“What a dump”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place is a terrible hotel. The facilities are horrible and so dirty. the restaurant was slow and low quality. it has a pool but you couldn't use it because of whatever was growing on the surface of the water. Never again. Pay a bit extra and go somewhere better.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

We stayed here as part of a Kamuka tour and we were absolutely disgusted.

Our room had severe mould in the bathroom, there was blood on the linen and the entire room smelled. Our first night we were kept up by extremely loud music with a baseline that made the bedside lamps rattle. Upon complaining we were told this was from the night club across the street and nothing could be done.

This was a blatant lie as we discovered when a group of us went for breakfast and pressed the wrong button in the elevator which opened up to a club!! On the floor directly above us in the hotel!! We were shocked to see the remnants of some very drunk men and scantily clad women looking at us with gaping mouths, we hastily pushed the door close button.

During our stay we heard screaming and shouting at early hours which was absolutely terrifying and I did not feel safe once, meaning I got no sleep and was in no mood to go out during the day.

We complained to Kamuka upon our return and they informed us they had received multiple complaints about the hotel and were in the process of changing, I am unsure if this is true.

Please save yourself and DO NOT STAY HERE!! Even with a tour group I felt unsafe and I hope others can avoid our experience.

The time we spent in the hotel can not be called excellent. We were expecting far better. Cleanliness in the Hotel, it's room and specially the Restaurant which is being used for breakfast needs to be renovated immediately.

Room Tip: Select a room facing Pyramids.

At this time (March 2011) there is still a lot of building work going on - constant noise of drills grinders and welding. Thre are no shops, hairdressers, no gym or spa and the pool is NOT heated. Fantastic views of pyramids from the pool area but few rooms can see them. Very few rooms have balconies though they are spacious and clean. We were constantly being interupted by staff wanting to make up the room or carry out work. Lots of friendly staff but the service was slow and I thought prices were on the high side (eg £20 for bottle of local wine). Food was adequate but lacked imagination in the presentation. In short as a tourist I was disappointed.

Room Tip: good

After arriving in Cairo to discover our origional hotel had closed, spent first night in a 'no star' dump organized by Tour Company. Next 2 nights at Pyramid's View courtesy of Accomodation booking company, as this was all they could organize. Room was spacious, but ordinary. Staff were'nt particularly helpful, except the ones looking for tips. Wouldn't swim in the pool as it had little bubbles floating on top from what, who knows. Breakfast was very average, consisting of breads and not much else unless one is happy guessing at what it is you are eating. Generally, the place looked the worse for wear. We were warned by our travel agent to deduct at least 2 stars from advertised rating, and not to believe the pictures of rooms etc. Reading other reviews, this seems to be the norm with Cairo.

My wife and I spent one night in this hotel that is claiming to have 4 stars, but could be categorized as a 3 star if not even 2 star-hotel. According to what we have read before going there -the hotel biggest advantage is that it has Pyramids view in 45 out of its 75 rooms but as usual we got one of the other 30 rooms that have swimming pool view. We can't say that we enjoyed our stay - the looking old furniture of the room and bathroom that needed to be reconditioned years ago plus the noisy old air-conditioner didn't give us a warm welcome. When we tried to go on the room terrace it turned out that it's a big one shared with several other rooms.The nearby mosque woke up very early in the morning and only the relatively good breakfast and the affordable price would make me say that you can spend there not more than one night.
