A sailboat or "Felucca" ride along the Nile is a very relaxing way to escape the hustle and bustle of the busy streets. Watch the sunset and enjoy some of Egypt's wonderful architecture.

Restaurants Eat Out

  • Deals Restaurant TooTall wrote: This is a very secluded spot just off July 26th in Zamalek. Super low hanging door frame so watch your head walking in. It is always dark and cozy in Deals...the beer is ice cold and I get the feeling when I am there that it is a place where someone who never wanted to be found could go...the service is friendly and they give you free chips to keep you thirsty. Worth a visit. More >>

Bakery & Pastry Shops

  • Pumpkin Family man wrote: I like the way Pumpkin presents itself. I like to color scheme, the logo and the display of cakes looks amazing. It was enough to lure me in and I bought 3 different cakes. The service was polite and I was able to get 3 times a third of a cake so that I could try the different varieties they had. I took the carrot cake, cheese cake and pumpkin cake. They look really great but quite frankly I was quite disappointed when I tried them and so was the rest of my family. We all thought they looked better than they tasted. I might try once more just to be sure that cakes that look that good actually don’t taste that great. Disappointing. More >>
  • La Poire lovesART wrote: La Poire’s bakeries have been catering to Cairo’s sweet tooth for years. Choose from a selection of Middle-Eastern and European pastries, as well as specialty breads and sandwiches. Make sure to arrive early, as most items are sold out by 4pm. Most La Poire branches are only pastry shops, but some have a coffee shop attached, so you can sit and enjoy your delicious pastries on the spot. More >>

  • Ace Club Sha Sha wrote: Ace Club has the atmosphere of a pub with good food, good drinks and a nice crowd most of the time. Prices are very reasonable. There are pool tables and a couple of teams play from there in the BCA League.

  • Galaxy Cinema Wassily wrote: Cinema Galaxy is the real home of the best movies ever... with a great price for the 10 am and 1 am sessions and 30 L.E for other sessions, with sessions up till 1:00 am. It's a great place to enjoy your favorite new movies once they are released in Egypt. The cinema itself is organized, with a great cafeteria where you can buy your favorite snack for the movie... POPCORN and other products. The Cinema halls itself are very clean and very comfortable and the staff are very friendly and they are always happy to help you with any problem you may have. The sound isolation is very well designed (since I am an architecture student, I pay attention to these things) so you don’t feel echo or sounds from another movie next to you. One of the best Cinema places in Egypt. More >>

Fitness Centers

  • Algotherm Red Sea Thalasso & Spa Mohamed Salah wrote: A friend of mine recommended this SPA and told me it is the best in Hurghada. So i thought i could use some massage. I went there and had a 50 minutes massage and was not disappointed at all. The massage was more than perfect. After the massage i thought that it is over and time to go back but i discovered something very nice, i was allowed to use all the facilities in the SPA: 1. Thalasso whirlpool, for those who don't know it is a special kind of medical salt that treat the skin. 2. Sauna 3. Steam 4. Jaccuzi 5. Aroma bath 6. Turkish bath 7. Relaxing room, it is a room where there is very dimmed lights, light music, and herbal drinks only no tea no coffee So it turned out after the massage that i could actually do a "day use" inside this SPA... AMAZING!!! Simply one of the best SPA's all over Egypt. Big time! Price for all of the above including 50 minutes massage was about 300 pounds... I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for relaxation.... More >>
  • Gold's Gym - Egypt Family man wrote: I have been a member since Oct 1997 which is 6 months prior to actual opening time. I have many great memories from this place first and foremost I met with my wife while working out there. I also met my best friend there and it was definitely a major reason why I liked Cairo so much. I still go 5 times weekly but now after marriage and kids my hours have changed. I go at 5.30 am before I go to the office which is great for me. It was the first "real" gym to open in Cairo and it quickly attracted many members and beside being a great gym it also became a social club where you see all your friends. The prices are not cheap mind you. I believe a yearly membership costs app LE 4,000 but you can negotiate so be sure to ask. The gym is located on the 8th floor in what I believe are 2 or 3 apartments joined together which means that the ceiling is not that high for a gym but it looks good. There is also a pool on the roof but I have personally never used it. If I want to go to a pool there are many other and better options in Cairo (for example JW Marriott on the ring road). The equipment is both free weights as well as machines and the cardio area is quite well equipped (that is if they work!). You can definitely get a full body workout regardless of your level of fitness. Dumbbells go up to 120lb. Many of the cardio machines now have a tv screen attached to them and you can plug in your headset and watch some tv while you are working out. It helps pass the time for me but the problem is that it is hit and miss. Sometimes the TV's don't work and sometimes the channels you normally watch are gone and sometimes.... You get the picture. Try out the cardio entertainment system before you get on because having to start your program 4 times just to find one machine that works can be quite a drag. 2 of the bikes also now have the iPod/iPhone plug so you can watch your program on the cardio screen. Fantastic. Problem again that one of the 2 has been broken for a while now and saying so to the staff does not seem to work. Most of the staff speak English but don't seem to pass on any concerns or complaints you may have because nothing really changes. The gym is open from 5 am till midnight so you should be able to find the time that suits you but beware that it can get pretty crowded in the late afternoon and early evening. One of the first high end gyms in Egypt and still one of the best but dont expect a level as gyms in UAE, Jordan, Europe and US. More >>


