Magnificent view of the Giza pyramids! All the employees were very gracious and helpful. Hanging out on the rooftop with that view is in itself special...but you also get to see the sound and light show for free! It's very interesting to watch all the activity that goes on on the street in front of the hotel. We were very... More

I used this hotel as my base and it served the purpose. I wanted a place with a great view of the Pyramids that had the basic necessities, a bed, air con, hot shower, food, and wifi. I traveled extensively in Egypt and when I returned to my hotel room I needed the basic above necessities to keep me going.... More

I came here for my solo 30th birthday trip. I spent 3 days here and was treated like royalty. I was given home cooked meals by the owner and a birthday cake. I traveled alone and everyone went out of their way to make me feel comfortable, safe and to meet my every need. The owner was in town visiting... More

I rated this property 4 stars solely for the staff and the view. The view of the Pyramids/Sphinx is amazing. You can sit on the roof all day, and never get tired of it. Also, you are able to witness the nightly "sight and sounds" show, without the price of admission. Additionally, the staff is the greatest. Tito and Kamal... More

Stayed here just one night. Place was what you get. It's not a 5 star hotel. But a lovely old Egyptian home very near the pyramids. In fact, you can sit on the roof at there bar and watch the nightly show. Rooms was clean. I had a room with bathroom in it. My friends was down the hall. We... More

It was such a pleasure to stay at the Pyramids View Inn during our trip to Egypt. It was clean, comfortable, and the Staff were lovely. We were provided with everything we needed; unlimited bottled water/coffee/tea, breakfast (which was freaking amazing by the way) delivered to us either in our room or on the rooftop, transportation, and a kindness that...

This hotel was a wonderful experience for my college age daughter traveling on her own. From the airport pick up to check out, she felt safe and very comfortable. She thought the people of Cairo were wonderful, I'm sure in part because of how well she was treated at the Pyramids View Inn. This is a five star hotel in... More

This was my second stay. The Pyramid View Inn is top notch. The breathtaking view of the Sphinx and Pyramids from the terrace roof or balcony side room while sipping tea is spectacular.

It is a low budget inn.....from that perspective it is OK.. Nice view....staff is very helpful.... don't remember the names.... Those who want more of a four or five star accommodation with a view of the pyramids could consider Mena house....
