Can't Go Wrong with Sphinx Guest House
Our stay the Guest house was great, the family owned hotel the owner Mr Gouda very nice cooperative and guided us on each step even arranged a pick up and drop off from the airport also arranged the tour for ushe gave us his cell phone if we had any problem, the breakfast was very nice prepared by the owner's daughter, the whole stay experience was like visiting a family in Giza our stay was very comfortable, Pizza hut and Kentucky fried chicken next to the guest house can't go wrong with the choice of this guest house Hotel cost was very reasonable.Can see the light show at the pyramid right from the roof of the Hotel and see the 3 main pyramids from the roof

Dreaming view from room!
The beast view of the Great Pyramids form this hotel, the host are very friendly. You can enjoy the night light show from the roof. It just need a little bit of improvement in cleanness, but nothing too serious.

Poor1.0 / 5
Unsafe, slimy experience
First off- the Giza neighbourhood is not safe. I would highly recommend staying somewhere else if you are looking to venture out on your own- its jam packed with people at all times looking to deceive you in order to rip you off. Secondly, this hotel was awful. The view was incredible, but everything else about the experience was truly subpar- this is the worst place I've ever stayed. The room itself- the sheets dont fit the bed (and arent changed at all by housekeeping- just bed made). My shower was broken, as was the bathroom door- it wouldnt stay closed at all. the tv/dvd player was a 10inch crt monitor and no dvd player in sight. Also, the bathroom window was smashed- so they covered it badly with a garbage bag??? Worse, however- are the other people at the hotel that are just there to mooch off you as well. There are about 3-4 men who perpetually sit outside the hotel and assail you in or out to either 1- take camel rides 2-buy from the shop on the main floor 3- will "walk with you" to the nearby shop for "security" and then will ask for tips. Its exhausting enough to deal with this all day as a tourist, I didnt want this greasy sales strategy to follow me to the hotel as well. At one point as well, one of these people attempted to give my room to a new guest while I was inside it????? Overall, an entirely negative experience. Mainly the Giza neighbourhood, but additionally the hotel is just truly awful. Take my advice and stay somewhere else!

Come for the rooftop view
The hostel was very basic but the view was worth it. Recommend to book 1 night for the view at the roof top. View the sunset followed by light & sound show at 6pm(Arabic), 7pm (English) & 8pm (other). Tasty Egyptian dinner set can be had on the roof for 10USD per pax. Great way to enjoy the evening/night view. Ask for the rooftop room.
