The famous Sphinx Guesthouse of Giza in Egypt, is a well presented family owned hotel situated just one minute from the entrance to the Egyptian Pyramids park of the Giza plateau. We offer competitive rates for ...More part or full board and have a selection of single or double rooms available. Many of our rooms have views over the Sphinx and Pyramids and the roof terrace directly faces the ancient Sphinx monument, a perfect place to sit in the evening to watch the famous Pyramid light show. Due to our unique location with a view offered by no other hotel in Giza we are often home to famous celebrities and writers, you never know who you might meet at our breakfast tables.The Sphinx Guesthouse is also a popular venue for Egyptian tour groups and conferences, please ask about our special negotiated rates for group bookings. There is also a wide selection of Egyptian papyrus souvenirs and traditional aromatherapy oils available in our own shop. We pride ourselves on offering tailored services and can help arrange taxis, special food requests, tour guides and even camels!Being located directly across the street from the Sphinx, we are the closest accommodations available to the Giza Plateau. All rooms equipped with air conditioning and mini fridge. There are several nice restaurants (Kentucky Fried Chicken and small market just across the street), as well as banks, ATMS, currency exchange, and pharmacy within a few minutes’ walk.Come for the Sphinx & Pyramid view, but stay for the family atmosphere.
