What hotel to stay in Cairo, budget 200AU


We are young adventurous 60/70 visiting Egypt for the first time and I am shocked at the prices of hotels in Egypt.

We enjoy a comfortable, clean hotel in a location where we can easily walk to resturants in the evening, so we arent stuck dining at the high prices in the hotel. A view of the Nile would be wonderful if we could get it.

We were intending to spend 5 nights there at the end of September/beginning of October to fully explore Cairo and visit the pyramids before heading off to Luxor for a cruise.

I was recommended either the Semiramis Intercontential and the Marriott as possibilities.

However the best rate with all the taxes that I can find is about $260AU or US and that doesnt include breakfast. It is however a Nile view Room which I have told is the best rooms to have.

That is just out of our budget at this stage as we will be travelling in total for 12 weeks. I dont want to be in a dump either but could someone recommend another hotel that would be located in a convient area for us.

I have read the reviews but I am not sure about location of the hotels.

Thank you for any advice you can give.
