Openly said, it was my big mistake. I didn’t care to much about suspicious low price but I saw relative good rating, actually the best in the area close to pyramids. After very long searching (it took about one hour for my driver who is born in Cairo, and 30 minutes next day for another one) we found it and truly say I was shocked. The hotel is placed in poor area and it's poor itself. From outside it looks horrible and after “checking” I was given a key from the room which was “pyramid-see-view”. Room of dimensions 2x3m was full of a nice king-bed 1,6x2m, so there left not to much place for the movement, therefor there is a sliding door, which the hotel gay couldn’t close. The bed was placed under the window, which was in height of 2m, so if you wanted to see outside you would have to stay on the bed. I was aware that I am in Egypt but the rating was so nice...
Starting with disappointment, I was positively surprised to find the rooms very clean. The washroom is common for several rooms and despite my fear also this rooms were nice clean. Another positive aspect was very friendly and kind personal. WiFi in this hotel was really good and free in the room as well as on the roof.
This hotel I only would recommend to students and young people, who want to find a nigh shelter. They can find a cheap hotel situated directly to pyramids, with clean rooms and very nice people. I would never recommend it to anyone who is from abroad and expect at least a bit comfort. An Egyptian partner picked me up next morning and the first words yet before introducing himself to me were “who the hell told you about this hotel, look out on the streets, in this district there cannot be any good hotel”. Nevertheless the hotel looks horrible as well as the whole area, I have to repeatedly mention the cleanness and nice attitude of personal and that’s the main reason why I rate it with 3 points.
