"Standard hotel....great private car service!"
The hotel was clean, good size bedroom, small bathroom though, and close proximity to the pyramids(as we could see the pyramids in the distance from our balcony when the pollution and smog permitted). The breakfast and dinner buffet offered a vast selection, and was included in the room rate. However, the most spectacular feature of the hotel is the […] car service located in the lobby area. They helped us plan our entire visit with a private guide/driver for a really reasonable price. You need only to tell them what you want to see and accomplish while you there, and they will personalize an itinerary from beginning to end, completely worry free! Initially, we were concerned about having a guide/driver who spoke English well enough to understand. That fear was completely dispelled when we met our guide/driver Farid. We can't say enough positive things about Farid. He is absolutely AMAZING! Egyptian born, with great communicative English. He was professional with a genuine interest in our safety and making our first visit to Egypt a lasting memory. Farid was probably by far the best reason to book at this hotel! For him it wasn't just about receiving a tip(as it is for many Egyptians in the business of tourism), surprisingly he declined daily tips and kindly requested we waited to the end of our 4 days with him to determine if we thought his service was tip worthy! Unheard of in Cairo, where everyone is after you for money! If you visit Cairo, Farid is a must hire driver!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Horizon Pyramids Hotel"
We were not satisfied with our stay in this hotel. The service was poor, the room was never clean, there was no Wi-Fi as promissed. Would not recommend it to anyone. And it states that the hotel has 4 stars!!!! In the sky???Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay for a quick stay. Pyramid view sort of."
This hotel is affordable and situated on a busy street. It is good for a base for a day or two and has free wireless internet which is great. Rooms are clean and comfortable but the restaurant is a NIGHTMARE! Luckily, there are some restaurants nearby so you can avoid the restaurant all together. You can see the pyramids at a distance... or at least […] part of them from some rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My hotel stay is a bit partial because I stayed at a partner hotel a few nights earlier and even though the other hotel's rate was about five U.S. dollars more, it was head and shoulders above this one. I would not recommend this one only because I would recommend the other hotel, which is run by same management.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"We checked out early, only stayed 3 nights"
We booked 8 nights, but after only 3 days we decided "to run off" as fastest we can. The rooms are very small, dark and filthy. The carpet had Cigarettes burn marks everywhere and was really sticky....The sheets and blankets were disgusting. There was not enough storage room, so we basically kept all of our clothes in our Bags. Parking was a nightmare...please […] note, there is NO FREE PARKING for this hotel, even though that this is what they offer, they don't even have a parking lot. You park on the street and get harassed by people "helping" you park but want tips all the time, when you arrive and when you leave. If you don't give money or let them "help you" they start a big fight. My husband is Egyptian, and even he got really, really frustrated. We were not able to use the pool, it was not really clean and there were always men sitting around on the tables smoking and watching. Breakfast was so lala, not international standard, but ok to fill your stomach. We can absolutely NOT recommend this hotel. We did not get any money back, because of us leaving early, but that’s ok, we were not willing to stay any longer. We enjoyed the new hotel very much, where we spend the rest of our vacation. (Soluxe Cairo--rooms and pool fantastic, breakfast not good, but its ok), will stay there again !!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"l'unica pecca seria: la colazione"
la colazione (a parte e costosa per gli standard del cairo) non era fresca, ogni giorno c'era meno roba del giorno precedente e non si degnavano nemmeno di rimescolare i cibi del giorno prima, lasciando intatta la crosta secca formatisi nella notte...a parte la colazione è andata beneGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I spent 13 days at the hotel. I didn't like the male staff working at the reception they were a bit rude but the female staff were much better. When I first arrived I got this very small room with cold water only not working ac and no lights. Anyhow I complained to the manager and I came home and everything was fixed. 3 days later I wake up with a call […] 8am that they want to upgrade me n that I should be ready I woke up very tired got ready and it took them. 3 hours to change me the room which annoyed me cuz they stressed me on the phone. The housekeeping and bell staff were very friendly n helpful. Overall I think for the price it's a very good hotel I recommend but put in mind you get what you payed for nothi g fancy Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hotel mit Sicht auf die Pyramiden, toll"
Die Standardzimmer sind sehr schön mit Balkon und Blick auf die Pyramiden. an einer sehr stark befahrenen Strasse. Gutes Brakfastbuffet, kann auch nach Lust etwas anderes bestellen. Freundliches Personal, jedoch fast ohne Englishkenntnisse so spricht man mit den Händen. Ich empfehle diese Hotel zu diesen niedrigen PreisenGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"hotel close to the pyramides"
i had just a small room with a small window. at the reception people are not well trained, often they don't know what to do nice breakfastbuffetGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel très sympathique, bien géré"
Hotel se trouve à 3 km des Pyramides en taxi collectif pour 1 LE on peut se rendre vers l'entréé. Hotel à une rue bruyante , mais derrier l'hotel il y a un quartier populair très sympa. L'hotel est très bien géré et le personnel est sympa. Un bon petit déjeuné buffet. Je recommande cet Hotel à 100% et et j'y retourneraiGenuine Hotels.com guest review
先日仕事で6泊しました。場所的には便利で値段もとてもお値打ちです。これで朝食付きなら文句はありません。ただ4つ星のホテルにしては部屋は汚ないしシャワーの水流は全くダメだし、お湯も満足に出ません。それ以外は問題ないかな....とにかく場所、値段重視な方にお勧めです。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
やや高い部屋を選べば、ピラミッドが見える部屋の可能性大です。道路やレストランがかなり騒がしく、人によってはなかなか寝付けないかもしれません。朝食はかなりいいです。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
滞在中ピラミッド三昧で過ごすのならいい立地にあるホテルだと思う。ホテル近辺に酒屋があったのが良かった。これはかなりポイント高い。部屋の狭さは宿泊料金に比例しているから仕方ないと思えるが、清潔とは言えない。ラグジュアリーなホテル滞在を期待している女性には向かないと思った。Genuine Expedia guest review

