"Pros and Cons, over all good but be carefull."
My wife and I stayed at the hotel for about 10 days. Here are some pros and cons: Pros: Close to the Pyramids, overall a clean hotel, try to be helpful. Food is nice and they have a gym and swimming pool. Cons: Al Haram street is quite populated and noise. If you get a higher floor, better for you. The worst item for us was the fact that they don´t use the air conditioner during some times of the year. We suffered A LOT in the first two days until finally the hotel gave us a portable fun. Unfortunately, there were some neighbors that didn´t respect the fact that that is a hotel in Egypt and were in the corridor, sitting in the sofa just with a towel and no other clothes. Not nice if you are with your wife or family. Smoking is a serious problem in most places in Egypt and personally we don´t like it the eternal smell of cigarettes everywhere. I tried to negotiate with the manager our breakfast, but no negotiation was made. We didn´t have breakfast at the hotel, so we can´t say anything about it. Finally, DON`T use the guys downstairs trying to sell you a taxi ride or a tourist package. They are going to rip you off. Just take a taxi outside, use the meter in the taxi to give you the right price and pay for it. All in all, we wold use the hotel again, making sure the air conditioner is ON and that we get a high floor. Also, we would make sure breakfast is included and that if you get any room with cigarett smelling, just ask for a change.

今回久しぶりにエジプトに行きました。エジプトは観光客が少なくホテルも閑散としてました。サービスは依然と変わらず満足行くものでした、スタッフも色々親切にしてもらいました。ただ朝食は以前に比べ相当貧弱になりました。多分宿泊客も少ないので品数を減らしたのだと思います。しかし相対的には満足行くものでした。また交通の便はいいのでタクシーもよく通ります!

"Godt hotel: pool, social snak, gode til engelsk"
Meget venligt, imødekommende og hjælpsomt personale ved turistudflugtsskrivebordet! Meget flot udsmykket hotel og også restauranten på 12. etage med udsigt til pyramiderne. Nogenlunde udvalg på spisekort til en uge, taget i betragtning at to skandivaviske piger ikke kan gå på gaden og finde en restaurant. Hæveautomat i hall'en giver kun store sedler.. :-( svært at få vekslet til små. Morgenmadsbuffeten er stor og flot med masser at vælge imellem af egyptisk mad.

Todo bien, aunque pensé que quedaba cerca de las pirámides. No hay nada interesante a destancia caminable, pero el hotel es literalmente un oasis, si estás cansado del polvo, el sol y el ruido, el hotel es excelente. Te puedes fumar una shisha junto a la piscina con un excelente servicio de bar y muchos bares y restaurantes para escoger. Seguro regreso.

"Ottimo Hotel"
Ho soggiornato per 4 notti al "Barcelo" di Giza . . . devo dire che mi sono trovato bene . . . il personale parlava un ottimo inglese , la camera era comodissima . . . pulita , tranne che per la moquette che ne rivestiva il pavimento . . . forse una pulitina in più . . .ma per tutta la polvere che è presente al cairo era un vero lusso più che accettabile alla fine . . . . l'unico vero inconveniente e che l'hotel affaccia su una strada trafficata in qualsiasi ora , di giorno come di notte , questione di abitudine e dopo il primo giorno si dorme che è una bellezza . . . una piscina fantastica del resto con ottimi ristoranti e bar . . . Davvero un bell'hotel , con una struttura molto elegante e moderna . . . consigliato . . . anche per il punto strategico in cui si trova .

"Hotel con alcuni punti da migliorare"
L'hotel si trova a circa 1h30 dall'aeroporto, in una zona comoda per raggiungere le Piramidi. E' situato su una strada molto trafficata, quindi è consigliabile prenotare una camera ubicata ad un piano alto e possibilmente sul lato laterale o sul retro. Siamo stati colpiti positivamente dalla ristorazione. Punti negativi invece la pulizia della camera - mi riferisco soprattutto alla pulizia della moquette - e la sicurezza della camera, consiglio di portare sempre con se soldi o oggetti di valore. Prima della partenza avevo letto altri commenti relativi alla sicurezza in camera e mi sono stati utili.

