Positive Reviews

Rooftop lounge space

Guests love spending time on the rooftop, whether its to enjoy the view or relax with a drink. The terrace offers an stunning lookout over the Pyramids and the Sphinx. According to visitors, its an excellent vantage point for the Sound and Light Show, much better than what one can get from the paid viewing area.

Fantastic food

Most guests enjoy the homemade food at this hotel. In addition to a nice breakfast, the owners can prepare an authentic Egyptian meal upon request and will cater to food requirements. Guests are also impressed with the generous portions and reasonable prices.

Convenient location

Aside from the advantage of being within walking distance of the Pyramids, guests say the hotel is well-situated for exploring both Giza and Cairo. In addition, guests like that there are many dining options around the hotel.

Negative Reviews

Pushy service

Travellers dislike the pushiness of the staff. According to reviews, the hotel staff are very forceful with their customers when trying to sell souvenirs or tour packages, which guests think are highly overpriced. Those who arrange tours from the front desk say the guides are also highly adamant on receiving tips for every little action.

Limited hot water

Guests recommend taking quick showers while staying here, as the water runs out very quickly. Hot water tends to be available for only minutes at a time, and the water heater takes a while to reheat.

Wear and tear

Guest impressions suggest that the property is overdue for an update, on the inside and exterior. Rooms show visible wear and tear and need a furniture and fixture update.
