Le Riad Hotel de Charme is located at 114 El Moez Ldin Allah el Fatimy (shortened to 114 El Moez Street) in the El Gamaleya district of central Cairo. The surrounding area is one of Cairo's most charming, with covered markets, narrow streets, old buildings and mosques. Of Old Cairo, this quarter most evokes its past and in many ways has changed very little. It has inspired many writings, from Arabian nights to the works of the modern Nobel Laureate Naguib Mahfouz. Getting enjoyably lost amongst the winding alleys while walking from the hotel to the nearby Khan-el-Khalili bazaar is one of the pleasures of staying here.
Access is easiest from the Bab al Futuh (Conquest Gate), one of three remaining gates in the walls of the Old City of Cairo, which is 350m north of the hotel on El Moez Street. Journey times to Cairo airport vary hugely depending on the time of day and traffic levels, so we advise allowing one hour before you want to be at the airport. Arrival and departure airport transfers are available.