"清潔・快適・バリュー"
禁煙ダブルを予約。 ■立地: カイロ地下鉄EL-GIZA駅からタクシーで5~10分、ピラミッド地区に通じるAl Ahram通り沿いのホテルに建つ中層階のホテルなので分かり易い。ホテルからピラミッド地区(ピラミッド側入口)までタクシーで10分程度。 ■ホテル周辺: ダウンタウンに比べて朝晩は静かな環境、ホテル隣に両替・売店(24時間営業?)あり。 ■部屋: 清潔、広め。バスタブ付きの風呂、アメニティ付き(スリッパなし)。 ■食事: (不明) ■その他: ポーターが気さく。カイロ空港までタクシー手配を依頼すると135LEと高め。 ※個人旅行でピラミッド地区へ行かれる方、強引な客引きや偽のチケット売りにご注意下さい。

"Hotel ist ok, essen in Ordnung, alles sauber"
Das Hotel ist sauber, die Mitarbeiter freundlich und das Essen in in der Preisklasse und einem 4sterne Hotel in Ordnung - kein Wahnsinn aber ok für ein paar Tage. Pyramideview ist ... na ja - wir sind in eine Suite gewechselt da der Lärm von der Straße unerträglich war... in den Suiten ist es ruhiger - ganz ruhig ist es nirgendwo in Kairo. Aufpassen sollte man bei den Services wie dem Limousinenservice oder Extratrips. Der Fahrer nimmt zwar nur ca. 50,- Euro für den ganzen Tag aber er bringt einen dann laufend an Orte wo man überall zum Kauf von Papyrus, Parfum, Baumwolleprodukte etc... gedrängt wird. Pyramiedentour sollte erst inklusive sein aber kostete dann doch 260,- Euro extra - man muss vorher ALLES ganz genau definiere um keine teuren Überraschungen zu erleben. Auch wenn man einen Reiseguide vor Ort über das Hotel bucht, wird einem das Blaue vom Himmel herunter versprochen - geliefert dann allerdings recht wenig davon außer vieler schöner Worte von denen man allerdings wenig hat.... Besser von zu Hause aus alles planen - dann kann man das Reisebüro in die Verantwortung ziehen... vor Ort ist das Geld sicher weg - auch wenn man nicht bekommen hat, was vereinbart wurde.

"Great hotel with Excellent staff"
08/18/15 10wilsonc Giza
The views at this hotel were fantastic. I particularly liked the pool area. The restaurants served delicious food and the staff was very attentive and friendly. If we needed anything all we had to do was ask. Before we visited Egypt we had heard that there was no toilet paper anywhere in the country. We found this to be absolutely false. In fact, toilet paper was abundant. It was as if people had heard that visitors were complaining that there was no toilet paper and therefore went overboard to make sure it was always there for you. The WiFi at this hotel is not complimentary. This is by far my biggest complaint. In most places in the world WiFi would be free at a 4 star hotel. Barceló charges a very high price for their WiFi and it only lasts a short amount of time with unreliable connections. This being said, the whole purpose on going on vacation is that you disconnect and stop staring at your devices. For me the Wifi access was not a big issue but I do think it would have been nice to be able to check in on my family to let them know that I was safe, if only for a moment. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel. Don't walk around outside at night, we got some bad vibes when we went out to grab water. As long as you are at the hotel you will have a fantastic time and feel at home.

"Close to the pyramids"
08/16/15 mr_vodoo Madrid, Spain
The hotel is located in a very busy street. The hotel is nice and the room that they gave us was on the upper floors so noise level was acceptable. The room was big and nice. The hotel has one small pool which we didn't try. We went to try the restaurant located on the top floor but it was closed that day for a party, they recommended that we try the other restaurant called nefertary and so we did as we didn't want to go out. The experience was not very good. We ordered a pizza and after waiting for 30 min the brought the pizza undercooked, raw... We asked them to cook it a bit more and they did. Then we were waiting for almost 30 min for them to bring the bill... Unbelievable... From the three days there was one day that they didn't make the room. Breakfast was good Pros. - Close to the pyramids - Rooms comfortable - Air conditioning - Breakfast Cons. - Service not very helpful. Staff at check in needs to be more helpful. - Sometimes they don't make the room. - Restaurants not very good and expensive

