Recent guest reviews

I was unsure of traveling to Egypt and who to trust. We however, hit the jackpot when we did everything through this inn. The rooms and view are stunning and they have a special gift for hospitality. The Sphinx was looking right into our room. They arranged all tours and guides for a trip throughout Egypt and every minute was as incredible as the minute before. The security in Egypt is very good and we never felt unsafe. Their guides took us everywhere so we could relax and enjoy everything. They knew the best shops and places to eat and showed us what we would not have seen on our own.

I stood in the Pyramids View Inn for three nights. As a female traveler, I felt safe and secure in the area I was situated. The workers at the Inn were so hospitable and friendly. They treated me and my friend like family. In fact, when I wanted to go to the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, the hotel manager offered me a cell phone to contact him whenever I needed a ride back to the Inn! The cab driver he provided was exceptional and waited for us at the museum until we had to leave. The rooms were simple but the views provided were unbeatable. I felt so close to the pyramids, I thought I could touch them, if only I stretched out my hand. The balcony is open all day and night and you can see the night show since it’s merely a few feet away. An expense made free! They also make an effort to buy whatever food you want from the area. And in case you want to venture out for yourself, there’s a number of food establishments nearby. Some familiar (KFC/Pizzahut) and some new. Whatever the case, I had a phenomenal experience there. Please make sure to go. Egypt, though struggling, has beautiful people and a wonderful history. Go there.

I can be very brief about this place, it is simply amazing! Amazing view from the roof terrace, very friendly staff, good food and the entrance to the pyramids is literally only about 200m away from the hotel! Worth checking out for sure!

Good view.easy to Walk to arrive sound ad light show gate.easy to go to the valley temple.close to of and pizza hut and different other nice Egyptian restaurants such as Abu Shaqra and Baraghito. The rooms are clean service is perfect.and very nice people in

Just 2 minutes walk from the Pyramids main entrance. The majority of rooms have full view of one or more pyramids. Mohamed and his staff go out of their way to please the customer. It has a roof terrace where you can mingle with other guest an compare the day,s activities, even you can watch the nigth ligth show the days is on

Would recommend this hotel to anyone, the staff are friendly and helpful and make the stay even more enjoyable. Sitting on the roof terrace overlooking the pyramids is a wonderful way to end each day and you get the free light show. Kamel is a great host and would do anything to make your stay memorable.

We booked two pyramid view rooms at the hotel and had a great stay overall. The rooms both had balconies with amazing views of the pyramids and sphinx just outside. The air con worked great. We had dinner and breakfast upstairs on the roof top terrace, also with great views. One of our rooms had two twin beds with a private, ensuite bathroom. The other room had 1 queen bed and a private bathroom across the corridor. We also booked tours to the pyramids, Sakkara, Dahshur, and Memphis through the hotel that were excellent. Note: The light and sound show does take place just outside, so you will hear this in your room in the evenings. You can watch the show from the rooftop terrace too.

One thought: what a majestic view from our own hotel roof top! And over this the staff is so hospitable we get unlimited Tea coffee water free thought out our stay to enjoy our view. The breakfast was also very scrumptious, starting at 7am, helping us rush to the pyramids ticket office just downstairs by 7:15am. And the light and sound show is like our own private free show! This inn is definitely a must stay when visiting Giza from Cairo, because the experience of staring at the majestic pyramids so close so true is a privilege. Thank you Pyramids View Inn for this awesome memory!!

The view from the room and the roof top restaurant is amazing! We did'nt get to see the Laser Sound & Light show however since there was a Government event there that night. The breakfast spread is awesome - its a big breakfast so we had to push back lunch. The views are to die for - The Sphinx was literally staring in our face at night when we stood at our room's window. This was the highlight of our trip to Egypt!

This place was amazing. It was the first place we stayed in Egypt. Our airport pickup was waiting for us as arranged and easy to find. Then when we arrived and went up on to the roof, we couldn't believe our eyes. The pyramids proximity is almost unbelievable. Every morning for our 3 nights we had the best breakfast we encountered in Egypt - eggs, bread, halva, cheese, yoghurt, jam and copious amounts of tea and coffee. We could never finish it all and sometimes took the left overs for our lunch as we explored the pyramids and Saqara. The staff were lovely. Kamal was assigned to us for the duration of our stay and helped us sort out finding an ATM and a sim card. We loved the area too. Lots of smells and sounds from the horses that pull carts around the area and the sound and light show on every night so that you don't need to pay to go and see it. Food around the area was quite good - kushari, falafel and pizza all nearby. The ATMs in the area only give out a maximum of LE2000 so make sure you get some out at the airport or wait til you go into the city as small withdrawals lead to lots of bank fees. Our room was pretty good for the price and had a great view of the pyramids which I didn't expect. There was a kettle with tea and coffee and shampoo and soap in the bathroom. Our beds were comfy. I think is is really a do not miss experience in Egypt and so much better than just coming to the pyramids for one day.
