Staying at the Windsor (a former British Officer’s Club), it's easy to imagine that the 1952 Egyptian Revolution never took place. English accents ring out in the clubby Barrel Bar as aged gents in old school ties peruse newspapers on reading sticks. Everything here is as it was before the Windsor's famous sister hotel, Shepheard's, burned to the ground across the street. The manned elevator, the telephones, the switchboard, the furniture...all original. The staff, especially Samir Fayek, will treat you like family.

One of Cairo's best-kept secrets is this former British officers club which then became an annex to the legendary (and long since gone Shepherds Hotel). Rooms are atmospheric but basic - the present owners have a policy of repairing or restoring anything which breaks, rather than replacing it - but the real start attraction here is the first floor bar which takes you back to the time of linen suits, panama hats and pith helmets. Even though it's only up one flight of stairs, make sure you get a ride in what is reputedly Cairo's oldest working elevator.
