Excellent accommodations and friendly service near the Sphinx
Guests at the nicely appointed Grand Pyramids Hotel can reach the great pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx in minutes. In fact, this location just outside of Cairo is so fantastic that travelers can also be at Cairo University, the Giza Zoo or the Hanging Church in mere minutes. Choose from a number of great restaurants on site, including the enchanting Bedouin Tent, where classic Egyptian cuisine rules the menu. Work out in the fitness center, relax with a cold drink by the outdoor pool, visit the steam room or schedule a massage to unwind.
Highlights
  • Separate pool for children
  • La Pergola for meals in the shade
  • Many rooms have a view of the Giza Pyramids
Rooms
Relax in comfort at the Grand Pyramids Hotel while enjoying a view of one of the Seven Wonders of the World on the near horizon. Most have a view of the Giza Pyramids, but expect all rooms and suites to have large LCD televisions with satellite channels, high-speed Internet access (fees apply) and air conditioning. Additional space, private balconies, and upgraded amenities come with suites at the Grand Pyramids Hotel.
Features

See nearly every noteworthy attraction in and around Cairo from the superb location of the Grand Pyramids Hotel. A trip to Cairo is not complete without a tour of the great pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. But do not miss out on other fascinating, albeit less famous, sights. The Babylon Fortress, Monastery and Church of St. George, Coptic Mueum, Sultan Hussan Mosque and Khan el-Khalili bazaar are all less than 10 miles from the hotel.

 

No matter which adventure is sought, rest assured that the friendly staff, excellent on-site restaurants and comfortable accommodations will ensure a relaxing evening at the Grand Pyramids Hotel. Have a hearty Italian meal at La Palma D'ore, something from the Thai menu at Bua Khao or sample traditional Egyptian fare in the gorgeous Bedouin Tent. For those exhausted from an exciting day, room service is available 24 hours a day.

needs a good cleaning throughout

The hotel was a bargain at $36 per night for what you get. The room was nice but dirty...the walls in the room had black dirt or soot on them and if you rub up against them your clothes need to be washed. It looks like they never wipe down walls or clean the drapes. the carpets were dirty and dusty and there was mold and mildew in the bathroom. The nicest thing about this hotel was the compound was walled off so you are isolated from all the dirt and grime of being in Cairo and inside the compound was a nice pool, landscaped areas, outdoor bars and a bedouin tent for entertainment in the evening. Location was also good with access to the pyramids only a few minutes away and only a few seconds to get on the Ring road which circles the city.

avoid the hotel taxi, high rates and there are plenty of taxis just outside the hotel where you can negotiate MUCH lower rates.

Nice Hotel

I was happy with this hotel. It was my first time in Cairo but since then I have been back three times now. I have to admit I didn't stay in the hotel much during my trip there, but when I was the service was always very good. On my first night I woke up at 2 AM and ordered food, the staff was prompt to bring it right up and the food was pretty nice as well. I would say for the price and location being so close to the pyramids its a great place to pick. The only con that I can remember was the low water pressure. Other than that the staff was always friendly and helpful. And my room had a good selection of channels and was very clean, big and comfortable with a great view of the pool and pyramids in the distance.

No disappointments at this hotel

Not sure about the location as we had a tour guide pickup us up each day. The hotel was very enjoyable and would stay there again. The room was large, clean and quite. The pyramids and the night laser show were great. Also, loads of fun riding the camel. If your have the time drive to Alexandria. You won't be disappointed.

Don't believe the hype

The water pressure was terrible. It took an hour to fill the bath tub. Every place reeked of cigarette smoke. My wife is pregnant so this was unacceptable.

Decent hotel

Pros: * The hotel has excellent service from room service to hotel taxis. * Rooms are large and clean. * Two restaurants and a bank within the hotel itself. Cons: * Our room was facing the pool where they had a band every night and the music would be very loud well into the night. So you have to wake up early then that might be a problem. * The hotel faces a overpass freeway and there is nothing on the street below the freeway other than debris.
