Beautiful hotel Great location Would have liked to have wash rags Lacked wash rags Lacked vending machines for snacks Lack store for snacks

Pyramid view from your room was amazing. Beautiful Pool. Hotel, room and Staff were top notch.

The hotel, rooms, restaurants, pool area, and evening entertainment was excellent. The staff were amazing and attentive. The only issue was the spa. I had a decent massage twice. I had a facial and it was horrible. The woman essentially washed my face, applied a scrub, left the room, came back, applied lotion and said we were done. That isn't a facial for anyone who is versed in them. Prices were appropriate, but know that facials are poor. Pool was amazing. Great staff. Overall, great visit and I would stay there again.

We stayed four nights at the Le Meridien. Everything about this hotel was wonderful. The staff is helpful, knowledgeable and polite. The breakfast buffet is one of the best we have ever experienced. The evening dining menus in the restaurants are varied, reasonable, delicious and plentiful. There was a singer at the restaurant that was very comfortable to listen to. His music was varied and just great for background music and easy listening. We asked the front desk about walking outside and they said it was safe to do so, but that we may encounter people wanting to sell us something, but if we did not want to buy, just say politely that we were not interested. We did not have any problems. A few blocks to the left of the hotel is a store selling papyrus called the Mena Papyrus Institute. These people sell authentic papyrus artwork. They are quite knowledgeable about the Egyptian Art and its meaning. We bought several pieces at a substantially reduced price.

Nice hotel with the Pyramids view. Clean facilities and good customer service

Room was perfect.... Located so close to Giza pyramids.... Staff was great!!!! Loved Egypt & definitely recommend this hotel!

I stay at this hotel for at least a few days almost every year when I come to Egypt. It has slowly been going downhill, but I still love it for the location and the amenities available. I came in August this year, 2016, and it was so incredibly crowded. Assuming this is a byproduct of the prices being so low. However, the service quality goes way down when it's crowded. The pool was so full that there were no chairs. This is a VERY family-friendly hotel so there are more kids than adults at times. Not a huge problem but worth a note since it seems August is really busy. When I got to the front desk (I stayed two separate times), it took forever for the check in process. Any time I went up to the front desk for a question, I would stand there and wait for someone to be ready - - worth a note: they're always ready, they won't even LOOK at you and make eye contact and the first person to raise their voice is who they will help. They don't care if you patiently wait for them - - part of this is cultural, I understand, but as a worldwide brand, they might want to make efforts to serve people who were standing there patiently. My biggest complaint is that by the pool, the wait staff there only serve the guests who seem to know them. I was never once asked for anything, but as soon as one of their favorite guests came to the pool they gave them towels, adjusted the umbrella, etc. Disappointing.

The hotel itself was nice but the rooms were very outdated. There is also no free wifi in the rooms and car service through the hotel was pricy. The security was good and I felt secure.

Though the hotel isn't modern, I must say it is fairly nice. Be sure to request a room with Pyramid views....and one with a balcony which leads out to the pool is a plus. The hotel is a quick cab ride away from the Pyramids and you likely should plan that visit with a local in lieu of the hotel directly. The prices offered were overpriced, but the locals can offer great deals. The room service/restaurant prices are more than fair and the food is delicious. There are three pools on the property, one with a waterfall.

This hotel was as close to the pyramids as they advertise. What a view! It is quite surreal to open your windows to that. The hotel itself was nice sleek and modern. Our room included breakfast and it was great with a lot of variety. My one complain would be about the rooms. Although they were roomy and comfortable it was not as clean as I would have expected. The carpets were grainy to the touch and didn't appear to be vacuumed. Also, room service is definitely not quick. I fell asleep waiting for my meal twice! On the whole, I enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hotel for the view alone if nothing else.

After a long flight from Newark via Paris and the chaos of Terminal 1 at Cairo airport, this hotel was a welcomed refuge. Very polite staff. Superb pool area. Giza is horrendous with everyone outside the hotel trying to get a dollar from every tourist. Hence the hotel became more of fortress under siege. 2 days is plenty only if you want to relax by the pool after touring the Pyramids. Breakfast was of low quality.

This hotel is in a great location with great views of the pyramids. The free wifi in the lobby was quite slow, but understandably so as there were so many people on at once. The worst part of this hotel is the bed. It was EXTREMELY hard and uncomfortable and we were told that it was the standard mattress of the hotel.

Location is very close to The Great Pyramids, but I don't recommend walking the site, due to the less than desirable neighborhood the hotel is in (get a taxi or tour guide). You can actually clearly see two pyramids from the pool & pool bar, I luv'd that! The pool(s) are nice and the one has a swim-up bar in the middle. The room was very nice, clean, with plenty of space, drawers, and amenities. The hotel has restaurants and the food pretty good, I enjoyed it and the Sakara beer.

This hotel is great. The bed was super comfortable. Room was super clean. The staff was helpful. Pool was always clean and accessible. The main dining room food was OK, but there's plenty of other options nearby as well. In room dining was really good, too. The location to me was great - one issue was getting a Taxi though. The hotel can get you a taxi, but they will absolutely charge you higher rates as a tourist, so I always went to the street to get a taxi, you just have to be patient since it's a VERY busy street. Otherwise, location is great. Pyramid view is AMAZING, can't beat it. And price was right on point.

The staff here is very friendly. They let me into my room while I called my bank to sort out my card. The pool area is really nice, the lobby is nice. You can see the pyramids from here and that never gets old. I will be staying here again when I come back in September.

amazing hotel which near from every historical places in cairo i really love it an i wish to stay there again

We had an amazing stay at the Le Meridien! The highlight of our trek was of course our camel ride visit to the great pyramids of Giza, which were just across the street and visible from our hotel by the pool area (which is fantastic, by the way!) We also enjoyed the food at the hotel as well as the evenings by the pool smoking hookah!

It's greatly located near to the pyramids if you plan to visit them more than twice. Has a nice swimming pool with great view to the pyramids, a nice jacuzzi, and gym. A con is that free wifi access is only available around the lobby.

We had a good experience but the hotel is like a community place for parties. Each night there was at least one weeding and lots of noice, One ngihtt threre were 3. We cannot stay in the lobby for all the noice. Staff were not kind as the hotel deserve. the Internet was interrupted many times. Hotel was clean and good.

Our room was exactly as and even better than I could have visualized on booking. The purpose of my visit was to realize a life-long dream of seeing the pyramids. To awake our first morning, open the curtains and see all three major pyramids in their entirety, glowing golden with the rising sun, caused us to sit every day on our balcony with breakfast watching the ever changing light-play on these icons of antiquity. The hotel couldn't be closer, couldn't have been more pleasant to stay in, and more thoughtful in the small things such as housekeeping staff. The Spa was just perfect, massages professional and thorough, and the attendants wonderful. Could be more extensive buffet choices and more indigenous Egyptian food offerings, but otherwise, a fantastic venue and gracious experience.

Dear Mr. Daniel, Thank you for your comments following your recent stay at Le Méridien Pyramids Hotel & Spa. I would, first of all, like to reiterate my sincere apologies for the inconvenience and upset you were caused. There is certainly no excuse for the poor staff attitude, standards and service you encountered, and I would like to assure you that remedial action has already been taken. I would also like to assure you that action has already been taken as a result of your comments. Staff in the Front Office and Recreations Departments have been reminded of their responsibilities and duties towards our guests, and of the need to maintain our usual high standards at all times. It is my hope that these events will not permanently mar your opinion of our hotel and that you will return to us again, when I am sure you will remember your stay for all the right reasons. Yours Sincerely,
