If I was suppose to stay in the room that I initially reserved for the New Years celebration with my husband then I would’ve enjoyed my stay a little more. Instead of having a room with no view of the most beautiful wonders of the world.

First and foremost the view from the roof top is impeccable. The staff was amazing- Youseff, Rania, Ali Baba & Sam made our 2 week stay one the most memorable trips we have taken yet. Very accommodating, helpful in everyway and treated us like family. We plan on taking another trip to Egypt in the near future and will stay here again. We strongly recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a 5 star hotel experience and service at a 3 star price.

We have stayed at many hotels in Giza near the pyramids....and we must say GREAT PYRAMID INN is the best by far! We were so impressed by the cleanness and quality of the rooms, rooftop restaurant, and overall appearance of the hotel. The STAFF has been truly amazing. Ali Baba in the restaurant is truly the heart of this hotel. He warmly welcomes each guest and makes each one feel special. He took great care of our group. (we booked 3 rooms with this hotel). Rania and Sam also were wonderful servers and made us feel welcome. Food was great. Breakfast very nice. The manager offered a free BBQ dinner one night, which was a lovely gesture. Thank you! You can be sure, this will be our 1st choice hotel for our returning trips. The location is also excellent... right in front of the entrance to Sound and Light Show (which affords a great view of the evening show from the rooftop). The location is also helpful for giving directions to Uber. The view of the pyramids is exactly as pictured. We whole-heartedly give you 5 stars!

This property is amazing its right next to the pyramids with amazing views. Everything is new and updated. The roof top has the best view with lots od space to eat and drink cappuccinos.

This is our second time staying at this fantastic hotel. Amenities and service was great. They catered to anything you wanted. Dinner and breakfast was fantastic. Upon checking out they wanted to know if they could do anything better. They can do better than perfect. Amazing stay with a fantastic view.

-Great location. -Has a restaurant on roof top which was somewhat unique for hotels on that street. Please note that “steak” in Egypt is not the same thing as “steak” in the USA-suggest you stick to local specialties. -We got to watch the pyramid sound and light show across the street from the roof top at 7pm every day. -Our room had a view of the pyramids. Suggest you get 3rd floor room if you want a clear view of the Sphinx. -Complementary hardy breakfast with multiple items. -Airport pick up was complementary but taxi yo airport was 350 Egyptian pound (~$20) and taxi did arrive in time. General Egypt consideration apply everywhere, ie planning your activities in advance, and knowing how much everything costs. We skipped the camel and bourse rides. Would defiantly not do the horse drawn carriage rides as the asphalt slope in hard on the horses-hard climb up, and they lose their footing on the way down. Last but not least, always pay foreign ticket prices at the gates and don’t go for guides who promise you Egyptian prices and do a shady deal on the side (the country needs the money and you don’t need the hassle). Once inside you will only be asked for your tickets once at the Sphinx but never again so don’t beilive anyone with a badge asking for tickets near the pyramids themselves. Bon voyage

Excellent location and friendly staff! :) Thank you!

Exc hotel, the best low budget hotel I have stayed with top notch service. Would recommend this hotel to any person.

If we ever make it back to Egypt we will stay here for sure. However, they didn’t have our reservation from Orbitz. They straightened everything out and the hotel is amazing. You must take in the light show from their restaurant.

Check in process was very fast. Staff: Very professional and friendly. They take care of anything you may need very quickly. Anything you may need like towels or water for your refrigerator in your room...its gonna be done within minutes. Meals: The continental breakfast is a real continental breakfast where they bring you a big meal to your table. Keep in mind this breakfast is a very full breakfast so you won't be hungry while out enjoying the sites and culture. And the fresh guava juice is sooo good. Room service: Was very fast and accurate. I ordered a pizza and I ate it all...it was good! I didn't need anything else because it was already how it should be in the beginning. Tours/activities: Okay this is main thing here. In Egypt there are many "guides" that claim to know every place. But, you may luck up and get a good one and you may not. And the last thing you want is to spend money and not get to visit or see everything or miss out on something. This hotel offers tours for EVERYTHING t see and do in Egypt. They have tours that I asked some locals about and the locals didn't have much knowledge about. These tours are very affordable. And you get taken care of while on tours like meals, drop off/pick up,driver gives you their phone number to stay in contact with,etc. Location: Okay, this place is located right at the gate to the Sphinx,Pyramids,temples,etc.Step out the hotel, walk right about 45 secs you will be at the gate to enter to Pyramids.

I can not imagine a better location to stay in Giza. The proximity to the Sphinx gate and ability to view and hear the nightly Pyramid Sound and Light show from the roof patio make this a very unique property. The streets of Giza are loud and active till late at night, but since the property is located withing a barricade for the pyramid area, there is no road noise at night. We were contacted the day prior to our stay via the Whatsapp phone app to let us know where our driver would meet us at the airport. Having never been to Cairo, the van drive to the hotel in Giza at night was an exciting adventure, though at no time did we feel unsafe. Somehow the traffic chaos just seems to work. We were greeted by the incredibly friendly staff with freshly squeezed OJ and given a description of the available tours. There was no pressure to use the tours, though we were already planning on it. Ahmed, Aladin and others who's names I did not catch were fantastic in providing prompt, friendly, and courteous service that is as good as any 5 star hotel I've stayed in. Our tours with Mohamed were excellent. He is a knowledgeable tour guide with good command of English and a great sense of humor. We especially enjoyed the camel ride he arranged with Mahmoud as the camel guide, We had time for photos on the camels with great views of the pyramids and even able to gallop the camels individually (not tied in a train or led by someone on foot). Overall a great visit to an amazing plac

Dear Canady, Warm greetings from Great Pyramid Inn, we highly appreciate taking the time to review our property and kindly accept our sincerely apologize regarding the room with no view as the room which you booked was out of service for just one night so you stayed in the room with the view after that night for the rest of your stay also we gave you a very special discount for your stay and invited you for a free dinner. We look forward to welcome you back and to try to compensate you again for room issue.