  • Mandara Spa Marie Lou wrote: One day suffering from a case of “Pharaonic Phatigue “I decide to pay a visit to the Mandara Spa in the Marriott Hotel. Relaxation starts when you step in to the foyer where you are offered a tray containing tea, a warm scented towel to refresh yourself and the list of treatments to choose from. The decor is tasteful Asian, the lights are dim, and a lovely citrusy fragrance and soothing music waft in the air. Even under the closest scrutiny what is most remarkable about the spa is the cleanliness, it is spotless. Once you have picked out your choice of treatment an attendant escorts you to a changing and shower room, then to the area where it will be administered. The same serene, tasteful decor and outstanding cleanliness is present all over the spa. I had a Moroccan bath and a rejuvenating facial both executed by a tiny Asian technician with hands surprisingly strong when giving a body massage and as light as butterflies when working on facials. The experience was a vacation within a vacation and worth every penny. Always best to call ahead to make an appointment and specify what you want done so they can set up and be ready for you when you arrive. More >>
  • Mandara Spa Family man wrote: Update to my previous review; I recently went again to Mandara spa and the place itself as well as the massage is still one of the best in Egypt. I had a 90 minutes sports massage and the massage really went deep into my knots and I felt refreshed and relaxed afterwards. The lady was really great. However the small things often make a big difference and the towels and bathrobes smelled really bad and even after exchanging them the replacement also smelt really bad. The very nice Thai lady who brought us the towels smelled them herself and the face she made when she smelled them said it all. I almost laughed. She explained that the laundry service of the hotel is not working properly!!!! WHAT? I wonder what they do with all their sheets. Not a nice thought. Besides that you take of (almost) all of your clothes to get a massage and then you walk to the massage room from your locker room. They used to have the one time slippers that all 5 star hotels have in their rooms but this time they had a pair of plastic slippers that really looked as if they had been worn by a construction worker for years. No way am I going to put my feet in those. I guess the times are hard and they need to save where they can but saving on towels and slippers is not the right place. It really ruins the whole mood.

  • Chiro Practic Clinic - Dr. Hesham Atta fido wrote: I've been exercising for most of life and in the process I have managed to injure my back several times. Typically my back injuries have been in the lower back and every time the injury reoccurred i was basically out of the gym for several weeks ... until i met Dr. Atta... Dr. Atta diagnosis the affected area quickly and gets to work. He is a chiropractor, among other things, and has access to all of the essentials for back related pain and muscle injuries including ultrasound. Generally, in my case, a few back-to-back 15 minute sessions is all it takes to solve the problem and put me back in the gym. I highly recommend Dr. Atta and aside from being very good at what he does, he is also very personable. More >>

  • Misr International Hospital Patient wrote: The circumstances lead me to be admitted at this hospital in order to have my gall bladder removed. I was told that Dr. Nabil Naser is a reputable one and had done many such operations. I was told also that they would make two halls in my abdominal to have it removed by laser. I think my gall bladder was removed or that was what I was told. I stayed two days at the hospital but Dr. Nabil Naser never showed up but a young Dr came the second day of the operation to check and to take the operation fees. I honestly suspect if Dr. Nabil ever operated on me or whether he is in country. It only happens in Misr International Hospital that the patient is not being informed of what to expect and is not being informed of the procedures. The operating doctor doesn't visit or talk to his patients. Nurses, cleaners, admin staff all expect to be tipped. More >>
