What is not to love. The roif terrace faces the pyramids,its just wonderful. Staying here was a highlight for me. The rooms are clean and modern, everything you need including a kettle and excellent shower. The road is a bit noisy, but thats Cairo, and the general location outshines everything. The staff are lovely, would highly recommend!

During my stay at this hotel I was almost sexually assaulted by the hotel manager. To be fair this is probably not a problem you’d run into if you’re not a solo female traveler, but it was still a very scary situation that unfortunately ruined my trip. If you decide to stay here please be careful of Hytham.

What a view!
Amazing hotel. The view was breathtaking and the service was outstanding. We watched the light show at dusk from the terrace. Ate a delicious breakfast while gazing out at the pyramids. They even escorted us to their favorite felafel restaurant where we ate 6 different times. This hotel was a highlight of our experience in Egypt.

Perfect view of Sphinx and Great Pyramids.
Hotel location is near Pyramids entrance gate. Perfect view of the pyramids and sphinx. Nice arabic style breakfast. Staff are friendly. I was picked up at the airport as agreed. The hotel building is nice but it Would be great if the room assigned to me was clean and ready to use. I arrived around 3:00 a.m. and had to request to change the beddings as there were visible signs that it has been used previously. On our check out around 3:30 am, hotel arranged us a car service to the airport. The lady gave us a very old car 70’s or 80’s that cant even run more than 30 mph at the super highway. After 10-15 min of driving, we got a flat tire and we were standing on the side of the dark road of the super highway without an early warning device. Thank’s God another taxi stopped and we’re able to catch our flight on time.

Get out of your modern comfort zone.
Views of Giza were amazing. Can’t beat the free sound and light show. Staff was friendly and very willing to help out. We were in room 2 and had four double sized beds in our room with average comfort. No phone or TV in the room but you don’t stay at this hotel to be in the room. You stay here for the view and authentic Egyptian experience and breakfast. A bit different from modern hotels but great experience for a couple nights. My only complaint was the constant temperature change in the water. If you stay in room two just remember, you’ll have three seconds of ice cold water followed by six seconds of hot. Go ahead and try the Egyptian experience.
