If seeing the Giza Pyramids and Sphinx is on your itinerary, then this hotel does not disappoint. You can’t get much closer without being on the actual desert sands that surround the pyramids and Sphinx. The enormous windows in the room (we stayed in 101) are above street level , allowing you to see over the nearby stable, mosque, and... More

All the previous reviews are pretty accurate in terms of its close proximity to the pyramids, spectacular view (!), clean and simple rooms, great value, basic meals, fast wi-fi and very accomodating staff. I was warned about being hassled by agressive vendors in the streets around the hotel. After the site closes at 4 PM, most vendors are gone and... More

This guesthouse is perfectly located directly in front of the Sphinx and the view from the roof was fantastic - perfect for watching the sound and light show in the evening. The rooms themselves are quite simple but very clean and comfortable. The only thing that was a bit of a let down for me was that I had specifically... More

Within minuted from making the reservation, they were in contact with me. They arranged for my transportation from the airport, and their representative was waiting for me right off the plane and helped me with immigration formalities.... More
