Sphinx Guest House, Cairo
Great Location and Awesome for groups
I had a awesome stay the guest family was so nice and accommodating. My room was clean and had the best view of the Giza Pyramids. We also had hot water lol
Sheila J., us5 night trip
Sphinx Guest House, Cairo
Perfect view of Pyramids Giza
Well this is a family run guest house overlooking the Pyramids & Sphinx. Its the best view from the rooftop of all the hotels in Giza,, you can watch the sound & light show nightly & enjoy a home cooked dinner if you wish & watch the sunset. The owner Gouda speaks excellent English & can help you plan your adventure to anywhere you desire to go. If you are looking for an authentic experience with the daily dance of life its abundance from the rooftop will not disappoint as camel's, arabian horses, carriages are abundant to whisk you to & from the Pyramids. If your looking for 5 star its not for you. There's daily breakfast provided also there's a KFC & Pizza Hut across the street. We will be back to stay here again! So enjoy you next adventure....
