“Expensive Internet Which Does Not Work Well!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

You know, I would avoid this place. For the price it is not worth it. The breakfast was unimpressive to say the least - fried bread, bland chicken sausage. Nothing to write home about. Service was ok. The Thai restaurant was nice (and this was the reason we came to stay at this hotel - and the location near the Pyramids). However, what really p*ssed me off was that the internet is not free. It is quite expensive in fact. And, to make matters worse, it is really really slow. In the end I had to cough up an extra $30 or so for a very frustrating use of internet. On that fact alone I would never return to the place. Seems like they are very cost conscious. I would recommend you stay at some other hotel - there are others also near the pyramids and, if you want a nice Thai dinner, you can just visit this hotel for that on an evening.

This is a fine hotel with great proximity to the pyramids (you can see them from the street). But it falls short of the other hotels of its name. The health club is actually not at the hotel but is a private building next door. The children's' play area and putt-putt course might as well not exist and the rooms are average. The food is pretty good and there is a decent Thai restaurant in the place if you want to skip the buffet. The pool was nice and clean but too cold to use during December. Overall, it is a fine place to stay but not one of the nicest places in Egypt.

Room Tip: None of the rooms are in a bad spot as most open to a courtyard. It isnt a large resort like other M...

We stayed at this hotel Nov. 24 to Nov. 27 2012 in order to visit the pyramids, Cairo Museum and Sphinx. Hotel was great and staff very accommodating. Excellent location to use as a base of day trips out to see various sights.
We were there during the demonstrations at Tahrir square. We felt very safe and there were few tourists at any of the locations we visited.

Room Tip: Because smoking is so pervasive be sure to book non-smoking accommodations. However, be prepared th...

A good location for visiting the Pyramids with entrance to Giza Plateau being only a few minutes away.
Rooms our party had were fine with comfortable beds and clean.
Only had breakfasts whilst there which had a pretty good choice of dishes, though the egg chef didn't seem to be on duty when most of the hotels guests were having their breakfast just showing up around 8.00 a.m. when most guests had already left for their days sightseeing.
Getting a cup of Tea or coffee seemed beyond their abilities when returning in the afternoons too. I suspect with tourist numbers being very low staff numbers had been lowered too.
However I should like to single out the concierge who was most helpful.
There is a bank (not the best exchange rate being offered) and a small gift shop at the hotel.
We spent our evening meals from this hotel, with the best meal being at Mena House.
Although the stay there was fine for what we needed, it is not a hotel I feel I could recommend.

We stayed in this supposed 4 star hotel - it is not - looks nice when you enter the reception area, the dining room inside is all fine too, food is okay couldn't complain at all. but the rooms or so called bungalows are another matter we had room 210 the room was poorly cleaned, the bed mad incorrectly, there was a previous occupants head grease on the headboard, stains on the bedding, rotting wood in the bathroom, cracks in walls, no bath mat, tv did not work - shall I go on - no but I will just to say we did not check the patio doors of the bungalow, each bungalow has these doors out onto a patio area to sit at - room 210's doors had been broken into and not repaired - lucky for us we took all of our valuables with us, but who knows what might have been there after we got back from dinner had we left anything ie camera etc. Hotel management thought it was amusing when I mentioned it the following morning - no wonder people have stuff stolen at Movenpick - see other reviews about this. I have written to Movenpick in Switzerland who were reporting my comments to the hotel but heard nothing further. - I understand The Oberoi is fabulous.

Room Tip: Don't bother - look for another hotel - I understand the Oberoi is fabulous.

This hotel had great customer service, food and other options (such as restaurants, breakfast, and tour options).
Hani, one of the hotel drivers, picked us up from the airport with no problems finding us. He is very knowledgeable of the city and region as a whole and is able to offer rides to other tour trips that you can create (e.g. to Alexandria). His conversation about the current situation in Egypt and the city itself was very entertaining, informative, and valuable.
Mahmoud, one of the evening receptionists, was very accommodating, professional and helpful with anything that we asked. The whole staff made us feel welcome and tried to address any inquiries we had.
Breakfast was good and there was a variety of choice available. We personally stuck with the egg station, bread and yogurt formula and were satisfied until lunch. For dinner, the Thai restaurant was ON POINT!!! Good food from a bonafide Thai cook.
If you do not like the food at the hotel, there are many other hotels you can walk to or go to the Felfela restaurant for felafel or shwarma.
The room itself was very nice. We don't smoke but we upgraded to a king bed (smoking room was only available) and we smelled no signs of smoke in the bungalow.

If we go back to Egypt, we'd most definitely book more nights there.

My husband and I stayed here recently and stayed in one of the bungalows. It was very
spacious and the bathroom was well appointed. Breakfast was adequate, but the highlight
for us was the Thai restaurant. We had excellent red curry on two occasions. The pyramids
are only about five minutes away (depending on the traffic)!!! Overall a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Stay in the bungalows
