The hotel is very close to Giza in a busy street with restaurants within walking distance. As for the taxi service, I was disappointed for a couple of reasons: our taxi was late by more than one hour in the first day, but mainly for what happened at the Giza Pyramids. As soon as we arrived (my girlfriend and I), we were introduced to an "official guide" by the driver... this guide seemed very friendly... he took us to a location in which we couldn't see if one could actually walk close to the pyramids..we were told that we needed to ride horses to visit the pyramids because they were miles apart and that it was impossible to enjoy the pyramids without them. The guide was very aggressive when I said I wouldn't pay 450 EGP for the ride, I ended up paying 200 EGP, but was very disappointed once we started the tour... the use of horses is completely unnecessary. The horses allow you to get far from the crowd to take some pictures, but its use is far from being indispensable. My disappointment derives from the fact that I felt misguided and cheated by the guide (and consequently by the driver).
One last point: when the driver took us to the airport he asked for money to pay the airport entry fee, because according to him he didn't have any. Once again, it is not about the money, but the way one should treat a customer. Can you imagine a taxi driver going to the airport without money to pay the entrance fee? I can't...
