Best view to pyramids, 2 minutes walk to them. Spacious room, big and comfy bed. Fast wifi, good air conditioner, amazingly helpful and friendly staff. Smoke-and alcohol free - calm and good for relaxing. Many shops near to guesthouse. Best place to be near to the pyramids.

It was just as spectacular as my first time staying in this family-ran B&B. Very helpful staff, kind and respectful - A+ for those of us who travel solo. The view is unbeatable and the breakfast was simple yet satisfying! I will not stay anywhere else in Giza. Note that this is a smoke-free and alcohol-free facility.

Right in front of the Pyramids! You can't beat the view from the rooftop! Room was spotless, bed was comfortable, AC was such a relief from the heat outside, bathroom was clean and basic shampoo, soap and conditioner were provided. Breakfast was simple (croissants, jams, omelet, cheeses,) but filling. Airport pick-up was a good value (they meet you and assist... More

Great views of the pyramids from the rooms and roof top.. What people have failed to mention on here is that the hotel is on a main, dirty road right across from the call to prayer speakers which seemed to be in use on and off from around 5am 'til 11pm every day. The hotel itself is adequate but it... More

Great place. Great service and family. The location is the best though. I just loved my experience here. I spent half my trip at the Hilton in Cairo, and I really wish I had just spent every night in Giza at the Guardian Guest House.

This hotel was very simple but amazing. The view from the room or the terrace is what made me loved it. Everything is very clean. The staff is amazing, I asked for falafels for breakfast, because I though people had already finished them and they made them quickly, and they were delicious. The terrace has a lot of open space,... More

Stayed four nights, separate spacious double room for three kids, separate couple room for husband and myself. Clean simple hotel, excellent location. Axing view from window and the roof top. Pyramids are the best view, full Giza plateau, breathtaking at sunset and dawn! Recommend for view

First of all, amazing location for the pyramids, and amazing view of the pyramids. Definitely request a room facing the pyramids if possible. Even if you don't get that, it's ok because the rooftop (which is open 24 hours) offers possibly the best view of the Giza Plateau in the city. While the location itself is amazing for the Giza...
