Hotels and sleeping at Cairo Airport

Where to find the best place to stay at or near Cairo Airport?

Sleeping in the terminal - opening hours

Due to the all-night heavy flight traffic, both terminals are open 24/7.

Sleeping overnight at Cairo Airport is possible and no one will check you in, as security screening takes place as soon as you enter the building from the outside.

However, sleeping comfortably in either terminal is virtually impossible. There are no comfortable seats or quiet corners. The traffic is very dense all night long and therefore there is a lot of noise in the halls.

Hotels near the terminal

In the case of an early morning departure or a long layover, we recommend staying overnight at one of the hotels right on the airport grounds.

There is no hotel inside the transit area, so if you have a long layover you will have to go through immigration and go outside the airport.

Click on the name of the hotel to see prices and availability.

You can get to/from the airport by taxi or Uber app at any time of the night, so feel free to book hotels directly in Cairo.
