Carrying euros vs USD in Egypt and conversion

Just wondering what people have experienced with changing USD vs euro to EGP and whether it is advantageous to take one vs the other. It seems most places take EGP but hotels seem to take euro, others USD. Thanks.

You are from the USA, so the best currency for you to take is US$, and change it at the banks into EGP as you go.

I dont think there is any advantage per se. Theres certainly none in converting US to Euro to LE so its best to simply take US$ with you and change them when you arrive.
