This hotel is in a great location with views of Sphinx and the three Pyramids. It is the best sight during sunrise and sunset. Light show can be seen from the terrace free. It was awesome! Rooms are basic with low water pressure. No elevators but the staff are helpful in bringing luggage. Little noisy from camel riders and vendors... More

My fiancé and I stayed here a few weeks ago. The view is really as amazing as the pictures and website. We woke up every morning to the pyramids and watched the light show from the terrace at night. In addition, the guys who run the guest house are EXTREMELY helpful and friendly (especially Mahmoud). They helped us with every... More

It's not the need of great architecture that makes a hotel stay remarkable. It is the sight you enjoy when looking out of the window. To wake up in the morning and look at the Pyramids and the Sphinx is something, money can't buy. Almost. At an affordable price you get a room with a view (when booked the Pyramid... More

The Guardian Guest House is a traditional hotel located in Giza next to the sphinx and pyramids. The location could not be any better. It is a walk over the road to access the site or (even better) a walk up the stairs to the roof to sit and soak in the history of the sphinx and pyramids - my... More

I read alot of reviews on all the hotels in Cairo and Giza and majority of the reviews had around 70% negative comments other than the Guardian Guest house and now i know why. Guest house: Basic guest house with beds and en suites and air conditioning in the rooms and a view from the windows. No Tv but seriously... More

Unbelievable stay at the Guardian Guest House. Beautiful view (has to be seen to be believed, trust me, pay the extra for the pyramid view room!) Cheap price, good service. Only minor down side was the bathroom was a little dirty (not a major issue at all, but there has to be some negative!) Mohammed and his staff were very... More

We were a group of 5, 2 couples and a 9 yr old child, on a 9 day Egypt trip with Cairo/Giza as the starting point. And we couldn't have chosen a better place to start the trip. Booking: With a bit of trepidation we'd done the booking online, this being a B&B place and not a hotel chain. No... More

This guest house is a steal!! it`s location is excellent. A stone`s throw from the pyramids (about 30 seconds on foot), about 0.1 miles from shops and restaurants if you are hungry or peckish, very comfortable, (beds you can sink into) and clean rooms and very accommodating and polite staff. I had a bad cold. On the day I left,... More