"Beautiful hotel in a bad area"
08/14/15 ksaasto Woodbury, New York
This is a very beautiful hotel. however, Giza is a horrible area. the hotel is very close to the pyramids but by no means can you see the pyramids from your hotel! i could not see them from the rooftop pool. every time we tried to go to the restaurant, it was not open, so not sure if you can even see it from there either (which is on a higher level then the rooftop pool). My boyfriend and i stayed at the hotel and we did not feel safe to leave the hotel at nighttime. After our tourguide dropped us off at the end of the night, we did not leave the hotel. the doormen even told us it was not safe to walk one way, and only walk a couple of blocks the other way. Could also be because we were american and look as such. As a woman, men were always staring at me, even when i covered up in appropriate attire. very rude and disrespectful. If you do stay at this hotel, make sure they do not try to charge you for the wifi because it is supposed to be free and they gave us a hard time with getting it for free when our package from expedia said that it would include free wifi. other than that, the staff was very nice and helpful. if you do not care about the area, then the barcelo is a beautiful hotel to stay in. however, i would recommend to stay in cairo instead of giza and would never come back to giza. also, make sure you check with the hotel the average cost of things such as camel rides and ATV rides so you don't get taken advantage of. it happened our whole trip because when they see tourists they expect we are all rich.

"I will not stay here again!"
08/05/15 Colonel M Glasgow, United Kingdom
The positives are the close proximity to the Pyaramids and Cairo Centre and the price for online booking. The negatives are - uncomfortable beds, tv channels that were fuzzy and unable to watch, dreadful buffet dinner at high price, and below average breakfast! Corridors dirty with room service plates left out over night! Wedding Party took over the place-had to struggle to get into lobby to check in! Better places as similar price I am afraid! Only hand towels provided!! As for food £17.50 for a inferior, dried up buffet - no way. Five minutes walk and you have many choices! I had a beautiful shrimp sandwich with fries and cola at Momen Restaurant for less than £5.00!

Pretty hotel on a main street with tons of traffic and pedestrians going by. There is an ATM across the street but you have to dodge cars to get there. There's a fancy grocery store in a mall 1 block away across the pedestrian bridge ( very safe)-- we like to try the local snack foods in packages so there's no worry about bacteria. Staff at the hotels everywhere in Egypt were very friendly and helpful.

I stayed for 17 nights and i absolutely loved it. Staff were brilliant Mr Hussain at front desk top man always had a smile and helped whenever needed. Swimming pool and sheesha was great went out nearly every night. Room service was good too, wenever needed they came. Was there in ramadan, breakfast (sahoor) was sent up 2 our room at the right time. I would go and stay at the Barcelo hotel again and do recommend others 2 this hotel. McD KFC Pizza Hut Burger King all on the same road loved it.

07/21/15 Bhaskara K Staten Island, New York, United States
I stayed in the hotel for two nights. Hotel is very decent. Reception staff members are very courteous. First day you would have full plate of variety of fruits in your room. There are apples, oranges, bananas, dates, etc. which is better than a full meal. Buffet breakfast, lunch and dinner are with a lot of options and very sumptuous. For both days while I was staying there I did not have a good view from the room. But for this deficiency I should have given an excellent rating for this hotel.

"Did not live up to the Barcelo name, but not a bad place"
06/27/15 New_Speranza Jacksonville, Florida
The Bad: Bring a noise machine, the Giza Strip is a popular spot for parties and the traffic and honking never stop, even at 3AM. Wifi is not included in the room price and the cost for two devices per day was about half of what we were paying for the room per night. The Good: It definitely has the potential to be great, but you can see the effect of the downturn in tourism. That being said the staff was nice, the breakfast was adequate. The view of the pyramids is fun. My advice: stay for a night when you see the pyramids, but don't make this your home base to see all of Cairo.
