honeymoon in Cairo

We decided to honeymoon in Cairo and stayed at the Sofitel. Beautiful on the inside, even though the entrance to the hotel gives another impression. Before entering the hotel, I was disappointed, but loved the inside. Within walking distance of downtown. Great place for a hustle and bustle kind of honey moon.
