A wonderful / friendly and reasonable guest house. Spotlessly clean and helpful staff. Roof terrace looks over the Giza plateau. Great food. Ask for the overnight camping trip to the White Desert. It is amazing!

Guardian Guest House is an excellent place to stay in Giza. Many rooms have pyramid views (is one of the closest hotel to the site) they are very clean and with the air conditioning. But the main "asset" of this place is the staff, helpful and so kind. They help you to arrange taxi at a fare tariff, and they... More

I have stayed in numerous budget hotels all over the world but would be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay than the Guardian Guest House. From the minute we were met at the airport to the minute we left, we couldn't have wished for a better experience. We had chosen a Pyramids view room and there are few... More

As many other reviews state, the views here are just breath taking! Best vantage point to get great photos of the pyramids and the Sphinx and of course the evening light and sounds show - that was a bit cheesy, but still nice to watch for free. It must be noted that the road this guest house is on is... More

This hotel has a wonderful view of the pyramids. The rooms are clean and the food is good too. The wifi is a little slow, but overall that is not a big issue as the view of the pyramids make up for it.

We picked the Guardian Guesthouse because of the reviews, and it did not disappoint! We were concerned with safety traveling to Egypt, so we wanted to stay somewhere we felt comfortable. First, the view is even better than it looks in the photos. Absolutely FABULOUS. We debated on staying at a 4 star hotel in Cairo, or staying in Giza... More

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
