This is near Masjid Hussein, al Azhar Mosque and Khan al Khalili. It is a nice place to have a meal during the day or night.

If you visit the Khan al Khalili you will know Midan Hussein - a focal point for hustlers, touts, guides, traders of all kinds and harassed tourists. Great to get a snack or drink in one of the restaurants nearby, pick up some incence mixed to your personal preference, buy something weird and wonderful or just drink in the atmosphere.... More

As a place it is getting busier everyday. Watch out from beggars. If you are there to visit the mosque for prayers (this isn't a touristic mosque (unlike the mohamed ali mosque) ) you will enjoy it. At al hussein area you can visit khan al khalili and see the wonderful bazaars of cairo

This is a nice place to give you the essence of real cairo! You get to see the garment market cross the road, the Hussein masjid behind you, and Khalili Bazar near by. During Ramadan the whole place would be crowded, somehow people come for religious purposes. Year around the place is nice for taking nice photographs and get some... More

This square is where most people start their trip into the Khan Al Khalili. It is a big square, with a large mosque on one side. Outside the mosque are huge umbrellas to protect people from the sun. One side of the square is lined with outdoor restaurants - the waiters are a bit pushy, prices are a bit high,... More

Just unique place, unique atmosphere in crowded place; crowded with local people and visitors, very nice features of old Islamic Cairo architecture. Care from very bad and very greedy local restaurants in the main square.
