    This place felt like a home aside from my home from the moment I stepped in. The staff is like family and treat you as their own. The views are breathtaking and the convenience of having the time of your life in Egypt was priceless.

  • 2.0.Poor

    I didn't like anything about this place! The hotel is clean at the reception but the rooms are poor. Electric cables hanging out the walls sockets are loose, the toilet is so close to shower screen you cannot sit on it properly. Cockroach in the shower. The owner is a rip off merchant, dont trust them. Cost me $600 for the couple of hours i spet with them. Not impressed at all! Terrible place!

    Unclean, still being built. Breakfast on roof good however no where to eat or go in evenings. We ordered meal for evening. Not cooked on premises by time food delivered it was cold. Dangerous electric cables/wires. Excellent view of pyramids. Family run business, very helpful owner and staff. Cleanliness was big issue. Partner refused to stay, wanted to go home. Contacted Expedia to move to another hotel, cost additional £450 !!! It was either that or find flight home. No alternative but to pay.

    Astonishing, perfect place for the sightseeing, rooms facing the pyramids. The breakfast was good and fresh. The owner was really nice to us and of course he got that Egyptian sense of humor. I'll definitely recommend this place. Nice time guys!

    Easily one of the best views of the Pyramids in all of Giza! The staff at the hotel was available 24/7. They were friendly and always went above and beyond to assist! Nearby eateries and shops were convenient. Very safe location as well! I would certainly stay there again!

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This place is so wonderful. It is literally only 15 metres away from the front entrance of the Great Pyramids. This means that every night you can watch the Pyramid ‘light and sound show’ from the comfort of the hotel’s rooftop balcony for free (which saves you over 200 pounds!) And because it is so close to the entrance it is in a very safe and quiet area that is protected by security guards and police 24x7. The hotel is run by a family that provides the warmest and friendliest of hospitality and is happy to assist with anything, at anytime. The host, Tamer assisted me with organising all my tours and was able to offer combine multiple tours into two days at a very good price. He also organised me to have the most amazing tour guide, Sherif Khattab who was incredibly knowledgable — not only of all the pyramids but also at the Egyptian Museum, but also with the Alexandria catacombs and Alexandria Library. Sherif also provided great recommendations and took me to places that I could buy gifts for my whole family. In addition to this, he did all the negotiating with will all locals whenever I needed to buy goods or services. For all tours he never left my side and protected me from being hassled by any locals and did all purchases of transactions or services on my behalf to ensure I was never ripped off. If you wish for a genuine, warm, safe and memorable experience, then look no further.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    This was a top-notch place for budget travel. I would say this is the CLOSEST HOTEL to the Sphinx & Pyramids in all of Egypt! The ticket booth to see the Sphinx & Pyramids is about 1,000 feet from the front door. You can see the light show for free (on the upper deck) and avoid the pesky crowds. There is also a Pizza Hut/KFC within a few-thousand feet of the hotel :). I would say the hotel was refurbished/opened in the past 90-days, so, better accommodations than most budget hotels. The toilets, beds, tv, infrastructure is new. The staff is very helpful and kind....and no, I don’t work for the hotel. Note: While in Cairo, utilize Uber (cheaper) and realize a lot of places have small water heaters for, no 1-hour showers that are warm here. I HIGHLY recommend staying here. It was MUCH better than all my budget hotels I stayed at in Egypt. Also...tip...seems to be a lot of dog-fights at the bottom of the Sphinx’s feet around midnight each night (wild animals everywhere in Egypt). If you are a light sleeper, bring earplugs...(this is obviously not the hotel’s fault). Erin from San Diego, CALIFORNIA, USA

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The one thing I can say about this hotel is YOU are treated like family! We arrived late evening due flight delay. Our driver sent by the hotel waited a couple hours to pick us up. He was a pleasant young man. Once we got to the hotel we were shown our room and the two roof top decks. The temperature was cold and as we sat with a welcome drink on top deck overlooking the pyramids my companion was shivering so the employee gave her his jacket. It was late but they brought us a pizza. We booked two fabulous private tours through the hotel. The meals were superb and the service excellent. The view of the 3 pyramids and the Sphinx could not have been any better. Highly recommend this Inn. Thank you for the hospitality.
