This is my 17th visit to the Grand Pyramids Hotel, and each time I have really enjoyed my stay here. I have visited Egypt 6 times in the past two years for leisure and business, and during those times the Grand Pyramids Hotel has been my base in Cairo. Last year I came with my family, and my teenage sons were made to feel really welcome. I also use this hotel for business when travelling with clients, and have received excellent feedback about the hotel from all who have stayed here with me.
The staff are extremely welcoming, friendly, and efficient. In particular, the staff at the front desk help me to feel very much at home - they are approachable and always very happy to help.
There is a good selection of food available from 4 different restaurants, the rooms are generously sized with desk, lounge chairs, and room to move, the towels are soft, the sheets smooth and fresh. There's a fridge to keep your water cool, and the rooms I have stayed in have a great view of the pyramids, with their own private balconies. The bathroom has bath and shower, and a washing line if you like to wash your own clothes, though there is a clothes cleaning service if you prefer.
The pool and gardens are like an oasis amongst the bustle of Cairo, and from here it takes 15 minutes by car to reach the pyramids, which I like to visit each time I am here. The buffet breakfast is huge with pastries, hot food, omelettes, cheeses, fruit, and my favourite - ful, the Egyptian broad beans. Also, there are supermarkets and shops 5 minutes' walk away, which is good.
It is a great place to stay, and very reasonably priced for where it is located, and for the facilities it provides.
All in all, I highly recommend this hotel for anyone travelling solo, in a group, as a family, and on business. It is a hotel that has a welcoming personal touch whilst providing great facilities. Many thanks Grand Pyramids Hotel for many enjoyable stays!
Ask for a room that looks directly out over the pyramids. You also get more sunshine in these rooms.
