptian Museum, Opera Square, Khan al Khalili Bazaar, Abdine Palace and the River Nile.
Language in Egypt?
The official language in Egypt is Arabic. It will be better if you learn some Arabic words before traveling; this may give you some protection when dealing with others; especially, money dealings. Moreover, you will be more appreciated and respected by the people there. Try to learn some Arabic numbers to help you when riding a taxi because the license plates in Egypt are in Arabic. If you cannot learn any of these, do not worry because in Egypt; predominantly, in Cairo, many people know English well. Hence, you will always find who helps you and guide you to your destination.
