It's a bridge

It's directly outside our hotel but it's nothing more then a common bridge with normal Cairo traffic jams.

A bridge connect between Giza and Cairo, between Cairo University and Kasr Aleini faculty in AL Manial island. Poor, dirty, with a holes under your foots, need a lot of maintenance and decorations. Away from the bad smell sometimes, A nice view over the Nile and the hotels beside it.

It is a famous and important bridge linking Giza to Manial on a main pathway..Congested with heavy automobiles traffic at all hours in both directions. Geographically situated in an amazing spot giving you views of Zamalek island on one side and the way to Meadi on the... More

The Nile here is amazing! No matter how much you read about it, see photos of it or even videos you are never really prepared for the great Nile. No river in the whole wide world can compare. This is a relatively high bridge compared to other bridges crossing the Nile in Cairo so it does offer some magnificent views... More

Like all the bridges over the Nile, this one offers nice views of Cairo and the vicinity. Good to do on a hot evening.

Though surroundings changed a little and traffic increased 10 folds from the seventies when I used to walk on that bridge on a daily basis while going to Cairo university, but the charm is still there ...

Despite of its vital necessity to the whole Cairo citizens & inhabitants and its great length, the bridge is suffering from bad finishing, negligence and poor anticipation of the future passengers needs as a main road