"soggiorno all'hotel Horizon del Cairo"
il soggiorno è stato molto confortevole, la camera con vista strada e Piramidi era molto accogliente. Il personale molto disponibile, abbiamo solo avuto solo qualche problema con internet. La colazione abbondante e varia.Genuine Expedia guest review
Generelt meget nedslidt by, så standarden i forhold til andre steder er fin.. Men poolen meget lille og kold, solstolene i stykker, morgenmaden kold og brødet tørt. Roomservice var overraskende udemærket og folk var der for at hjælpe! Vores airconditioning virkede ikke, den tændte og slukkede meget tilfældigt.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Excellent hotel for the price with outstanding service."
12/08/14 petraschnecke72 New York City, New York
This hotel was great for my purposes. I paid about 30$ a night. The room was clean and nice and had a view of the pyramids. The bathroom was also clean. I guess Americans would like it a bit more updated but I thought it was good. The service was outstanding. Just to explain what I mean: I asked for a converter, which is not really the hotel's job to get. The porter went out to buy one for me at 4 a.m. in the morning. I thought that was super nice. Everyone in the hotel tried to make my stay pleasant. The travel agency in the hotel provided great service and I hired a driver there (Peter). He was fantastic and took me for three days all over Cairo. I recommend this hotel if you want to be close the pyramids. I guess it is not too romantic. Some people said that there was street noise. That is true. I live in a big city so it did not stop me from sleeping but I could see how other people might be bothered. I also thought it was safe. I traveled as a singe woman.

We stayed there for 3 nights. On the last night they knoked at the door at 2:30 am and 4 men came into the room saying there was a problem with the fire alarm. After 15 minutes in the room talking in arabic they left without any explanation. Next morning they said it was a mistake but nobody apologiced for the terrible night we spent. Furthermore wifi wasnt working, the toilet wasn't clean at all and it was a really noisy place.
During trip to Egypt this October we stayed at this hotel twice. Once on the second floor and once on the first floor. The second floor rooms were better. First floor rooms were small, smelly, A/c not working. Room was changed after several requests but that did not improve matters much. The new room had basin that got clogged immediately. Water dripped from the A/c . Other members of our group suffered similar problems. Location is okay. The gift shop was delightful and the person quite helpful.
"Good place for night stay"
I stayed here couple of times just for night stay, there is no car parking, so it's a little bit insecure to park ur car near the hotel, Rooms are tidy and cozy, good breakfast, good value for money There are many resturants and shops near the hotel.
"Location is great!"
09/11/14 Urban M New York City, New York
I'm American and used to staying in cleaner and more luxe hotel but this hotel was just okay. The service was just standard. The friendliest person we met was in the gift shop - he suggested restaurants in the area and told us what to buy and not buy in Egypt. If your priority is location then this would be place to be. When we travel we enjoy staying near the locals. You could go out your hotel at night and sit on the steps and people watch-- their are always people of all ages out walking the streets. The restaurants in the area were excellent. We ate breakfast buffet at the hotel and that was your typical hotel food. The rooms weren't that clean but we did have a very small balcony with pyramid view. Check in was easy and we didn't have any problems during our stay.
"Horizon Pyramids experience"
08/06/14 Vanessa L
I would have to agree with many reviewers about this hotel being more like a 2 or 3 stars. Most lights except the lamp light either are not bright enough or not working. The A/C appears not working until it kicks in a few hours later. When I arrived, I had a female receptionist, who had a somewhat snooty attitude, didn't know what she's doing. So she had to call somebody else to help her. This other one was nice and gave me a welcome smile which is what a front desk person supposed to do. Despite that what made me smile was the bellboy was wearing dress shoes with his uniform.

06/07/14 Dana D Toronto, Canada
Hotel is fine, breakfast included, outdoor swimming pool, food good. The problem I had was the $60 charge a night and the fact the driver was supposed to pick me up and drop me off to the airport for free, and he picked me up but didn't drop me off, saying I needed to pay him, when I was told by Mohhammad (the guide) it was free, so finally I had to get the hotel receptionist to get me a cab and got charged 120 egyptian pounds to get to the airport. The Minister of tourism-if that's even who he is- Mohhammad Shakur said he was going to arrange a ride for me which he didn't. Also if you have a driver , if he says he'll be there at 5 expect him 45 minutes later, but he'll charge you 10$/h from 5.
