Among a number of these small hotels facing the site of the Great Pyramids, the best of all hotels I can quite certainly say "when it comes to the view" is this hotel where from its rooftop terrace is the "straight-ahead view" of the Sphinx & the mid-sized one of the three pyramids behind the Sphinx with also an "overall panorama" of all three pyramids seen pretty much in a long row from the biggest one on the right to the smallest one on the left (and where to enjoy that great view are also plenty of seats & umbrellas). And yes, apart from that phenomenal view from above are also: the "nice & filling" breakfast with a pretty good variety of items (like a mini-buffet plus an omelette); the comfort of a "fairly spacious" room with good-sized beds, some furniture, a flat-screen & an ensuite; and really quite an impressive guest service, I would say, provided by the mother & two sons who run the Hotel (friendly & helpful with everything I needed including arranging an in-house PCR test). And in the vibrant area around this place are not too many but a number of places to eat although I found them "somewhat pricey" (except the KFC actually located right beside this hotel building with meal options for reasonable prices).

The rating relates to the travel period March 2022 (Corona) and room 102, traveling as a couple without children. Normal requirements for equipment and food, no luxury travelers. Hotel in general With the rating you have to take into account that it is a guest house and not a hotel and that the nights are very cheap. We booked it for the view of the pyramids, that's the biggest plus. The guest house is very old from the outside and inside, with a renovation you could make a jewel out of it. From the roof terrace you have a fantastic view of the pyramids and you can see the light show for free in the evening. But you shouldn't expect too much from this, you can watch it for free, but we wouldn't pay money for it. As it seems usual in Egypt, the WiFi is very poor and not available on the roof terrace, for example. Pyramids in 2 minutes, small refreshments Kiosk in about 5 minutes walking distance. Meal Only breakfast is offered, which is very basic. There is unlimited and free 24-hour coffee, tea and water to take yourself. In the evening we ate at Abou Shakra, about 5 minutes away, we really liked the meals, only the service is bad and only cash payments are accepted. Room 102 First floor with a direct view of the pyramids. The rooms are very simple and old furnished, but absolutely clean. Unfortunately, the windows are poorly insulated, so the dogs barking at night can be heard very loudly. The air conditioning was great and heated the room up quickly given the surprisingly cold temperatures. There is no fridge or safe in the room, unfortunately no socket in the bathroom either. We could borrow a hair dryer for free at the reception, iron and ironing board are available in the coffee kitchen. Staff/service Very friendly staff and always helpful and available. As we booked 4 nights we were offered a free transfer from the airport to the hotel which worked great. For the way back to the airport we used this service again for 30 euros. The transfer takes about 2 hours during rush hour and only 45 minutes in the early morning. You can find more information and fotos about my trips on my Instagram account about_uli

WOW WOW WOW All about the views - totally mind blowing. The roof top area was fabulous. The streets were busy and a bit noisy - earplugs for at night. Mahmut was so so lovely and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Felt safe in the hotel and just wary on the streets. The views from our bedroom window will never be beat.

Best hospitality, amazing view from the room and also rooftop. Room 101 has the best pyramid view with large windows. Also enjoyed light and sound show from rooftop. Another interesting point, you will find the best priced souvenir from their own store. We purchased the painting at around half cost compared to another nearby store.

The people who run the hotel come first Nothing was too much trouble, and yet at no point did I feel boxed-in. I like to write and decided that the dining room was the best place to do this. The owners of the hotel were there too, sitting quietly reading, talking on their phones etc. I was made to feel very welcome within an entirely peaceful, almost serene environment. My ensuite room was spotless and spacious, with a very comfortable bed which enabled a level of sleep I rarely experience. You may want to take earplugs though, Egyptians are rightly famed for talking loudly, and they do this in the streets at all times of the day and night, without mercy. The breakfast was all I could eat, and I have a good appetite. The view of the pyramids is just astonishing, To me they seemed even more magnificent and impossible from my vantage at my bedroom window, than they did when I stood beneath them. Giza's economy is based on the pyramids, and with Covid, it was clear that people are struggling and becoming increasingly desperate. As the only tourist there during my visit, I was mobbed at every turn by 'guides', owners of camels, horses, buggies all trying to sell their wares. Taxi drivers who would slow down as if the idea of taking a cab had never occurred to me. It is an uncomfortable experience created by a desperate need on the part of the locals to earn money - the privilege made me feel guilty.

The view from our room's window was amazing, as you can see from the photos I uploaded. That was taken from the open window and the view from the rooftop is even more beautiful where you can also watch the light and sound show at night for free. The rooms are clean but very simple. From any of the hotels near the pyramids or city, download a White Noise app to your phone to play at night and it easily drowns out noise from the street. The five star rating I gave this hotel is based upon the incredible value of being right in front of the Sphinx and pyramids, having a very clean room, an excellent complimentary breakfast with made-to-order omelet, and complimentary bottled water 24/7. The staff is kind and helpful. We didn't know what to expect and were very happy here.

I have to admit, we arrived after dark and I was a little worried about the neighborhood. It appeared a little run down and there were some dogs running around. However my fears were unfounded. The host was waiting for us and escorted us from the curb to our room. The breakfast was good and you could take it to the roof, where you could also watch the pyramid light show. Here's the view from our room that welcomed us our first morning.

You will not get a better view of the pyramids anywhere in Giza.from our room window they were right in front of us (see photos)The room was big.Clean and comfortable.The bathroom was small but was fine.Breakfast was average.The staff were very friendly and helpful.Mahmoud was really helpful.We were able to watch the pyramids light show at night from the roof top.Again an amazing view and better then if we had been at the show .We did book 2 tours with the hotel.They did work out expensive.The first day we visited Dahshur.Saqqara and Giza.We did everything that we to do.This was great Nasser our guide was really knowledgable.He gave us great inside in to the pyramids and Egypt culture.This tour was well worth the money.The second tour was to Egyptian Museum.This was excellent .Don’t let Nasser take you to a restaurant called The Sunz Restaurant.The food is awful and ridiculously expensive.If you are going to visit the pyramids and stay in Giza.I highly recommend this guest House.
