Great resort to stay in near Cairo, without all the craziness of the city. Our family of three adults have just arrived back home (NY) after a 4-night stay at the Le Meridien Pyramids in Giza. (August 5, 2006). Our room was on the forth floor, and since we had the air-conditioner on most of the time, I did not hear any of the street noises that the other reviewer spoke of. I have read that the city hotels can even have more street noise.

We were so very happy to be out of the city of Cairo and in this relaxed resort. We enjoyed the large swimming pool with swim-up bar with the Pyramids in view. Lounge chairs were usually easy to find, unless you ventured down in the heat of midday. Service at the pool bar was quick. Also, the bell caps and front desk people were all helpful and cheerful.

Our plan had breakfast included so we ate every morning at the breakfast buffet: wide variety of foods, all well prepared. Loved the pancakes, fruit, and made to order eggs. The hostess is sweet, she even remembered our room number and knew our sleepy daughter who usually came down after us. Getting that second cup of coffee did take a bit of time: fill up two cups (if you can) on their first pass.

I also want to note the quick closing doors of the elevators. Step lively if you do not want to be hit.

Only reason I cannot give a 5 -Excellent rating is because of a little miss understanding about our room arrangements. Since our adult daughter was traveling with us, we had booked a room with a sofa bed, however, on our arrival, we were placed in a beautiful room on the 5th floor, but the room had only one king size bed. We were all very tired from all day air travel, and wanted to take a quick nap so I wanted to solve this problem right away. After many phone calls down to housekeeping and guest services who, each time, promised to look for a roll away bed, I finally had to go directly down to reception and ask to speak to a manager in person. Only then did we receive a room to accommodate all three of us, still with pyramid view.

We had a late flight on the last day (Friday). Since we are Starwood members we asked and received a late check-out. That made the last day less hectic. Even enjoyed more pool-time.

I also want like to compliment our tour operator. If you are looking for a good personalized tour, check out Five Star Tours on their website. They planned a 4 day tour just for our family that covered all the major points in Cairo and Giza. They were great! Very attentive, car and driver just for the three of us and right there when we were ready. The tour guides were very informative and sincere. He arranged everything from pick up at the airport to drop off. Lunches at the best locations were included in our price. Pyramid tours, light show, Egyptian museum, shopping, etc. Contact Tamer Kamal the tour leader, fivestar-egypt

Added bonus: It seems that the better hotels are the ideal locations for local weddings. We saw two while we were there. What fun to see!

I would like to add that my decision to book this hotel was largely based on prior reviews and comments I had read on this site. I knew what to expect and believe me, knowing the pros and cons and then making a decision based on others reviews can turn a good vacation into a great one. I checked the reviews for many of the other hotels in Cairo, but this hotel had consistently better comments. Thank you to all the reviewers who shared their thoughts.

Stayed three days in July at this truly plush hotel with my wife and teenage sons whilst we visited the Pyramids (very close) and Sphinx, Egyptian Museum in Cairo.

The hotel is large 500+ rooms, but very clean, good choice of eating areas, and a very good pool area.

We had 'Pyramid view' rooms (extra) and the views from the hotel are pretty good. Ask for a PV room overlooking the pool area that is nice.

Downsides are: the hotel is right on a ring-road (near the eight wonder of the world roundabout) and the traffic noise and fumes are a bit annoying and the noise goes on pretty much all night.

The lift doors are near lethal if you dont leap out quickly enough.

Also, reception/serving staff and very slow, and really need to get to grips with a bit of flexibility. Try and deviate from the 'standard' and you'll get blank looks, and probably a committee meeting lasting thirty to forty minutes before you'll get your answer. Oh and beware the charging. You'll see a price in the hotel but this is then subject to 'stamp', 'city tax' and 'service charge' - in effect adding 25 percent to your every bill.

Otherwise hotel staff very very pleasant (as are the vast majority of Egyptians).

Perhaps the best hotel experience that I have had. The location to the Pyramids is fantastic – about 5 minute walk. The area around the hotel was different than I had thought – had visions of more wide-opened spaces – but the area is very built up and this can encroach on your sense of history. Nonetheless, sitting in the room with the Pyramids in our windows was still a pretty nice thing. In my opinion, you should definitely spring for a Royal Club room - - the extra height will give you better views of the Pyramids and the staff at this level are extremely nice. We were lavished with a lot of personal attention and visits to the lounge were pleasant. Personal attention, great service - - a great stay. Highly recommend if you want to stay near Pyramids.

This was our first trip to Egypt and staying at the Le Meridien Pyramids proved to be an excellent choice. Our room overlooked the pool complex and gave a wonderful view of the pyramids. The food was excellent and the very courteous staff could not do enough for us. We were very happy to stay in the Giza area rather than chaotic Cairo, although the museum and Mohammed Ali mosque have to be seen. One thing, our travel agents brochure states the pyramids are within walking distance which proved not so. In fact any attempt to walk anywhere from the hotel proved impossible with constant harrasment from vendors and taxi drivers all wanting us to part with our money. After 5 nights we moved on to Le Meridien Luxor another excellent choice and great base for visiting The Valley of the Kings, Temples and trips on the Nile. We strongly reccomend both hotels and would not hesitate staying in them again.

We spent 3 nights here in May at the beginning of our holiday and loved every minute of it. Everything about this hotel was right - really friendly and helpful staff, clean, very attentive service and a comfortable room. We arrived very late in the evening and were looked after in the way we have come to expect in 5 star hotels. On both days we hired a car and driver through the hotel - good value, very informative and helpful. We were lucky enough to have a wedding on both evenings which was great as they make use of the public areas - the first wedding had a whirling dervish as the entertainment which we all enjoyed along with the guests. Altogether an excellent hotel in a great position.
