Oasis Hotel
Ranked #13 of 42 Hotels in Giza
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights in October for the purpose of its proximity to the Pyramids. On a good day, Cairo traffic allowing, its about a 10 minute drive.
Hotel rooms are made up of individual outdoor units spread out over a large area, reminiscent of an army barracks. Access to all rooms is through a large sliding glass door. The room itself was clean and comfortable. The bathroom extremely spacious. The TV, a small antiquated 14" set had a good selection of channels. No tea or coffee making available.

The restaurant is a large area divided between and indoor section and outdoor dining beside the pool. There is also a terrace bar overlooking the pool. Large plasma tvs with football showing are ubiquitous! There is a quiet Italian restaurant on the second floor which serves great heart stopping cuisine!

All in all, happy with the experience and would have stayed longer if need be.

This hotel is supposedly close to the Pyramids, but that is its only advantage.
We found it more like a prison than a hotel. It is surrounded on 3 sides by a large fence, with the 4th side being a very busy road with no footpath, and nothing to walk to, anyway.
Plus, how can they charge for wifi access in this day and age? They wee the only hotel we experienced in 2 weeks of travelling in Jordan and Egypt that did tis.

The hotel was quite average, as we expected high class hotel. Maybe, max 4 star hotel... Location of the hotel is not so good, better look for another hotel.
Service, waiters, host and other personal, we couldn't see at all...it is good in one hand, but in other hand, you can not order a drink, meal, shisa...nothing. I couldn't feel any emotions, or welcoming.

I spent 3 nights there as part of a tour and I did enjoy it. The wifi was, even though a little expensive, very good, with excellent coverage all over the hotel, and you don't have to keep logging in. The rooms were a little outdated, and had no tea or coffee set. The welcome pack was helpful, and the restaurants were slow but eventually good. The spa is very expensive for egypt - 50E£, and the massage I had was far too intimate for my liking! The pool needs more loungers and the arabic music blaring from the speakers should be turned down or off, trying to go to sleep for a 4am wake up call with such loud music was almost impossible. The breakfast was plain but good.
The main critism I had was that this hotel, being so upmarket, should be a place of calm for visitors. However, while lying by the pool, I would have the staff staring at me, making me feel very uncomfortable, and on the last day one walked past me and said "very nice". This was completely unacceptable but as I was very late to meet a friend, I didn't have time to complain.
With that main problem sorted out, it would be very nice.

5 star is an extreme overstatement. I had dinner at their restaurant, the food itself was not great (they serve cheese & tomato baked lampchops?!) - a dinner that should have lasted just over an hr lasted almost 2 1/2 hrs as staff are ignorant. I had to walk my money up to waiters to get change. By the way, breakfast is also fairly horrendous.
The rooms were okay, decor really out of date, no kettles or complimentary water, asked for a double room and got twin...afraid the list goes on.

Even though I only stayed 1 night, it's a defo waste of money.

Used this hotel as a base for 4 nights, covering 3 days of sightseeing in Cairo,Giza and surrounding area. Always a pleasure to return each night, a cold drink by the pool followed by dinner - either inside or poolside. Food of good quality, staff very helpfull. A very good buffet breakfast. This hotel is on the main road from Cairo / Giza to Alexandria - but you would not know it, the hotel and grounds are very quiet, but a long way from the centre, in fact not in walking distance of anything. About 20 minutes drive to main Pyramids, go with a guide/driver.

My husband and I stayed here 5 days, four nights throughout our tour in Egypt. We thought overall the experience was excellant. The food was better than most places we ate. They provide an ample free breakfast buffet. The italian restaurant was good, etc... The staff are very attentive. Yes, the rooms are a bit out dated, but for the price and the fact that you will not be spending your whole day here- it's perfect!
The tooms are clean and so are the grounds, so why spend so much money on other choices!

Room Tip: maybe stay in newer building verses a bungalo...
