Standard taxi fare, depending on bargaining, is around 80 LE. There is also a public bus but it will take a very long time to reach downtown.

there are a couple of options. Go out of the terminal and "negotiate" a fee to the hotel with the white taxis drivers (It should cost around 50 L.E).If you want to avoid the hassle and the headache, you can use the airport shuttle bus service; Here is their webpage

Amritsar, I'd add a third option. It is worth checking to see if your hotel has a courtesy shuttle bus directly from the airport. A quick email costs nothing and some hotels do offer this service.

you may pay 70 to go to Giza, but going downtown costs much less. The problem right now, they may try to raise the fee abusing the situation in downtown.
