This inn was by far my favorite part of our time in Giza. The people who work here are so friendly and helpful. The restaurant has amazing food with an even more amazing view of the pyramids. We loved our time here and will definitely come back if we're ever in Giza again.

Property's Favorite Review
Our stay at the Great Pyramid Inn was wonderful! The rooms were very clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the view from our balcony was spectacular (as seen by the photos I submitted). They picked us up from the Airport for free and were able to provide many types of safe and fun tours. The rooftop restaurant had even more incredible views and provided a delicious complimentary breakfast and the restaurant was excellent. In addition, the view of the light and sound show of the pyramids from the rooftop was beautiful and could be viewed for free. We will definitely stay here again and recommended fully!!

We would highly recommend staying at Great Pyramid Inn. It is hard to describe all the positives but we will highlight the key. 1. Amazing location - rooms facing pyramids are literally overlooking Sphinx & Pyramids and allow for private enjoyment in the morning (where there is still no crowds) and in the evenings (to watch the Light & Sound show and see pyramids lit up in color) 2. Amazing attentive, personal service - Hager as an operations coordinator will arrange everything for you (tours, transportation, shopping), fully customized, hassle free and at good price, she is very responsive and fast; Alibaba at the rooftop restaurant is just an amazing, warm, and kind person - it was like visiting with family - he will always greet you will a big smile (and a hug) and can arrange for you the best view in the house (and a bottle of Egyptian wine)!; and Aladdin at the front desk is just a jack of all trades who can arrange anything locally in a heartbeat 3. Breakfast is a feast - definitely great value for money 4. Clean, safe, friendly, convenient and hassle free - all that you may want from your stay in Giza. We will definitely be back. We actually stayed there 3x times during our 3-week trip thru Egypt and we booked our parents there as well for 2 nights. We would say the room with balcony overseeing the pyramids I worth the extra money! Enjoy!

Our entire stay from moment of check in to check out was exceptional. The manager, Aladdin, went above and beyond to make our stay the best. The restaurant manager, Alibaba, treated us like royalty - nicest guy and we are thankful for his great service and nice humor. The rooms were great, the entire Egyptian vibe was an experience, and with the Great Pyramids from the rooftop - plus the nightly light shows, with Hookah... Wow. Dream experience at a phenomenal value. Can't beat this place for the Pyramids experience. Side notes: bottled water, great breakfast included, AC kept us cool, and wifi was usable throughout the building - but don't expect to do video conferencing here. Highly recommend!! Enjoy. Daniel

Stayed at the great pyramid inn for two days. This is the best place if you plan on staying in Giza and visiting the pyramids. They provided free transportation from the airport and had complimentary breakfast which was very nice. The views from the rooftop are amazing and you get to watch the pyramids light show while having dinner! The staff was friendly and helpful. They provide day tours and helped me in booking 2 amazing tours. The first one was Dashur, Memphis, Saqqara and the great pyramids. The second was the Islamic and Coptic Cairo tour with khan el Khalili. I had Mahmoud and Mohamed as my tour guide and transportation. This made my first few days in Cairo very comfortable. They were flexible and simply amazing to work with. They listened and tailored the tours as per my needs. I would choose them again if I ever visit Cairo again. Keep it up Great Pyramid Inn!
