Cairo Pyramids Hotel, Alexandria Road, Giza, Egypt

cairo-pyramids-hotelThere are several hotels within site of the great pyramids, of which the Cairo Pyramids Hotel is one. It was an enjoyable stay and the view of the pyramids from the pool area is incredible. We were part of a tour group so took a bus from hotel to the pyramid sites, it is not far. Central Cairo is, however, quite a long drive.

Our room was clean and spacious. It was large and attractive, the bathroom was spotless. The air conditioner was running a lot but we feel the heat, so we were fine with that. The bed was comfortable.We found Cairo Pyramids Hotel a relaxing environment. The wifi was not good, but that did not impact our stay particularly.

The dining room we used was buffet style and catered to tour groups. Many groups were there all at once, especially in the mornings. While the food selections were adequate, they did veer towards Asian taste. Also the service was slow with as there were only a few waiting staff on duty.

Cairo pyramids pool

The Cairo Pyramids Hotel was clean, spacious and met our expectations of a 4-star hotel. It has a large pool with a swim-up bar. I would give the hotel 4-stars for the view from the pool alone. You can see 2 of the 3 pyramids, a dramatic welcome to our first day in Egypt. I would definitely use this hotel again.
